• Don’t preach to me

    Joe Guthrie’s response, (The Money Party)  to Joe Yates’ column in the June 5th edition of the Local, “Feeding the poor steals from the rich”,  was not the response I was hoping for.
    Stealing, regardless of who it is from is wrong, period.  Stealing from the rich is just as sinful as stealing from the poor.  Sin is sin.  Yates, and Guthrie’s thought process is jilted and filtered through Democrat ideology.  

  • Misuse may lead to reason
  • A letter of thanks
  • The Money Party

    Joe Yates’ June 5 column pleased me particularly because of his mention of the  comments of Rep. Juan Vargas, wherein he reminded us of Jesus’ concern for and allegiance to the poor. It inspires the question: What kind of Christians are these conservatives? They wave the Bible at us as they campaign for office, but cast their votes like anybody but Jesus when it comes to the most vulnerable of our brethren.

  • A big applause

    I would like to send out a big applause to New Castle for their great Spring Fling, especially the parade. It was great.

    I especially want to extend a great applause and salute to Jeff and Pam Thoke  for all the time, work and effort, they put into  making it so pleasant for the Veterans. The time and expense they extended will never be forgotten.  It was so pleasant and well planned.

    Thanks again and I’m sure all of the veterans and especially myself will never forget all you did.

    Herman Stanley

  • Serve with a salute
  • Paying your respects

    While visiting the cemetery you may notice the headstones marking certain graves have coins on them left by previous visitors to the grave. These coins have distinct meaning when left on the headstones of those who have served or have given their life while serving in America’s military and these meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin.

  • Innovation and motivation

    If you have watched the news recently you know the space industry has moved from the government to the private sector. With this shift, humanity has a tremendous opportunity to secure the survival and expand the potential of our species. But the companies working on space travel need your interest in the subject to have the market motivation to pursue it.

    Several companies such as SpaceX, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin have started testing and developing the next generation of spacecraft and have even sent supplies to the International Space Station.

  • Sheriff and others to be commended

    On Saturday, April 27, Henry County Sheriff Danny Cravens participated in the national Drug Take Back Day.

    He and several of his deputies volunteered their time to host the event, which encourages citizens to bring their unwanted or unused prescription medications to a specific location for safe disposal. This protects the homeowner in a number of ways, including theft prevention.
