Guest Editorial: Support Local – Especially When It Comes To News

In September, the Union Times announced it was closing its doors after 170 years, citing the economic effects of COVID-19. It’s a sad thing when newspapers like the Union Times close, but it’s no longer shocking. Newspapers have been plagued by declining circulation numbers and shrinking newsrooms for the past 15 years, and nearly a […]

Letter: Chamber Supports 1¢ Tax

Our great citizens of Fairfield County received another flyer in support of the sales tax increase into our homes. Both flyers failed to state the contents of the referendum itself, why? The referendum states IN THE EVENT SUCH SALES AND USE TAX IS INADEQUADE, SUCH BONDS SHALL BE PAYABLE FROM A SUFFICIENT AD VALOREM TAX […]

Letter: Keep Joe Wilson & the military

I have known Congressman Joe Wilson for more than twenty years. Joe is a proven leader for the Second Congressional District. He has a keen understanding and passion for military personnel and their families having served in the military and currently serving on the U.S. House Armed Services Committee. In a state that is home […]

Letter: A Brighter Future

Much has been said about the proposed penny sales tax. As Chairman of the Fairfield Water and Sewer Authority I feel obligated to weigh in on this important issue.

He is a member of the liberal Democratic Party that is working to destroy American values across the nation. You may not […]

Guest Editorial: Don’t let Cedar Creek/Center Creek folks shut Fairfield down

Some citizens who live along Cedar Creek and in the Center Creek neighborhood are using fear-mongering and misinformation to try to trick Fairfield voters into defeating the three county council incumbents who have helped bring in 5 new industries, 800 jobs, almost $100 million investment in the county and the lowest unemployment rate in 20 […]

Letter: A “NO” Holds County Back

I ran for this District 7 council seat two years ago to work toward making Fairfield County a more productive place for our citizens – good paying jobs, nice affordable homes and good places to eat and shop. We have come a long way with 700 new jobs, $70+ million investment in our county and […]

Letter: Re-elect Bertha Goins

When we go to vote in District 4, let’s vote with our minds, not with our neighbors in our ear. In Fairfield, we have elected some of the worst choices possible in past administrations including a registered sex offender. The end result of electing the wrong person is simple. We the citizens get absolutely no […]

Letter: Where’s Our Rep?

After researching the penny sales tax wastewater treatment upgrade and speaking to members of the Fairfield County Council and community, I have a couple of questions about our current State House Rep.  1.) How does our District 41 State House Rep. not know what’s going on in the county she supposedly lives in? 2.) Why […]
