Noted and passed - Nov. 18, 2013

• One of the great talents of the modern musical world was Roy Orbison, who died in 1987 at age 52. Orbison's sons plan to soon release a host of previously unknown music which the multi-talented singer recorded in the years preceding his death. The sons vow these are not outtakes or junk songs, but tunes which will enhance the singer's stature rather than reduce it. Orbison, of "Oh, Pretty Woman" fame, left the earth too soon, and his fans will no doubt relish these new releases.

‘Flexibility,’ or throwing the baby out with the bath water?

I've been doing this work for a long time, almost 39 years. I've seen probably every educational fad, movement, silver bullet, innovation, reform, program and change you can think of, and then some.

Payments deferred

Many of the most important occupations receive the smallest salaries. For example, policemen are notoriously underpaid, as are firefighters. Teachers, entrusted with children, the most valuable items for both the parents and the world, receive the least for the most. I remember my first salary to be $2,785 a year! In spite of the fact that I was certainly better looking, more energetic, idealistic and gullible enough to think all students wanted an education and bringing an "A" diploma and teaching certification, the payment was small in terms of money. However, little did I expect or anticipate that the ...

Barn Fire

The Lugoff Fire Department (LFD) battles a barn fire Nov. 12 on Guion Drive off Lachicotte Road in Lugoff. A cold front entering the area brought wind gusts of more than 30 mph to the area, threatening to drive the flames against a nearby residence. LFD Battalion 1, Rescue 10 and Engine 10 arrived on the scene to find the large barn heavily involved in fire. The fire also spread to the yard and woods surrounding the home and threatened a neighbor's detached car garage. LFD crews immediately protected the exposed structures with three attack lines while other crews ...
