As a writer for Mother Jones magazine, Shane Bauer, author of "American Prisons," went undercover as a $9-per-hour corrections officer at Winnfield Correctional Center in Louisiana for Corrections Corporation of America to try to understand the life of a corrections officer. Reading of his e…

I want to say a big thank you to Gwen Green of the Highlands County Tax Assessor’s office and her supervisor. I was having a major issue with my driver's license due to an unusual situation with my RV purchase. I tried the Avon Park office. I tried my insurance company. I tried calling the s…

I wonder why there are not more events at the downtown Circle. There was a recent Fan Fest for the race. It was advertised that the hauler parade would be at 6 p.m. As of 5:50 p.m., the five to six haulers had already passed though the Circle.

“In answer to “Another religious viewpoint,” I would like to know where he studied American history? Another question comes to mind, has he ever visited Washington D. C. and toured the Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, and other memorials and read the writings on the walls? As I remember, ther…

As an American veteran I have had a belly full of the newly elected congressmen and women who promote socialism and communization and wanting to give the vote to illegals and to do away with our Constitution and our Judeo Christian laws based on the Bible.

The recent guest column diatribe aimed at President Trump would be hilarious if it weren't so inane. It's completely understandable why the writer and his ilk cannot accept the fact that Trump won, since the Clinton camp was absolutely positive they had the election bought and paid for. What…

The Lake Placid Garden Club held a plant sale on March 2 at the Lake Placid Journal Plaza. It was very successful with over 150 plants donated by garden club members from their yards and some gracious non-member donations. The customers were happy to contribute to our fundraiser, enjoyed the…

The story about our new agriculture commissioner, Nikki Fried, and her lackeys addressing gas pump skimmer fraud is fascinating. Since she is a lawyer from Fort Lauderdale, fraud is certain to be something she is more familiar with than agriculture. So perhaps there is at least one thing ove…

Hey Congress, I thought we all decided one way or the other, to leave our clocks alone. I know you think so little of the citizenry that we need help from you telling us when we should breathe, but even today's graduating students can tell time, if it is in a digital format!

Isn’t it interesting that Donald Trump threatened to sue any school he ever attended if they released his school records to the public. Why would he do that? Is it because he was such a poor student and his grades were so low it would be an embarrassment to him if revealed?

Twenty-plus years, Mr. Telesco (Sammy) was sentenced to 25 years in state prison for an armed robbery. He was released many years later and placed on probation. A few years ago, he took a honeymoon cruise and did not call his probation officer for permission; he was sent back to prison for 1…

With so many missives published lately concerning religion, I have a varying view which says that not everything revolves around religion. There have been multiple letters published in our paper proclaiming dozens of Bible verses and indicating that the U.S. Constitution was based on “Judeo-…

So much has been written about the long time problem of U.S. 27. This highway has been notorious for many years in a number of accidents and seems to be the breeding ground for bad driving.

Kudos to T. Scott Semrau’s guest column of March 5th. How accurate he was about the fatal crashes on U.S. 27. How many more people will be killed needlessly on U.S. 27 before someone takes responsibility?

In 2013, Reader's Digest voted Lake Placid the most interesting town under 2,000 population in the country. Why not make it the cleanest, too?

Please remember me and all those like us who are different and helpless without our guardian. They know us and love us and protect us every day, but Statute 768.21(8) takes that away.

The right to vote should not have been given to the millions who were given amnesty under President Reagan. Most of those who received citizenship and the amnesty did not fulfill their oath to obey our Constitution and our laws based on Judeo Christian laws, based on the Bible.

What is with the Dem's new darling A.O.C. and her New "Gangrene" Deal? Why worry, isn't the planet going to end in 12 years as she has stated? No more farting cows. What? How about most living species? They all fart, especially me in a crowded elevator for all to enjoy. M.A.G.A.= Make Alexan…

The word of God has three absolutes that all must face. One, God does not lie and if he did, the entire universe would collapse on itself and all would be gone. It is his word that holds all things together. Two, it is impossible to please him without faith, Hebrews 11:6 KJV. Three, without …

I was shopping at Publix last week on Wednesday. I got to the cash out and found out the specials were not good until Thursday. I said, "I'm so mad." The packer said, "And I'm so darn mad for you!" I had to laugh.
