Summerall: Young and stupid

February 16, 2013

I have often wondered who decided that kids who graduate high school at 17 or 18 years old have enough sense to make decisions that impact the rest of their lives. I know when I was young, I was stupid. Young and stupid, two words that are synonymous. Case in point, ask a kid in high school what they want to study in college.
“I don’t know.”
“You’re going to have to major in something.”
“I don’t know what I want to do. I don’t want to have to take a bunch of math.”
“You have to have math.”

Chad Scott: West Point/Clay County should end water fluoridation

February 15, 2013

97% OF WESTERN EUROPE HAS CHOSEN FLUORIDE-FREE WATER This includes:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy,
Luxembourg, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Norway, Scotland, Sweden,
and Switzerland. (While some European countries add fluoride to salt,
the majority do not.) Thus, rather than mandating fluoride treatment
for the whole population, western Europe allows individuals the right
to choose, or refuse, fluoride.

Classes offer citizens “bridges out of poverty”

February 14, 2013

There will be a very important community training seminar in Starkville one week from today.
Attendance from West Point’s community leaders could lead to a significant impact on poverty and the town’s economy.
“Bridges out of Poverty” is an organization that has taught communities that benefits and effectiveness of empowering those in poverty rather than just writing checks to different charities.
Lynn Phillips-Gaines spoke to the West Point Rotary Club last week about the “Bridges” program and the impact it has had on Starkville.

President outlines goals for technocratic society

February 13, 2013

“Is there aught a remedy for this neglect of rural life? Let us, at least, yield ourselves to the gratifications of a beautiful dream that there is. In our dream, we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our moulding hand. The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or of science.
