Veterans we want to thank you for the time you did spend;
These brave veterans with tremendous valor and for us all they did defend. more

To The Editor: We used to hear people argue, “What people do behind closed doors is no business of mine.” But what they didn’t realize is that what was “in the closet” then would one day come into the classroom! …

To The Editor: I would like to commend the lifestyles director of Garden Plaza at Cleveland, Rachel Brannen, for an outreach program she began. more
To The Editor: Regarding gun deaths, your two guest editorials in the April 11 edition tell only one side of the story and leave much out. The commentary by Gary Riggins uses the tired … more
To The Editor: The Roman Empire was great in power and culture but opened itself to perversion. We have opened the door as Roman by not standing up for truth. There is a new moral code, call it being compliant. more
To The Editor: Recently, it was announced that a company called SK Food Group would be constructing a facility in Cleveland that is expected to employ 840 people. However, multiple media outlets … more
To The Editor: Why are you not identifying the male participant in the recent not-so-private tryst in the parking lot at the Dollar General Store?  more
To The Editor: I understand that the U.S. has always subsidized fuel prices. In Europe they are not subsidized; however, they have adequate public transportation. My question is: Why have the diesel prices remained as high as they have? Is this to "cause" a food shortage and a goods shortage? more
To The Editor: Concerning the front page article "BCSO employee under investigation," in the Thursday, Feb. 16, edition, I have to say that I believe that publishing this piece front and center in the paper, with multiple photos, was in extremely poor taste. more
To The Editor: The World Economic Forum (WEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are pairing up to make global health rules for all of us on this planet, in all countries. They are not asking for our input or our approval. These rules will be mandatory for everyone, except the elite and the people making the rules. These rules will override our United States Constitution and we will be victims and slaves to their recommendations. more

To The Editor: I would like to voice my support for the Transportation Modernization Act of 2023. We have a serious problem statewide that we have let get out of control for far too long. I would like to explain the magnitude of this problem and why I believe this legislation is direly needed. more
To The Editor: I am writing to thank Cleveland-area residents for sharing the true meaning of Christmas with children in need this past holiday season. more
I think it is important not to lose sight of the significance of what transpired on the TVA generation and transmission system. more
As I type this letter in Cleveland on Dec. 22, the forecast is calling for a low temperature of about 7 degrees F on Friday morning. By the time you see this on Dec. 31, we should be back to much more comfortable temps and a very decent end-of-year weather forecast. Historically, Cleveland has nearly the lowest average annual snowfall of any city in Tennessee: about 1.5 inches. So it is easy to take that for granted. more
Gov. Bill Lee aims to improve Revolutionary War and American history teaching for Tennessee students. I agree.  more
As 2022 rapidly draws to a close and we enter the holiday season, many of us begin to think about gratitude — who and what we are grateful for. more
Earlier this week my friend and I made a visit to check up on a friend in Bradley County that wasn’t answering her phone. When we got there, we saw that there were items on the porch which had been delivered two weeks before. So a call was made to 911 for a wellness check. more
