    Farmland a precious commodity — J. David Miller

    Many of us have fond memories of Howevalley School. I attended the school from 1956-57 as a first grader and again in 1963-64 as a seventh and eighth grader. Bill Goodman was the principal and his stern looks sometimes were all that was needed to straighten up mischief. The whole community from Cecilia all the way to the Grayson County line would show up for fall festivals and ballgames. It was like a community social.

    Obama’s advisors

    My missive back in March suggested Attorney General Holder should step down from office.

    OUR VIEW: Plenty of good things happening

    In less than a year, Elizabethtown’s prescription pill take-back program has been an overwhelming success with around 185,000 pills turned in through late August.

    The program was launched in March.

    Police Chief Tracy Schiller said all drugs collected were prescription or over-the-counter medications.

  • Wondering about death and living well

    Watching a TV show tonight, one character has a terminal illness and is speaking with a friend, who doesn’t yet know whether or not she herself is equally ill.

    She asks her friend, “What is it like?”
