To the Editor, First of all, my boyfriend, Jacob Bartlett, and myself are not anti-police and we do not support the defund the police movement. Secondly, I would not say Jacob was heavily intoxicated. We were grilling outside because we both had the day off and both had two or three mixed drinks. Jacob never resisted police after he was handcuffed... more
To the editor, Mr. Fanning's piece in the Opinion section of the paper is nothing but rhetoric. The Trump presidency will go down in history as a great presidency. The impeachment will go down as a partisan effort by Democrats to take out a duly elected president. There were so many fraudulent episodes with that impeachment it's hard to know where to start... more
To the editor, I am a mother of five children. Three are veterans. I am saluting all veterans even the "losers and suckers" who died while serving our country in the military. May God forever bless you for attempting to make our country safe. Thank You! That's what makes America Great and not to be belittled or use malicious, cutting words to smear or disrespect all you. Again, thank you. JUST SAYING!... more
To the editor: The COVID-19 crisis has affected most of us in some way or another. Non-profit organizations like United Way of Bedford County have been especially hard hit. Despite the uncertainty of the situation, which seems to change from day to day, United Way of Bedford County decided to hold its Shrimp Boil, rechristened “Mardi Gras In July “ the final weekend of the month... more
To the editor, The closer we get to the November 3 election we witness Trump getting more desperate. He has become more and more erratic and disparaging with his statements as he watches every poll showing he is behind Joe Biden. The latest book by Bob Woodard, supported by eighteen audio tapes over a period of time, has revealed an alarming fact about Trump... more
To the editor, I believe the First Amendment of the Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of people to assemble, and to petition the Government for redress of grievances.” That is not “hot air” Mr. Brown... more
To the editor, As a veteran serving in the U.S. Army in Korea and in the civil service as an embalmer with the U.S. Air Force in Saigon, Vietnam during the Vietnam War, I feel compelled to write this letter. During the Vietnam War 58,000 soldiers lost their lives, and thousands more lost their lives in other wars serving as U.S. Military Service men and women. They died fighting for the freedom every American citizen enjoys today... more
To the Editor, Now that the Democratic Party Convention and the Republican Party Convention has come and gone the campaigning will begin. Each Presidential candidate will be telling us his vision, and how they intend to lead and govern our great country. Each candidate has a very starkly different vision on where they will lead if elected as our commander-in- chief... more
To the editor, After four years the Deep state coup perpetrators still go unpunished. It is clear to me we have two justice systems: One for folks like you and me and one for Left-wing elites who seem to be above the law. Roger Stone is awaiting a 40 -month prison sentence while Andrew McCabe (FBI former director) enjoys life with cushy high-profile job with CNN commentator, creating outrage among conservatives who see a political double standard when it comes to prosecutions of false statements. ... more
To the editor, Seventy-five years ago last week, Aug. 14, 1945 was the end of World War II. My uncle (Otis A Fritz) was a corporal in the United States Army during WW II. He enlisted on July 8, 1941. Two years later he was captured by Nazi Germany and sent to Stalag 3B. The first report of his capture was Feb. 17, 1943 and the last report was July 13, 1945. Based on the two reports, Otis was imprisoned 877 days. Ultimately he was liberated and honorably discharged... more
To the editor, Recently our President Donald John Trump made a statement to the media that Joe Biden was against God. What authority does Mr. Trump have in making this kind of religious statement; is he a Theologian who makes the interpretation of which is written in the scriptures of the Bible? I ask you how can Trump make a statement about Biden relationship with God after all of things he has said and done against God’s teachings... more
To the editor, Ms. Adcock is throwing everything against the wall to see if any of it sticks.  Take a look at Donald Trump and you will see he does the same.  The Trumpers and Trump himself will never give a direct answer to anything, but they blame everyone else for the failed presidency of Trump... more
To the editor, I thought this COVID-19 pandemic would bring this country together. I was wrong. Instead of coming together, the radical liberal mob has chosen to destroy our country. Under the guise of “peaceful protest,” liberal extremists demolished and defaced 100-plus year old statues like George Washington and Ulysses Grant. ... more
To the editor, Bedford County Farm Bureau is proud to promote the “I Farm, I Vote”  initiative to encourage farmers and rural Tennesseans to get out and vote.  Agriculture is Tennessee’s number one employer and the lifeblood to rural communities in the state.  Rural votes matter, and the voices of our rural communities need to be heard in our state and national government.  The way to do that is to get out and vote. ... more
To the editor, Ms. Adcock claims she is being attacked by Ms. Bellenfant and me.  she should know that others have very different views from her, and the last time I looked we had freedom of speech. Of course, if Trump and his sycophants had their way, speech would only come from them.  It is their way or the highway... more
To the editor, To debate or not to debate? That is the question for Joe Biden. If he does not debate, how are voters to know what his future policies are for the country? Mainstream media is sheltering Biden from any questions. We are left to wonder if Biden is up for the job physically or mentally. Is this the reason his “handlers” are keeping him in the basement?... more
To the editor,     After reading your article I noticed several errors that I’m sure were not intentional but nonetheless were inaccurate and misleading.  Thank you for the opportunity to set the record straight for you and your readers.   First, the Celebration grounds serves as the location for the Sunday morning worship service.  We do not schedule or conduct the service. ... more
To the editor, Gov. Lee, 50th governor of the state of Tennessee, who ran a campaign based on the belief that he stated during his inaugural address as “government is not the answer to our greatest challenges” has placed Tennessee in stage lights much brighter than the Opry could have fancied on how lack of leadership is expressly not the answer to our greatest challenges... more
To the editor, Ruth Bellenfant should be relieved, because after the election and if Mr. Biden (who has dementia) wins, she won’t hear anything that disturbs her left-leaning tendencies. As it is now, Google, Facebook, and Twitter are censoring anything that doesn’t play to their agenda (that would be the Left’s socialist idea of heaven on earth)... more
To the editor,     I am disappointed. I am disappointed in the people of Shelbyville and Bedford County. When I moved here 30 years ago, one of the things that I loved about living here was how friendly the people were, and how they genuinely cared about each other. For the most part, I find this to still be true... more
