Opinions Fuel Feud

Jackie Anderson's "Opinions Fuel Feud" layout is today’s scrapbook inspiration. The swirly leaves on Jackie's page are a gift from Betty, one of Jackie's scrapbook friends.

Jackie says:
The photo is of me when I was a reporter for our local newspaper preparing to go underground for a story on a local coal mine. I was undergoing safety training with the required safety goggles and self- rescue breathing device. I would later also don coveralls, a hard hat, and boots.

The article is one that appeared in our state's largest newspaper after I was fired for taking an anti-war position and insisting that my opinion piece run beside those of other staff members who supported a military response to terrorism. My column called for a police response utilizing the United Nations. I stood on principle and it cost me a job that I loved and my belief in a functioning free press, but it remains one of my proudest moments.
