Today's Opinions

  • Dog Days can't be blamed for everything

    Meth lab “accidentally” blows up house in Panama City. Crook robs store, then comes back to ask clerk for a date. Dog sells for $582,000 in China. Man marries ex-wife and then “remembers” during the second reception why he ditched her originally. Tiger Woods hits a ball into the water.

    You talk about strange headlines in the past week! It’s got people talking about the apocalypse. I’m trying to be an “anchor of reason” amid this chaotic exposition.

  • We thank you for the free advertising

    An article appeared in a another area newspaper recently that I’d like to comment on. I won’t name the newspaper or the person who wrote the article, because I don’t want to give them any unnecessary attention. I do however, wish to speak my mind on the situation.

    The article was an unabashed, libelous attack on me and on the Times, and didn’t even prove anything. I was amazed it was placed on the front page.

  • Come together...and help the Hispanic community

    I am happy that the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office has taken the initiative to address the problems that have been rampant in the Hispanic community. For the past several years I have noticed instances of crimes against Hispanics have been on the rise. Also, what stands out in police reports is the phrase "no suspects and no witnesses." The victims refuse to provide information to authorities on how the crime occurred. There have been instances when a Hispanic victim who has been shot or stabbed will not provide even the basic information.

  • Special 'cheerleader' teaches us all a valuable lesson

    I met Albert through football. We’re going out to play Blountstown a few years back and I hear “Coach, coach!” Most of the time I don’t even look up. I’ve got the upcoming game on my mind, “Coach, coach!” I’m trying to remember if I’ve explained to Sidney if they run that buck sweep and the guard pulls, he’s got to look for that tackle blocking down, “Coach, COACH!”

  • School leaders thank contributors

    With many schools in the Gadsden County school district in need of volunteers and supplies, several organization are lending a helping hand to the teachers and students of St. John Elementary.

  • Martial arts instructor offers advice

    I read your article by Chris McGoey on the tear gas explanation in the Sept 3 issue. I would like to comment on personal safety.

  • Reader questions rep on presidential support

    Due to the constraints of time, I have been unable to attend Rep. Allen Boyd's town hall meetings, so I choose this public forum.

    I commend you for your service to our country. That was then...this is now.

    You were one of 219 congressmen to vote for that deplorable tax and trade bill. Now you are going around the district explaining yourself away about the Obama health care bill. Congressman, this is a no-brainer. Vote no!

  • It's not about race, it's about encouraging the kids

    It seemed the whole country went nuts last week as it was announced that President Barack Obama would be visiting America’s classrooms via a live podcast on the White House Web site.
