  • Students, Parents get ready for schools' opening on Tuesday

    In just a few short days the 2012-13 school year will get underway.
    Stores will likely be bustling this weekend with the last-minute back-to-school shopping... and students are eager to get back into the classroom.
    This is where you hear the familiar sound of a record being scratched.
    OK, not every student is ready to go back, but don’t you remember the excitement of the first day of school?

  • Food Pantry low on funds

    To the editor:
    It is time for an update on the food pantry. The pantry has been doing real well through the past two months but with school being out and the recession being bad, it has finally caught up with us and we are now feeling the pinch.
    We have seen more clients in this summer, some are new one and then some that has not been there for a year or so, with this being the case, it means we have had to purchase more. The donations, monetary and food drives have been down and it is beginning to hit us.

  • River is not a trash can

    To the editor:
    I went fishing in the river and while I was wading couldn’t help noticing trash which is always sadly expected. You can’t go anywhere in the world without seeing human garbage but what surprised me was the amount of tires in the water. I’m sure not all of them are from this county and for a lot of folks including myself every dollar counts in todays times but discarding tires in our waterways isn’t the answer.

  • Thanks for all the community support

    To the editor:
    It is an honor to follow Mike Reitz as head coach of the Thorobred basketball program. I’m optimistic about the upcoming basketball season. We recently completed a youth basketball camp and we entertained a total of 91 future Thorobred campers during the week. Community involvement enhanced our week.

  • OK, let’s stop!

    The other morning my friend and co-worker Cristy and I devised a solution for all the major problems of the universe.
    Everybody stop.
    Just stop. Take a breath. Step back. Chill out.
    Politicians, stop politicking. Forget about focus groups and pork spending and back room deals and war room strategies. Democrats aren’t evil and neither are Republicans, so stop treating people with whom you disagree as enemies. We’re all Americans, so stop!

  • Ask God to enlighten our minds during voting

    To the editor:
    I am a Christian, Catholic, veteran; along with my two brothers we served 54 years. Needless to say, we are proud of our heritage and we served to protect.
    However, our present president and some of the legislators, have failed to realize the contents of our constitution- “protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
    Look at the accomplishments of our present president and legislators who are seeking re-election.
    1) ”We are not a Christian country.”

  • Berry post office needs help

    To the editor:
    This letter concerns the patrons serviced in the 41003 zip code area. Are you aware the Berry Post Office is in jeopardy? The postal district has decided to cut the operating hours to three or four a day. The next step most probably will be to close the office all together. All the details have not been finalized as of this date.
