  • Canadians win skating title, Floridians win dancing title

     
    Congratulations to NEXXICE of Canada for winning the world synchronized skating championship in Zagreb and ending a long Scandinavian stranglehold on the title. And a laurel and hearty handshake to the Miami Heat on its fourth consecutive NBA Dance......
  • Colorful Lake Circuit Judge Jerry Lockett, who sentenced seven men to death, dies

    Colorful Lake Circuit Judge Jerry Lockett, who sentenced seven men to death, dies
    As the body was carried out of the house, retired Tavares lawyer Jerri Blair rose to her feet on the front porch to deliver one final salute as he passed by. She snapped it off just the way former Circuit Judge Jerry T. Lockett liked it, so he'd know...
  • Connecticut Must Retreat From The Shore

    Connecticut Must Retreat From The Shore
    Shore Up Connecticut is a policy mistake. A state loan program named Shore Back Connecticut would make more sense because retreat from the coast is the only viable long-term option. Recent developments in Antarctica have made this crystal clear. As I...
  • Should UConn Have A Hand In State Water Plan?

    The absurdity of Connecticut's water politics stuns me. Yes, we need a comprehensive statewide plan, which explains why state law (Public Act 14-163) requires submission of one to the General Assembly by Jan. 1, 2018. But funding for its creation seems to...
  • 'Undersized' RBs like Eric Cleveland and Jalen Singleton get the short end of the stick

    'Undersized' RBs like Eric Cleveland and Jalen Singleton get the short end of the stick
    When it was time to be measured at Central Michigan's football camp last summer, Bishop Moore tailback Jalen Singleton stepped up, straightened his torso and leaned toward the tape measure fixed to the wall. It began at 5 feet 6 inches. Singleton's head...
  • The Prospector: Kickers getting extra work hoping to land college scholarships

    The Prospector: Kickers getting extra work hoping to land college scholarships
    At most high school football practices, there will be a person off to the side, by himself, kicking a couple of balls around and chasing them down. He's anonymous. He may join the squad at the end of practice for sprints. He'll be in the huddle for the...
  • We're Teaching To The Test — Not Students' Futures

    We're Teaching To The Test — Not Students' Futures
    I'm worried that we're no longer teaching students how to think critically or to write well. Everything I'm hearing from teachers, students and parents suggests that, with the standardized testing epidemic sweeping through our nation's public schools,...
  • Cashing In On Climate Change — Wanna Bet?

    The reality of climate change has penetrated common culture, but the gravity of the situation has not. I have an example so egregious that I decided to share it with you. "Beat the heat" is a catchy phrase commonly used by advertisers to draw...
  • Science Vs. Beliefs On Creationism, Climate

    Throughout the world, the forces of religious fundamentalism are challenging the forces of secular democracy. In the Middle East, the conflict boils into civil war. In the United States, the conflict merely simmers beneath recent Supreme Court rulings...
  • Politics Catches Up With Climate Change

    Finally, the federal climate watchdogs got it right. The just-released U.S. National Climate Assessment avoids pie-in-the-sky abstractions like "saving the planet before it's too late" and instead concentrates on regional changes affecting our lives...
  • Honorary Degrees Are A Dubious Bit Of Pomp

    Another college commencement season has come and gone. In retrospect, these are really odd affairs. The academic regalia is medieval. The solemn processions and homilies are liturgical. The speeches are futuristic, each being a verbal launching pad for...
