  • Touchy Subject

    Education is, and probably always will be, a touchy subject. 

    In Marion County, the school system has been a particularly touchy subject in recent months, and based on the letters to the editor we received this week, it probably will be for the foreseeable future.

    Last week, we reported Superintendent Taylora Schlosser’s response to the board of education’s decision to grant her another 18 months to move to Marion County. She saw that as a necessary decision to provide stability to the system.

  • Work Ready has its advantages

    By Kim Huston

     As communities look for an edge in today’s competitive global economy, there are few things as powerful as developing a high-quality workforce. 

    Here in the Lincoln Trail region, it’s exciting to see multiple counties taking steps to develop a highly skilled workforce that is ready to go to work. Leaders in those counties have applied or are in the process of applying for Work Ready Community certification.

  • Take time to express yourself

    Valuing different foarms of expression is something I have found myself doing more and more often as I age.

    In elementary school, I though girls with piercings were weird. As a teenager, I though tattoos were weird. I rarely wore jeans and didn’t understand how people found them comfortable. I didn’t understand why people didn’t like sports. 

    People that thought differently than me were weird. I was the normal one.
