Schools are ‘student focused’

Our schools are designed to be "student-focused and future-driven." This simply means that we are here to prepare our students for the future by ensuring that they obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful. We will help them acquire this knowledge and skill set by focusing on each and every student who steps in the doors of our classrooms. Accomplishing these tasks will not be possible without our Board of Education, faculty, staff, and community.

Using science as our guide to wisdom

Twenty years ago I spoke with a well-to-do Savannah lawyer who owned a large, impressive house in the Isle of Hope section of Chatham County. A long walk ramp went out to his private dock in the Skidaway River.

History is about making connections

A couple of weeks ago we had to put down our dog. Riley wasn't just any dog. He did not slobber or jump all over you. If he decided you were one of "his people" he would greet you with a wag of the tail and if you were really special he would lay his ears back, smile, and come over for a brief pat and then go back to doing what he did best…..stoically guarding his territory so his people were safe. Why am I sharing this with you? Why should you even care?

Pisano gets revved up

I'm really tempted to write President Obama a letter. Maybe someone can just email him over a copy of this column instead. He's listed.

Honesty a good policy

In our experience, there are three words politicians with an eye on staying in office generally tend to avoid: millage rate increase. After all, just to say them is to invite the wrath of property owners tired of bearing so much of the burden for government.

The truth matters

Only a handful of people know what happened on April 14, when law enforcement officers -- including newly appointed Pembroke Police Chief Mark Crowe -- and a handful of North Bryan residents were involved in an incident that led to several arrests and the use of considerable force against Tommy Lee Williams, one of those arrested.

Fighting child abuse, neglect should be priority

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month in Georgia, as proclaimed by Gov. Nathan Deal. Child abuse is a subject I don't like to think about, let alone write about, and you probably would just as soon not read about. But it is there, and we need to acknowledge it and demand some solutions.

Beards are making a comeback

I have something I haven't had since I was in my early 20s. In fact, one of my favorite pictures taken in 1980 with my sister exposes it very well.

No point fighting desire to help others

They all come with some kind of a price and all with a certain amount of disappointment, but still, Rodney keeps trying.

Don't be at kid's beck and call

Call me an old-timer, but moms and dads just did things differently when I was a child. The overall approach to parenting seems to have changed so much. My parents fostered independence in my siblings and me. They wanted us to learn early on that we needed to be able to speak and do things for ourselves, and the sooner we understood that, the better off we'd be.

Time to fix government is overdue

In 1965, Wilbur Mills, the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, brought legislation establishing Medicare and Medicaid to the floor of the U.S. House.

Women can be great community leaders

March was International Women's Month, and while we are moving into April, it is still worth mentioning that women have been trailblazers in their communities, right alongside their men.

Washington needs new blood

Editor, I cannot be the only one who is tired of the status quo in Washington, D.C. Primary election time is coming up and we have a tough decision to make. We can either elect somebody who is a career politician like Buddy Carter, or vote for Dr. Bob Johnson, an Army veteran who has never run for public office.
