  • March program brings awareness to women's sexual assault

    To the editor:

    Vice President Al Gore once said, “I know it’s a challenge to the moral imagination but defeat might serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out.”

    Last month, we went red for women - a color of awareness and concern. Now in March, another color and another issue concerning women should be brought to our attention.

    March is when college campuses promote their “Green Dot” program that brings attention to the vile and heinous act of sexual assault against women.

  • Improving a community begins with each individual

    I’ve often times struggled with my role as a young adult in this county.

    So often, it seems disappointing to look at a place you convinced yourself was a perfect haven as a child, and to then come back years later, and find that like everything else, your hometown has its own set of flaws.

    So many times it’s easy to point out the faults of Harrison County, and not grasp how those weaknesses could be changed. Or perhaps sometimes we’re just not ready to take on that task that seems very overwhelming.
