Today's Opinions

  • Schools, students perform well

    The leaves are turning and fall break is just around the corner — I can’t believe how quickly the first two months of school have gone by. I have to give credit to our teachers and staff for their amazing ability to quickly get students back into the swing of things. From day one, they hit the ground running and got students engaged in learning. I am so thankful we have that kind of staff. 

    I also owe a debt of gratitude to our parents and community who provide endless support to students both inside and outside the classroom.

  • Poor representation is worse than none!

    By Mike DiGiuro

     

    As I cast my view from the back end of the 4th Congressional District  towards Washington DC, I am particularly  annoyed by the actions of our elected representative Thomas Massie; who apparently has no concept of how to govern. 

  • I HEAR THAT TRAIN A COMIN’

    “Mommy, wake up! We’re back where we started!”

    Hubby and I, along with our two little ones, had fallen asleep on the train.  I glanced at my phone. It was nearly 1 a.m.  Then the announcement, “All passengers are requested to exit at this stop.”

  • COMMUNITY CHRONICLED IN NEWSPAPERS

    When I was a little girl, my family lived close enough to town that I could walk to the grocery store. One summer day, my sister and I decided to walk to the store for ice cream and took our dog, Hobo, with us. Hobo soon got hot and tired and demanded he be carried the rest of the way.

  • Fishing Derby a Success

    The LaGrange Police Department hosted its annual Kid’s Fishing Derby this weekend on Saturday, October 5.  Several people have asked me what we were hoping to accomplish by hosting such an event.  Our responsibility to the public is not only to enforce laws and educate citizens about the law, but more importantly, to be a part of the community. Our goal was to encourage positive interactions with police officers and to provide a family-friendly environment in which parents could spend time with their children in a safe and fun setting.

  • Worship that is Pleasing to the Lord

    I remember a delightful evening with friends.  Our hosts had a four-year-old whose favorite super hero was Bible man. He wanted to impress us so he got on his costume.

    He put on his Bible Man mask, his Luke Skywalker light saber, and his Bible woman cape because the purple looks cool, and his Bible man cape was torn.

    His mother asks him the Bible man questions, “Are you ready for battle?” He proclaims yes! She asks about his helmet, shield, sword, and shoes. He makes all the appropriate cute responses.
