One man’s trash is another man’s...

in
Rogers, Randy.jpg

Looking back, I can’t remember who drove the green dump truck or what day it came by, but we were always watching out for it and the brown paper bag of Super Bubble he kept in a paper sack on the seat. If you caught him in time, he’d hand a piece down to you. What a sight it must have been to see a half dozen neighborhood kids chasing a trash truck.

For the fifth year in a row local beer connoisseurs will have the chance to support the arts and taste a variety of locally brewed beverages in a new location.
Jessica Slaughter, NCLAC executive director, said ARToberfest is a beer-tasting fundraiser.
“We bring together regional home brewers, commercial beers and great music for a night of good company with a good purpose,” she said. “The last few years the event has grown and sold out our venue, so this year we’ve moved to the Norton Building, where we’ll be able to have more guests.”

Common Core could be coming around

in
Arrington, Briana NEW 8-14.jpg

Common Core has been one of the most controversial subjects to ever darken the doors of education. In fact, in my lifetime it may be the most controversial. I have written numerous columns where I played the antagonist to its standards, but after visiting Glen View Elementary today, I’m slowly changing my mind.
Education is no doubt, evolving. The implementation of technology has had a huge impact on our society as a whole and I think a trickle-down effect started happening several years ago when mobile devices (i.e. laptops and then tablets) became accessible to everyone.
