  • God’s mercy shows up in a variety of forms

    I’m sitting on a couch in Hershey, Penn., with my sister, my daughter and my granddaughter, watching the Food Network and thinking, “How weird is this?”

    We’re here on a partial family vacation since only part of our family is here. My sister flew in from California and my daughter, granddaughter and son-in-law drove up from Virginia. My husband and I flew up from Florida.

    We chose to meet in Hershey because we like chocolate. Also, the children of my husband’s late best friend live nearby and they’ve become family to us.

  • No desk, no problem

    As you walk into Mrs. Crystal Darnell’s brightly colored classroom, you will quickly notice that something is amiss.

    There are no desks.

    Well that’s not entirely accurate, there are about three traditional school desks scattered around the classroom. The rest is a hodge-podge of couches, stools, cushioned crates and stylish Adirondack chairs surrounded by plush carpets and pillows.

  • High school, kindergarten enrollment declines

    School traffic might be a little easier to navigate this year if early attendance numbers are any indication.

    According to information provided by school officials, early enrollment figures show a slight drop in enrollment for Anderson County schools.

    The most significant decrease in enrollment numbers is within kindergarten and high school, said Superintendent Sheila Mitchell.

    Kindergarten enrollment is down by 39 students and the high school is short by 37 students compared to last year’s attendance records.

  • Math teacher offers students education abroad

    Jennings Barnett, a math teacher at the Christian Academy of Lawrencebug, said sometimes the best education a person can get is outside the confines of a classroom. It is for this reason he has designed an educational trip to Costa Rica that is open to all students in Anderson County.

    The trip will consist of eight days and six nights and the group will travel around central Costa Rica taking in the sights and guided tours with experienced guides.
