The downfall of written communication

Written communication has its challenges. Trying to find the right words to convey exactly what is meant without the benefit of tone of voice or body language can be difficult. Misunderstandings are easy to come by. Anyone who has ended up with someone angry at them due to a misconstrued text can attest to that.

Thoughtful Performance

As usual, people can’t stop talking about the Super Bowl. But this year it isn’t a fantastic play, a standout commercial or the volume of air in the footballs that has people talking. This year’s controversy seems to be more about the lack of obvious controversy. The biggest debate seems to be whether Lady Gaga

Information Sought

Dear Editor, Two large black and brown German Shepherds have been allowed to run loose across Sanita Village Road, Paradise Valley and Carpenter’s Trailer Park, and are responsible for the deaths of one small black Shitzu and two cats. Yesterday afternoon those same dogs were on my property and mauled my Siamese cat, witnessed by

Church Politics

Dear Editor, In the August 17 issue of Grainger Today, I wrote about natural-born citizens of the U.S. I pointed out that Barack Hussein Obama, whose Muslim father came from Kenya, was ineligible to serve as president of the U.S., if the founders intent had been upheld.

Immediate Action

Enough of “political correctness.” Our life, our country, is on the line. Our elected officials better quickly realize we’re at war with radical

Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: Pre-1880 Records

Dear Editor, The story of the history of the Nance House (Grainger Today, Jan. 18, 2017) was well researched and extremely interesting. But the statement that most of Grainger County’s paper records dated prior to 1880 were lost in a flooding event in the courthouse’s vault is not correct. In addition to hundreds of volumes

Letter to the Editor: Qualified

Dear Editor, I can not figure out how or why our Liberal friends claim Mr. Trump is not qualified to be president? He’s a very successful businessman, has a good family, and no drug or criminal records. Yet they shout, cry, march, boycott and complain that Mr. Trump is illegitimate and not qualified to be

Letter to the Editor: Wonderful Article

Dear Editor, What a wonderful article this is (“Vietnam vet receives an unforgettable birthday gift,” Jan. 4). My husband is a dear friend of these two beautiful people and also a Vietnam vet. He served in the Navy on LST 1141, up and down the coast and on river patrol boats in the middle of

Superintendent of Road Jim Renfro and his employees for helping the city with taking down the Christmas lights this year. Thank you. Mayor Fred “Speck” Sykes Rutledge Share
