One construction project at Howard College is nearing completion, while preparations are under way for another.
People can be forgiven if they believe the college has become a permanent construction zone, what with all the work that's been ongoing the past few years. And that impression will continue, at least for the next few months.

â€¢ CHARLIE JAKE TURNER JR., 32, of 4215 Hamilton, was arrested Monday on a charge of public intoxication.
