Domestic violence, paired with access to a gun, creates a deadly combination. Nearly 1 million women in the United States have been shot or shot at by an intimate partner, and more than half of the women murdered with guns in our country are killed by an intimate partner or family member. 

In a story making national news right now, a Manchester, Tenn., teen died by gun suicide last month after being “outed” online. While most of the media coverage has focused on the role of cyberbullying in the death, no one is talking about how he accessed the gun he used to end his life.

The 2019 Taste of Hendersonville recently showcased over 100 businesses from the Hendersonville area at the Streets of Indian Lake. Thousands of attendees purchased an admission allowing access to taste food from every booth and even vote for their favorite. Live entertainment, kid’s zone, a…

After I read Tena Lee's front page article in the Sept. 19 issue of the Gallatin News about the coming court hearing regarding condemnation of property needed for the proposed sewer line for the Liberty Creek School complex, I was convinced that more research should have been done to seek an…

I am shocked and stunned by the complete removal of the wildlife habitat on my property that was committed by Hendersonville Public Works contractors this week.

Whenever something bad happens such as gun violence, the cry goes out for the government to do something.  The truth is people always look in all the wrong places for answers. Many people will say it's "the system."

I don't know where to start when you talk about Mr. (Merrol) Hyde. Those who really know me will tell you I'm not a big fan of Beech High School. When Beech first opened in 1980 there wasn't but a handful of Black students or Black athletes from that area.

The news media seems to always report racial division amongst the American people. It appears to be instigated by anti-America groups whose agenda is to tear apart this nation.

The Hendersonville Area Chamber of Commerce wants to thank everyone who attended the 16th annual Freedom Fest on July 3. Presented by Re/Max Choice Properties, this event is an area favorite with fireworks sponsored by the City of Hendersonville Parks Department. 

With our current recycling plan, the residences of Hendersonville are forced to drive over 20 minutes to the nearest recycling drive in Gallatin - if dedicated enough to make the commitment.

When a lie is repeated over and over, many simply begin believing it - for instance, the alleged "wall of separation between church and state."

In 2013, I hired Mr. Allman to represent me in legal action against my former employer. For the next four years, he led me to believe that my suit was filed and pending. He gave me lies, excuses and bogus follow-ups.

I'm shocked that vote-suppressing legislature has advanced in our state government. This is a clear violation of basic voting rights in our state and an attempt to suppress the vote in favor of a particular political party.

Mr. Allman and his attorneys continue to attempt to cherry pick the facts to fit into his skewed version of reality. As Mr. Allman's largest victim, I can tell you there is no innocence in this story. Three years later he has not returned one cent of the $230,000 he took from my family. 

I greatly appreciate the coverage that the Hendersonville Standard has given to the story of Mr. Andy Allman and the fact that both sides have been represented.  It is the responsibility of the news to do just that.  

Tuesday, April 2, I attended the meeting of the City of Hendersonville Planning Commission.  I have been a public servant myself, having worked at the United States Mission to the United Nations in the Protocol and Public Affairs offices, the State of Tennessee for DHS Child Protective Servi…

In the April 4 edition, Whitney Conviser's letter was titled "Does the minority rule?" The answer is an obvious yes.

When a small group of people don’t like something like the Ten Commandments on government property, they have a rally against it by saying it goes against their beliefs.
