I wish we could do away with political parties. Most of us want similar things. Many current politicians like to draw lines between us and make the “other” seem dangerous.
Some people will quote a small portion from Article 11 of the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli as proof that America was not founded on Christian principles. It says, "…the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion…." When you don’t read the full …
A little over two years ago, I told the Sumner County School Board that Sumner County was "becoming a cesspool of corruption." Sadly, this election cycle has done nothing to change that assessment.
After living in Virginia Beach for 35 years, I see that Nashville is desperately looking for the key to Pandora’s “Light Rail” Box. With any luck that key remains hidden and the tax paying citizens of Davidson and the surrounding counties aren’t stuck with the burden of trying to make it work.
In recent years modern historians and secular humanists have denied the fact that America was founded as a "Christian Nation." But America’s Christian roots run deep and wide.
The Bible says that in the beginning God created a perfect environment. There was no sin and therefore no suffering, violence, and death. The original creation was a beautiful place, full of joy. God created Adam and Eve in a perfect paradise.
We need to keep our children safe, no matter what. I think we can all agree on that. The front page article “Securing Our Schools, What Can Be Done?” listed all of the current practices in place to safeguard our children, all of which were being done at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as well.
As I listened to the horror of being inside a Florida high school with a maniac killing 17 people with an AR-15, I try to put myself in that situation and wonder how we can justify allowing anyone access to that weapon?
Wilson Bank & Trust, Gallatin High School Principal Ron Becker, Assistant Principal Johnnie Anderson, the coaching staff, Gallatin News, Josh Cross, Randy Moore, Phil Stauder, Zach Womble and all constituents: The Alumni of Union High School and the entire community would like to extend …
Please allow me to express my gratitude for the excellent coverage of the front-page story, Uniting Generations. As a lover of history, I have always tried to keep up with my school history, your school history and everybody else’s. Your superb story simply made my day.
In your Jan. 18 article on downtown crosswalk replacement, Public Works Director Zach Wilkinson acknowledged what many predicted when the crosswalks were installed - they weren't suitable for the location. He also commented on the cost of trying to maintain the inadequate pavers - just how m…
Moral values have been abandoned in the role they play in a civilized society and now we’re paying the price. Laws and police can never replace these restraints on personal conduct so as to produce a civilized society. At best, criminal justice and the police and are the last route of defens…
Recently there has been a lot of attention on Nashville and the upcoming referendum on a transit system. What happens in Nashville will impact all of us in Middle Tennessee over the coming years and Sumner County citizens need to be aware of what is currently available to us.
I agree that Len Assante knows his guns, but he is exaggerating the gun related deaths in the USA by combining gun suicides with gun homicides which is typical anti-gunner rhetoric making it appear that gun violence (homicides) were 3 times more than they actually were……11,008 is the actual …
When was Jesus Christ born? We can speculate but ultimately, we don’t know the date, or even the season with certainty. His birth date is nowhere recorded in the Bible.
The Hairy Moose in Gallatin saved my dog four hours south in Lawrenceville, Ga. Thank goodness for animal lovers, identification chips, and selfless people who go out of their way on holidays for no other reason than they are simply nice.

I learned that guns are now allowed at our capitol building where our senators and representatives work. I go with my mom sometimes and talk with my senator and representative.
Each year the Gallatin Police Department hosts "Shop with a Cop” to provide Christmas gifts for disadvantaged children. The fundraiser that supports this effort is the annual Santa Classic Golf Tournament at Long Hollow Golf Course. This year’s tournament was held Nov. 4 and raised $15,490.
The tradition of Thanksgiving as a time to focus on God and His blessings dates back almost four centuries in America, beginning with the Pilgrims who thanked God for their survival in the new world. Throughout the years it was common to observe days of thanksgiving.
On the eve of the GOP unveiling its tax plan, Rep. Diane Black during a CNBC interview this week called the GOP tax plan “a gift to America.” What “America” exactly is she referring to? An America that turns its sick citizens away from emergency rooms? An America that gives huge corporations…
