Common Core Tests are Failures

A 6th grader in East Texas recently challenged state lawmakers to do what she and every other public-school kid have to do during testing season: "Sit in a room for up to four hours, without talking, writing, drawing, reading, or using your cell phone." Because millions of children are taking Common Core standardized tests this time of year, I did her one better. I took a 4th-grade English Language Arts practice test. The good news is I passed.

Orchard announcement

When is the best time to plant a tree? The answer is "10 years ago." The second best time to plant a tree however, is today. Trees provide air for us to breathe, shade to help keep us cool, beauty for our eyes to glance upon, and fruit for us to eat. They are just beneficial to be around physically and emotionally. I have fond memories of helping my mom trim our trees, and more than once, seeing just how high I could climb in an old Catalpa tree before I lost my nerve!

John Keenan – reflections on a life well lived

When I learned on Thursday that John Keenan had passed away, Uncle John to me – though we were actually first cousins – there were many thoughts that came to mind. Foremost was the trip in August 1971, I took with John, Ersa, and their son Mike to the American Legion National baseball championships in Billings, Montana. I was 12. John was a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and if there was young talent playing somewhere, someplace, John was usually in the stands, stop watch, pencil and program in hand.
