  • Letter to the Editor

    May 16, 2024

    The recent school board meeting raises major red flags for our county. As a county commissioner and someone who has been apart of school board and city council meetings, I have never seen any of these bodies of government post 4-5 signs during a public meeting that essentially read if you speak out or cause a disruption we can charge you with a misdemeanor. At the county level and from my involvement with the city council as well, we are always welcome to public opinion and citizen concerns. I feel as a citizen and elected official it is a...

  • Letter to the Editor

    May 16, 2024

    We’re becoming a nation of soothsayers, crystal ball gazers, and now independant paparazzi wannabees. Each one believes their story is the equalizer for a life well lived. The “white noise” has “verbal soot” saturated in it. When did “protest” become the “Be All” of Action? The “right to petiton” our government means a “formally drawn-up request, addressed to a person or body of persons in authority”, not mobs of people boisterously “camped-out”in our streets. This manner of hollering for “action in the moment” sounds precariously equ...

  • Life as Art

    Elissa Tracy|May 16, 2024

    Riding the Canvas: The Artistry of Motorcycle Gas Tank Art Motorcycle culture has long been intertwined with a spirit of rebellion, freedom, and individuality. One canvas that embodies this mindset is the gas tank — a blank slate awaiting the stroke of an artist’s brush. From the origins of this unique art form to its continuing popularity and the deeply personal connections it fosters, gas tank art has become an integral part of the motorcycle community. The origins of gas tank art can be traced back to the customization culture of the mid...

  • Tyrades! Is "value" a dirty word?

    Danny Tyree|May 16, 2024

    As I sit here admiring my 88-cent container of mustard, I can’t help feeling self-conscious. I know that restaurants advertise their “value menus” and retailers offer no-frills knockoffs of their glitziest products, but I keep picturing the corporate CEOs loathing such concessions as a necessary evil to appease the (ugh!) cheapskate rabble. (“I thought all the franchise owners got the memo to partner with Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and upsell customers the Eternally Happy Meal!”)...
