|The Road Not Taken (1916)
by Robert Frost
Thomas Jefferson once said, “I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.”
That quote perfectly describes the Advanced Placement students at St. Mary’s High School. This year’s AP scores are in, and St. Mary’s students again had an impressive showing with the majority of the students scoring three or higher. St. Mary’s Principal Mike Biondini (SMHS ’66) said that in AP exams a score of three is considered passing.

Even before the National Forensic Tournament, the 2011-2012 year had been a successful one for the St. Mary’s High School team.
Before Nationals the team had earned two state championships, one third-place finish at state, the title of Colorado Grande District Champion for the fourth time, and had seven students qualify for Nationals. But the year ended on an even higher note with a St. Mary’s duo finishing in the top five in their division.

Our society has become much more 'social'. Not necessarily the way people used to be social with potlucks and Popsicle's on the front porch or back yard BBQ's. This day and age we are using: text, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Pinterest.
As an author I've always thought in person book signings were the way to draw attention to a new book. I can't remember the last time I walked into a book store and saw an author sitting at a table with his/her book with a pen in hand.…Continue

Children’s picture books are among some of the most prized collectibles. Many don’t survive the wear and tear of childhood…others live on to be passed down from generation to generation.
For me, the value of the book is in the joy each story gives to the children who hear it.
Some collectibles are valued in the millions but the smile on a…

Seeing footage and photos of the Waldo Canyon Fire burning the Southern Front Range was enough to make one's stomach turn. But imagine being an evacuee; having to leave the comfort of your home and most of your possessions behind without assurance that you would see it all again. From there, think about not having friends or relatives to flee to, but instead relying on a makeshift shelter in a school gymnasium, full of strangers in the exact same situation.
Though most evacuees were…Continue
