Today's Opinions

  • Let’s talk turkey

    So this sequestration, a part of the fiscal cliff, only affects the “entitlement programs”, it doesn’t affect the programs that support seniors, like transportation, home delivered meals, senior centers and protection from abuse!?  Right?

  • No better place to be

    Just a month left until Christmas and senior year is flying by!
    It seems like just the other day was the last first day of high school and now we’re almost halfway through. With the holidays being here, it’s a great time to be thankful for all of the years and wonderful memories that Williamstown High School has given us. There is genuinely no better place to go to school.

  • What a waste!

    The other day, I was grocery shopping.  Nothing new, something we all do.  But then, as I was perusing the pet aisle, I looked up to see a package of hotdogs lying toward the back of the shelf.  Not pet food hot dogs, people food hot dogs.  I picked them up and took them to the nearest store employee.  She thanked me and took the package.

  • One voice, one word

    A once euphoric young boy stands in solitude, feeling inferior to those who ridicule him persistently. He yearns for someone, somewhere, to be his friend and to understand the sorrow he’s undergoing.

    He is the boy with the solemn look on his face that many people continue to taunt carelessly. His fears consume him. They are the parasite, and he is their prey.

    He might just be the boy sitting in front of you in your math class; he may be the boy isolated at lunch. He is one of the many victims of bullying found everywhere today.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS

    Arsonists must have
    not been thinking

    To the person or persons unknown:
    What was in your mind the night you torched the 90-year-old building in Grant County Park?

  • This reader is tired of all the inaccuracies

    After reading the “Guest Column” by Chuck Estridge that sounded like every television political commercial, I had to respond to the falsehoods and inaccuracies that the column contained.

  • What do the new state test scores really mean?

  • Choose city council members wisely

    Choose city council members wisely
    “Two public meetings, two votes, two different outcomes.” “ I was against the project but now I am for it.” “I said then, it’s not my first choice for our city but where it’s located on the west side of 75, the impact would be extremely small to the city. If it was on the east side of 75, I wouldn’t be for this.”
    These statements were from elected officials that voted in favor of “A” truck stop.
