  • Prisoners are there for the taking

    Just about the same time that a story in this paper told of jail construction being a month behind, another story in another paper told of our state's prisons being overcrowded.

    That will be good news (if it's still true when our jail opens) to everyone who has a hand in seeing that the County's new facility breaks even or, better yet, turns a profit.

  • School needs to be reassessed

    Thanks to a new formula that considers the age of school buildings, Taylor County Schools will reassess its building needs.

    "We're potentially talking millions of more dollars of needs," Wood said.

    More need, Superintendent Gary Seaborne said, means a greater offer of assistance from the state.
