Reader Opinion: Respect the flag and anthem
Our greatly blessed country was founded on ideas recorded in such documents as the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, among others. Ideas of self-government that promote individual freedoms and responsibilities; that each citizen has the right to his...

Reader Opinion: Addressing the problem?
Racism has been and continues to be a problem for this nation. Although our black citizens have fought in every war since the beginnings of this nation and often died in disproportionate numbers, they inevitably return to a country that rewards them with unequal rights of citizenship....

Reader Opinion: Honor our flag, anthem

Reader Opinion: Honor our flag
On the back wall of my house, facing the road is a wooden replica of our American Flag. It was made for me by a dear neighbor, who by the way is a veteran and (Friday was) Veterans Day, so thank you Tim for your service and for the flag. But let's talk about this subject for a while....

Reader Opinion: Remember Independence Day
This Saturday is Independence Day. It is important to remember this day because freedom isn't free. One way to celebrate our freedom is to fly the American flag at your home. The flag is a symbol of our country and the freedom that we fought for many of times. Zach Lockwood, 14...
