  • After teaching at G.C. Burkhead Elementary School for 28 years, Debbie McQueary retired in 2005 and joined a homemakers club. This involvement led her to be inducted as the current Hardin County Homemakers president.

  • This is the time of year when children are involved with all kinds of sports and extracurricular activities. For most young people, their parents are deeply involved in these activities as well. Usually, parents are needed for transportation and administration in youth sports. Parents also are important as coaches and support for their child.

    Unfortunately, it often happens parents do not fully understand their role and overstep their involvement. This leads to negative outcomes for the parent and sometimes for the child.

    Where has the summer gone? I can hardly grasp the fact that fall already is upon us. I have noticed that many leaves on the trees in our yard are beginning to turn yellow and fall off. Fall is a beautiful time of the year, but it is hard for me to enjoy the beauty, for realizing that winter is just around the corner. Hopefully it will be a snowless winter. I know many of my cowriters can hardly wait for snow. Well it isn’t impossible to suit everyone.
