The school got the chance to make a television commercial. The cost of the commercial was substantial. The benefits of the commercial were not clear. Even though the … Read the rest

Snake oil and anonymous emails

Posted on October 22, 2017 5:05 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

I have never been the nicest person. As I’ve said many times before, I’m one of those people you have to get to know. Before that point, I’m generally stand-offish and skeptical of other people’s intentions.
Funny that I’ve had a job for more than 16 years which requires me to deal with the public on a daily basis. Here lately, I find random messages from folks bother me more than they used to.
It’s like I had a tank filled with some type of “able to handle random people running their mouths” fuel, and now I am slap out.… Read the rest

Monarchs let lead slip to Bishop England

Posted on October 21, 2017 6:06 pm by Drew Tripp

DANIEL ISLAND – Manning let a late lead slip away Friday against Region 7-AAA rival Bishop England, falling 45-36 in gut-wrenching fashion.
Ahead 436-32 with 45 seconds to play, the Monarchs (6-3, 0-3) gave up a touchdown pass by the Bishops’ Leo Albano, who’s desperate 44-yard heave barely made it over the fingertips of a leaping Manning defender, and into the hands of Will Bastian for the game-winning score.
The Bishops (6-2, 3-0) forced a fumble on Manning’s ensuing drive, and Daniel Hollister recovered the ball in the end zone to account for the final score.
The loss came after … Read the rest
