Feir and Wit: Desire for Practical Toys Leads to Adulthood

October 1, 2012

You know you’re getting older when the acquisition of new or upgraded kitchen accessories produces excitement. In the past few years, I’ve moved on from Easy-Bake Ovens to much greater culinary gadgets.

The reason most kids under 30 years old don’t find the lit-up magic of a touch-screen oven or the ease of an electric can opener exhilarating is because we don’t really need to.

Who cooks on a regular basis? Why would you go to the trouble of buying several ingredients when there’s ramen to be bought, 10 cents each? What’s an oven, anyway, and how do you use one?

State Seeks Input on Teachers

September 28, 2012

The North Dakota Department of Instruction (DPI) is asking for all interested people to provide input on the new proposed guidelines for the professional evaluations of teachers and principals.

After several districts across the state failed to meet the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act, the state applied for a waiver from the act.
Submitting the waiver means the state must have established uniform guidelines for the evaluations. A DPI advisory committee worked from October, 2011, to July to develop the proposed guidelines.

Blonde on the Prairie: A Posse of Goats to Vote

September 28, 2012

I begin this prose in quite a conundrum.
Trying to find peace but haven’t yet found some.
I begin every morning alive with the news.
CNN, FOX –they give me the blues.

I’m just the blonde, living on the prairie-
But toot’in my own horn (which is really quite scary!)
I’m a woman with hormones and I have a gun.
Bring me a militant and I’ll get ‘er done.

My posse is housewives – women of strength.
Proverbs 31 proves they’d earn “General” as ranks.
Each and every one of them is as patriotic as me.
So we wonder how dumb our elected can be.
