In Our Opinion

  • If you care about the future, attend Owen drug forum

    Every community in the United States typically has a drug problem to one extent or another.
    Typically, the people who make up the community turn a blind eye and hope drug addiction doesn’t touch their family.
    Owen County isn’t a typical community.
    Thursday night, local law enforcement, medical professionals and local government will reach out to the community for help from the people who make up this community.

  • I'm just saying: Just because you can doesn't mean you should

    There is an old saying in journalism that I used to share with the reporters and photographers. I usually applied it to people retouching pictures with Photoshop.
    “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should,” I would tell them.
    That axiom couldn’t have been more true than a couple of weeks ago when a New York area newspaper published an on-line interactive map of registered gun owners in parts of their coverage area.
    The paper obtained the names and addresses through normal public records requests.
