Village to upgrade water system

“One of the most basic needs of a community is safe drinking water,” Alexander said in a news release. “With this funding from the USDA, Simsboro residents can rest assured that their local water system will continue to provide clean, healthy water.”

Bulldogs sweep past Skyhawks

Highlighting a 10-hit offense for the Bulldogs was a grand slam home run by sophomore outfielder Chris Bohannon and a solo homer by junior shortstop Nick Grunenwald.
Between that tandem, five hits and five runs batted in were produced.
Making for an even bumpier landing by the Skyhawks were five errors. In the ninth inning, when UTM botched two plays, a creative Tech student located in the apartments back of centerfield hurled a huge “boot” attached to a cord out on to the field. Then reeled it back in just in case there were any more mishaps in the club’s visit to J.C. Love Field.

Original art worth the cost

Original artwork is a one-of-a-kind composition that an artist has actually put his brush to and has spent many long hours working on. Reproductions are customarily mass-produced copies of an original. Generally, you will not find authentic paintings or sculptural works at the local mall or chain retailer.
Jacqueline Cochran, owner of By the Alley Art and Gift Shop, believes that many people are not used to having the opportunity to buy genuine art.
Indeed, when I explained what an original was to my mother, she asked in a rather exasperated tone, “Well, where can I find that?”

Officials sound off on center

Jurors took no action on the plan at Tuesday’s meeting, citing the need for time to consider the project and to get public input.
Convention and Visitors Bureau President Kyle Edmiston said the library board has not involved the CVB in the process, which he feels was a misstep up to this point.

’Dogs: Smooth first day

It was about learning each other, adjusting to the things that a new head coach and his staff wanted to accomplish and the players feeling comfortable with it.
Spin the calendar to a year later and the initial session of spring drills, the 2008 version, was much smoother.
“As far as expectations and executions, we are light years ahead of where we were on the first day of last year,” said Dooley following a two-and-a-half practice on Saturday afternoon. “I remember we couldn’t complete 20 percent of the passes we threw that first day. Today, we threw and caught the ball very well.

Grambling leaders must resolve issues

The mayor, on the other hand, has kept all information close to her vest, even having her daughter volunteer her time in the town hall to try to help while investigators ferret out the breach, whatever that may be.
State Police investigators alluded to a possible theft or misappropriation of funds, and that in itself is concerning. Having the mayor’s daughter in the building is also an ethical issue that cannot be explained away by saying she is only volunteering there.

Hey readers, tell us what you think

For the past half-hour, I’ve been studying the front pages of the past week’s papers. I see stories about sports, education, law enforcement, local government, things to do, business and even one about a three-legged dog. I see local names and faces and spotlights on the achievements of local people. Is this what you like to read?
I do know one thing that many people seem to like — our Women’s History Month feature “Women Who Make a Difference.” The response to the daily profile has been overwhelming, and I’m thrilled.
