Inside one Colorado middle school's last-ditch effort to save itself by raising scores without test prep

In just weeks, Principal Chadwick Anderson and his team at M. Scott Carpenter Middle School will learn whether three years of hard work have paid off. Colorado’s latest set of test scores, set for release in August, will determine whether the school and 28 others will get to stay open in their current form. The schools have been on the state’s academic watch list for chronic poor performance for five years and have run out of time to improve on their own. Now, if Scott Carpenter’s test scores don’t rise, the school could become one of...

Touch of September - Minnesota Mosquito Season is 34 Days Longer Now Than in the 1980s

A hype-happy national media talking about weather is like watching an excitable puppy with a new toy. Think about it: polar vortex, heat domes, now "corn sweat"? When in doubt make stuff up. I am guilty of routinely disparaging Canada and I take full responsibility for my transgressions. Much of the winter we talk about "Canadian air" as a pejorative, a diss. I wonder if TV meteorologists in Winnipeg or Toronto complain about hot, sweaty "American air" moving in? I should get a research grant and study that for 10 years. htt...

Native American teen faces a year in prison for possessing one gram of weed
