ENTERS PLEA: Tim Ballard, who’s been suspended as principal of the Abundant Life high school in Sherwood, pleaded not guilty in Sherwood Municipal Court this week to sexually assaulting a former student. His case will go to circuit court. The case drew wide attention because officials of the school, sponsored by a Baptist church, told police they’d had previous complaints of misconduct by Ballard as far back as 11 years ago. It’s unclear if church or school officials reported or acted on past complaints.
When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
