Losing a loved one

Before October 13, 2016 I thought I knew grief. Leading up to that date I thought it just simply meant mourning a loved one that you have lost. Today I know it means a lot more than that. Grief to me now is known as loss, pain, suffering, a word that leaves a gaping hole in your heart.

Count your blessings, Thanksgiving reflections

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays for many reasons. It's a time to spend with family, eat great food, and reflect on what you are thankful for. While most families gather around the table with their meal, they go through the motions of sharing how thankful they are for one another. Unfortunately, many do just that…go through the motions. This year, when sharing what I am most thankful for, I will include my family and a forgiving God, but I will also include the time I was allowed with my mother.

On Saturday Nov. 5, the Midway School Alumni presented a display case of the history of Midway School from 1923-1965. Harvey S.
