Inspirations

Choose this day whom ye will serve… But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15   Many years ago Joshua spoke these words to the Israelites when they had strayed away from God and were serving idols. Where are we today? Will we allow things and busyness to be […]

True Satire

Dear Chris, Regarding your statement a few weeks ago about hoping nobody tries to burn down the restaurant, rest assured that you may call me for the bucket brigade if they do. As to your frequent correspondent who fancies himself a satirist, let me assure you most people are NOT too intellectually challenged to recognize […]

Now It’s Time to Focus on Growing the Economy

Now It’s Time to Focus on Growing the Economy

By Lee H. Hamilton Recent economic news has been broadly reassuring. Retail sales are strong, November saw the best job gains in three years, the federal deficit is shrinking, the stock market is robust, and the Fed is expressing enough faith in the economy that an interest rate bump next year is considered a certainty. […]

Pulling the Princes From Their Thrones

Well, folks, I missed the actual Christmas deadline for this contribution, but I still want to share something found on one of my favorite websites, crooksandliars.com.  As you might imagine, they go hard after the underbelly of public life.  The first four paragraphs are copied verbatim as allowed, and in italics; the following paragraphs represent […]

Utility Rates

I am writing in response to the recent articles in the Memphis Democrat regarding Liberty Utilities natural gas rate increases.  A few weeks ago we read about an 11% rate increase, effective December 1, 2014.  Doesn’t sound that bad, does it?  What Liberty wants its natural gas users to forget is that exactly twelve months […]

Tough Old ‘Birds of a Feather’ Letter

Dear Chris: Dave here.  You know, the Bible Grove Nature Activist, just writing to say that I’m sorry I may have caused you to have indigestion, complicated with anxiety attacks, which you described in your “What If” column. I actually thought my little expose was fairly easy to understand.  I didn’t think it would have […]

Chamber of Commerce

Dear Editor, This letter is directed primarily to the Memphis Chamber of Commerce.  I have just come from the Merchant’s Open Houses and enjoyed them very much, as I do every year.  I was talking with several people and merchants and wondered why this is customarily held on a Sunday.  None of these businesses are […]

Neighbors

Howdy Neighbor Dave, Call me vain, but I believe you may be satirizing the updates I sometimes write for Dancing Rabbit. Perhaps I ought to feel flattered. I hope you have as much fun as I do, because it’s one of my favorite community tasks. I do this voluntarily, and I’m pretty sure you do […]

Prop KIDS

Dear Mr. Editor: I cannot say that I am not disappointed in the outcome of Proposition KIDS, however I realize that the business of providing our students a good education must move forward regardless of the educational setting. The people spoke when the proposition was voted down so now the board and administration will make […]
