  • ‘Harrison County School System, Grade F’

    When I sent my child to school last Tuesday it was with the full expectation that he would have the opportunity to view the President’s address to students. As I came to find out, the vast majority of students in Harrison County were not given the chance to view the address at that time. I began making phone calls to uncover the reasoning behind this.

  • School system attempts to lower back-to-school bill

    Like many kids in Harrison County, my niece and nephew went back-to-school shopping this past weekend.

    Emma, 10, and Will, 8, were a little reluctant to give up their lazy mornings and homework-free afternoons, but they both couldn’t help  getting excited about back-to-school shopping.

    Each first day of school deserves a new outfit, right?

    Both in elementary school at Southside, there were many things that didn’t make an appearance on Emma and Will’s shopping lists.

    The Harrison County school system beat them to the punch.

  • Cancer care close by

    It’s before 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning and George Boulden, 77, sits in a reclining chair at Harrison Memorial Hospital.

    He began his fourth chemotherapy treatment just hours ago.

    “When you hear the big words ‘cancer,’ know that you can do it and God will take care of you,” Boulden said.

    Boulden was diagnosed with B-Cell Lymphoma earlier this year.

    “One Saturday night I found this big lump,” he said. “Monday morning, I went to my doctor and it went from there.”
