Our Views: Breaking our leadfoot habit

Guest column: A family’s sudden loss is felt hard

My name is Ken Yarbrough. I'm writing this week because my father, the wordsmith whom you've come to expect in this space, is taking a sabbatical.

You see, his oldest grandson died recently, and as you might expect, he's taking it hard. Please forgive me for presuming that I can capably fill in for him, which I can't. What I can do, though, is attempt to offer a eulogy to Zack, which my father may never be able to do.

Your Views: Governor can spend on planes but not veterans

I find it rather upsetting that the governor flew in to Gainesville and made a comment on how local governments are wasting money, yet no comment was made by local government officials. I thought that we were doing a pretty good job.

Yet, the state is crying about shortfalls. It can find $600,000 to get a hanger at Charlie Brown Airport, but can't find enough to keep the War Veterans home open. We now know that the governor rates his flying above the veterans in this state.

Thomas: McCain’s brilliant choice reflects our values

See, I told you that John McCain could be trusted to make good decisions for the country. If Sarah Palin is any kind of indication as to the kind of people with whom he would surround himself as president, I can't wait to see his first Supreme Court nominee.
