Save the F-4

To the Editor: For one to take away a masterpiece that makes a specific place stand out, would make that place non-interesting. In 1946, a group of locals met to establish a junior college in Navarro County. An election was held and Navarro College was created. Recently being an Air Force base, the committee thought it would be a good idea to keep the air plane on campus because at the time 238 members of the first student body was returning veterans from World War II.

Being recently informed about the F-4 being moved to another city, I was highly disappointed. As a freshman at Navarro College, when I first pulled up to the school, I seen this big airplane and wanted to know the background on it. Becoming more educated on this, I realized that this made Navarro College what it is today.

Taking this airplane away from the school, takes the excitement out of college, because every college has their own thing that makes their school special. Even though we have a good educational program, right along with great extra-curriculum activities, taking away something that helped start the school wouldn’t be very beneficial to us.

This magnificent masterpiece creates wonders in college students mind, and educates them on the history of the school. To take this away could probably make the history of Navarro College hard to identify.

Supporting teachers

To the Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chris Higgs of Colortyme of Corsicana for helping the teachers of Corsicana High School.  

Over the summer, the refrigerator that we use in one of the lounges here at CHS stopped working. Since it was 40 years old, the cost of repairing it was not a good expenditure of money.

I contacted Mr. Higgs and asked if Colortyme would be able to allow us to obtain one of their used refrigerators. He said he would see what he could do.  

This week, Mr. Higgs and a couple of his staff came to CHS and delivered a new refrigerator and not a used one as we had discussed. Once again, a big thank you to Colortyme for supporting the teachers here at CHS.
