Mom was always concerned about all children's well being. She loved all children, and she couldn't understand why innocent children as young as 1 year old were being abused, molested and even killed by evil and wicked people.
American children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of abuse and neglect. Every year, more than three million reports of child abuse are made involving more than six million children in the United States.
A vast majority of parents of 3- and 4-years-olds would be interested in enrolling their children in a preschool program, according survey results reported at the Sept. 9 Marion County Board of Education meeting.
Superintendent Taylora Schlosser said countywide preschool is a big dream for the district, but she would like to see more kids enrolled in preschool programs, whether they are with Marion County Public Schools, St. Augustine or somewhere else.
Lebanon Baptist Church is hosting Judgement House for the second year.

The 60-minute presentations will take place from 6-9 p.m. each night of the event. Admission is free. The event is not handicapped accessible due to stairs. Strobe lights are used during the program, and it’s not recommended for children under 10 years old.
Visitors should know that childcare will not be available.
Things had been relatively quiet around the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission for the past few years.
After a period of controversy, during which the commission’s continued existence was in question and a former executive director left for a job in a larger organization, things seemed to settle down. Even when the next director left and Carla Abbi (formerly Carla Wagner) rose to the executive director’s seat, the commission seemed to make a relatively smooth transition.
