Education Oversight Committee needs major reality check

Imagine if the teacher of your child or grandchild or some other young person in your life told the class that no matter what grades were made on a given test, 30 percent of the class would fail. I feel very certain in saying that this would be viewed as unfair and arbitrary, and with good reason.

Tragic incidents such as just happened in Las Vegas will not nor cannot be solved by more gun control laws. It can and will only be solved until eliminating corruption in politics, which is visible in any job profession, within churches, schools, work places, and all types of government. It starts at the lowest level and goes all the way to the top, in cities, in countries and at state and federal levels.

Pat Wylie was a ‘man for all seasons’

With the passing of Pat Wylie this week, Camden has lost a true treasure. Many of us loved him and all of us respected him. He touched the lives of so many of us that his absence will be irreplaceable. To me, he was a mentor and a colleague. But, most of all, he was a dear friend.
