Stan Ivie, Reaper, Nov. 7, p. 2A, must have jumped the gun on the “impeachment hearings” as they only were going on in secret behind closed doors. His statements indicate he was at the secret meetings and may be using the Reaper to leak selected “facts.” I understand Chm. Schiff will open th…

Trump is having a bad week. Impeachment hearings are proving Trump committed bribery and extortion on a foreign power for political favors. Then he was found guilty of using his charitable foundation for a slush fund for personal use. He is fined two million dollars and banned from ever havi…

The results of last week’s elections were somewhat disappointing.  The information shows that of the over ten thousand registered voters in Sevier County, only five thousand four hundred seventy one voters cast their ballot, just over fifty four percent. That shows that a great amount of apa…

Religions are probably the biggest longest lasting con that has ever existed on this planet. How people can believe that what we do in this less than a minute speck in time (when it comes to eternity) determines where we will spend the rest of eternity is mind blowing. It would be fine for p…

I don’t get it. Sara Straw, Reaper Oct. 31, p.2A, complains volumes but offers no solutions. She comments on an unbalanced budget but wants total government health insurance and a larger Department of Education. Neither is constitutionally authorized. However, if she wants less government an…

Groucho Marx left us with a classic line: Who are you going to believe, me or your own lying eyes? The Commentators at Fox News ask us the same question nightly. Hannity, Carlson, and Ingram all have their minds made up long in advance of having to grapple with the facts or trying to discern…

I loved that the change of time also signaled a change of pace. When it got dark earlier in the fall, things seemed cozier, less hurried. In the spring, when the day was suddenly an hour longer, everything came alive. Now, daylight saving time is just a big pain in the neck. The pace of ever…

Veterans Day does not have an apostrophe. A lot of people think it’s “Veteran’s Day,” but they are incorrect. The holiday is not a day that “belongs” to one veteran or multiple veterans which is what the apostrophe implies. It’s a day honoring all veteran, so no apostrophe is needed.

I do not understand a need for ALL of Sevier County residents to pay for this extravagant Community Development Center. How many communities in Sevier County already have a swimming pool? How many communities in Sevier County already have a walking/jogging/bicycle path in place (constructed …

I’m grateful for the opportunity to write in support of the proposed Sevier Community Development Center. It’s been inspiring to see the efforts of engaged friends and neighbors working side by side with our various community, civic, educational, and business leaders, who have the vision and…

Stan Ivie, Reaper, Oct. 24, p. 3A, is concerned about a horror movie but appears to look in the wrong places for solutions. Congressional republicans crashed a secret democratic meeting trying to uncover some fault of Pres. Trump. Chm. Schiff couldn’t leave fast enough. One would think Mr. I…

I cannot believe the blatant age discrimination you displayed in your Cruise Control column Oct. 17, of this year. “Most 80-years-old’s don’t drive fast cars.”

Even though I live in the north end of the county, I am in favor of the new activity center in Richfield for two reasons:

Today’s society has been so devoid of real authentic history of USA and world that they no longer understand what liberty and freedom truly are and who designed it. Neither do they understand who the author of all forms of tyranny, control are. If you seek liberty and freedom of choice then …

Every now and then a television commercial comes up with a very clever line. Picture a small group of young people who are in a tizzy about how to escape from a dark and spooky place. The voice explaining the commercial says: “If you are in a horror movie, you make poor decisions. That is ju…

In response to the photo in the Oct. 17 edition of The Reaper, I’m not sure whether to shame you or applaud you for showing this picture to the public. Some of us take offense to seeing this published in our local paper.
