COLUMN – I will admit from the beginning I have a very real bias in this case. The young girl victimized by now convicted sex offender Bobby Hickson is a neighbor and the family members are personal friends. I was deeply involved in the case from the very beginning. Although I do not begrudge Circuit Court Judge Thomas Russo for his ruling to agree to accept the plea agreement, I think the agreement did not fit the crime.

Getting the Most Out Church 7: Growth Needed

RELIGION – We are continuing to look at how to get the most out of church. Getting the most out of church means you will be a growing Christian. My sons are 5 and 2 ¾ years old. They are at great ages. My two year old rocks long curly blonde hair, a huge smile, and is missing his front tooth. While my five year old wakes each day to pretend he is going to work as a logger. I love their ages now. But if in three years neither boy has grown or matured what would this indicate? A big problem!

Back to School Tax Exempt Items Examined
A Column by the Editor
web reposted July 24, 2012
COLUMN – It is that time of year when parents scramble to fulfill the daunting task of gathering the long list of back to school items each school, and in some cases even the teachers, require for a return to class. Pens, paper, pencils, notebook paper, book bags, and other necessary items can add up at the checkout counter so our illustrious leaders in Columbia have seen fit to exclude sales taxes to help lessen the burden. And you know anytime politicians get involved it is going to be hilarious. So I thought I would examine some of the items and how they relate to “back to school”.

However; those who complained that the grass was not being cut or the park was being maintained are well founded in their complaints. It is true the park was ignored by the county since 2007, long before the Republican majority took over. The shortfall lies squarely on the back of District 1 County Councilman Norman Dorn.
