A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton

As we fly through this school year, I would like to take a few minutes to update you on a new program within our school system. This program deals with the safety and security of our students which we take very seriously.

The safety and security of our students is an issue in which we spend a lot of time and resources. There are many aspects to student safety; these include access to our buildings, video cameras and the overall awareness of our students and faculty. I feel that our best “tool” in keeping our students safe and secure is the awareness of our students. They see and hear so much.

Water line breaks continued to plague the City last week, but have tapered off in current days. This break, on the north side of town, was seven feet deep. Thanks to all the City employees who have worked very hard to keep our water flowing. If you haven’t signed up for the text alerts from the City, you can do that at the City’s website.

What do you do when it is pouring rain outside?

What do you do when it is pouring rain outside? If you are Cordell Police Officer Trevor Stewart you send in the Cordell Elementary students who are the crossing guards and take on the duty yourself! Stewart spent Monday and Tuesday mornings making sure all Cordell students got inside safely. A regular at the elementary in the morning, reports say he is always happy, smiling, and makes a point to greet every child. Thank you, Officer Stewart!

Home Country

By Slim Randles

Old Jasper Blankenship bought a deer license again this year, just as he’s done every year since Eisenhower was President. He sticks nickels and dimes in a jar all year long and smiles each time he contributes. By Fall, he’s saved up enough for a deer tag.

Jasper lives full-time out at the diggin’s with his dog, Arthur, of course, so he has only to walk about 100 feet from the cabin to do his hunting. That’s one of the marvels of it.
