“Go Hard MS” visits WPHS

February 5, 2013

Every 23 seconds a student drops out of school. The group with Go Hard Mississippi, a drop out preventative program want to change that, at least in Mississippi schools. Aldric Beal of Newton, and a graduate of Newton High School, has been with the program for two years and wants to get teens excited about staying in school.
“We want to interact with the kids and have fun,” said Beal. “We try to throw in a few life lessons and hope the message will stick with them. They need to stay in school and prepare for their future. I hope a few of them get that.”

The Grand Chess Board

February 5, 2013

It is often said that “children are our most valuable resources.”
If that is coming out of a parent’s mouth, it is probably meant with the best of intentions.
If those are the words of a politician or a political change agent, the meaning is likely entirely different.
While parents naturally see children as the next in line to take up the torch for the previous generation, politicians view kids as nothing more than human resources or pawns.

Summerall: I like to see him cry

February 2, 2013

The Super Bowl is always the grand spectacle that ends the football season for another year. You have so much hope for your team when they start pre-season play at the end of August. The slate is clean and as long as they weren’t totally abysmal the year before, you hope to still see them at the end of the season. Saints fans haven’t always had the opportunity for hope.

Yarber: The value of pre-need planning

January 31, 2013

Are you a planner? Remember how people prepared for Y2K, the beginning of the millennium year 2000. Computers had been representing the year with only two digits instead of four digits which could cause the computer systems to interpret 00 as 1900 instead of 2000. This would mess up all major industries including utilities, banking, manufacturing, telecom, and airlines. While companies spent billions of dollars preparing their systems, some people built shelters and others stocked imperishable food items, plus batteries and oil for lamps, and other things considered essential for survival.

Brinkley: A mad dash to nowhere

January 31, 2013

There is nothing that makes us get in a bigger hurry than when trouble gets on our trail. Trouble has a way of making us freak out. Trouble can even make us give up on life. That’s one of the reasons Satan uses trouble to break us down.
I’m trying to get you to see that trouble has a way of finding us but GOD has a way of redeeming us. Trouble has a way of trapping us but GOD has a way of the saving us. You can run but you can’t hide from trouble. It has your name. Trouble has your number.
