Today's Opinions

  • COLUMN: Editorial failed to present all the facts

    By MENDY LASSALINE
    Perry County Assessor

    This is in response to the May 5 Perry County News editorial titled “Assessor: Do what’s right for community.”

    I feel that a response is warranted and I will address some facts that were left out of the editorial. Since I was not contacted before this was printed, it is my duty to inform the community of what they were denied knowing.

  • COLUMN: Your first invitation ... eclipse party 8.21.17

    By VINCE LUECKE
    Editor

    Before you read any further, grab pen and paper and jot down the following: “Aug. 21, 2017. Solar eclipse party, New Boston.”

    I know the date’s more than three years way. But big events deserve preplanning and the first total solar eclipse for many of us is a milestone event.

    Lots of people will be hosting eclipse parties but I wanted to be first. I’m planning on having one heck of an event. Consider it an extra-early invitation.

  • EDITORIAL: Derogatory terms in team names should be changed

    For years several groups have been trying to get the Washington Redskins National Football League team to change its name.
