  • Our view: This is Gadsden County's time

    As the Great Recession continues with no leadership from Washington D.C. and a state government that seems bent on punishing its own residents, economic growth for Gadsden County will only happen through local leadership, commitment and perseverance.

    The pursuit of economic development and growth in this current climate is not for the meek or anyone easily discouraged. It will also require an energetic unity, goods lines of communications and wearing one's community pride like a badge.

  • Challenges await Gadsden County's 2011 graduates

    Soon, members of the class of 2011 will step into the world amid optimistic speeches and witty greeting cards. Some will step seamlessly into their next phase in life, be it continuing education or gaining employment. For many, however, the state of the economy and corresponding high unemployment rate will stand as a barrier in efforts to engage society.
    It’s critical those clutching their new diplomas understand that, by graduating, they have proven something to their family, friends and the world: They are achievers.

  • Don't be fooled by the nice weather

       I put off my spring flower planting. It wasn't easy either.
        I didn't make the same mistake this year as I did last year. I didn't let the weather fool me with the few warm days we have experienced in the past weeks. Not that I wasn't tempted to go to garden shops and bring home a truck filled with tender flowers just waiting for me to put in the ground. Just like babies, they look so cute when they're little.

  • Senator’s book deal illustrates ethical void

    THE ISSUE: Back-scratching on the taxpayer tab.


    OUR OPINION: Not acceptable.

  • OUR VIEW: Old specter of racial discrimination haunts Gadsden County

    It was a small rally, but the speakers made some pretty strong points.
    After all, the crowd had come out to rally against "racial discrimination." Racial discrimination in Florida's only black majority county in 2011. Just the idea seems strangely out of date and out of touch with what we like to think of as modern America. Even the advance flyers for the event sounded like they could have been printed for the last century.
    But now we have a high profile lawsuit, or several hanging on that very serious allegation.

  • High school students keep us busy

    You can stay pretty busy keeping up with Gadsden County's high school students.

    And we are proud to cover and promote the continuing achievements of our young adults in sports, academics and community involvement.

    In the past two weeks, the Gadsden County Times has enjoyed the opportunity to put the spotlight on outstanding high school students from our area who have made their mark in different ways.
