Dear Editor, The Danville City Commission and the Boyle County Fiscal Court have proclaimed this October National Arts and Humanities Month. During this month, I think it's important that we take the time to recognize the wide range of cultural opportunities that the Community Arts Center provides to this community. As a Centre student, I appreciate being able to ride my bike downtown and peruse several galleries of regional artwork for free. The center also provides a wide variety of arts education at little or no cost - offering classes for all ages in drawing, painting, musical instruction and dance.

Dear Editor: The youngest of our three children will "graduate" this week from Mary G. Hogsett Elementary School and move on to Bate Middle School. We want the teachers, administration and staff of Hogsett to know how much we've appreciated the education, guidance, opportunities and love given to our children over the years. Our family has been associated with Hogsett Elementary since our oldest daughter, now finishing her junior year in high school, was in preschool. The staff at Hogsett has always had high expectations for all of their students, and they create a safe and caring environment for students to succeed.
