I am not in favor for Kavanaugh, but this latest slam is our world today. A teen that is arrested has their offense removed from their record and can learn from the experience and live a normal life, but if they don't learn, they will commit another crime and create a new record. They never …

I wonder how many readers, besides me, look at the name of the letter writer to determine if it's worth their time and effort to bother reading it. These prolific writers have one theme, time after time, and it's their uncompromising hate for one political party or the other.

In Mike Lee's article Monday, Sept. 17, I saw need to differ with some of his "opinions." Because teachers or anyone else feel they are entitled to make money doesn't, in my opinion, make me believe they are saying they are "inherently deserving of privileges of special treatment."

Let the bloodletting begin as we go into the election cycle we affectionately refer to as the “midterms.” Both parties are now at full throttle to destroy each other and give the public another taste of dysfunctional government actions. The Republicans are hanging on by their fingernails to …

Like the ancient biblical plague of locusts, Senator Nelson emerges from hibernation every six years or so (election time) to tell we Floridians of all the wonderful things he's done to make our lives better. Really? What so, pray tell?

Fathom the hypocrisy of a political party drumming up a fictional, anonymous woman who said she knew something bad about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that supposedly happened 37 years ago, when he was a minor child. Instead of reporting this "egregious" act to the police at the time…

Trump has made many claims about the economy. I have an IRA and it has been doing great since Trump took office. That same IRA has been doing great since 2010.

I have often said that change does not come by voting alone. It comes from women that wanted to vote or to ride on the bus enough to go to jail for it. It comes from men that cared enough for mankind to be shot or crucified for them. Remember, M.L. King, Rosa Parks, Gandhi and Jesus were all…

Like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, our 44th President has decided against all unwritten protocol, to ridicule and condemn our 45th President for his policies and actions. In the first four years of Obama’s term everything that was wrong in this country was George Bush’s fault, George sa…

A recent letter shows how various methods are employed to bring home a point against views we disagree with. The letter suggests Democrats are soldiers of Satan and that they are bent on imposing Communism in America. If that were true, we would be under communist rule. To emphasize, the let…

Before the modern era relieves us of the traditional meaning of yet another English word, let me question the understanding of “theory” put forth in a Sept. 10 letter. I don’t fault the citation from Scientific American that in proper science a theory is “substantiated through repeated exper…

We should look at the words quoted by John F. Kennedy: “Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future."

I think I have discovered something. While I am in Germany for three weeks, I am going to take a break from American news. I need to breathe for those three weeks and take long walks and contemplate the beauty of this life as God gives it to us.

Hats off to Bruce Tooker for his impressive and spot-on response to the inane hysterics spewed in a Viewpoints rant on Sept. 6. He said everything I was planning to say, and more. He was just a day quicker than I was.

A recent guest column by Tom Purcell causes me to write this letter to the editor. When I was teaching students of psychology in Ohio, a very important concept was identified with the phrase “correlation doesn’t equal causation.” Mr. Purcell’s column indicates that technology causes people t…

Two years ago, I purchased yard signs and found folks who would put them in their yards. About 75 percent of my signs were stolen or damaged. I spoke to a police officer who explained that police could not watch thousands of signs. He said, however, that sign theft is a crime and if proof li…

I was hoping that the Avon Park politics would become normal. Out of all the local governments in Highlands County, Avon Park always seems to be the most unusual. I know with our form of city manager government, the mayor has limited impact. I’ve been happy with the mayor and I hope he can t…

What is a righteous person? Is it one that hears all views and then relates all about the saving grace of Christ Jesus, for it is a catastrophe for anyone not to be saved. The fake news lies always lead straight to death and destruction and fills some men's desire for conflict and murder. Th…
