    Rather than amending the county-wide nuisance ordinance, fiscal court should repeal it.

    State laws address public health issues and littering. This nuisance ordinance addresses grass, weeds, trees, mobile homes, vehicles, including farm and marine, boats, etc. in the county’s rural areas.

  • Writer issues call to action for a change


    In the course of Human events it has been found that a once free people have become enslaved. Corporate institutions have become, with no equal, tyrants of a nation and its laws. Those rights, endowed by our creator, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, have fallen victim to the sin of greed.

  • Making suicide prevention a legislative priority

    Dear Editor,

    Every 28 seconds someone makes a suicide attempt.

    I experienced the loss of my 17-year-old daughter in August 2015.

    That is why, on June 9, I will be traveling to Washington, D.C. to meet with my Members of Congress and demand they make suicide prevention a top legislative priority.

    I will be asking my Senators and Representative to support:

    1. Increased funding for suicide prevention research within The National Institute of Mental Health to a level commensurate with the suicide crisis in our country.
