Your Schools: Ponder these headlines
Thought for the New Year:
Looking forward, may I be filled with hope.
Looking upward may I be aware of strength.
Looking inward, may I find peace."
A few of the Journal's headlines in December: "Arsonist heading to jail;" "Vote for Expulsion;" "Sex offender of child loses second appeal;" "Nursing home backers protest budget cuts;" "Two perish in blizzard;" "Mother charged with manslaughter in child's death;" "Roof collapses at animal shelter;" "Holiday program falling short."
Peace on earth?
Through the maze of sad and discouraging news, don't miss the overwhelming good that surrounds us.
A few more Journal headlines in December: "Lights brighten hearts of military family;" "Cookies, donor prizes go for valuable backpacks;" "Woman rugby players raise funds through local service;" "Missionaries celebrate Haitian school opening;" "Art supplies donated;" "2011 Stop Drug Poster contest winners honored;" "College volunteers 'here to help' the elderly;" "Local OB/GYN draws international appeal;" "Unemployment rates down from last year;" "Innovative company creates new technology;" "Optimist Club sponsors student-essay contest;" "Fire department spreads battery power;" "Sailing through economic turmoil, company opens new doors;" "'Trees of Love' lit Dec 8;" "October Students of the Month noted for achievements;" "RFHS first term honor roll students noted;" "Junior Girl Scouts go for 'Bronze;'" "Care Box delivered;" "Credit his upbringing: Officer had right stuff."
