See you at the Everett Home and Garden Show

  • Apr 16, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:30PM

I don't know about you but I am so sick and tired of this relentless cold and wet weather I could just spit. Every where I look it seems to appear that spring is here but it sure doesn't feel like it. Days in the low to mid-40s and nights still in the 30s. The ground is so cold and wet that I have absolutely no desire to bend down and pull a weed or plant a new perennial. My vegetable garden soil in my raised beds is ready but every time I think I am going to plant some new transplants it is raining again. What's a gardener to do? Go to the Home and Garden Show of course.

Letters Teaching Democracy

  • Apr 16, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:37PM

In response to the recent student protest at Totem Middle School, our staff is looking at ways to improve communication and provide more effective avenues for student voice. I am struck by how clearly this highlights our need to actively embrace what I believe to be one of the primary purposes of our public schools namely, to teach democracy. We do this best not by talking about democracy, but by the creation of democratic cultures marked by policies, structures and practices that naturally transmit democratic values by their very existence.
