  • Fighting for another chance

    In the 1990s, federal officials decided to show they were getting tough on crime by implementing a “three strikes you’re out” law.
    Darrell Hayden’s third strike occurred in 1999 when he was arrested on federal charges of manufacturing marijuana and conspiracy charges in Michigan. He was convicted in 2001, and because Hayden had two prior convictions (also for growing marijuana), he was sentenced to two life sentences with 10 years of supervised probation.

  • School board: Superintendent is ‘excellent’

    It only took a few minutes Monday evening for Marion County Board of Education Chairman DeLane Pinkston to read a glowing evaluation of Superintendent Taylora Schlosser.

The board voted 4-0 to approve the summative evaluation.

  • Take time to appreciate others

    "Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret."
    - Mary Kay Ash

    Editor’s note: This column was written in response to a column that appeared in the July 23 edition of the Enterprise.

    When I take a look around our great nation (through my own eyes versus the mass media), I see a nation that continues to bloom with compassion and good will. Where great people work hard every day to extend a helping hand to those less fortunate in economics and education.

  • School is back in session: Drive slow and let them grow

    Years ago J.T. Whitlock would run PSA commercials every year when school started. One of his favorite messages was “Drive slow and let them grow.” I thought these were a little on the corny side, but they were effective. Folks, school is starting this week and everyone is a little excited and out of their summer routine. Traffic will be heavy with all the moms and dads headed to school with their children for that first day. School buses will be out on the roads after a short summer recess. So, slow down, be patient and remember: Drive slow and let them grow.
