The Carroll County commissioners recently voted not to provide medication-assisted treatment to treat opioid use disorder in our county jail. Commissioner Amanda Bevard objected to starting MAT in the jail, saying, “I will not have any part in addicting people to an opiate.” MAT is only used…

What struck me most about the Santa Maria was how tiny she is. A replica sailed into Portland Harbor last month, and I paid $10 to go aboard and look around. More astonishing still was remembering that the Nina and the Pinta — the two caravels sailing with the Santa Maria — were even smaller…

Our county commissioners face a difficult decision regarding medication-assisted treatment in our county jail. And, unfortunately, this is not a simple black-and-white decision as portrayed in the Oct. 3 front page article in the The Conway Daily Sun.

Historical research still requires a lot of driving, and I plan most of my trips to avoid holidays and traffic. Holidays are an annoyance because all the libraries I need to visit are closed, forcing me to waste an expensive day on the road without getting any work done. They also tend to cr…

LOS ANGELES — Once the 2020 presidential campaign leaves the early tests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, the political themes will be California themes, the issues will be California issues, and the values being debated will be California values.

Three cheers for Conway School Board member Courtney Burke. At her very first meeting on April 23, 2018, after she was elected to the board, Burke made it very clear she was determined to make student volunteerism and community service a criteria for high school graduation. Eighteen months l…

America’s divisions are deepening. Evidence is everywhere with the primary divide epitomized by the continuing effort to impeach Donald Trump, hatred of whom is palpable. That division existed long before Trump, but he has come to symbolize it since his election in 2016. Opponents see him as…

Last week, the governor and Legislature came to a resolution on the outstanding budget issues so that a compromise was passed and signed into law. At the end, the agreement came together quickly — driven in part by the Oct. 1 deadline for the Department of Revenue Administration to set local…

My mother couldn’t drive worth a damn, as I began to learn on the afternoon of Nov. 21, 1959. A little wet snow had fallen that day, and there was an icy patch on what we called Joe Nesmith’s hill. The worst thing she could possibly have done was slam on her brakes, so she did precisely that…

Binary isn’t a dirty word among the Scots. Yes, many of the men wear skirts, but it wouldn’t be a good idea to question the masculinity of a kilt-wearing man at the recent Highland Games in Lincoln. Generally, I hate crowds, but I willingly endured the throng that turned out for the Scottish…

Gov. Chris Sununu, the most popular governor in the country has, as of this writing, vetoed in excess of 53 Democrat-sponsored bills. A record of sorts! The vast majority of the vetoes were easy to make, common sense decisions. That said, however, most New Hampshire patriots would consider a…

Late this summer our next-door neighbors moved away, and new ones moved in. For most of my life, the term “next-door” carried a connotation of about a quarter of a mile in distance, at least here on Davis Hill. That, after all, is the minimum distance that ought to separate different househo…
