The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Sobriety Roadside Safety Checkpoints starting on June 1, 2020 through June 6, 2020, on State Route 136 in White County.

Impaired driving is a serious crime that kills more than 16,000 people and injures 305,000 others every year in the United States. Troopers will evaluate drivers for signs of alcohol or drug impairment. Troopers will target those who operate a vehicle while impaired and take corrective actions for other violations observed while ensuring the protection of all motorists.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol recognizes that sobriety checkpoints are highly visible and effective tools in the battle against impaired driving.

Language of Liberty – By Dr. Carol Swan

BOnce upon a time, every student of history – and that meant pretty much everyone with a high school education – knew this: The Democratic Party was the party of slavery and Jim Crow, and the Republican Party was the party of emancipation and racial integration.

Democrats were the Confederacy and Republicans were the Union. Jim Crow Democrats were dominant in the South and socially tolerant Republicans were dominant in the North.

But then, in the 1960s and 70s, everything supposedly flipped: suddenly the Republicans became the racists and the Democrats became the champions of civil rights.

Fabricated by left-leaning … CONTINUED

Micah made his bold and resolute proclamation at the dinner table stating, “Dad, I would like to ride my bike without training wheels tonight.”

Children often look forward to the next rite of passage; that moment that marks a transition from one stage of life to the next.  It could be getting to start kindergarten, putting on makeup for the first time, receiving a first cell phone, going on a first date, or taking that driver’s test.  The striking way my 5-year-old distinctly made his proclamation let me know this rite of passage needed my full attention, and it needed to happen soon.  Around the … CONTINUED

Playl’s Ponderings – By Steve Playl

Some children seem to be born with a good sense of direction. Our son, for example, could give directions from the church to our home – almost two miles away with lots of turns – when he was just a toddler. In fact, before he knew his right from his left, he could point which way to turn at every intersection. Our daughters were not quite as savvy as their little brother, but they eventually learned how to get places…especially with the introduction of GPS.

At 9 years old, James David is much better with directions than his mother, our daughter. Ask … CONTINUED

Thanks to a grant from the Tennessee Department of Human Services, the Sparta-White County Family YMCA will continue to offer free childcare services to an expanded list of frontline workers through mid-August.

“The qualification of a frontline worker is those deemed essential under Gov. Lee’s Executive Order No. 22,” Kyle Goff, CEO at the Sparta-White County Family YMCA said and added that recently more categories were added to the list of workers who could benefit from the program.  “These categories have also expanded to workers in the financial and religious fields, as well as food, utility, and hotel industries, and more.”

On Memorial Day, communities across the nation pause to remember, honor, and give thanks for the military men and women who gave their lives for the freedoms that Americans enjoy daily, and Sparta joined those communities on May 25 when they held a small memorial service in the Rotary Club Sparta Veterans Park, on Bockman Way.

After Sherry Hickey, president of the GFWC Sparta Woman’s Club, welcomed the small crowd and Walter Buttrum, American Legion Post #99 chaplain, offered a prayer of thanks, several of the area’s government officials took a moment to address those assembled to honor some of America’s, and more specifically the … CONTINUED
