Cal Thomas: Abolishing 'man' at Princeton

Princeton, that once great school whose purpose at its founding in 1746 was to train ministers and whose motto remains Dei Sub Numine Viget (Under God's Power She Flourishes), has, like other schools of "higher" learning, jumped into the deep end of the pool of political correctness.

Sandrock Elementary School pilots school supplies program

Staff at Sandrock give parents a break; buying general school supplies from area merchants

Parents of children going to Sandrock Elementary School have one less item to complete on their back to school task list. Instead of hunting around town in a sort of school supply treasure hunt to acquire everything on a list of required supplies, Principal Kamisha Siminoe and her staff have done the shopping for parents. For $20, less if the student qualifies for reduced or free school lunch, students will receive supplies needed to carry them through the school year.

From Pipi’s Pasture: Remembering the “Dick and Jane” books

I thought about back-to-school when Lyle and I were “up Morapos” on Tuesday to turn the cattle into the hay meadow part of the pasture.

I could almost smell the sagebrush and rabbit brush that had been cut back from the buildings as they were being readied for school.

Baxter Black: Horse psychology

Some people are just flat good at handlin’ horses. They’ve got that good “horse savvy.” Matter of fact, there are people actually makin’ a livin’ trainin’ horses! I admire these folks’ ability and special talent. It’s always a pleasure to see a good horse workin’ right. But horses look at veterinarians like kids look at Sunday school or cowboys look at weddings.
