Apr 05 2013, 3:19 PM
To the Good Samaritan: I appreciated your help in mounting a tire on my maroon car on February 27.
I failed to get your name and phone number. As you left me to get home in the 20 minutes left ‘til dinner time your wife gave you, I saw that you had dropped a screwdriver, or it fell out of your pickup.
Give me a call and I’ll return your tool. Thanks again,

Learning matters: Education critique from Mount Si High students gets attention from C-SPAN | Photo gallery
Apr 05 2013, 3:28 PM
School is just a game, say students in a short film from Mount Si High School, and a simple one. It’s just about memorizing a few facts long enough to take a test, they say, and they’ll never use that information again.
“The problem is students don’t learn to learn,” says Emmit Rudd, who created the film with Dean Sydnor.
Rudd’s denunciation of modern education is echoed by students, teachers and administrators at Mount Si in “Education in America: The Reprehensible System.” It is also, as Rudd’s and Sydnor’s entry in the 2013 StudentCam video competition by C-SPAN, the most important issue they think President Obama will face in 2013.

Letters | Help Valley’s schools grow and prosper, cut out the undermining
Apr 30 2013, 11:52 AM
As a forest manager for over 20 years, I appreciate the complexities of the ecosystem in which we are fortunate to live. A forest system involves a complex balance to grow and flourish — from ancient snow-capped mountaintops to the delicate forest floor in which young seedlings need nourishment to take root each year.
I draw a similar analogy to the complexities of sustaining a healthy school system. It takes seasoned education professionals who can adapt to seasons of change, together with involved families and community support, to ensure our children have the “nourishment” and foundation they need to grow and prosper into contributing adults themselves.
