As most of our readers know, Charles Temple, our high school English teacher (that's right...he is our one and only high school English teacher) is a semi-finalist on Jeopardy's very first Tournament of Teachers.
Last week Charles bested his competition, scoring more than $20,000 (these are actually points, not dollars...my understanding is that tournament contestants' winnings are computed differently). Tonight he battles two of the other high scorers for a chance at the grand prize.
Tune in this evening and follow Charles' progress along with the rest of Ocracoke village. We are all cheering him on.
