Word for the Week

Despite apparent good economic times, there is a lot of anxiety in the hearts of young men and women. Baby-boomers had parents who sacrificed to give them a better life. Generation Xers now see their parents let the good times roll. They consume with a vengeance. The Xers may not have the same financial or family security.
Easy divorce and abortion on demand heighten tensions. Parents split and go their own way.

Christmas decorating makes me a Grinch

While there are many, many reasons most of my family considers me weird, there is one that is common ground for all of them — Christmas.
I’m considered the Grinch, mostly due to my perceived lack of enthusiasm regarding the most joyous of holidays. My attitude towards decorating, shopping and gatherings is shameful, bordering on disgrace. If you consult my sisters or my Mama.

They love, love, love all the lights and colors and often beg me to stop in the middle of the road so their little eyes can linger for just a bit longer.

Reader offers conerns of solar farm trend

Dear editor,
I am writing to you as a concerned citizen, a passionate agriculturalist, and an avid outdoorsman. My fellow citizens should be aware of a growing trend affecting our county and towns, the land we all call home. Solar farms are a new way for landowners to invest in their property. A landowner leases (signs) a 15-year contract that allows them to make much more per acre than they would renting to a farmer or investing in timber.

Sharp Start For Southern Nash

BUNN -- Southern Nash’s best start in recent boys basketball memory included a victory last Tuesday night against a backyard rival and long-time nemesis -- the Bunn Wildcats.
Despite the wealth of newcomers, reloading BHS was still able to take a solid Southern Nash squad to the limit.
But Bunn couldn’t hold on to a 13-point cushion heading into the fourth quarter, and Southern was able to rally for a 48-44 victory in the grudge matchup at the Bunn Dome.
