    The (Freeport) Journal-Standard on investing in education early and seeing the rewards (Feb. 10):

  • Luna board erred

    There’s an old saying that actions speak louder than words, and that’s certainly the case with Luna Community College’s Board of Trustees.

    That’s why it’s unfortunate that the House Transportation and Public Works Committee voted 5-2 last week to table a bill that would have imposed stiffer penalties on repeat DWI offenders, a move that one of the bill’s sponsors says effectively killed the legislation.
