Would you favor naming the athletic complex around Baldwin High School after former coach Merle Venable?

Merle, simply put, is a man of integrity! The world could use a lot more men, women, and children just like him!

Student arrested for bringing loaded gun to BHS

Unfortunately folks...Baldwin is growing by leaps and bounds. The administration defused the situation yesterday, but what will happen next time? We keep building schools that have every bell and whistle you could imagine, but no metal detectors? Why is that? So our schools will be more appealing to people moving to the area?

I would love to believe that Baldwin is the good ol' boy town a lot of us have known and loved for years...but it isn't. There are families moving into our community from all over the place. We have to accept the fact that the days of good ol' small town bliss are over.

Too many students are allowed to bully and antagonize other students without any REAL discipline. It has been that way in Baldwin for years. The victims are told, by staff and administration, that the other person "didn't really mean anything by it"..."It'll be OK"..."We'll notify their parents"...blah...blah...blah! This really must change!

I am tickled pink that no one was hurt yesterday...but I do worry about 'next time'...and I think we all know from watching the news, etc. that there probably will be a next time. THAT TERRIFIES ME!
