Grandparent admendments

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

If you had the chance to read last week’s column you will know that there is a “ground swell” of support for a Grandparents Bill of Rights. We touched on several issues affecting us grandparents.
Soliciting some comments, I was pleasantly surprised with many received. Some of these had never occurred to me. Before sharing some, here is what we mentioned last Sunday.
In addition to the preamble stating our “rights” as grandparents, we should be allowed to visit when we wish without considering the schedules of the parents. (I trust that you know that this column is presented tongue-in-dentures, er uh, tongue-in-cheek.) We grandparents should not have to consider any inconvenience to the parents.

RHS baseball team sets ‘Derby’ Monday

Fundraiser for program to be held at Bearcats’ diamond

Ruston High School’s baseball team gets in the spring playing mood Monday when the program’s annual “Home Run Derby” is held at the Bearcats’ diamond located on Ball Park Road.
The derby is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. and is open to the general public. Each player (freshmen, junior varsity, varsity) will receive 10 pitches to see how far they can hit the baseball. The longest ball will qualify for the fundraising effort of the program (example: if a player hits one 300 feet and had a sponsor for 10 cents per foot, the result would be a $30 donation to the program).

Tech, GSU: Signees’ names to file for future

in

Just once, at a National Signing Day luncheon or press conference, I want to hear a head coach say one of the following things:
• “Without a doubt, this is the worse recruiting class I’ve ever had. It’s bad.”
• “The players we signed this year, they’re the slowest bunch I’ve ever seen. I’ve already instructed our staff to see if we can order some of those old-fashioned sundials to see just how slow they really are.”

Celebrating 100 days, Valentine’s

Kindergarten
The month of January has been such a busy one for the Glen View Kindergarten students. The students are becoming familiar with different types of books and texts. We have been enjoying reading our books on our own and have begun writing and illustrating short stories.
The students have benefited from all the January/February math activities and wonderful hands-on activities learning numbers one to 20. One of the favorite activities for the students was making predictions on if the groundhog would see his shadow.
