  The editor: The genocide of the disadvantaged and those in poor health has begun.  Over 22 million people are being singled out to be denied decent health care.  The current GOP bill eliminates $460 billion in taxes now being paid by drug manufacturers, medical equipment manufacturers, insurers,...
  In Genesis 2:18, God says about Adam, “It is not good for the man to be alone.  I will make a helper suitable for him.”  Thus man and woman, husband and wife, under the leadership of God have been designed to fight together in the battles of life. To be a helper is not a second-hand title, nor is...
  Many great things are happening in Laurens County School District 56 and across the county. Often the long-trudge from December to April is fraught with malaise, apathy, and an overall drudgery; however, we have been most fortunate to have had a banner year in the district.
