Just a reminder: Today begins a two week battle of teachers' brains on the popular TV game show, Jeopardy. Ocracokers have a special interest in this contest because Charles Temple, our high school English teacher will be competing.
Even though Charles is not scheduled to appear on the show until Thursday, I thought our readers might want to follow the program all week (and perhaps next week as well).
You can read more about this tournament here: http://www.jeopardy.com/news/teacherstournament.php.
Charles has been tight-lipped about the outcome (the tournament was taped weeks ago, and he was sworn to secrecy by the producers), but we are all impressed with his wide range of sometimes useless knowledge, so we think he did OK!
