|Why is School District 50 not protecting my child from bullying?|
At 10:20am January 27, 2015, my 6th grade daughter was aggressively grabbed by a male student, who dug his fingernail into her arm. She responded by pushing him away. On January 28, 2015, I received a phone call from the Assistant Principal of Brewer Middle School at approximately 2:30pm, stating my child shoved another child the previous day after he grabbed her arm. He informed me that no teacher had witnessed the incident. He said that my daughter would receive 2 days ISS (in-school suspension) for pushing the child. |

|Go Big..Or Go Home|
Outrage over raising taxes on the right. Outrage over the specter of spending cuts on the left.|
This "same ol' same ol'" response to Governor Haley's plan to trade a gas tax increase for an income tax cut has - as usual - missed the big point. And it leaves most South Carolinians with little faith that we'll ever overcome the challenges we face.

|Keep the Greenwood War Memorial Intact|
As a resident of Greenwood County and retired National Park Service historian of 32 years I was alarmed by a the recent newpaper article (12/17/14) with front page headlines and picture stating Greenwood Mayor Welborn Adams' intent to change bronze plaques on the historic uptown War Memorial erected in 1929. |

|Thanks to Cub Scouts Pack 270|
We want to say thank you to leaders and parents who volunteer their time to help contribute to the success of our Cub Scout Pack 270. It is a year around contribution and is a lot of work!! It's not just one meeting a week, there are hours of planning for week/monthly/yearly events and then hours involved to make those plans happen.|

Christmas a time to reflect on friends, family, parties, food. A feeling of euphoria that will quickly deflate if we fail to celebrate "THE REASON FOR THE SEASON, JESUS".|
Click and see the following poem I wrote over 20 years ago.
