If not us, who? Historic Beaufort Foundation embraces role as watchdog

Commendably, Mayor Billy Keyserling often shows young residents around City Hall, enlightening them to the ins and outs of city government. Recently, two Cub Scouts attended a council work session, and as the mayor introduced those in the room to the youngsters, he pointed to the public in attendance and said, "Some of them are regulars at city meetings. We call them watchdogs." The young Scouts looked confused, not seeing any canines in the room, and it was all I could do to refrain from barking for comedic effect.
