Today's Opinions

  • What's the least you'll do it for?

    True creative genius is seldom appreciated, and sometimes flashes of brilliance can be blinding to those all around you.

    Why, just the other day I had such an occurrence when I hollered for Cindy and . . .

    “Cindy, come here, come here, come here!!!”

    “What now?”

    “I just had a flash of brilliance and know how to get filthy rich.”

    “Really? Well, that’s great.  I’m going back to watch television.”

    “Don’t you want to hear my idea?”

  • Readers Write: Health care: Wake up America!

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to address the government health care proposal.

    On the surface, it looks like a great idea. All of the “poor people” will be able to access medical services at little or no cost to them. I think it was 46 million with no coverage who will be brought under the government’s plan.

    That is great until one looks at the cost, or who is going to pay (that is you and me — the ones who have worked and saved all of our lives to try to have a decent, secure retirement).

  • What's for dinner? Leftovers!

    “The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for 30 years, she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.”

    Calvin Trillin

    We always have a lot of leftovers at our home.  Did you know leftovers could be dangerous in certain circumstances?  You should read the rest of this article to discover why.

  • Readers Write: Reader wants to promote attendance at tax hearing

    Dear Editor,

    This is an important notice to Washington County tax payers.

    The school board is asking for a general fund tax levy of 52.9 percent this year! This is 2 percent over the compensating increase of 50.9 percent.

    Your only chance to voice your opposition to this additional increase is at the school board meeting Wednesday, Aug. 26 at Central Office, 120 Mackville Hill.

  • College move-in day

    I have a degree in liberal arts. Do you want fries with that?

  • Readers write: County native is proud of judicial center

    Dear Editor,

    Growing up in Washington County (White Hall) I always felt pride in our court house.

    I take The Sun, and when the issue came with the pictures of the new judicial center, I was so filled with pride, and awe, and we came to see it one Saturday this summer.

    Wow! It is so majestic and so beautiful, and I am sure Mr. Lincoln is proud to be standing “on guard”.

    Of course, we saw only the outside. Someday, maybe I can come and see the inside!

  • Readers Write: Theater group is Disney bound

    To the Editor,

    As you have all heard, the cast of Grease has been honored with an invitation to perform at Disney this October, and you can see by our list of fund raisers, the kids and their families have invested a lot of sweat and heart into this project.  These fundraisers are to defer the expense of travel and lodging, and any additional funds will be put into an account to support student scholarships.  

  • It's time to support our school system

    A big step was taken last Thursday night by the Washington County school board members, and I feel it was a step in the right direction.

    Robin Cochran was hired as the new superintendent of schools, filling a position that was vacated when Rob Stafford resigned earlier this year. Stafford was hired at the start of last school year, and his tenure here was quite short, but understandably so. With some family concerns on his mind, Stafford left Washington County to be closer to home, his wife and two young children, and I don’t see how anyone can blame him for that.
