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. Most of the students actually read the book and didn’t rely on Spark Notes or other internet sources for their information. So the class discussion was lively and good.

Spring has sprung - first week of April

Wendell George | Relinquish the ego, find balance

Do we get smarter as we grow older? Native Americans believe so because they have deep respect for their elders. As my Dad, Moses, became one he said the Salish word for it is “Sqool-Chel” which strictly means “Soul” but better understood as a process of “Going into goodness.” That means the best of anything. Dad believed it is our purpose in life and we naturally gravitate to it.
