George Wilson Sr. was truly an inspiration
While a senior at Appalachian State University, I did my student teaching at Knox Middle School with Beaver Robinette, the middle school band director, and got to know George Wilson then. I also played flute for a number of the musicals and watched in awe as George led the students through their paces. He demanded the best from each and got it. He taught not just music but love for learning.

I am proud of the United States Postal Service. It has not let me down over the last week with the inclement weather. I have received my mail every day, with a smile and wave from my mail courier. Other services have held onto my packages due to the bad weather, and I have even been without my newspaper for several days due to the roads. Not my mail, though. It has been here every day. Thank you, USPS, for living up to the motto: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
