Washington High Improvements Planned

The Washington School Board has approved major upgrades to the athletic field and track at the high school. The action was taken last night to move forward with the installation of artificial turf and the construction of a new track. The project will also include new lights, a sidewalk and fence around the entire stadium, new visitors bleachers and improved handicapped accessibility. Total price tag is two-point-three-two-five-million dollars. Work is scheduled to begin next week. Athletic Director Bill Deckelman says it will be tight, but they hope to have the project finished by the first home football game September 6th.

"No Justice, No Peace"

Certainly, there was no peace on the streets of Ferguson on the night the grand jury announced it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown.

The images of a city burning were disturbing, saddening and sickening. Every business torched leaves in its wake families who have lost their source of income, and a community that will find it that much harder to rebuild.
