  • For Neal Gibbs, retirement launched a new focus on instilling leadership qualities in middle school students.

    Born in Brooklyn, and raised in North Carolina, a 27-year career in the Army brought Gibbs to Fort Knox. He was a 19 Delta Calvary Scout and retired as a first sergeant.

    Gibbs, 47, was preparing to retire from the Army while substitute teaching when a position teaching Junior Leadership Corps classes at North Middle School was created. The job, he said, sounded right up his alley.

  • Kids today really don't know what they're missing by opting for indoor games over what you can do outdoors.

    When was the last time you saw a bunch of kids walking to a ball field to just play baseball or softball? How about soccer or football?

    Rarely, I would guess, is your answer because it certainly is mine.

    Hello friends, I hope you all are not frozen up yet. I know sometimes lately I think I might freeze up, but not yet. I guess it too cold for many happenings. I hope there will be some great things going on the closer we get to spring.

    SYMPATHY. I would like to extend sympathy to Norman Compton’s family. Norman lived and worked around Hardin County back in the 70s through the 90s or maybe longer. I remember him as a good man. I know he will be missed by his family and friends.
