Carol Perkins: Educational Advance - Cape Day Fridays

An idea to totally revolutionize Education: Every Friday would be Cape Day. A brilliant idea which occurred to Carol Perkins after receiving a screenprinting order for Capes from a former pupil, Robin McMurtrey, now a teacher at North Jackson Elementary School in Glasgow, KY
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: It is not about tipping - but common decency . Posted October 20, 2013

By Carol Perkins

The idea began with a phone call and a cape.

"Ms. Perkins, can you get me some capes?" asked Robin McMurtrey, NJE teacher and my former student, knowing I would not be surprised she wanted capes for yet another of her many creative endeavors with her fortunate students.

Halloween When I Was A Kid

Growing up on a farm in the depression days of the 1930's, we were fortunate to live in a neighborhood where families did a lot of things together. Our farm was between Wymore and Liberty (Gage County) in southeast, Nebraska.

We had frequent 'gang parties' -- probably the forerunner of pot-luck suppers. Every Halloween, one of the families invited the 'gang' to their place for a scary-spooky evening of fun.

Just Who Will You Be?

By Peg Schaeffer

Every week after I write my Happy Tail I begin planning for the next week's story. This week I was having writer's block and was wracking my brain for a story. On Wednesday one of the horses provided me with one. When we lived in Connecticut I used to buy and sell horses. I had a good reputation since I always tried to be honest and fair and not be the typical horse trader.*
