Libraries still assets
Posted: January 20, 2016 - 12:00 am

Libraries are an important part of their respective communities. Before the rise of the Internet, they acted as a place where community members would visit when researching events or just looking for something new to read.

It’s always best to own your mistakes
Posted: December 31, 2015 - 12:00 am

The only thing more despicable than a person claiming to be a military service member in a news story is a news outlet not owning up to the mistake it made reporting it. That’s just what happened in East Texas, when TV station KLTV aired a news package about a “soldier” who was spending Christmas with her children for the first time in three years.
