The deadly Coronavirus or Covid-19 was announced in January 2020 here in the United States. There was little information given to us until early March. The president went about setting up a task force to get involved in researching this virus. Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, the CDC and…

Mr. Denby's hatred for Mr. Knowis should give every voter in Tullahoma pause and wonder what exactly his agenda is.  Now he is claiming Mr. Berry has more experience than Mr. Knowis even though he has been an alderman less than a year.  He is exaggerating what Berry has accomplished. We all …

On this day of Rep. John Lewis’ funeral, I submit some necessary, good trouble.

In February, Mr. Trump called the coronavirus a hoax; if you survive, remember that in November. Meanwhile, Governor Bill Lee Goat signs a heartbeat bill for the unborn. If the heartbeat belongs to a future protester; however, you can go ahead and abort them because he has no intention of ta…

I would like to response to G. Lamar Wilkie letter to the editor on July 12, 2020 published in the Tullahoma News. Mr. Wilkie wrote that America is under siege by Leftists trying to tear down our history and destroy the very fabric of our society. He stated these people are demanding “Democr…

My grandmother used to tell a story about two identical twin brothers, who attended school with her in Hickman Kentucky. They were like two peas in a pod, inseparable, yet in spite of their devotion, they would fight each other like cats and dogs. When they did fight, their battles were effe…

Questions come to mind after reading Joe Denby’s hit piece on Ray Knowis on the front page of the July 12 issue. The first would be why would the Tullahoma News print an article so thinly disguised as political commentary but clearly filled with personal animus toward the mayoral candidate? …

As a 52 year resident of Tullahoma and avid reader of The Tullahoma News, I was in utter disbelief upon reading the front page of Sunday, July 12, 2020 issue. In my 52 years of reading The Tullahoma News I do not recall a single time the journalistic standards of unbiased reporting was delet…

On July 9, Tullahoma City Schools made the decision to send students back to the classroom in 20 days, on July 29. The decision was announced by new TCS Director Catherine Stephens in what is a major call in her first months on the job, and, in my opinion, a dangerous one. The decision, acco…

I have a concern. I have made several observations on visits to businesses locally over the course of the pandemic. The social distancing measures are being ignored. They are meant to help protect each of us from health risks associated with the virus.

America is under siege by leftists’ intent on tearing down our history and destroying the very fabric of our society.
