Saturday morning, found it interesting to note. Sign says no trash service, take out what you bring in. Yet people left a personal garbage can? Full? So local critters can spread trash around. Might be good to remind folks it’s always good to clean up after yourself.

As citizens of Sevier County our individual circumstances and concerns vary. However, there have been times when, in the public interest, we have wisely chosen to stand together on common ground. The construction of the Sevier Valley Center and the expansion of the Cove View Golf Course are …

Mr. Ivie, Reaper, Sept. 5, p. 3A, complains about the Republicans when the greater fault is with Democrats. The civil rights challenge may bring many new voters to Pres. Trump. It is Democrats who “drag their feet” building the wall. The tax shake up provided benefits for over 90 percent of …

Once upon a time the Republican Party was a proud and forward-looking organization. It assisted Lincoln in winning the Civil War. Later, it guided the nation through reconstruction and the westward movement. As the United States entered the 20th century, Teddy Roosevelt became President of t…

A couple of weeks ago our seven-year-old daughter rode her bike to Glenwood. This might not normally be a big deal, but we live in Richfield. She was helping her father look for her younger brother, who was lost at the time. She started on the northwest end of Richfield and headed to the cit…

Sara, Reaper, Aug. 22, p. 2A, you are exactly correct. All of the political problems are our children’s problems because we refuse to deal with them. $22 trillion debt? Sanctuary cities with filth, disease and irresponsible elected representatives? Illegal aliens overrunning our borders? Sch…

It’s a convoluted and confusing world we live in today. A long time ago, when I was young, we had the fairness doctrine, which forced broadcasters to use one hour of their daily programming for the public good, and that hour was the news. Not infotainment for profit, but actual reporting tha…

With all the propaganda in globalist controlled Common Core Media, I can see we have great issues and confusion that has produced chaos on many levels in America and the world. About 100 years ago, a Leninist group created the National Education Association with the goal of over-throwing Ame…

I was making a quick trip into Lin’s and grabbing a few things I needed. As I was making my way out to my car, I decided to leave the cart inside and just carry my groceries. They were way heavier than I thought and as I limped out to my car, two teenage boys asked me if I needed help. Was i…

Do you remember the classic movie, The Manchurian Candidate, staring Laurence Harvey? It was released in 1962, which may have come before your time. It is a tale about secrecy and intrigue—of how a foreign power conspired to place their handpicked person in line to become President of the Un…

Mr. Ivie (Reaper, July 25, p. 3A), Pres. Trump is not a racist. The Democrats in Washington refer to everyone who disagrees with them racist to the point that the term is meaningless.

Regarding his letter of July 25th, it should not surprise that Dr. Ivie calls on Plato to show how a ‘good’ society ought to function.

I am writing in response to a letter written by McVoy Barben regarding the management of lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Fishlake National Forest on Monroe Mountain. Barben takes issue with the use of prescribed fire to restore Quaking aspen forests that have been overrun by …

What makes for a healthy society? Certainly it must have a fair measure of cohesiveness—a common agreement about its core values. Without such a shared sentiment, the word society is a contradiction in terms. Plato recognized this fact long ago. “Does not the worst evil for a state arise fro…

I hear a lot about dreamers these days and their sad plight. What does that mean and why are they getting so much attention? There has always been and always will be dreamers and that is good, because it motivates the human condition to a higher level. However, the dreamers we hear about in …
