  • Helping parents during time of grief

    When parents receive the happy news of a new baby coming, their thoughts probably first go to sharing the announcement with family and friends. Then on to cribs, strollers, diapers, getting a nursery together and preparing the baby’s older siblings to the arrival of a new member to the family.

    It is a blessed and happy time for all. Preparations are many – making the thought of preparing for a funeral the last thing on anyone’s mind.

  • BLOG UPDATE WED.: From the front lines at the RNC

    WEDNESDAY

    We slept in a bit after a late night. Lynn went out with some delegates to a Styx concert and arrived back at the hotel at some unearthly hour. In the morning (late morning) I went to the Minneapolis Convention Center to see and help with the relief efforts for the hurricane. The bicycle donation ride by Humana was up and going and the volunteers were busy at the convention hall assembling relief packages. It gave me a great feeling to watch people helping other folks unconditionally.

  • SCHS Golf Classic

    It is time for the second annual SCHS Athletics Golf Classic. We were very pleased with our results and turnout last year and hope to make this years event bigger, better and more enjoyable.

We encourage all of our community members and supporters participate in this event at some level.

  • LETTER: School board is not listening

    I attended the August school board meeting and was very disappointed and angry over the outcome. 

    A ruling was handed down by Jack Conway stating that it was illegal to have a closed meeting to discuss the evaluation of our superintendent.  Yet, instead of accepting that, some of our board members have decided to use money which could be well spent in our schools, to fight this ruling.  And they have the nerve to say they are doing what is right for our children.
