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.

Phillips: Hey buddy, got a light?

I guess I'll have to admit I am a living contradiction. That could apply to a lot of aspects of my life, but what I am specifically referring to here is my love/hate relationship with modern technology. My regular readers are well aware of this.

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.)

Scully: Happy trails

Most people want recreational walking and hiking trails in the city and county.

Unfortunately the fans had to sit through the first half of a football game between two less than mediocre teams before seeing the Brooklyn-Cayce and Camden bands perform. B-C and Camden would soon clash in the state's band championship for the first place trophy, but an ugly incident at the end of the first half caused the football coach to be fired that night.
