Speak Out

The Marshall Democrat-News invites readers to share their views and questions on any issue. Open discussions are often useful and enlightening. Criticism is acceptable as an important part of public conversations, but we expect everyone to treat others with respect. Experience suggests it is best not to post comments while angry. We reserve the right to delete comments that we think include personal attacks, are disrespectful, threatening, obscene or in other ways objectionable. Anyone who repeatedly violates this policy will be banned from participating in our forums.

I am not very pleased that the Public Library was closed for Black Friday! The sign on the door actually said that. I have no problem with it being closed as an extension of Thanksgiving; but to actually announce closure for a symbol of greed is amazing. Perhaps they will rethink that for next year.

Marshall fire chief offers Thanksgiving safety tips
Marshall Fire Chief Tony Day gives some helpful tips to keep safe and prevent fires in the kitchen Wednesday, Nov. 18, in the fire department's safety trailer. With the holidays around the corner and large meals being prepared, it's extra important to keep kitchen safety in mind. Also, when using a deep fryer, do not cook over any wooden surface and be careful not to fill the fryer so full that the hot grease overflows when you drop in the turkey.
