Hayes' Hit: Fresh and comfortable
Updated: April 30, 2016 - 7:40 pm

The other night, I kept a close eye on my rear view mirror. I felt that at any moment, my peaceful drive through Gettysburg could be interrupted by Jedi Knights seeking revenge for my unintended attack on their beloved drone, R2D2.

The cost of outdoor education
Posted: April 28, 2016

Ask anyone about their childhood memories of time spent in school and you may hear about escapades at recess, practical jokes played on their friends, or a certain teacher who remains vivid in their memories. If you ask them what they remember learning, they will likely recall what they learned during experiences they had on field trips. Perhaps you also remember the knowledge you gained during those times you spent at a nature preserve or state park exploring the outdoors. Maybe you were fortunate enough to spend a week with your classmates at an outdoor camp or go on field trips to the Smithsonian Institute or the Washington D.C. Zoo. Chances are that these types of experiences impacted your learning more than anything taught within concrete walls. Recent research suggests there is a reason for this.

Victory for the taxpayer
Updated: April 27, 2016 - 11:47 am

If there is a silver lining in the 2015-16 budget debate, it is the "unveiling" of details in the budget process that have always existed but rarely put on public display. Most of you should now be aware that finalizing a state budget is not as simple as passing one bill. Many moving parts have to come together if a spending plan is to be put in place.

Waste and mismanagement
Posted: April 26, 2016

Now more than ten years old, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) no longer can blame its continued program failures, employee misconduct and lingering management challenges on "growing pains." Since its inception, DHS has faced significant obstacles, including consolidating 22 pre-existing agencies and reporting to approximately 100 Congressional oversight committees, all while trying to strike a balance between National security and protecting privacy. However, with this country more than $19 trillion in debt, our taxpayers can't afford to support failing management.

Can acceptance work better?
Updated: April 25, 2016 - 8:31 am

If my home was bombed, my neighbors, friends and family members were slaughtered, beyond the overwhelming sensation of terror that would grip me, would be a sense of despair.

Safety is paramount in North Carolina
Updated: April 23, 2016 - 9:57 am

We humans could learn a thing or two from wild critters. Sometimes they eat together and sometimes they take turns. Sometimes a bully comes on scene and chases them all away, and sometimes even the little guy fights back. And sometimes the little guy wins.

The second mouse
Posted: April 21, 2016

Her great-grandfather started a trash removal service shortly after World War I. He worked hard and built a substantial business. Back in those days, they were called junkyards and dumps. When he started, they burned what they could, built up giant piles of what would not burn, and allowed nature to deteriorate that pile over time. Purposeful recycling, a strong environmentalist movement, and a common awareness of hazardous waste were in the future.
