Noted and passed - Feb. 17, 2014

• We note with sadness the recent death of Bill Few of Liberty Hill, one of the great high school football coaches in this state. Few, who attended Clemson on an athletic scholarship, was a no-nonsense coach who instilled discipline in his players and compiled, over his 26-year career, a 221-68-3 record, including three state championships. His last few years on the field were spent at North Central High School.

‘Running schools more like a business’

In the middle of more than $30 million in budget cuts our school district had to make during the economic downturn -- cuts that are not yet close to being fully restored -- a number of politicians and citizens told me that schools needed to be "run more like a business." That's a line I hear a lot. It's a good sound bite, especially from politicians and others who don't want to acknowledge the consequences of poor long-term decisions. But it doesn't reflect reality.

Russian roulette

The game of Russian roulette consists of taking a loaded gun, aiming it at your head, firing it, and hoping the chamber will be empty. After I completed my Ph.D., I still lacked wisdom. When my husband wanted to give me a trip for a graduation present, I thought I had earned at least a trip to three locations, so I chose China, Egypt and Russia. Each location was different, but this article concerns Russia. The tourism brochures painted marvelous pictures of an elegant vacation with spas, up-to-date hotels and excursions. The brochures did not lie: the sites were ...

FCC proposal

As a news organization, we at the Chronicle-Independent tend to pay more attention to First Amendment issues than most people, and a new proposal by the Federal Communications Commission threatens to let the government decide what news stories television stations can broadcast. We realize, of course, that many cable stations today lean one way or the other; you need look no further than the two most commonly cited ones, FOX News and MSNBC, both of which might purport to deliver straight-up news but seldom do. But the great thing is that people can tune in to whatever news outlet they ...
