Fiasco in Franklin

Dear Editor: In today's world of newspapers, it often reeks of a stale environment when it comes to reporters actually reporting and the opinionated writing of columnists. What a deep breath of fresh morning air when reading two particular articles in your Sunday edition. Nat Harwell's column on his remembrance of his dad's respect for our national anthem and the commitment of veterans everywhere was especially moving and sincere. Say what you want about Nat, but his columns do make you think, not only about Newton County, but most importantly, the state of affairs in the entire ...

Guest editorial: As an American, what is worth defending?

As an American, I have the right to be a citizen of America. I have the right to make my own choices too. I also have the right to wake up and go to school and get an education. I get an education because we have freedom. Men and women give their lives every day to fight for our freedom.

Veterans make this country a better place to live. I only wish the veterans that died could see what they did for their country. Armed forces fight together to save and protect this country. These are reasons why I think ...

Don't pass it!

Dear Editor: On Saturday night the health care reform bill passed the U.S. House by a vote of 220-215. Well, they in Washington have done it again. They have passed this bill without listening to the people. This health care reform is suppose to cost only about $ 1.5 trillion over the next ten year so they say. I could see that being possible when you see that they will be cutting the Medicare by about $500 million. I do not think it will just cost $1.5 trillion just because has there been any thing like this in ...

More than self their country loved

My daddy stood up and put his hand over his heart every time our national anthem was played, and when it was over, he wiped tears from his eyes. It didn't matter where we were or how many people were around, either. When the flag passed in a parade, Daddy's hand was on his heart and tears were in his eyes. At high school football games, right after the preacher prayed the pre-game invocation over the loud speakers, when the band played "The Star-Spangled Banner" Daddy stood at attention, faced the flag and got misty-eyed.
