Looking at public education reform efforts past and present

I had the privilege to speak to several hundred educators in Atlanta last week. I was there to talk about my experiences as a member of the Education Reform Commission but, as is my wont, I soon deviated off the purpose for which I had been invited to speak and into unchartered waters. Which raises a question: Why do I spend so much time preparing speeches if I am not going to use them? I must ask myself that sometime. I would be interested in the answer.

Mountain Climbers

In 1996, a group of dedicated hikers decided to make the trek to the top of the world. Unbeknownst to the well-trained crew, a storm changed directions across the Himalayan range and arose from the abyss. Before the hikers had a chance to escape to one of the lower base camps, the horrific storm laid claim to many of their lives. This is one of many stories that support the statement that "The Mountain has the last word."

Have you ever thought …

The building that was, for many years, home to Mayfield Hardware is now the home for "Your Pie". It opened on Saturday, Feb. 20, to the greatest numbers as any in the history of the Your Pie organization. The hardware store moved all its operations out to its location on Hwy. 278 several years ago. But through "Your Pie", along with a new clothing store coming in March, the old building is coming alive again.
