Two schools to be rezoned for 2009-10

Rezoning schools is one of those jobs that can be referred to as a necessary evil. As a school system, we must continually re-evaluate the number of students at each school and ensure that we have enough staff members, space, etc., to meet state and federal requirements and guidelines. Any time there is a need to change students from one school to another and change the zoning boundaries, we try to make the fewest moves possible and move students who live closest to their new school. This is not always an easy task.

Inaugural litter was historic, too

Last Tuesday was truly a historic day as the first African-American president took the oath of office. Record crowds attended the inauguration. Unfortunately, the litter left behind was also historic. According to an article in the Washington Post by Petula Dvorak, Washington garbage trucks hauled away more than 130 tons of garbage after the inauguration of President Obama. National Park Service workers picked up almost 100 tons on the National Mall and near the White House.

Faith is not a new concept

We heard it, we've seen it, we've called for it, voted for it, and some have accepted it. The "It" I'm talking about is change. This week started with some historic and powerful events. On Tuesday, we heard our new president say, "Change has come to America." This is an exciting and powerful statement.

Black and white stories can be powerful

One Sunday, while sitting around the dinner table, my sister Louise and I began to tell "Daddy stories" - the ones that stretched back to the early days of his preaching life. Since I was born 12 years after he was "made a preacher," as our folks said back then, I could only contribute what he had told to me about those days, not what I had seen.
