Ennis has made a man out of me.

Panel forum a chance to learn more

The Ennis Chamber of Commerce Partners in Education Committee’s second Ennis ISD school board candidate forum is truly an important effort.

This time four years ago I was back home in Louisiana spending a month with my little mama, Jeanette Holland Morrison.

Center a need, so is a plan

There’s been some open discussion recently about the possibility of a Cultural Arts Center being built in Ennis.

Business can build success with tourists

If any of us needed hard proof of what a large influx of visitors can do for our community during the spring festival season, a story about the business done by Doc’s Beverage over Bluebonnet Festival weekend is that proof.

A year without progress

This week is replete with bad anniversaries but few as fresh and meaningful as the one year anniversary of the West explosion.

Networking can make all the difference

The second Ennis High School job fair, set May 1, is a valuable and important outlet for the group of students headed to the workforce after graduation.

Fest success built on effort

Changes to this year’s Bluebonnet Festival in downtown were wonderful.

Website updates are needed

Good steps in the direction of creating more interest in Ennis are easy to like.

Festival weekend is upon us, and it’s our moment to enjoy the sights and sounds of what our amazing community can offer to us in April.

All stories not created equal

The other day a woman came in to talk to me about Bigfoot.

Foundation will require ongoing aid

As it is with a whole group of the burgeoning developments within our community in the last year, the Ennis ISD Educational Foundation will need continued vocal, passionate support from stakeholders and supporters to keep momentum and stay relevant.

Public input paramount for city plan

The comprehensive plan proposed by Chuck Ewings makes good sense, and we’re glad to see the Ennis City Commission agrees with our assessment.

The good memories of high school, for many of us, include our recollections of our introduction to formal parties in our teenage years at prom.

Make effort to stop child abuse

Child abuse is still considered one of the hidden crimes America brings upon itself each year.

Mental health concerns growing

Whenever I attend a sheriff’s training conference or similar event, it has not been unusual for the topic of mental health issues in the jail to be discussed. And if it was not discussed formally in the classroom, it was certainly discussed informally by the sheriffs.

Take steps to prepare for storms

Gray skies have lingered over the past few days, reminding us that along with the warmth that has kissed Ennis we have entered April comes the threat of spring storms.

Homes project a worthy effort

Several weeks ago I was asked to be a part of the Home of the Brave Foundation, and I gladly accepted.

Students set example with dedication
