7 things I’d do if I wanted to keep poor people poor

Posted by | September 6, 2018 8:14 am

Language of Liberty – By By Brian Balfour

If I wanted to keep poor people poor, there are several government policies I would favor. Let’s count them down.

After loading up, Sammie and I accompanied Stephen, Whitney, and the boys to their new home in suburban Mount Juliet.

As we began to unload the truck, Grayson and Anderson pitched in like Trojans. They had helped, … Read More


Eller pushes for more autism awareness

Posted by | September 6, 2018 8:09 am

Stories like the one from Dickson County in which a father was arrested for allegedly killing his 5-year-old autistic son are the subject of nightmares for parents who have children with special needs.

It is because of this story and others like it that Lisa Eller, who has a non-verbal autistic son, thought there should be more awareness brought to autism.

Eller stated her history of working with special needs children and adults aided her in recognizing the signs that her son could have autism at a young age. She stated he was already in therapy before he got an official diagnosis, and she knew he needed speech … Read More
