See you at the Everett Home and Garden Show

  • Apr 16, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2013 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, 2013 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.
