Seasoned Oak Hill ready for 2013 baseball season

February 22, 2013

It is about that time of year again when you start to hear the pop of the ball hitting the glove, and the ping of the aluminum bat followed by the cheers for a long-driven home run ball. As you maybe could guess, it is time for the high school baseball season to get under way here in West Point.

Summerall: Reality is relative

February 22, 2013

With the marvelous insanity brought on by reality television, (I personally think the phrase is an oxymoron) it was bound to open the field to the eccentric among us. From people who spend 40 days in a remote location trying to survive on rice, coconuts and whatever food they can win in challenges. (I’m sorry. This is not surviving, this is The Price is Right.) Or racing around the world jumping out of airplanes and eating a plateful of squid that is not only still moving but looking at you. None of this resembles reality.

Region’s impoverished beating the odds through “Bridges out of Poverty” sessions

February 22, 2013

There is no one quick way to end poverty in America.
If there were a lone barrier between the impoverished and a single solution to the multitude of problems that surround the poor, that wall would have been torn down many years ago.
“Poverty is a multifaceted problem,” Jodi Pfarr told a crowd of concerned community leaders in Starkville on Friday.
Pfarr knows a little bit about the poor.
Raised in a poor Minnesota family, Pfarr made an early career working for charities and non-profits. She has experienced life in the Middle Class and life in poverty.

Locals absorbing sting of rising gasoline costs

February 22, 2013

How painful it is to look up at a gas sign these days and see fuel prices at nearly $3.70 a gallon, but what’s more painful is having to dig deeper into the pocketbook trying to find money to pay for the increase.
Over the last few weeks gasoline prices have jumped nearly 50 cents a gallon for regular, and when a consumer fills their tank completely up the difference in what they were paying is quite significant.
Like West Point resident Tommy McDonald, most commuters stopping at the pump shake their heads in disbelief at today’s fuel costs.
