No Reserve, No Retreat, No Regrets

I realize that not everyone in this town (or anywhere) are all Christian.  I also realize that many might think I am foolish for being a sold-out, committed follower of Jesus Christ.  But I am greatly disturbed and concerned when it seems like I (and all other Christians) are given less and less freedoms and […]

School Board – Prop KIDS

Dear Editor, This past April, a diverse representation of your community met in a series of meetings to discuss strengths and weaknesses of the Scotland County R-1 School District.  The result of the meetings of this Vision Committee was a list of projects that were deemed necessities to be addressed in the short-term.  This list […]

Not for Proposition Kids

After reading the “Letter to the Editor” the last couple of weeks, I felt compelled to write a Letter to the Editor this week.  To be up front and honest I should point out that one, I am friends with Dr. Davis as well as John Boland and two, I am not for the Proposition […]

Students’ Growth & Progress

Dear Mr. Editor: I’ve had the privilege of working on the Proposition K.I.D.S. (Keep Improving District Schools) Committee for the past several weeks. During this time I have come to believe that our committee and community have our students’ overall growth and progress at heart. I truly believe that our school, community and families share […]

Proposition K.I.D.S.

Dear Editor, I am writing this letter in favor of Proposition K.I.D.S.  I actually don’t think I have ever voted for a tax levy increase requested by a school district.  I have voted regularly for the last 23 years, but just don’t think it has ever been a ballot issue in a community in which […]

Proposition KIDS

Dear Sir, As retired teachers, we would like to express our support for Proposition K.I.D.S.  All of us have served in the Scotland County R-1 School District for many years and understand that our children, in order to succeed, need the very best possible environment. Infrastructure improvements, such as upgrading safety and security, technology, and […]

Public Health Funding

Dear Editor: I am writing on an urgent matter that deserves the citizens of Scotland County’s  attention and if willing their immediate action. Governor Nixon has indicated that he is continuing to withhold the funding in the State budget for FY15 that includes the line item for local public health agencies in the state. These  […]

Third Annual Prayer Walk

If we ask anyone between five-years old and one hundred what “Holiday” falls on October 31st, 100 percent will resound: “Halloween!” If we ask the same individuals what the next day proclaims, I guess 90 percent would stare back bewildered, because All Saint’s Day, November 1st, remains unknown by many, even Christians, as does All […]

Proposition KIDS

Dear Editor and Citizens of Scotland County, The Scotland County R-I Elementary PTO would like to acknowledge our full support for Proposition K.I.D.S. (Keep Improving District Schools) on the upcoming ballot on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. Proposition K.I.D.S. levy increase would allow SCR-I to make facility upgrades to the elementary and high school buildings; complete […]

The Best Social Program Remains a Job

By Robert Romano On September 4, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and Fast Food Forward promised to shut down fast food joints across America in their Fight for $15 campaign. The groups propose increasing the minimum wage nationwide to $15 an hour from its current $7.25 level. The groups tout the increase as the means to lift […]
