The drawbacks of being young

When people ask me if I would not like to be young again --- specifically to be a teenager, I am sure they have forgotten the age. Also, when they ask me how I tolerated teaching that age, I know they are mistaken. One person even told me what a waste of time my occupation had been! Being a teenager is one of the most difficult yet rewarding times of a person's life. The effort to become independent is so hard.

A post oak that stood guard over Camden Elementary School (seen to the right) for more than 60 years fell during the early morning hours Friday across Fair Street. Camden Urban Forester Liz Gilland said the tree fell due to a combination of root rot, compacted soil, pavement around the roots and strong winds from a passing storm earlier in the night.
