    Fortunately, the majority of our public school teachers are dedicated to their profession. They enter the classroom each day with the intent to do their level best to have a positive impact on their students.

    It appears the majority of bar owners and owners of restaurants that serve alcohol in and around Greenwood are OK with recently signed legislation that allows gun owners who also possess state-issued concealed weapons permits to carry their weapons inside their establishments.
