Incorrect reporting by Winston Skinner in regards to Yates’ firing by president. She refused to follow executive orders. She took a political stand rather than do her job. He had every right to fire her. To say otherwise is biased and fake news. Sad it has reached our little local newspaper.

We are halfway through high school football season. Why aren't we seeing stats on individuals, schools, and county leaders? Individual game stats or yardsticks are also important, as they can sometimes tell more about the game than the write-ups themselves.
I wonder what the postal service thinks the return addresses are put on mail for. If they don’t want to or can’t deliver it to its destination, why not return it to the sender?
Prison Talk: People, just think about spending all your life in here. I mean, you have no freedom in here. You do what are you are told to do. You can’t go out and play when you want to.
