  • Citizens voice issues with school system

    Emotions were running high at Loretto City Hall Monday evening as concerned and curious community members gathered to discuss issues they are having with the Marion County Public School System, specifically with its leadership.

    Marion County School Board Member Mike Cecil organized the forum, but said the crowd was larger than he had expected (there were approximately 50 to 75 people there). With so many people in attendance, Cecil said he and Board Chairman DeLane Pinkston, who was also in attendance, would be doing a lot of listening.
