Some people will quote a small portion from Article 11 of the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli as proof that America was not founded on Christian principles. It says, "…the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion…." When you don’t read the full …

I agree with the writer (Andy Spears, State should rein-in payday lenders, April 28th) who suggested more can be done to protect consumers from those ever-present and always open payday loan stores.

A little over two years ago, I told the Sumner County School Board that Sumner County was "becoming a cesspool of corruption." Sadly, this election cycle has done nothing to change that assessment.

Our community continues to be excited about the progress being made in the effort to “Save the Batey Farm.”  People all over town are realizing the value of a passive park that is only three minutes from Main Street. 

The Bible says that in the beginning God created a perfect environment. There was no sin and therefore no suffering, violence, and death. The original creation was a beautiful place, full of joy. God created Adam and Eve in a perfect paradise.

We need to keep our children safe, no matter what. I think we can all agree on that.

Recently there has been a lot of attention on Nashville and the upcoming referendum on a transit system. What happens in Nashville will impact all of us in Middle Tennessee over the coming years and Sumner County citizens need to be aware of what is currently available to us.

I agree that Len Assante knows his guns, but he is exaggerating the gun related deaths in the USA by combining gun suicides with gun homicides which is typical anti-gunner rhetoric making it appear that gun violence (homicides) were 3 times more than they actually were……11,008 is the actual …

Raising taxes on hardworking families is wrong. As a person of faith, I believe scripture has a lot to say about the role government can play in the protection and development of people, especially poor and vulnerable people.

I find it very interesting that the Hendersonville Standard would write a story about Angie Hedberg taking up 25-percent of the front page plus more on page A12, that 78 Hendersonville residents signed a petition to remove Alderwomen Angie Hedberg from office.

The tradition of Thanksgiving as a time to focus on God and His blessings dates back almost four centuries in America, beginning with the Pilgrims who thanked God for their survival in the new world. Throughout the years it was common to observe days of thanksgiving.

For the past several weeks, news cycles have been inundated with NFL players "disrespecting" the American flag for taking in knee in silent protest to bring a voice to the social injustices plaguing our country. The public outrage has been prolific even causing the President to repeatedly we…
