Beauty and the dogs

Camdenite Stephanie Keel thinks every face has a story to tell -- and she should know. Stephanie is a modeling and talent developer. She scouts, trains and places the potential "next face" in larger markets that will allow opportunities for being discovered. She's also a connoisseur of canine faces. Her heart for dogs beats strongly. So, it's no surprise that sometimes she sees the face of a dog on social media or in person and just knows that they're the one.

My Brain on NASCAR - Nov. 21, 2017

Well, it's finally here; the last race of the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series season. Every year I complain about the length of the season, and then every year I'm sad to see it end. When that checkered flag waves at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 19, Jimmie Johnson's championship reign will end -- temporarily -- and he will be replaced by either one of three former champions, or one shiny new one.

The future is now!

I'm pretty darned proud of what our school district is able to accomplish with the resources available to us. While our funding is somewhere in the bottom third of the state, our results are generally in the top third or better. I am especially gratified by this given the huge financial hit our district took during the economic downturn, a hit from which we haven't completely recovered. We have been able to continue to perform academically because we do everything possible to focus our resources on schools and classrooms by operating "lean and mean" wherever else we can.
