Today's Opinions

  • Has your summer officially started yet?

    When does summer start?

    That question has a different answer for different people.

    Around these parts, the season for beach towns begins on Memorial Day.

    For the kids, it must still be considered the first day after the last day of school.

    Traditionalists probably waited until today, June 21.

    For me, there are two determining factors that go into deciding if summer has arrived.

  • Brunswick Christian Recovery Center poised to serve more

    By Rocky Atkinson

    Guest Columnist

    For about five years, Brunswick Christian Recovery Center’s ministry has done a great job ministering to a fixed number of men with a program that works exceptionally well. Our growth has been limited for many reasons, but in the last two years all that has changed.

    BCRC has come to realize that God wants us to do more. The need is great and we feel called to double the size of all that we do and to also build a women’s ministry.

  • Federal act punishes coastal states

    To the editor:

    Regarding the Enhancing State Management of Federal Lands and Waters Act, the name of this act should be the “Holding Coastal States Hostage Act” or “Unfair Coastal States Penalties Act.”

  • Thanks for making Rockin’ Democracy successful

    To the editor:

    The Rockin’ Democracy in Brunswick County event was a first of its kind. Kudos to the steering committee that had the vision and leadership for this special event showcasing citizenship, democracy, volunteerism and engagement with the community.

  • Cruelty is not Christian or American value

    To the editor:

    It confounds me how so many Christians can be so adamantly single-minded about an unborn child, yet remain callous and dismissive toward those children here with us.

    Horrible things are being done these days toward children. This is a documented fact and an abomination. It is a stain on our entire country — those perpetrating the chaos and those of us who look the other way. Children and parents alike are being traumatized, but it is the children whose lives will be forever impacted.

  • Prevent voter suppression in our state

    To the editor:

    The Supreme Court ruling in favor of Ohio’s right to purge voter registration rolls of non-voters is just another way to suppress the vote.

    Our right and responsibility in participating in our democratic republic includes voting. Above all, we must vote, register and help others get to the polls, educate all about local issues and candidates and volunteer and support our civil liberties.

  • Rehabilitated people deserve second chances

    To the editor:

    Humans aren’t perfect by any means, which means we will make mistakes. When mistakes are made, usually there are expected consequences, but how long does it take for the mistake to be forgiven?

    Breaking the law isn’t acceptable and the individual should be held accountable, but does it mean the individual will never change? The answer could be yes or no because ultimately it’s up to the individual whether they are going to change.
