A random sampling of observation

February 25, 2013

By Steve Boggs

It has been an eventful week here in Saline County. We can’t seem to shake a stubborn winter, the Benton boys and girls basketball teams are on historic marches toward the state playoffs, and real progress is being made on the worthwhile Saline Crossing Regional Park effort.
It is also worth pointing out that Wednesday’s edition of the Courier was 100 percent local. It was our first in a while, but certainly won’t be our last. The newsroom’s efforts to drive more local content into our pages are paying off, and our readers will certainly see that moving forward.

Common Sense: Easy like Sunday morning

February 25, 2013

Sunday is a day of rest. It’s the last day of the weekend. According to the Bible, it’s the day that God took time off from his creation and it was good.
It’s a day of worship, relaxation, recharging, family and friends. By its very nature, Sunday is different than the other days of the week.
So, shouldn’t your newspaper be different on Sunday also? The answer is … yes.
During the coming weeks, watch for changes in the Sunday edition of the Saline Courier. A few of the changes are already in place today.

COMMON SENSE: It's hard to visualize $16,000,000,000,000, just ask your uncle

February 24, 2013

By Brent Davis, editor of The Saline Courier

At 10:30 a.m. yesterday, my debt was $52,504. By the time you read this, the amount will grow second by second … and there is nothing I can do to stop it.
The $52,504 represents my share of the national debt which was $16,538,350,597,830. Visit the website www.usdebtclock.org, but do so at your own peril. The site is full of information, but the most disturbing part of the site is watching the U.S. national debt grow by hundreds of thousands of dollars before your very eyes.
