Looking Back on 2018

In spite of a highly polarized and partisan political environment in 2018, Congress actually had a surprisingly productive year.

On the heels of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed into law by the president, 2018 started strong and good news continued to be delivered throughout the year. Since this historic tax reform was enacted, the positive impact has been felt nationwide in the form of rising wages, low unemployment and new jobs. But beyond celebrating the results of tax reform, lawmakers in both chambers of Congress advanced several new pieces of legislation to ensure Americans are better off.

End of 2018 Was Wild In Walters And Cotton County

Lets start with Christmas Eve, December 24th, in the wee hours of the morning when Sheriff Simpson was called to help Walters PD with a stolen car that resulted in a high speed chase. Sheriff Simpson ended up losing control of the vehicle which resulted in him having a wreck. He was transported to Comanche Memorial Hospital, then air flighted to a Oklahoma City hospital where he had surgery on an eye. He is home and doing well.

The end of the week (after Christmas) brought Walters PD to serving a search warrant on a home on W. Nevada where meth was believed to be. A day or two later a fight broke out on E. Oklahoma that resulted in one man being arrested for stabbing the other. Walters PD was able to pull the injured man out through a back window to get him to safety.

Among all this was the flood that came down with all the rain we have had.

Why Vocational Education is Critical for Many Young People

EDUCATION

(StatePoint) In this hightech era where a college degree is positioned as a necessity for success, vocational education is often overlooked. But experts say that a vocational education provides the right experience for many jobs that are currently vacant.

Indeed, there are 30 million jobs nationwide that don’t require a Bachelor’s Degree that pay an average of $55,000 annually, according to the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce.

Whether it’s a student that doesn’t fit the traditional high school-to-college path or someone who is interested in mechanics, a vocational education can prepare that individual for a well-paying, real-world career right out of high school. Indeed, many students learn from industry professionals and participate in internships and other unique programs that serve as a springboard to careers after they graduate.

The 2018 Christmas program was held Sunday, December 16, in the school auditorium.  As in the past the Vocal Music Department in cooperation with the churches in the community sponsored the event.  The audience was treated to beautiful music and celebrated the birth of Christ presented by church choirs, ensembles, solos, with special performances by the WES Singing Sensation and MS School Vocal Music and HS Varsity Choir.   

Members of the Ministerial Alliance read the scriptures relating to the coming of the baby Jesus and the Christmas story. Ministers that shared the message were: Paul Metcalfe, Dr. Jack Jacob, Roger Noland, Christy Clark and Brantley Tillery.  FBC Youth Director - Cody Pennington and St. Patrick’s Catholic Church liturgist - Calli Ray also shared the scriptures.
