Talking it over: Less tricks and more treats
I hope that this Halloween will see lots of treats for our youngsters and a lot less tricks. When I was younger it was often the other way around but I am glad that the times have changed. There are some very good things planned to keep our young people busy on Halloween, which might...

Literature in a Hurry: New policy on student clubs needed more time for scrutiny
Talking about process can be boring, but I'm afraid it's important this week as we as a community consider the Morris Area School Board's decision to recognize the Gay Straight Alliance as an official student organization. I won't go through the details of Monday's school board...

Talking it Over: The price we pay for good health
We pay a high price to stay healthy. The cost of medical care and prescription drugs is steadily increasing and almost getting to the point where many people simply can't afford to go to the doctor or take prescribed medication. Even with insurance or medicare, many Americans face...

Jacob Just: Student representation on school boards
Washington DC, as we all know, houses the seat of power for the United States. Little do most people know that an area of 68.3 square miles boasts a population of approximately 659,000 people, thus making it more populous than Wyoming or Vermont. Yet, despite its small size and...

Michael Lackey: What is the difference between Fox News commentators and university professors?
As a Fox News junkie, I am frequently amused by the network's representation of university professors, who supposedly devote their lives to converting unwitting students into liberal socialist communists. So that there is no confusion about professors, let me clarify the record. Fox...

Troy Goodnough: What do Exxon and Pope Francis have in common?
Last week, the Morris Sun Tribune reported data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that we just had the hottest August on record during the past 135 years of accurate record-keeping. If you have been following global temperatures for over a decade now,...

Talking It Over: Fall is in the air
Even though it is not ‘officially’ fall yet, you can feel it in the air and see it all around. It is such a beautiful yet busy time of year. In some ways, fall feels like a culmination of a lot of work during the other seasons. Winter is a planning and revigorating time, spring...

The excitement is building for the start of another school year. Throughout the summer our staff has been busy working and preparing for welcoming our students back to school. We would like to extend a special welcome to our new students who will be with us for the first time this...

Talking It Over: Teachers have a huge task
Over the last few weeks and through the start of school, I will be running several articles featuring the new teachers at the Hancock School. I have at least nine to interview so it will take a while to get them all in. I enjoy meeting the new teachers and sharing a bit of their...

Literature in a Hurry: Seeing drug court in action
One of the hardest things about reporting is deciding what you have to leave out of a story. The feature story for this week's paper is about the Eighth Judicial District's drug court, which has been operating for just over a year. By nearly every measure, drug court is a program...

Talking it Over: Things you should never say out loud
The older a person gets, the more you realize — or learn through experience — to be careful what you say. There are some things that should never be said out loud especially if they are hurtful to others. However, there are also some things that should never be said just...

Talking it Over: Religion and school
The first day of school is not too far away. I have seen a lot of postings and articles on social media about keeping religion in our schools. There seems to be a movement to try to keep God out of our school systems. Many people, including myself, feel that it is important to keep...

Sue's Views: Making an effort makes it worth it to shop local
The last few weeks have been wildly busy in Morris and it is the stuff that makes small town living worthwhile. Helping Eul's Hardware Hank celebrate 85 years in business with a picnic lunch and cake is just about the best way to spend part of a Saturday afternoon that I know of. A...

Talking it Over: Pictures can speak volumes
A life can be defined through pictures. Quite often for special events we use pictures to chronicle a life. We start with pictures of a person or couple when they are very young and move through the years with pictures that show some of the highlights of their life. Those pictures...

Literature in a Hurry: Weekends at home and weekends away
This weekend, I'm getting out of town. By 5:30 on Friday afternoon, I'll be on the road with friends, heading to my parent's cabin in Wisconsin for a long weekend. It's my first weekend at the lake this year and I couldn't be more excited. I told a friend in the audience at...
