    Juniors Kirsten Lyvers and Elijah Miller wondered out loud how much more they could get changed at Anderson County High School if they could plan petitions during every class period, instead of just second block.
    “We’d get a lot done,” Lyvers said.
    It was during their second hour “planning period” that Lyvers and Miller, along with fellow junior Alex Isaac, began work on a petition to change specific, and what they deemed unfair, aspects of the school’s dress code.
    Change came much more quickly than Lyvers anticipated.

  • Hoping Steve Jobs accepted Jesus Christ

    Computer whiz Steve Jobs was a pioneer, a business tycoon, a visionary, a leader and a global influence.
    He was also reportedly a Buddhist.
    I certainly hope Mr. Jobs accepted Christ as his personal savior. If not, according to what Jesus Christ said, he is not in heaven, which is all the more reason for us to make sure our friends and family have truly accepted Jesus
    Christ as savior, lord and God because “false religion” takes us to hell.
