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.

New police cruisers arrive

January 31, 2013

Imagine just how much wear and tear your vehicle would suffer if it was driven almost nonstop every single day of the week. Now ask yourself about how much you would be out of pocket in maintenance expenses trying to keep that car in operation.

OHA’s elementary curriculum lays the foundation for college

January 31, 2013

Oak Hill Academy Counselor Francis Dawkins says that when the state backed off raising the number of credits required for graduation in English, Math, Science and Social Studies, OHA did no such thing.
In fact, the West Point academy raised its standards to above the national average for credits required for graduation.
“Students need that in order to be successful in college,” Dawkins said on Thursday morning. “They need to be pushed because that’s what’s going to happen in college.”

Emily Jones: The art of hiding imperfections

January 30, 2013

Deluded though I am, I fancy myself a master at concealing my imperfections to achieve the illusion that I’ve got my act together. Ha. Like people don’t know I draw on my eyebrows every morning before I go out to pick up the paper.
Sometimes my efforts at innocent subterfuge come back to bite me. I had a leak in my refrigerator which caused an angry dark stain on my hardwood floor about five inches long and two inches wide. I called Mr. Fixit guy and he came out and “fixed it.” To hide the stain I bought an attractive rug runner and placed it over the imperfection. Problem solved, sort of.

Lady Raiders deliver in final road games

January 30, 2013

Stan Hughey’s squad is back on track. After pulling off their fourth straight win Tuesday night, this time a 65-49 contest over Lamar in Meridian, the Lady Raiders look primed and ready for a run at the district and state title. Oak Hill used a high scoring first half to pull away early from the fifth-ranked Raiderettes and hold them at bay despite a 24-point performance from Olivia Mabry.
