Bloom: In Israel, peace is happening ‘person by person’

I am sitting in the Arab quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem having a cup of mint tea. It is about 5:30 p.m. and suddenly I hear a blasting sound of the Muslim clergy chanting prayers through a microphone piercing the old city calling the faithful to pray. It is not a distant sound but one piercing my ears. I was sitting around the corner from the old city mosque.

Todd Bornscheuer, principal at the soon-to-open May River High School in Bluffton, says of the entire 248,000 square foot, $68 million campus, he's partial to the stand-alone Advanced Technical Center. And yep, he shares why that is. Plus, cool aerial drone shots. Enrollment at the school will be around 950 in year one, Beaufort County School officials said on Friday, May 6, 2016, with the student body projected to expand to 3,000 within a decade.
