There was a new kind of bird roosting on the lawn of Bud Werner Memorial Library on Saturday afternoon. At first glance, the unique species resembled a flock of Greater Sandhill Cranes, but upon closer inspection, it was made clear the birds were works of art created in honor of the annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival. The graceful creatures were part of a new Crane Yard Art event, which helped highlight this year's event. Spearheaded by volunteers who focus their efforts on providing public education about cranes to the community, the local Crane Festival is in its third year and continues to grow in popularity. The event includes crane viewings, lectures from experts, films, art, workshops and a number of crane-themed activities. This year, instead of displaying crane art at the Art Depot Center, George Watts and Karen Kellogg helped direct a committee for the new art event. Artists from around the area as well as a few young artists from Steamboat Springs High School took part in decorating the cranes ...

Minnesotans give higher ratings to schools now than they did 40 years ago 9.9.2014 MinnPost
Ah, that crafty Mark Dayton and his all-day-K. The governor, who you might have heard is campaigning for a second term, just might turn out to have a Machiavellian bone or two after all.      Turns out we are much more likely to rate our schools as good or excellent now than 40 years ago, when the Minnesota Miracle put the state’s education system in the national spotlight. Two-thirds of Minnesotans today describe their schools as good, compared to 45 percent in 1974. Over the same time period, the number rating them as excellent has risen from 10 percent to 13 percent. The findings are part of a public opinion poll [PDF] presented Friday to the Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD) by the Morris Leatherman Co.

A slim majority of Minnesotans — 53 percent — feel the state is headed in the right direction, according to the poll. Meanwhile 63 percent say their ...
