    Methadone clinic would be a disgrace

    I am writing to voice my extreme displeasure with the pending addition of a methadone clinic to our fair community. It is a disgrace for our town to be polluted by this “legal” poison. The concept of methadone is absurd. Instead of addressing an individual’s addiction issues by making them face their emotions and work on healing, “doctors” administer “replacement therapy drugs”.

    Cross communication

    On Sunday morning, Sept. 20, my pickup was stolen from my driveway just outside of White Mills.

  • Oct. 20 editorial: Small business is big business

    Did you know small businesses ...

    ... Represent 99.7 percent of all employer firms in the U.S.?

     … Employ more than half of private sector employees?

     … Pay 44 percent of total U.S. private payroll?

     … Have generated 64 percent of net new jobs over the past 15 years?

    A small business is classified by the Small Business Administration as a firm with fewer than 500 employees. But clearly, just because a business is classified as “small” does not mean it has to think small.

  • Oct. 30 editorial: Staying safe on Halloween

    At times the world around us is too scary and consumes much of our lives. Fears of contracting an illness lurks in the shadows of unwashed hands and uncovered sneezes. Haunting stock market reports leave little feeling of financial security and the ghosts of financial decisions, corporate and personal, disrupt our days and our sleep.

    All the more reason to follow the example set by children to lighten up for one night, to enjoy a safe, scary and fun Halloween as a temporary diversion from the frightful world around us.

    On classification

    Mr. Mayor, the State Highway people called. They said the $64,000 sign at the entrance to the Field of Dreams will be too close to St. John Road once it’s widened.

  • Oct. 23 Editorial: Cundiff motivated by family tragedy

    There are some things in life that last forever.

    For Hope Cundiff, the love for her late granddaughter is still evident today.

    The death of Madison Ann "Madi' Cundiff, a little more than five years ago, today serves as motivation in her cause of continuing to bring child abuse awareness to light.

    At 22 months of age, the child was injured at the hands of an adult and died from head trauma brought on by what a coroner described as shaken impact syndrome.
