  • 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.

    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.
