  • Letter to the editor: Crupper Hammons will faithfully serve the people

    I have served in the public arena for more than three decades, most recently as State Auditor, and I am proud to support Wanda Crupper Hammons for state representative in the 61st District.
    Wanda has lived her life in public service and is following in the footsteps of her father, the well respected former state legislator, Clay Crupper.  As a professional EMT, Wanda has proven her commitment to serving the public with diligence and integrity.

  • Letter to the editor: Can we survive a second term?

    Did you know President Obama was the:
    • First president to demand the name Jesus be covered before he would speak at a Catholic university.
    • First at a UN world conference to say, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
    • First to say, “Let Israel defend herself by herself.”
    • First president refusing to provide the Congressional Intelligence Committee with documents revealing names and extent of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration unto U.S. government.

  • Letter to the editor: Hammons cares about Owen countians

    I’m writing this letter in support for Wanda Crupper Hammons for state representative. My husband, Johnny Stewart, and I met Wanda and her husband Dewayne while campaigning during the Owen County fair this summer. We had never met Wanda so I asked her several questions regarding politics and problems with our economy, etc. As we chatted with each other I mentioned to her that my father was very ill and had been transported to the hospital, cutting our conversation short.

  • Letter to the editor: We need God back in the White House

    We as a country and a county need to get back with God and our Lord and savior. You always see and hear, “God bless America.” If you look around you he did back through the years. We have fallen away from him. He hasn’t fallen away from us.
    We Christians have let things creep upon us like a frog in warm water that sits there and is boiled before it knows about it and it’s too late.
    Prayer out of school, same-sex marriage, no Ten Commandments when or where we want them. abortion, (5there are) lots of sin in our world, all around us.

  • Letter to the editor: Students looking for old Owen pictures

    We are members of Mrs. Inman’s Owen County Elementary School Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP) group. Our group is currently working on a project that uses technology to capture Owen County from the past to the present.
    We wanted to get our community involved in our project. If anyone has any information or copies of pictures on Owen County from 1819 through the 1900s, we would be very thankful. Also, if possible, we would like a picture of Col. Abraham Owen, the man from which Owen County was named.

  • Letter to the editor: God has a lot to do with elections

    At the recent Democratic National Convention the delegates took a vote to take God out of the platform. Why did Obama and some speakers end their speeches with God bless America? Were they praying and to whom were they praying? If they were praying to God, whose word is the Bible? I believe God may not bless a nation whose laws makes abortion legal.

  • Letter to the editor: Arm yourself with facts before you vote

    What does President Obama mean by fundamentally changing America? For starters, how about the Constitution? President Obama said the Constitution was written by a bunch of old men and needed to be rewritten due to the Constitution being antiquated. President Obama took an oath to uphold the Constitution, not destroy the Constitution. The Constitution gives us freedom of speech, freedom of the press and the second amendment right to keep and bear arms.

  • Letter to the editor: Firefighters appreciate community support
