The Sedition Act restricted speech that was critical of the federal government. In fact, the Sedition Act caused the prosecution and conviction of a number of Jeffersonian newspaper owners who openly disagreed with the government. Just to be safe, Trump should bring back the Sedition Act and hang 'em high, all.

    Six years ago this month in this same space, The Highland County Press heartily encouraged support for the February 2011 proposed expansion at PAS Technologies in Hillsboro. As we noted at the time, the proposed expansion of PAS Technologies in Hillsboro has a potential annual economic impact of close to $5 million just in additional salaries. Think about that.

    Maybe the mainstreamers should take a look at the 2016 presidential election from a national county-by-county red/blue map. Those political colors will closely mirror the metropolitan media concentrations. Meanwhile, respect for law and order and national security – as well as a little country common sense – still prevail in the heartland. Welcome to OUR sanctuary.

    Of all the villages and communities in Highland County, I suppose I have to admit that I’ve always held Fairfax as one of my favorites. There are many reasons. And there are many stories collected over the past half-century. (Not all of which are suitable for publication.) Kirk Dickey, a longtime Fairfax resident – and former pal of the late Oscar-winning actor John Wayne – recently stopped by The Highland County Press with a little bit of Fairfax history that was news to me.

    Thanks to the Hillsboro Police Department for its recent actions against widespread animal waste (not to be confused with fertilizer) from East Walnut Street to East Main Street on the south side of the 100 block of High Street. Unfortunately, the arrest and fine haven’t had much of an impact. Meanwhile, watch your step. Those aren’t mud clods. Next time, let’s set the stuff on fire. Who got the lighter?

    Has it really been 40 years since a 15-year-old Whiteoak High School sophomore called WSRW Radio’s Willard Parr early one winter morning and identified himself as Bright Local School Superintendent Keith Day and told the Hall of Fame broadcaster: “Willard, Keith Day here. Bright Local schools are closed?” (That really happened. A short while later on that frigid January morning, the real Superintendent Keith Day called in and officially closed the schools.)

    Almost everyone has a Bill Bear story. Or two. Or 10. Surely, everyone in Pricetown and Buford has a Bill Bear story. What a true character. And what a personality.

    Welcome to the Fourth Estate, Hayden Taylor. (A word to the wise: You might want to avoid the whiskey writers for at least a couple of decades.)

    Yes, Dear Readers, it is that time again (with apologies). Indeed, in these waning days of our Lord’s year 2016, it is time for your only locally indebted and appreciative newspaper owner to wax philosophical on his new year’s resolutions for the year of our Lord 2017.

    His family has now had 27 Christmases without him, but his lessons and his love stay with them all. He taught them how to cherish this time, and how special it is. He made sure his family always had a good Christmas.
