  Nobody pays any attention to infrastructure, until ... The water turns brown. The lights won’t come on. The stuff is bubbling up out of the ground. The roads look like gator-skin. There’s potholes everywhere. Lots of times, when those things happen, it’s already too late for a quick-fix. It takes...
  This quote from Georgia O’Keefe rounds out the on-line bio of Clinton High School Visual Arts Teacher Adri Jordan on the CHS website. Jordan and her students, Sydney Raber and Kaitey Threatt, recently completed 35 days of mural painting at a Clinton church. Dedication of their mural was Oct. 27,...
  Wise parents discipline their children. They take the advice of Solomon in Proverbs 29:17, Discipline your child, and it will bring you peace of mind and give you delight (CSB).  The concept of discipline is not primarily punishment, but training, like an athlete trains her body in order to...
