    On a federal level, I’m hopeful that now President Obama has won another term and will never run for re-election again, that we’ll find the necessary cooperation between the president and Congress to avert the fiscal cliff in the next few weeks and to address important issues more constructively going forward.

  • Marshdale Elementary class streamed live as part of Discovery Education program

    Assistant No. 7 looked a little nervous as she was called to the front of the room. And the trepidation was not unwarranted — she was about to appear live in front of an audience of hundreds.

    For a third-grader, that’s big-time.
