  • Be aware of suicidal behavior

    According to a report released by the Surgeon General two years ago a young person commits suicide every two hours in our country. In fact, suicide now claims the lives of more adolescents than any disease or natural cause.  It should also be noted that adolescents commit suicide at a higher rate than that of any other age group.  What is even more alarming is there are even more suicidal attempts and gestures than there are actual completed suicides.

  • Readers sound off on Danny May appeal

    I am writing about the appellate court that granted the (Danny) May appeal. I think you did a great job in your story. I hope that everyone who read that article will see that there are a lot of people that are not getting a fair deal. And thank God someone from the Court of Appeals took time to research May’s court record, and found in his favor. Glory be to God in the highest. I hope that everyone will respond to that article.

  • Readers sound off on Danny May appeal

    I am writing in regard to the May appeal story because I am one of the few people who have seen the records that exist which contain certain statements made by the state that are in my opinion very wrong for a person of the court to make when they are involved in the case that decides the fate of that person.
