Words have an impact

Cornbread in milk was my favorite dessert growing up. It was a staple in my home. My mother enjoyed her cornbread in buttermilk, but I prefer to crumble up my cornbread in sweet milk and eat it with a spoon. I can still taste the amazing flavor of my mother's warm, homemade cornbread combined with ice cold milk. It makes my mouth water even today.

Honoring the office

Dear editor: It never ceases to amaze me how the people who write letters to the "In my opinion" section of The Sentinel-Record seem to enjoy disrespecting each other. These are just opinions, people, so please quit attacking each other!

Inattentive drivers

I believe 90 percent of all wrecks and near-wrecks not involving alcohol or drugs are caused by In Attentive Drivers (IAD). These are drivers who don't care about their own safety or mine, or they are too stupid to realize they are endangering everyone around them.
