St. Paul schools chief is sole finalist for Austin job

I'm not surprised she is leaving. Look at her resume. She never stays long term at any position. She won't be staying in Austin either.  (Feb 26, 2009 | post #38)

Is eight too many?

I place equal blame on the physician too. A33 y.o.woman with 6 children, no job, living with her mother is not a candidate for another IVF procedure. He/she should be investigated.  (Feb 12, 2009 | post #5)

Metro schools giving Latin language new life

St. Agnes H.S. in Saint Paul has always offered Latin. I grew up back east, Latin was required if you were going into nursing or medicine.  (Oct 28, 2008 | post #10)

Republican by day, Romeo by night, robbed by morning

I didn't realize consorting with ladies of the night was part of family values. As a single man wasn't he supposed to practice abstinence? I guess it's do as I say, not as I do.  (Sep 16, 2008 | post #82)

Parents scramble to fill one-week day care gap as program...

I didn't say, or imply that. I was a working single mother who found local attractions great whether it was vacation time or not. My point was that one does not need to leave town to enjoy a week's vacation. Untold numbers of us cannot afford vacations out of town this year. The media has coined the term staycations.  (Aug 20, 2008 | post #52)

Parents scramble to fill one-week day care gap as program...

Jen, why can't you take them to see something beyond MN? The Black Hills make a nice week's vacation. Chicago is a great city to spend a week. Door County, WI is another favorite vacation spot. If you can afford to fly (I never could) there's any number of one week destinations. It's not like this gap week came as a surprise so plans could be made ahead of time. And depending on the age of your kids they could help plan it, using math and geography skills. I only suggested local spots because so many of us cannot afford to travel this summer. I can't, and I'm a solo traveler.  (Aug 20, 2008 | post #48)

There is so much to do locally. I cannot afford a vacation at all but living here means I don't need to go away for a vacation. My kids are adults now but I was a single, working parent so I have walked the walk. My 2 favorite places are Como Park and Minnehaha Falls.Plus there is the State Fair that week.  (Aug 20, 2008 | post #45)

What's wrong with taking the week off to enjoy quality time with your kids? Como Zoo, the State Fair, Minnehaha Falls, the list goes on of places nearby where parents can have fun with their kids.  (Aug 20, 2008 | post #44)

Report: Jesse Ventura may become TV judge

Aren't TV judges all really judges? I know Judge Judy is. I think Jesse would be in the Judge Judy style, telling it like it is.  (Aug 19, 2008 | post #26)

Wisconsin girl who drowned in Crystal identified

When I had a pool no one, child or adult, was allowed to swim alone. Now I am in an apt with an outside pool. Children under 16 must have an adult with them. The aunt is ultimately responsible for this death. And yes, there had to be others around, how come no one noticed the girl? Apt complex pools are not olympic pools, they are relatively small.  (Aug 17, 2008 | post #7)

Edwards' ally explains $14,000 payment to mistress

Amen to this!! None of this is a Democrat/Republica n thing. It's about men who cannot keep their zippers zipped and women who have no respect for other women.  (Aug 17, 2008 | post #33)
