  • The greatest generation indeed

     For years, I have been interested in the decade 1940-1950, where our young men and women sacrificed so much to fight the Nazi regime in Europe and the Japanese in the south Pacific.

    Never have so many Americans worked in concert to defend democracy and defeat two horrendous and oppressive governments bent on world domination.

    It’s amazing that our men and women both on the battlefield and at home never complained about anything. They knew the job had to get done and they did it.

  • Marion County Board of Education leaves unanswered questions

    In light of the recent action taken by the Marion County School Board and other members of our community, there are many unanswered questions.
    1. What prompts the school board to amend the requirements of residency for the present school superintendent? It is said they voted their conscience.
    Was their conscience “Missing in action” when similar circumstances were in evidence during the time that Mr. Donald Smith served as superintendent?
