  • Community must communicate

    "If you just communicate you can get by. But if you skillfully communicate, you can work miracles." - Jim Rohn

     

    Communicating - it's my job.

  • Letter: County did not give the superintendent a fair chance
  • Letter: Smith deserved better

    I want to commend Tiffany Adams on her article in last week's Enterprise. It hit a nerve in me that I haven't had in many years. It's the hot topic in the African American community. If I may quote you, you said that it's 2011, not 1911. Some people in this community are still stuck in time. You also talked about how some teachers acted out their prejudices when you were a student in school.

  • Letter: Embarrassed by the school board

    I am embarrassed to be a Marion County citizen after watching the recent school board meeting that dealt with Mr. Smith's evaluation. Only Mr. Mullins seemed respectful of dealing with facts and focusing on Mr. Smith's work performance. This meeting appeared to be held with a planned agenda. This meeting seemed directed to run him out of town. Congratulations - this is exactly what was accomplished.

  • Letter: Higdons have blessed the community

    New Beginnings Community Church would like to express our gratitude to Jimmy and Jane Higdon of Higdon's IGA for their service to their community. Jimmy and Jane Higdon donated a huge amount of food to many churches, including our own food ministry, allowing us to continue to help struggling families in our community. We pray God's continued blessing over them, and we wish them well in all their future endeavors. They are both true examples of Christ's hands and feet in our community.

  • Letter: Officials should be just

    How are your elected officials to rule?

    The Bible's II Samuel, chapter 23, verse 3 says, "The God of Israel said, the rock  of Israel spake to me, he that ruleth over men must be just ruling in fear of God."

    Thomas Jefferson said, "There is scarcely a King (or would be king) in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and all their children slaves forever."

  • Flip Flop

    People don't usually discuss flip-flops in the dead of winter, but it seems to fit some recent actions and statements by a couple members of the Marion County Board of Education.

    Just six months ago, DeLane Pinkston and Bernard Miles were singing the praises of Superintendent Donald Smith. Since the November elections - when three of Pinkston and Miles' colleagues were voted out of office - it seems they have had a change of heart.
