“Patience in archery is key, and it was something I struggled with for a very long time,” senior Hannah Rogan, captain of the White County High School archery team, said. “Without it, it is so easy to fall apart in seconds.”

Patience and the ability to keep a smile on her face and laughter in her heart are proving to be important skills for Rogan as her senior year is nothing like she would have imagined when she began shooting as a sixth grader.

“I started shooting in sixth grade at a 4-H camp and instantly loved it,” Rogan said. “They started coaching me themselves … CONTINUED


Overachieving? Or being safe and demonstrating wisdom?

Playl’s Ponderings – By Steve Playl

Only a few weeks have passed, but it feels like it happened a long time ago… that’s sorta the way time is in this crazy COVID-19 world. Some days seem to take years to pass. On the other hand, some things that happened months ago feel like yesterday. Is it because the coronavirus has forced us to feel safer at home, or is it a simple matter of getting older?

Anyway, Sammie and I were driving through beautiful flurries of snow on I-81 and I-77, headed for Ghent, West Virginia. Occasionally we drove through cuts in the mountains where some of the … CONTINUED


Are there angels among us?

By Topher Wiles

She had tears glistening in her eyes, no doubt beginning from the deep pits of worry and concern that have wracked much of our community in the last few weeks.  In that one moment, she made a statement that made my hair stand up and made my brain think hard about a Bible topic.  She said, “You guys are angels.”

What began with a shortage of toilet paper (I’m still trying to figure that one out) and progressed to electrical outages caused by 95 mph wind damage (and a tornado) probably had an effect on her while we stood on her doorstep (6 feet apart … CONTINUED


Homeschooling is changing my child – in a good way

Language of Liberty – By Shawnna Morris

The email from my son’s teacher hit us like a ton of bricks. “The students will not be returning from spring break,” it read. “School will be closed until April 17. In the meantime, the children will receive their lessons online.” Like many parents in the first days of social isolation, we were alarmed.

We were encouraged, though, to find out that the technology for remote learning has never been better or more accessible. Google Classroom, Khan Academy, Duo Lingo, Zoom video conferencing, and other online learning tools have been used by homeschoolers and unschoolers for years. My son has used … CONTINUED


Exchange student leaves too soon because of COVID-19

“January of last year my sister forwarded an email to me that would forever change our lives,” Ashley Brandes said, as she opened up about experiencing the past year as a host family for an exchange student from Sweden.

A local coordinator with a foreign exchange student organization had emailed the Interact Club sponsor, Brandes’s sister, at White County High School, looking for homes in which to place exchange students.

“My sister immediately thought my family would be a good fit for this program,” Brandes said. “I read the email and felt such a strong pull to participate.”

Brandes and her husband, who agreed that … CONTINUED


It’s not business as usual

It might not be “business as usual” right now, but many organizations around White County are finding ways to keep activities available for the community.

White County Library is offering curbside service, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday-Saturday.

“You can call us and ask for the books you want, and we will bring them out to your car,” Dana Gorter, children’s librarian, said. “We are automatically renewing materials that are coming due during our closure.”

In addition, the library is offering Wi-Fi that can be accessed from their parking lot. Gorter said the network is FREEROAM, and no password is required. In addition, printing services are available … CONTINUED


Expositor delivery

Posted by | April 10, 2020 11:23 am

Because of the mandated rules that apply during the COVID-19 pandemic, the post office will be bringing in about half of the employees/carriers at one time. This guideline will likely cause The Expositor to be delivered one day late to some of our subscribers. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time.


White Oak Flat Road blocked because of landslide

By Rachel Auberger

Residents on White Oak Flatt Road are having to drive into Putnam County and back around to get to Sparta since their road has been slowly sliding down the side of the mountain for almost two months.

“The road is gone,” Clay Parker, White County Highway superintendent, said. “It is more than 15 feet below where it used to sit.”

Parker, whose crew works four 10-hour days, said he received a phone call around 6 a.m., on a Thursday, more than six weeks ago, stating there was a spot of White Oak Flatt Road that had sunk. He said he sent coal up the mountain … CONTINUED
