Relay needs our support to succeed

This week marked the official beginning of the Relay For Life in Ennis this year.

Big decisions take time

For a community that has been a dormant and quiet — waiting for its next ride — the changing of the guard is an inevitable spur in the flank.

Rate hike is burdensome

The National Newspaper Association came out a few days ago joining a coalition of postal workers and suppliers in opposition of a Dec. 24 decision by the Postal Regulatory Commission to raise the postal rate by 6 percent. We’re with them, for a number of reasons. Click here to sign up for our E-Edition and […]

One of the biggest complaints we hear about Ennis is about things to do.

Coordinator post could yield benefits

We can see the appeal for reasoned action in the Greater Ennis Development Alliance’s request for the city of Ennis to hire a downtown development coordinator.

Principal serves well

Congratulations are due to Principal Ryan McCabe as this year’s winner of the Lovie Boyd Community Service Award from Unity in the Community.

Taking care of our people

It’s alarming to see a continued lethargy in enacting meaningful industrial regulations as news reports of more accidents and more problems become more commonplace. Industry critics have taken the ample opportunities that have presented themselves since the most recent industrial disaster in West Virginia poisoned the water supply for more than a quarter million West […]

It’s one thing to criticize. It’s quite another to take part in making changes for the better.

Become a donor, give the gift of life

Giving blood is a way to help people that many of us could afford to take more often.

Water use is a key issue

Browsing the news — a favorite diversion for many a journalist on their off days — can be terrifying, because it can remind us of our forgotten vulnerabilities.

Give A Kid A Chance truly remarkable

Locally, we’ve also had to watch as a number of avenues for charitable giving have been strained by […]

But in the end, I believe most civic leaders and city residents who were focused on what was going on supported the final draft of the ordinance passed in early December. […]

Good words for the city to consider

The perspective of an outside expert is useful.

Big tax plans aren’t feasible

We’re two months out from the primary election here in Ellis County, which for most intents and purposes might as well be Election Day. I’m busy trying to round up campaign announcement from various contenders and incumbents in the county, so I spend a lot of time reading about their goals, their political values, and […]

Find evidence on temblors

The cause of the earthquakes that have sent areas of North and Central Texas trembling is a concern for all of us.

Establishing relationships super’s 1st job

Ennis put forward a good amount of effort to show John Chapman, the new head of our school district, a real Ennis welcome Monday night.

Superintendent brings promise of new energy
