Another flawed silver bullet

A few weeks back, I was honored to be present to see the Baron DeKalb Elementary School Improvement Council receive the Dick and Tunky Riley School Improvement Council Award. What made it a particular privilege was the fact that former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Secretary of Education Dick Riley was there to present the award. The opportunity to meet him was truly memorable for me.

Noted and passed -- April 6. 2012

• We're glad to read that analysts say the surge in gasoline prices is nearing its end and that prices might actually subside a bit as we head toward summer. Here in the United States, fuel prices have never been a classic supply-and-demand item, and there are few who truly understand the system. But one thing is indeed clear: if prices are going down, we're all going to have more money in our pockets to spend on other things and to help stimulate the recovery, and that's indeed a good thing.
