  • You Might Be a Terrorist

    Chris McDaniel, Courier Publisher|Oct 13, 2021

    Speak your mind and be heard. But, do it politely - lest the feds label you as a "domestic terrorist." To whom am I speaking? Why any parent who attends a school board meeting in these United States and is against mandatory masking or COVID-19 vaccinations. To be clear, I am not referring to the local school boards in Valley County. I have attended several Glasgow School District board meetings, and they have welcomed public discourse about masking and other COVID-19 related concerns. Late in th... Full story

  • OP-ED: Help Wanted - The Labor Shoe is on the Other Foot

    THOMAS L. KNAPP|Oct 13, 2021

    "I’m a small business owner," someone identified as "Andy" writes to syndicated advice columnists J.T. and Dale, "and I can’t believe how many people just don’t want to work anymore. ... my business is suffering, because I can’t get employees." My social media feeds are full of photographs — who knows if they're real or not? I haven't seen any in my town, but friends say they've seen them elsewhere — of signs at businesses apologizing for being "short-staffed," with "people just don't want to work" complaints appended. The country seems adrif... Full story

  • OP-ED: How to Slash Americans' Electricity Bills

    DR. WAYNE WINEGARDEN|Oct 13, 2021

    Whenever you hear about America's electricity system these days, it's usually some big problem that has captured the public's attention. There are examples of energy companies operating inefficiently, such as ratepayers having to foot the bill for massive cost overruns at the Vogtle nuclear power plant in Georgia. Sometimes, as was the case in South Carolina, customers wind up paying higher rates to cover the costs of building generation resources that are never completed and generate no electricity. And we have seen outright corruption, such... Full story

  • OP-ED: What "everyday low prices" can teach us about health care

    SALLY C. PIPES|Oct 13, 2021

    "Everyday low prices" are coming to health care. Walmart recently launched its own analog insulin, a synthetic form of the hormone that's genetically modified to be released rapidly or slowly, depending on a person's needs. It will be manufactured by pharmaceutical giant Novo Nordisk — but cost 75% less than brand-name analog insulin. The deal stands out as proof that markets can deliver outcomes that work for producers and consumers alike — if we let them. Generally speaking, the "market" for medicines is dysfunctional. It bears little res... Full story

  • OP-ED: Abortion at a Crossroads

    Bob Brown|Oct 13, 2021

    Pregnancies and human life are older than recorded time, and so, it follows, are abortions. The procedures by which abortions have been conducted, however, have only very recently in human history been recognized in law and made safe by regulations. In 1973, the Roe v Wade decision declared abortion a constitutional right within certain health related restrictions, and all states have been bound to safely implement that decision for nearly half a century. In Montana, however, the legalization of abortion became an issue two years before the... Full story
