ERDMAN SINGLE-PARENT BILL
ALSO RESPECTS DIVORCED PARENTS
Ooh. Another reason to like Sen. Phil Erdman's LB 101, proposed this session in the Nebraska Unicameral: it would give divorced parents much-needed rights in directing their children's educations, just as it would aid single parents who want to homeschool. Single parents just have 'way more on their plate than to have to battle educrats over pointless regulations. This bill should have been law years ago. Let's hope it flies through.
WESTERN DOUGLAS COUNTY BOOSTERS
GIVE 750 DICTIONARIES TO KIDS
Kudos to 28 businesses, civic organizations and individuals who combined to pay for 750 dictionaries for each third-grader in the public and private schools in Bennington, Elkhorn, Waterloo and Valley in western Douglas County. Love the project name: "Words For Thirds." The sponsoring V.E. Grange organization has been doing this for four years. That's the kind of thoughtful, practical help kids really need. Kudos!
