Hwy. 109 dangers not just news, but real life to many
Hwy. 109 dangers not just news, but real life to many

Brian Harville's article last Friday, "Another one about Hwy. 109" stayed on my mind all weekend. Brian and I view the topic from different perspectives, his from a newsroom, mine from my home less than a mile from Highway 109, but we both realize the seriousness of the problem and the need to address the question he poses, "Why is so very little being done about it?"

Governor's Voucher Bill the Moral Choice
Governor's Voucher Bill the Moral Choice

Why should legislators consider voting for a law that will more than likely never affect their districts? The Governor's School Voucher bill will not affect 95 percent of all school districts in Tennessee - especially not Wilson County Schools. So why vote for the bill?

Hwy. 109 more dangerous than ever

I live in the small neighborhood behind the Martha Gallatin Recreation area. We are the first neighborhood in Wilson County after leaving Gallatin and crossing the Hwy. 109 bridge. After yet another fatal accident by the bridge, I did a little internet research and found The Wilson Post's article "Who's fighting to keep Hwy. 109 safe?" - dated November 5, 2014.

Lebanon needs to implement Notice of Site Plan ordinance immediately

Lebanon has a unique and proud heritage. Since the city's beginning in 1801 as an agricultural/livestock community, Lebanon is now the heart of Wilson County, the second fastest growing county in Tennessee.

Schools teaching, not indoctrinating, students on Islam
Schools teaching, not indoctrinating, students on Islam

Claims that the public schools in Tennessee are indoctrinating children by teaching too much of any religion are a logical fallacy at best. Webster defines indoctrination as, "to teach (someone) to fully accept the ideas, opinions, and beliefs of a particular group and to not consider other ideas, opinions, and beliefs."

Seniors should be worried about benefits

It seems that retirement benefits for hard-working Americans may soon become ancient history if the current trend continues. Although there are numerous "Hallmark Holidays" that acknowledge and celebrate seniors like Oct. 1, the International Day of Older Persons, or Grandparents Day in September, we seniors are seriously worried about companies ending the health benefits we worked a lifetime to earn.

LETTER- Expo Center will make WC Fair better

Now that the Wilson County Expo is a reality and not just a dream, I think about my mother. About 10 years ago, my mother, about 70 years young, made the comment, "Wilson County needs a coliseum at the fairgrounds." She was always a lady of insight. When we, as a family, worked at the Raleigh, N.C. State Fair, a 100-acre fair, a coliseum was packed each night with events and concerts. She met many famous people and attended all the events.

It's time to take down Gen. Hatton

The Civil War was about slavery. Yes, it was about States' rights - a state's right to allow slavery. We can be proud of so much of our heritage here in the South. But not slavery. Slavery was shameful.

Teacher of the Year

The 2015 Wilson County Teacher of the Year Banquet was again a learning experience for me. The first lesson I learned was how fortunate Wilson County is to have sponsors like Wilson County Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Hyundai and CedarStone Bank. These businesses like so many other businesses are willing to voluntarily contribute to good causes like this in our county.

Letter to the Editor

It's time for New Year's resolutions, particularly those about our health. Although gun violence remains the leading cause of death among young people, our most dangerous weapon is still our fork.
