  • Grace Notes

    Recently, a friend came to me with "the look." As the mom of a teenager, her face said what her words couldn't: "What happened to my child - what happened to me? I used to be smart; I used to be competent, and now I can't do anything right. I even breathe wrong. Just ask my kid."

    I hugged my friend and said, "Oh! It gets worse. But then it gets better!"

    Since then, I've been thinking a lot about my friend and how I can actually be a friend to her in these next few years. Truthfully, I am woefully lacking in friendship skills.

  • Court adds half million to jail fund

    Magistrates took steps Tuesday night to transfer an additional $150,000 of this year's budget to replenish the nearly depleted jail fund.

    Some magistrates, however, say this may not be enough to pay for upcoming jail costs, and other steps may become necessary.

    Earlier in Tuesday's meeting, magistrates had also approved the transfer of nearly $325,000 from the general fund to the jail fund.

    On Wednesday, Taylor County Treasurer Melissa Williams said that money is a third of the amount already budgeted to be placed into the jail fund.
