    Yard sale leftovers? Donate to The Caring Place

    The staff at The Caring Place hopes that everyone enjoys their yard sale adventures this weekend.

    The Caring Place has a full house at this time and several of our families are getting ready to move into their own homes. Please keep in mind that they have left their homes with very few personal items and no furniture.

  • Three steps forward, four steps back

    For all of the steps forward the Marion County School System has taken in the last year, it appears that they have taken a giant step backwards this spring.

    From the meeting notes of the Marion County High School Site Base Council, it appears that Marion County High School has once again hired Anthony Epps as an assistant coach for both the football and girls basketball teams.

  • Girls rule

    Girls in Marion County are lucky to have such good support from organizations like Girls on the Run, 4-H, and Girls Scouts. We need to give a big pat on the back to the adult volunteers and parents that help make these programs available to our girls. With these programs, girls learn to believe in themselves and to grow up to be strong and accomplished women.

  • Rich should 'step up'

    "One man with courage is a majority." - Thomas Jefferson

    The spirit of Carnegie needs to be reborn in the multi-, multi-millionaire, billionaire class.

    They have the excess funds to build bridges, dams, roadways, libraries, universities and vocational schools.

    The middle class and families need not, should not, be burdened with these issues.

    The super rich elites need to step up and do what is good for all and the future.

    Congressman responds to Mullins’ guest editorial

    I would like to respond to Michael Mullins' April 25th guest editorial. It is difficult to discern the full context of my speech when he only read a few short excerpts, however I would like to clarify my underlying point regarding the budgetary situation.
