Today's Opinions

  • Play ball! Little League was ‘family’ affair

    Last week I read an article in the paper about the man from Williamsport, Penn., who started  Little League. Teen-age boys who wanted to play baseball other than on the school teams had a league, but there was not one at that time for pre-teen youth. And note, I said boys; no girls played little league for decades to come.

  • Take time to thank a teacher who has made a difference

    Typically in my monthly column, I address legal issues or current topics in the legal field, but, with your indulgence, I am going to deviate slightly this month.

    In case you did not know, this is National Teacher Appreciation Week. It is a week when we are to give thanks to those who give so much.

  • There’s big efficiency in small things

    Nothing is more heartbreaking in homeownership than the high price of a large problem that started as a small, inexpensive problem. If you own a home, it is only a matter of time until you trace back a big mess to a failed part that cost $1.87.

    It plays out the same way with children.

  • First responders recognized during May

    They may wear a variety of uniforms and have different areas of expertise, but one quality binds all first responders: They’re the ones who immediately run toward an emergency when the first impulse is to run away.

    Their invaluable contributions have been highlighted in recent weeks in the aftermath of the Boston bombings, the ricin-poisoned letters in Washington, D.C., and Mississippi and the explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant.

  • Pharmacy thanks county for donation

  • Rotary offers guitar signed by George Jones

    Editor:

    The Carrollton Rotary Club is deeply saddened to learn of the death of legendary country singer George Jones. During his last visit to Carrollton, George was kind enough to sign a guitar for the Carrollton Rotary Club to raffle.

    Carrollon Rotary Club will be selling tickets for $10 each for this autographed guitar through Saturday, May 11, when we hold our annual pancake breakfast. All funds raised from the raffle will go toward the annual scholarships the Rotary club awards each year.
