If your mornings are at all similar to mine, they look a little something like this: ensuring the kids wake up on time, getting dressed, making sure the dog gets fed and let out, making breakfast and lunch (bonus points if it's nutritional), convincing the 3-year-old to actually eat breakfast, and then brushing, braiding, combing and curling hair, locating homework, back-packs, socks and shoes, then sending kids off with a prayer and a peck on the cheek -- all before 8:15 a.m.

Editor, State Rep. Valencia Stovall, D-Lake City, was "right on" concerning the need for the Opportunity School District legislation (Coastal Courier op-ed, Wednesday, May 6). If you look who is objecting to this legislation, I am sure you will find the self-serving teachers' union. They object to anything that will improve our children's education if it means they will not control the schools and add to their coffers.

I teach a Sunday-school class at our church, and we are currently studying the book of Proverbs. The other week, we were studying the first half of Proverbs 6, perhaps one of the most practical sections of the entire book. And that's saying something, because Proverbs is extremely practical by nature.

Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect the following correction, which will appear in Wednesday's print edition. Liberty Regional Medical Center communications officer Rene Harwell confirmed Friday that Scott Kroell had retired as the hospital's CEO after 21 years and said Donna Cochrane, the hospital's chief nursing officer, had been named interim CEO. An article that appeared in Sunday's edition incorrectly characterized her response to the Coastal Courier, making it appear - inaccurately - that she had evaded the reporter's question. The Courier regrets the error.
