  • Counseling service opens office in Marion

    County residents ordered by the court to attend drug or alcohol counseling, and parents whose children are at risk of being — or have already been — taken into foster care often have to make such long drives to get to the counseling sessions they require that they are defeated by the travel time involved. That’s what the people who recently opened The Restoration Center are hoping to change. Joy Waldbauer and Carl Taylor, Restoration Center CEO, talked to county commissioners Monday about why they have opened an office in Marion.

  • When reason takes a furlough

    Forget, for a moment, whether our country is or isn’t being flooded by illegal immigrants. What’s flooded our headlines in recent weeks is how 800,000 federal workers were furloughed for 35 days.
