  • Election campaigns in full swing, time to register to vote

    In most years, September is the month when the election season starts to warm up as the weather begins to cool. That makes it a good time to reflect on our civic duties as citizens.

  • A bittersweet story of lost & found

    Editor’s Note: Linda Webster approached me two weeks ago inquiring of my interest in a news tip. She completed this story on Friday, Aug. 31. On the following day, Linda and her sister, Thelma Tingle Gray, were fatally injured in a traffic accident in Henderson County, Tenn. We extend our deepest condolences to the family.
