Silence of the lamb, muzzles, and straitjackets

Posted by | April 13, 2020 1:29 pm

By Steve Qualls – Christpoint Church

If you want to silence something, you have to either kill it or make it disappear. Now, when we do silence something and it doesn’t remain silenced, then we will enforce harsher penalties. If dogs keep barking, owners have been known to muzzle them or buy a bark collar. If a voice speaks against the political flow, the powers that be tend to destroy their image and defame their name in order to silence their message. But what about the times when God was silent? What could man possibly do that would cause a silencing of God in our lives?


The desire to return to “normal” is understandable

Democratic Dialog – By Debra Wines

While in the middle of any crisis or tragedy, it is common for people to wish for a return to what they consider a normal life.  Sadly, that never happens, because whatever the event that turned someone’s life upside down, it is impossible to “return” to the way things had been.  As human beings, we fanaticize and romanticize our lives before a life-changing event took place.  We want to believe that our lives were perfect, and we desperately want that sense of security and, yes, normalcy.  Sometimes, that is the easiest way for us to cope with an event that changed our … CONTINUED

Listening to developing wisdom during the crisis

The Right Stuff – By Donald Holman

As this plague has developed, I remain somewhat mystified. I am still struggling to understand exactly why we needed to close down our $22 trillion economy and all stay home for weeks at a time. I worry that just when our country was excelling and our economy was surpassing anything else on the planet, we braked to a halt over some poorly understood and potentially deadly virus. I look at the Chinese where this virus is thought to have started, and I wonder what they had to do with this problem. We all know of their ambition to become the number … CONTINUED

By Rachel Auberger

Jon and Danielle Powers have been a part of the Upper Cumberland community for almost two decades, and, while not natives, Sparta is every bit home to them as if they had been born here.

The Powers, owners of four Domino’s Pizza franchise locations: Sparta, Cookeville, Smithville, and Manchester, have felt the loss of recent events with their neighbors and are understanding of the fears and needs of their communities.

“We have been very lucky to have started our first Domino’s in Sparta, in 2002,” Jon Powers said. “By expanding the business to other locations, it has given us more resources to be able to … CONTINUED

Federal and state government providing relief for unemployed

Posted by | April 13, 2020 1:22 pm

By Rachel Auberger

Unemployment is a hot topic across the country, and White County is no different with the recently released numbers from February 2020 showing a slight rise in what had been a historic all-time low for the state.

According to the Tennessee Department of Labor, February’s unemployment rate was 3.4 percent, which represents a 0.1 of a percentage point increase from the January rate and is still slightly lower than the national average of 3.5 percent. While the number is still low and would not be cause for concern, it also represents the rates before the governor began imposing shutdowns in an effort to slow the … CONTINUED

School board has discussion about director’s contract

Posted by | April 13, 2020 1:19 pm

By Rachel Auberger

The main topic of discussion during the April, 9, 2020, White County Board of Education meeting was the upcoming expiration of the contract for the director of schools.

A new proposed contract was presented to the board that mirrored the 2016 contract that director of schools Kurt Dronebarger has been working under, with a few differences. The board discussed the differences, as well as the consequences that the precedence those changes would set for future directors and boards, before agreeing to the contract in principle. Board member Dave McCulley recused himself from discussions because of his family ties to Dronebarger presenting a conflict of interest.… CONTINUED

Hannah Rogan

“Patience in archery is key, and it was something I struggled with for a very long time,” senior Hannah Rogan, captain of the White County High School archery team, said. “Without it, it is so easy to fall apart in seconds.”

Patience and the ability to keep a smile on her face and laughter in her heart are proving to be important skills for Rogan as her senior year is nothing like she would have imagined when she began shooting as a sixth grader.

“I started shooting in sixth grade at a 4-H camp and instantly loved it,” Rogan said. “They started coaching me themselves … CONTINUED
