A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >>
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Under Gov. John Kasich's
new school budget proposal, Findlay is the only school district in Hancock
County set to see any increase in state aid over the next two years.
Although some residents
don't think this is necessarily fair, McComb Superintendent Mike Lamb said the
news didn't come as a surprise to him.
"[I'm] still optimistic,"
he said. "It could have been much worse. We could have received some
significant cuts like we have the past two years."
In anticipation of no
increases, McComb closed a middle school building over the past year. Now
grades K-12 are housed in one building. They save money by not heating or
staffing two buildings, and Lamb said they have enough room.
Some residents of the
village are more frustrated with the proposed budget.
"Our children here in the
McComb area and other rural areas…have a right to just as much funding for
their education as the larger schools do," said Teresa Andrews, owner of a
local thrift store.
