“I wince when I hear my fellow liberals describe themselves as “progressive,” but not because I believe that the term “liberal” is inherently superior, as Mr. Weiner does. After all, political labels are just shorthand: We use them for convenience, even at the loss of some precision. Rather, what I find objectionable is the naïve belief that liberalism will somehow magically triumph if we just call it something else. […] Indeed, results of the last few elections suggest that liberals should focus on refining their policies rather than on simply relabeling them. Now that would be progress.”

–Fred Cameny of Chapel Hill, N.C., in a letter to the Editor, New York Times, April 30, 2018.

Announcements:

The Online auction to benefit the G.W. Carver Center in Bunnell is now open. Art Work, Local Experiences, Restaurant Gift Cards, Baskets, FCYC Summer Camp Registration & Trip Specials, Window Cleaning, Kayaking Tour, Furniture, World Wide Time Share, Camping Rentals, and the list goes on and on. The purpose of the auction is to raise money to go back into the development of the Carver Center. The Flagler County School Board and Flagler County Government have both owned and managed the facility over the years. Due to budgetary constraints it appeared it would be necessary to close the facility in 2010. A coalition was born to save the Gym and restore it as a community center. Our foundation was created to serve this facility with grant funding and equipment/supply needs. In order to participate in this auction you must register for a bidder account here. On the last day of the auction if a bidder submits a bid in the last 3 minutes before auction closes that item will extend for another 3 minutes and that process will repeat for up to a half hour the official close. Go bid here. If you have any questions please contact us via email at auction@carverfoundation.org
