Practical nursing cut will close door on jobs

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Lawrence County is losing a gem with the loss of the practical nursing program.

Open any paper across the country and good-paying technical nursing jobs with benefits are in demand and growing even in the worst economy.

Getting rid of the technical training people need to get well-paying jobs in our community should be at the very least a last resort.

A lot of these students are single moms trying to make a better life.

I’m glad that the Lawrence County Career and Technical Center board has requested an audit, and I urge it to find a solution for continued education of the next generations in Lawrence County.

Summer is a perfect time for a good read. Where's your favorite place to spend off time with your nose in a book?

Relaxing on the couch
On a bench in the park
By the pool
At the closest beach
I don't have time to read
