No matter how cold, some things can't be ignored!
No matter how cold, some things can't be ignored!

Let's see, last Friday morning when I checked one electronic thermometer out in Mapleville, the temperature was 4.8 degrees.
A second thermometer said it was 6 degrees -- but even averaging them indicated it was 5.4 degrees -- way too cold!
And then the one in my pickup suggested it was only 2 degrees, so averaging all three brought the total down to a very frigid 4.3 degrees!

Respectfully, I disagree with Guin, everyone is not happy. Are you happy this has cost the people of Franklin County $1.5 million?

For-profits running charter schools? How can that be?
For-profits running charter schools? How can that be?

This is the most frustrating article I have written for this newspaper.
Ironically it is the most exhaustively researched.
Despite searching seemingly countless North Carolina statutes, NCGA bills and even a couple of North Carolina Appellate Court decisions, I can't find where it became legal for a for-profit corporation to obtain a school charter in this state.

Poverty, education are linked

Dear editor:
Poverty and education are closely linked:
To improve education, we must first reduce poverty.
