    Many students at WTI will be successfully completing their Career and Technical Education (CTE) program in a few weeks. From reading previous columns, you know the population we serve is primarily adult students, and as you can imagine, many of our students have overcome many obstacles to be successful — obstacles such as lack of adequate transportation, parenthood or part- or full-time employment. So completing a rigorous CTE program is truly success No. 1. 

  • When I was a new Christian, I discovered a portrait of Jesus called the “Laughing Christ” at a Christian book store.

  • Sometimes we learn life lessons in the strangest ways. Living in Ocala, with its diverse population of minorities, has opened my eyes to the religion and culture of many of my neighbors.

    In today’s hectic world, we unfortunately grow up to believe that less is not more, bigger is better. So we push ourselves to do and to achieve the maximum results in our lives. This stress causes blood chemistry changes that increases abdominal fat, raises blood pressure, affects our hormone levels and hastens the signs of aging. Muscles tighten and tension headaches may result. 

    These are just a few of the harmful effects of stress.
