A nation of many faiths

  For many Christians there exists a prevailing mythology that America was established as a Christian nation. They envision the founders sitting around trying to put the language of Scripture into the framework of the Constitution. But the myth, while powerful and certainly durable in the imaginations of many believers, is just that—imaginary.    Were […]

As we were all feverishly typing the Dear Santa letters for the Santa Letter’s section that was published this past Friday, our circulation manager received a telephone call from the postmaster here in New Albany.

Santas, gifts, newspapers

Yes, ‘tis the uniquely American season for mistletoe and holly, tinsel and toys, Santas and sleighs, carols and crèches, good cheer and anachronistic poetic contractions. ‘Twas a time when Christmas in America was a less hectic season. Why, the Puritans even banned its celebration. But the Dutch brought their bearded Sancte Claus or Sinterclaas to […]

Give a goat as a gift

With the proliferation of catalogs being sent and delivered this Christmas season, the tendency is to immediately throw them in the trash, unless, of course the lady of the house gets to them first. Most of these catalogs look very much alike and offer discounts and specials for most every type of merchandise imaginable. This […]

More on the road theory

 And then there’s that old saying, “You win some and you lose some,” which applies to getting information from folks about stuff that other people don’t want you to know. However, in the case of my information source who told me the Blue Springs highway project was the result of a promise our governor made […]

It’s not too early to announce

It is not too early for those who would throw their hats into the ring and run for a New Albany municipal public office to announce their intentions to do so. There’s no real advantage to announcing as filing time gets nearer, that’s just a touch of drama that really surprises no one. Those who […]

Past promises returning to bite us, you know where

To add to my column of last Friday about the building of a road to where existing roads already go, I have to share information from a phone call I received from a friend in this regard. This person may or may not know the real story, but the information is so illogical and ridiculous, […]

State education “experts” create “Scrooge” attitude

Here I am, trying to get into the Christmas spirit and along comes another issue that will surely bring out the Ebenezer Scrooge in me. As those who know me already understand, there are few things about which I do not have an opinion, but with some subjects, I have been known to have stronger […]
