Today's Opinions

  • Businesswoman gives credit where due

    East Gadsden High School held its Senior Class Night May 20, themed "A Night with the Stars." It's a tradition that has come to be expected. The young ladies were beautiful in their extravagant gowns and the young gentlemen were handsome and ready to take on the world in their tuxedos. How lovely they all looked.

    The gymnasium was decorated by caring hands to fit the theme. The program noted that the decorations were done by Special Occasions by Robin; however, we offer a much-needed correction and recognition for those responsible for it.

  • Fund raiser thanks supporters

    Sincerest thanks to everyone who helped me raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Together we raised over $1,800.  This was done through the contributions of friends and our fourth annual yard sale.

  • Sheriff thanks employees, community for support

    I, (Gadsden County) Sheriff Morris A. Young, along with the GCSO employees, would like to personally thank the citizens and business owners for their donations and contributions during our fundraising event for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. Because of caring people like you, the ACS will one day find a cure for this dreaded and devastating disease.

  • Missing the good parts of paying my bills

    There are two businesses that have in the past 18 months closed their offices here that I really miss. Well, I don’t really miss the businesses because they're still here, but I miss going in to pay my bill.

    The telephone office has been closed over a year and I still can't remember to pay my bill. When I get the statement in the mail, instead of paying it immediately, I procrastinate. In the old days when payment was due all I had to do was jump in the car and get to the telephone company before closing.

  • Resident sees wrongdoing in commission meetings

    Will somebody, anybody, education Gadsden County commission chairman Eugene Lamb as it relates to citizen input during the commission meetings? Lamb seems to think that a citizen giving his or her opinion about an issue must be in line with his thinking.

  • Parents thank teachers

    The parents of the 2008-9 Metropolitan Christian Academy kindergarteners would like to recognize Mrs. Brent and Mrs. Wilson for their outstanding work in opening our children’s minds to new ideas, serving as excellent mentors, and helping to create exemplary citizens.  Their compassion and devotion to our children is priceless.  They have proven to be vital in helping our little ones to mature, to understand the world and to understand themselves.

  • Historian seeks help of local residents

    Ramsey Summerford was one of over 5,000 child laborers that were photographed by social activist Lewis Hine from 1908 to 1917. Nearly all of the photos are posted on the Library of Congress Web site. Hine’s pioneering work in photojournalism was instrumental in helping to get state and federal child labor laws passed.
