  • Parent involvement promotes children’s success

    I had the privilege of attending a Title I meeting for our schools on Monday night at Kathryn Winn Primary. I will refer to the experience in the loosest sense of the term as a “meeting” because the only people there was myself and Gerda Wise with the school district. Despite the low number of attendees I found it to be very informative and felt this month’s column would be an excellent vehicle for sharing the information with others.

  • Arney offers three things you can do to eat better

    When asked to critique people’s diets and come up with changes that they would make, sometimes some of the changes made are more significant than others. However, one thing often found is that there are similar mistakes being made, which ultimately means that they are seen and the same changes needing to be made are on a continual basis.

    Highlighted below are the three most common changes that are needed within your diet, based on the diets seen on a day-to-day basis.

  • Those who believe should not keep their faith private

    In our day of political correctness and cultural diversity, or another term used is pluralism, a

    theory that there is more than one basic substance or principle. I often hear the following

    statement: “Faith is a private matter.” Mostly this statement comes from those that are opposed to religion altogether. It is the political correct way to say, “Keep your belief to yourself.”

    What has bothered me lately is I have heard the same “Faith is a private matter” from those who believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • Bus drivers make the difference

    A school district cannot function without bus drivers. The best teachers, the best curriculum and the best facilities are all pointless without students, and in the Carroll County School District, about 1,000 students arrive at their school each day on one of the district’s buses. Unfortunately, like many school districts across the state, Carroll is facing a bus driver shortage.
