    With one guidance counselor serving 530 students at Carroll County High School, it took Sheree Richter five weeks this past fall to meet face-to-face with every senior for twenty minutes.

  • It’s time to look at life and avoid complacency

    The Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard wrote a story about a wild duck. The wild duck was flying with his fellow comrades in the springtime northward across Europe. At one point during the flight the flock spotted a barnyard and decided to descend and rest. When they landed they immediately noticed the barnyard was occupied by a large number of tame ducks.
