It's not my impression that FCHS and the new college will be tied together in any way, except that the new college may temporarily use a room/rooms in the FCHS building. High school is high school and college is college, and I don't think there will be any mixing of curriculum.

As much as I respect and admire Dr. Morthland ,it scares the hell outta me to think he would be involved with S.W. in any way,other than praying for him. Thats a true wolf in sheeps clothing,but just my opinion.

I read the TV3 story an I took a look at the new college web site and found both informative. However. What with my firmly supporting separation of church an state along with my being agnostic prevents me from being a supporter of the docs scholarly efforts. Add to that I tire of blogging about it, and so. I bid you all adieu

I was at the schoolboard meeting when Dr. Morthland gave his well thought-out presentation regarding the plans for this collegiate institution. I was very impressed.
Tech Geek was correct in reporting that the plans are to only share some of the highschools classroom space TEMPORARILY as a supportive tool in order to get things up and running.
Just give this a chance. Don't say "no" until you have had an opportunity to review the facts.

This presents an excellent occasion for expansion and economic development to our community. We should applaud his efforts.

Scot is not a politician,he is a wannabe politian.My wife and I are happy that the college is coming to town and we respect Dr.Morthland to the fullest.I pray that he soons realizes that he (SW) is only out for the good of himself and himself only.
Not true

Scott Helps many people with nothing expected in return. He has helped people who rob and steal from him, only to help them again. He wants Morthland to succeed, and nothing else. PERIOD

<quoted text> I agree with you. There's a church on every corner in town we don't need another at the HS. On a Sunday you have to dodge all the cars and trucks lined up on both sides on the street and also parked next to fire hydrants and stop signs. What's up with that shit? Why don't the cops enforce the damn laws so if you don't want to go to church you shouldn't have to dodge vehicles illegally parked? Some, not all, of these churchgoers act like they own the town!
I would rather dogde people's cars parked and leaving church 1 day a week than the people leavin and parkin at the Casino, Elks Club, Moose, Kelley's and so on the rest of the week all hours of the day. West Frankfort is amazingly tollerant of DRUNK DRIVERS.

Maybe you should come out of your glass house and join the drunken community then. Either that or go to church and quit your preaching on here. Sorry to say if it wasn't for the bars and their revenue West Frankfort would be in alot more trouble than it is in. I bet some of your friends are regulars at some of the bars in town. Heck you may be too!

And how the hell can a guy offer Bible College courses at a public high school? What ever happened to separation of church and state? Somebody must be getting paid under the table here.

It is not a part of the High School! They are only using the High School class rooms ,AFTER HOURS, to get started! They plan on building their own school one of these days when they have the funds.

Well, as someone who has lost a friend and a family member to drunk drivers, I really don't give a flip how much revenue it brings in. Drunk drivers who kill people should be executed, and the bar that served them should be closed and the owner locked up for life.

Sorry, I know that was off topic, but it makes my blood boil when people defend drunks. Oh, and I'll preach on here as I wish.

I would love to see a Christian College come to Frankfort. I would really like to teach all those young men a thing or two that I have learned.
