What a nice story by this reporter. She is doing a good job of telling us what the schools are doing. Thanks to the Citizen-Times for giving her the space to cover this. A welcome relief from all the "police blotter" reports.

I'm not sure what the article said, but the 8 planets are hanging from the ceiling while Pluto is on a plaque at the back of the auditorium/planetorium with a sign about his dwarf status. There's a play going up in this space at the end of March 2010 that is a trial of Eris and explores myth, science, and the human tendency towards both curious exploration and fear of change.

I'm not sure why the post said I lived in Hendersonville, NC. I live in Asheville. I wonder what part of NC it will say I live in now....
