Bob Bates alleged voter suppression in his letter. If it is true that individuals are not voting because of suppression making it too difficult, I fully agree that the situation needs to be resolved. Every citizen should be able to vote with reasonable effort on their part, an equal effort n…

I’ve had reason to use Nextdoor.com for a couple of years, primarily to keep track of payments into an escrow account I had set up for a rebuild of the Brookfield neighborhood sign and some culvert repair. On occasion, I’ve vented about infrastructure, speeders, and once grudgingly commended…

Erin, I sympathize with your recent car trouble, but look on the bright side: at least yours only made “all the wrong kinds of noises”. I know from personal experience that there are worse things that can happen.

The United States is fairly unique in the world in that power is willingly and peacefully transferred. This isn’t because we’re an especially docile people – quite the opposite. It is because we have an agreement through laws in place to ensure fair elections so that we know we can change pe…

It seems that Bob Bates (Jan. 31) as well as many others are up in arms about climate change and what we can do about it. The sky is NOT falling! The earth’s climate is always in flux and always has been. There are periods of lower temperatures and periods of warmer temperatures. Over the la…

My friend Joseph states “Our senators violated the constitution on Jan. 6” when they refused to reject the electoral vote counts from some states. Another recent letter stated “the presidential election was rigged.” If those statements are true then we as a nation must rise up and correct th…

This letter is in response to Mr. Tatum’s rebuttal of my letter to the editor regarding election fraud. Mr. Tatum provided nothing in his letter other than parroted talking points he repeated from the liberal news media. Obviously, he has not taken the time nor cared enough to seek out the t…

From my experience, and from what I’ve heard other folks say over the years, Tennessee typically lags behind other more progressive parts of the country by about 10 years primarily because of political beliefs.  Whether this is right or wrong is not the point, but when it comes to certain cr…

What I witnessed last night, Jan. 6, 2021, was the fall of the American Republic, as dishonest, self-righteous, tyrannical politicians, under the guise of protecting the voices of the people, ignored the voices of millions of people who know in their hearts, based on overwhelming evidence, t…

In response to the front page article in the 12/27 Sunday paper, all I can say is that I am enraged. Not only am I enraged at the blatant racism -- yes, racism, not a slight politically incorrect faux paus -- of one of the representatives of this town posing in front of a confederate flag, I…

You must be the one joking, Mr. Ray Artman. Trump gave me four years of hell. Can’t go or do anything. How can a Christian say dirty words and say things like drink Clorox and grab a woman by her (blank) and she will do anything you want her to do? All I can say, if she does, she is not a wo…
