By Margaret Salvaggio

With forty-six seniors making their entrance into the gymnasium in their caps and gowns made the whole idea of graduation surreal. The students walked in line to the traditional Pomp and Circumstance with their heads held high and huge smiles on their faces. For everything they have worked hard for was fixing to come true.

The Land of the Free

By Pastor Becky Hoffpauir

Before we can enter into freedom, we must decide if we want to go where God is taking us. In order to get milk and honey, the Israelites had to walk away from the place where Pharaoh ruled. Just like Israel, we too need to be delivered from a person (Satan) and a place. Galatians 5:1,“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” In studying a certain Bible Study, I read a story from the author that was very interesting. She had taken her small children to a circus. They didn’t really care much about anything but the elephants.

Remembering D-Day at Camp Hearne

When Allied operations stormed the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944 (D-Day), General Eisenhower never had a second plan nor did he expect anything less than victory. Field Marshall Rommel was defending France’s coastline and knew “for the Allies and Germany it will be the longest day.” D-Day loss of human lives on both sides was very high. We honor those service men and women and the civilian lives lost during this critical operation by remembering this day with a special WWII Living History event.

Hearne ISD under TEA scrutiny

By Melissa Freeman

In a six-hour meeting closing in the early morning hours, the Hearne ISD Board of Trustees seated a new member, completely reorganized, and reflected its obvious divisions, despite calls for unity. During the course of the meeting, the District’s attorney, Darren Gibson, announced the Texas Education Agency inspectors would be coming the following day, Tuesday, May 24, to investigate charges of nepotism and other possibly illegal practices. The result, said Gibson, could be the loss of the District’s accreditation. “This is serious,” said Gibson.
