To the Editor, In these times that we are in, times of darkness and uncertainty, the church has not been called to be rebellious.  It is not time to raise our own personal flags.  Our governor, our president, says no gatherings of over ten people.  I know that many of God’s people are saying that the government doesn’t rule us God does.  As a minister I have seen that we don’t see scriptures clearly.  The Bible says to obey them that have rule over you.  I’ve also seen that the Christians that struggle with authority over them usually have a hard time obeying the Holy Spirit, forgiving, paying their debts, raising their children according to scripture, being kind to their neighbors, and also treating their bodies as a temple of the Holy Ghost.  So please don’t try at this moment to be a supernatural warrior just be a great example of King Jesus.  . ... more
To the Editor, I was a small child when America went through WWII. Today, I’m almost 82 and hearing news about the war we are facing now. TV has replaced radio, with Walter Winchell and Walter Cronkite. Where, once we listened, we now watch. We watch people we know, and those we don’t, dying before our eyes and hearts. Today the Corona virus is at war with the whole world... more
To the editor, I know it is going to be a challenge to my right-wing friends on what to do with the $2 trillion socialist program money coming to us. This is not the first socialist program money that we have received in the last two and half years. ... more
To the editor, I would like to respond to Adam Johnson's front-page editorial, claiming that the Covid-19 pandemic is overblown, and causing "a level of panic disproportionate to the threat the virus poses." It is so easy to sit in your comfy chair in a county that only has a couple of cases of the virus, and believe that everything is rosy. But Mr. Johnson is pushing dangerous attitudes and beliefs... more
To the editor, As each day passes the Coronavirus continues to increase by large numbers. The United States has surpassed all the others countries where the virus has been. The numbers of cases and deaths increase daily. The government has tried to curtail the virus by asking the citizens to use social distancing and by staying at home if they can. ... more
To the Editor: As a ICF/RN in Fayetteville, I'd like to ask our community and specifically our senators to cosponsor the Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (S. 2080). This bill is bi-partisan, has already passed the House, and helps seriously-ill patients manage their illnesses, avoid unnecessarily hospitalization, and retain their quality of life... more
To the Editor: I wanted to pass this advice along for anyone in a similar situation that I was in when deciding on care for my mother. My Mother had been with me at home until I was physically unable to continue to care for her and my family and I had to make the difficult decision to place her in the nursing home... more
To the Editor: For the past year, the board members of Circle of Friends, along with Hawkins and Price Contractors, have been diligently working to build a new Christian preschool in Shelbyville. Our new facility, on the corner of East Lane and Deery Streets, is within a week of opening... more
To the Editor: I recently traveled from Shelbyville to the statehouse in Nashville to represent cancer patients and survivors. I called on our state lawmakers to make reducing barriers to care for cancer patients in Tennessee a priority. I was honored to be joined by more than 100 of my fellow American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network volunteers from across the state... more
To the Editor: Across the country, everywhere you look, our religious freedoms are under attack from the radical left and their socialist agenda. In Tennessee, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit last November against the Smith County School System for a student-led prayer at a Veterans Day assembly and their "prayer and period of silence" in school... more
To the Editor: The recent episode of United States House Representative Nancy Peolsi dramatically grandstanding and grimacing while tearing up Presidents Trump's State of the Union speech is reminiscent of another hate-driven outburst in the Halls of Congress by a disgruntled South Carolina Democrat, Andrew Brooks. ... more
To the Editor: Now the trial of the impeachment of President Trump has come to an end. We must turn our attention to the U.S. Senate for holding a so-called trial without searching for the total truth. There were many differences in this trial. This trial did not have any witnesses. ... more
To the Editor: In the story headlined “Wartrace, resident spar over driveway” by Terence Corrigan (Times-Gazette, Saturday, Feb. 1), concerning the Dec. 19 Wartrace town hall meeting, the paper stated Eddie Carroll disagrees with the Town of Wartrace over who should pay for repairs to his driveway. This matter had not been discussed with us... more
To the Editor: We are approaching the final arguments and the vote on the articles of impeaching a first term president Donald J Trump. The country is waiting and watching the Senate. The Senate has already voted to have a trial without witnesses. The majority Senators voted on a partisan line. ... more
To the Editor: I am asking for community assistance from individuals and churches for Curtis Stacy. For many years Curtis ran the Community Closet at his home on Dover Street and helped many people in Bedford County with free clothes whenever needed. Due to his age and health he had to stop doing this service... more
To the Editor: The ongoing travesty the Congressional Democrats have instigated drags on with acquittal a given. However, in the interim the United States moves right along with the economy booming and if anything with the cheap theatrics put on by the House of Representatives, all they have done is displayed their ignorance of the Constitution in that President Trump has not committed a single violation of any of the true articles of impeachment as set forth in the Constitution in Article 3, Section 3, Clause 1. ... more
To the Editor: Bedford County Schools have joined with other school districts in saluting our local education leaders during Tennessee's annual School Board Appreciation Week -- January 27-31, 2020. The week is designed to recognize the contributions made by our school board members, who are given the tremendous responsibility of ensuring the education of Tennessee's youth... more
To the Editor: I am writing to thank Shelbyville residents for sharing the true meaning of Christmas with children in need this past holiday season. Because of the generosity of donors in Shelbyville and across the United States, Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan's Purse, collected more than 8.9 million shoebox gifts in 2019. Combined with those collected from partnering countries in 2019, the ministry is now sending 10,569,405 shoebox gifts to children worldwide... more
To the Editor: I'd like to echo the Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation's recent recognition of David Womack Sr. of Shelbyville for his leadership and dedication to agriculture in Bedford County and beyond. In addition to advocating for traditional agriculture, David is a founder of the U.S. biodiesel industry... more
To the Editor: The last two years has been puzzling for many Christians knowing the religious right have supported President Trump. The actions of President Trump certainly have not been consistent with the teaching of the Bible. As I was drinking my coffee this morning reading the paper and listening to the news on TV. ... more
