Little Joe wasn’t surprised when he discovered he was Native American. He had brown eyes, dark hair and some of his friends called him “Chief.” On his 13th birthday he decided to find out who his birth parents were. He had a good adopted family who provided him with an excellent education and a healthy life. But he wanted more.

Nancy Coolidge | Winning the battle

Two really nice things happened in my junior English class last week. We were finishing up “The Great Gatsby.” The kids were pretty excited about it — they’d done some work in their history class about the era; many of the students, mostly girls, had seen the latest movie, the book was short; the prose not too challenging.

Linda Holmes-Cook | Dahlias: Stress relief on a stem

I don’t remember the first time I realized what good medicine it was to walk through my dahlia garden. Oh sure, I knew how good exercise was for me, and gardening certainly provides that. We also know that there is a direct correlation between stress and overall wellness, and that being active is better than being sedentary. But therapy? Seriously?
