Just Reminiscing with Roy Bale

“Life’s Dues”

The creation below started as a column for writer Dan O’Connor of Nevada. Dan is a native of Tipperary Ireland, been in America a wheelbarrow load of years. He wrote a column for the paper, submitted it, they rejected it. Dan was discouraged, just canned it, then sent it to me. I looked it over, it had much good, some bad -- I could see why the paper rejected it. I took out the beer drinking and Irish Pubs and racy women, rearranged many lines, added words, sent it back, he was amazed. He said “It’s now yours.” I said, “no, it’s ‘ours.’” For my column, I added three lines, September, my dear sister Ophelia in Nevada, and my niece the girl named Sue in Nevada, who is dying of cancer. The story below could be your story, or mine. Anyone’s, really. Enjoy. Oh, yeah, “Mama” was one of my additions also. Angie will like that.

Tiger Times with Trevor Rogers

From time to time, it’s probably a good idea to keep you up to date on the various programs and services that L-KCISD provides. Like all businesses, the education business must constantly watch its finances and operations. We are proud to say that L-KCISD is in fine shape financially. This past year, the district was able to put about $150,000 back into its fund balance. In order to put money back at the end of the year, a district must operate in such a way that serves students and staff but at the same time is mindful of its spending. We are also proud to let you know that we had a clean audit that included receiving a perfect score of “100” on the statewide financial accountability system the state uses for school districts.

Engagement in the arts proves to be a win-win for students

Whether you’re a parent, an educator, a business owner or a policy maker, each of us has a vested interest in the success of the students in our community. 
They represent the future of our state, and the impact of the education they receive today will have a positive ripple effect for generations.
And, what happens here locally impacts our community and our state. We are testaments to that. Both of us are proud graduates of Atlanta High School and were members of the “Big Bad Band from Rabbitland.” 
We were also privileged to take Mrs. Tomberlain’s speech class in high school. The experience performing in front of others – in class and on the field – helped shape us as individuals and as professionals, giving us confidence that has echoed throughout our lives.

Cherish your holiday time to share with family

Here in America we have a holiday each month throughout the year.
I believe Super Bowl Sunday can be pegged as one since more wings are eaten on that day than most any other.
To me no holidays hold a candle to Thanksgiving and Christmas simply because those are two holidays that bring families together .Some may look forward to these holidays because of the food aspect, but family will be the top reason why people love and enjoy the holiday season.
Hold on to those times if you are lucky to have them because there might come a day when you don’t see your family unless someone passes away.
Take my family for instance. When I was younger my entire family met at one place for Christmas and one place for Thanksgiving.
My great-grandmother on my dad’s side lived in Center where we spent Christmas, and my great-grandmother on my mom’s side lived in Linden where we would gather for Thanksgiving.
