  • LETTER: On the Woodlawn Springs debacle

    To the editor,
    As I left my home this morning for work, I could not help but notice what appeared to be a family of three jogging along the cart paths of the now defunct Woodlawn Springs Golf Course. It was a pleasure to see and a reminder of why our Fiscal Court of Nelson County should consider acquiring the property as an addition to our County Recreation Department. Given its proximity to the current Dean Watts Park only separated by Highway 605 (Woodlawn Road) it would be a somewhat contiguous addition to our existing parks and recreation program.

  • OPINION: RFK’s legacy still strong after half a century

    In my office at Transylvania University was a framed image of Robert F. Kennedy with these words: “The task of leadership, the first task of concerned people, is not to condemn or castigate or deplore; it is to search out the reason for disillusionment and alienation, the rationale for protest and dissent — perhaps, indeed, to learn from it.”

  • OPINION: Scant turnout makes political defeat bitter

    Most of us remember where we were when President Kennedy was assassinated, at least those of us my age or older. We also are well aware what we were doing on that infamous day of Sept. 11, 2001, or “9-11.”

    Candidates such as I, who come up a bit short on votes on election night, also have that memory etched into our brains forever.

    You know where you were and who you were with when that realization came over you that all the hard work and all the money spent were just not going to be enough to get you to the victory lane.

  • EDITORIAL: Echoes of the past

    In 2018, modern-day American society has its struggles, from the prolonged fight against terrorism to violence in our schools to providing affordable health care and many more issues. It might be understandable for this generation to think its members face issues more serious than any before it.

  • OPINION: What to call racist remarks instead of ‘racist remarks’

    So, someone has said something racist. But you don’t want to SAY they have said something racist. That would be upsetting! What do you do?
