Noble: A simple life of virtue

It was announced this week Jimmy Carter has cancer. I don't know what will happen or if it will cut short his life -- though I'm not sure "cut short" applies to a man who is 90 years old.

I noticed several days ago where someone on Facebook posted that very amusing Staples' back to school commercial, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." I have to say it's one of my favorites, though not necessarily because of the obvious.

Morgan: Families and success in school

We are officially one week away from the first day of school for students! One of the many blessings of working in education is you get to start fresh every year. (This is true for both students and the adults who work with them.)
