Auction of Trump's boyhood home postponed 20.10.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • Will Donald Trump’s first boyhood home in New York City be worth more, or less, after the election? The people trying to sell the charming, Tudor-style home in a leafy section of Queens cancelled their plan Wednesday to auction it off on the same night Trump was to face Hillary Clinton in a presidential debate. Paramount Realty USA, which had arranged the auction at a Manhattan hotel, said it may try again after the election. “Because the auction was getting so much press coverage a l...

Trump's boyhood home headed to auction 19.10.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • It’s not Trump Tower. But Donald Trump’s first boyhood home is a charming two-story Tudor-style home in a park-like enclave of New York City. Now, the Jamaica Estates house is going on the auction block Wednesday evening with an opening bid of $849,000. Trump lived in the home — built in 1940 by his developer father — until he was 4 years old, when the family moved to another house in the same community, also built by his dad. A slate path leads up to the brick-and-stucco home that ha...

Op-ed: Utahns should confront their 'unconscious' racism 18.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
When I think of my Utah home, I’m reminded of the song from “Avenue Q,” “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist.” As an educator, I confront racism frequently. It is not the overt, public displays of racism where individuals intend to harm or damage another, but rather the covert, “unconscious” and subtle racism embedded in the very fabric of our most treasured institutions. I know that some of you are already getting defensive and formulating how to respond. You might counter with, “Oh, no we’re not! Y...

Young Tracks launches local food program 11.9.2016 Steamboat Pilot
One local preschool and daycare facility is working to put more locally sourced foods into the bellies, and the classrooms, of children who attend their programs. Young Tracks preschool and infant care center began partnering last year with Yampa Valley Farms, Community Agriculture Alliance and Innovative Ag to bring fresh beef, pork and microgreens into the school cafeteria. “It started last fall, when I realized the prices in the grocery store had been going up and up,” said Hillary Ackerman, a Young Tracks employee. After talking with the Ag Alliance, she realized Young Tracks could purchase beef directly through Yampa Valley Farms at roughly the same price they’d been paying at the grocery store and use it to feed approximately 100 students and staff in the program. “You know where the food is coming from, and it’s supporting the community,” Ackerman said. A partnership with Innovative Ag has also brought microgreens into not only the cafeteria at the facility, but also the classroom. On Wednesday, ...

Will Hillary Clinton's Education Policy Break From Obama's in a Huge Way? 9.9.2016 Mother Jones
Before Hillary Clinton gave her speech at the Democratic National Convention in July, organizers fired up the crowd with a video extolling President Barack Obama's key policies: health care reform that extended coverage to an estimated 20 million more people; the $62 billion bailout of General Motors and Chrysler that saved about 1.5 million jobs; the killing of Osama bin Laden. But one major issue was conspicuously missing from the highlight reel of Obama's achievements: education. This glaring omission is just one of many signs that Clinton is distancing herself from Obama's education policies. On her campaign website, Clinton's K-12 page avoids any discussion of testing, accountability, or expansion of charters—the main focuses of Obama's administration. Perhaps most telling, Clinton's choices of advisers signal her attempt to move Obama's test-driven K-12 agenda toward the center. Clinton's K-12 working policy group, according to a Democrat close to the campaign, comprises a mix of teachers' union ...

First day of school for Mountain Village Montessori 7.9.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Inside a lower elementary classroom at Steamboat’s Mountain Village Montessori Charter School Tuesday, students sat in a circle and softly chanted the months of the year and clapped along on their laps. “June, July, August,” the class said in unison, as 7-year-old Soren stood inside the circle and walked around a small candle representing the sun, surrounded by tongue depressors marking the 12 months of the year. Tuesday was not only Soren’s first day of class at Steamboat’s new public Montessori charter school, it was also his seventh birthday, and his new class acknowledged the day with a traditional Montessori birthday celebration. After every walk around the “sun,” Soren showed his classmates a picture of himself. “It’s each year of their life,” explained Head of School Michael Hayes. The new school opened for the first day of class Tuesday, with about 140 preschool through fifth-grade aged students. In Montessori schools, students are split into mixed-age classrooms rather than following typical ...
