God was taken out of schools and government, and it shows!
Community, educate yourselves before the election. Who is on the ballot, all farmers? Are they people of integrity, honor, humble, patient? Remember politicians’ and farmers’ names, and come Election Day, vote, vote, vote!
Fresh faces to ensure the people’s voices are heard. Majority rule! More importantly, as a community, forgive so the healing can begin. Because without health, there is no wealth.

Article explains issue with school transfers
Saturday’s front page article about the proposed school transfer bill was quite informative. I now understand school districts’ hesitation to take transfer students on a first come, first served basis.
What really caught my attention in the article was the “junior” boy out at Western last year with only four high school credits. Why was he classified as a junior? Just because he’d spent three years in high school?
Did he know he wasn’t going to graduate within four years? Shouldn’t he have been with the freshmen who probably (I’m just guessing) have the same amount of credits? Will he get one of the waivers I’ve read about in order to get a diploma without the necessary credits?
Was he counseled in any way about his lack of progress? Could he have transferred to an alternative school to earn credits? Were his parents cooperative and involved? His situation concerned me, and if he’s uninterested/unmotivated, I sympathize with the school professionals trying to help him.
