Today's Opinions

  • Unlocking competition

        Sometimes the Senate, House and even the White House can work together.
        That seems to be the case in the  Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act.
        The Act passed unanimously through both the Senate and House recently and has been inked into law by President Obama. It’s a common-sense law that benefits the consumer and should increase competition among wireless companies.

  • The blissful state of being a liberal

        They say ignorance is bliss and I’ve always felt that liberals must be very blissful people. How else can one explain why the believe the things they advocate?
        Maybe I’m being a bit harsh, but they do seem to express a very limited knowledge and awareness of the world around them. Rick Howell gave us an example of this last week in his Liberal Agenda.
        In an effort to prove that Barack Hussein Obama is not a Muslim, he wrote:

  • Looking beyond the mid-terms

        After Labor Day, voters will finally start to pay attention to mid-term elections around the country.
        While there are certainly some high-profile choices, it seems likely that nothing much will change the dynamics in Washington.
        Republicans have hopes of taking control of the U.S. Senate, and most of the seats being defended are Democratic. But Democrats have a shot at taking GOP seats in a few states, most notably Kentucky and Georgia.

  • Residents have second chance on a great opportunity

        For everyone who will ever need healthcare in our area, the CENTRA hosted Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, Aug. 14, was a chance to see the future of our community hospital.

  • A pro-consumer, pro-competition policy

    Have you ever wanted to switch wireless carriers, but keep the same phone? Or have you purchased a used phone recently and planned to activate it on a different wireless network? It seems like common sense to me. Consumers who have completed their phone contracts or have purchased a used phone should be able to activate their device on their network of choice. However, if you’ve tried to do that in the last year, you know that this simple action is no longer allowed under current law. But, that’s about to change.

    Committed to recycling

        I noted in your August 6, 2014, edition a letter to the editor from Ellen Mackey concerning the action of the Town Council to discontinue curbside recycling.  Mrs. Mackey in her letter mentioned a July 24, 2014, meeting of Council at which many pro recycling citizens expressed their disappointment in the discontinuance of curbside recycling.

    25th Anniversary Extravaganza

        On behalf of the Board and Staff of The Sedalia Center, I write to share our deep appreciation of your coverage of the Center’s annual fundraiser, our 25th Anniversary Extravaganza held August 2. 
        In times when many private non-profit organizations have struggled to make ends meet, it is both humbling and a source of pride that we have been able to bring the art of living and the living arts to everyone in our region for a quarter century.

    Promoting
    recycling

        As of July 1, 2014, the Town of Bedford discontinued curbside recycling. 
        Many residents were discouraged and confused as to why this program ended. At the July 24 Council meeting, many pro- recycling citizens expressed their disappointment in the discontinuation of curbside recycling in Bedford. . Thanks to all who showed up and expressed concern for this important service.
