Just Another Onionhead

Dw.cdrHamburgers hot off the grill scream for fresh tomatoes and onions. I didn’t always think so. I don’t exactly remember when I started really liking onions but now I consider a sweet onion one of life’s little pleasures. And few onions come sweeter than those from Vidalia, GA.

Since 1990 the official state vegetable of Georgia is the Vidalia onion. These onions are acclaimed internationally as the world’s sweetest.

He Was No Average Joe…

Dw.cdrI’ve had time to gather some thoughts about Joe Snyder. There’s so much to remember. Whatever I want to write hovers just out of grasp, inadequate, incomplete. But as always, the deadline approaches. If anybody understands deadlines and the inadequacy of words, it would be the ol’ master wordsmith, Joe, and his beloved wife, Kathy. So, I’ll try.

Liz and I may have been making the mortgage payments while major

The Smartest Man in the Country

Dw.cdrThe country’s smartest man has to live someplace in America. But would you believe in Mercer County here in North Missouri?

Some do.

The Public Broadcasting System (PBS) has launched a new TV series this week called The One Show. In its first edition, presenter Michael Mosley asks whether it is possible to raise your IQ, and discovers schemes that can apparently increase a person’s intelligence. In America, he visits

Ready or Not, Here Comes Tuesday

Dw.cdrMany words have been written these past weeks, proving that the complexities in financing city services defy brief explanation. Another letter to the editor in this last print edition before next Tuesday’s election offers more evidence.

I feel compelled to clarify what I hope is obvious. Space provided for views we do not endorse is the standard policy of this newspaper. The newspaper business is all about competition, including the

City of Gallatin’s Public Meeting

Dw.cdrIt takes money to make money. Do you believe this adage?

On Tuesday, April 8, Gallatin voters will decide whether to actually put money to that truth. The vote will be on a half-cent sales tax. If it passes, a list of much needed improvements can be attempted, each of which promises to save us significant money whenever completed. If the vote  fails, then not much on the list will

Off the Editor’s Spike

Dw.cdrYou are what you eat. Or, as Debbie Sweatman and other champions of the upcoming family Literacy Night at Searcy R-5 Elementary would say, you are what you read.

Cold winter nights make nibbling on junk food all too comforting — novels, several delicious mysteries, a reread of nearly all of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic Sherlock Holmes tales, and a variety of books about my favorite subject, the Civil War.

A Job Very Well Done

Dw.cdrLast Wednesday Liz and I thought we’d grab a sandwich uptown, to celebrate another print edition of this community newspaper we’d just put to bed. Little did we know we would witness a major tragedy – almost from its origin – and an even a greater display of competent professionalism from the men and women who can proudly claim the title of Gallatin Volunteer Fire Fighter.

The skill exhibited by

Who Should Pay for the Audit?

Dw.cdr“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.”

That famous line from a 1976 satirical movie called “Network” comes to mind, and not because of the four Oscar awards it won that year or because of the latest Oscar awards televised just this past weekend. No, that line comes to mind every time I think about a petition recently circulated in Gallatin, protesting municipal utility rates.

The Death of a Dream

Dw.cdrWe go to the doctor when we’re sick. So, when the doctor’s sick, where does he go?

Thanks to the Affordable Health Care Act, the future for traditional, general practice family physicians is sick. Realistically for these independent hometown health care providers, there is no future. There’s no longer any long term future for this way of health care. Someday this “sickness” will be terminal.

Many experts and politicians are
