Englewood’s Dwight Morrow High School to lose state ‘focus’ status


A look at issues facing the City of Englewood. Michael W. Curley, Jr./NorthJersey.com (Photo: Kevin R. Wexler/NorthJersey.com file photo) ENGLEWOOD — After six years as a state-designated “focus” school with achievement gaps between groups of its students, Dwight Morrow High School will shed the status on June 30. The state intervened in the school due to wide proficiency differences between Asian- American and African-American students and is now exiting after the school showed sustainable improvement, according to a letter sent to the district from the acting commissioner of education. “We’re very proud of the fact that we’re moving in the right direction and can show some tangible results,” Superintendent Robert Kravitz said. The results include lowering the proficiency gap between the students and raising the graduation rate for the school from 86.4 percent to 87.3 percent. Kravitz said proficiency data from 2012-13, the year the school was designated a focus…


Colorado teachers rally at Capitol for school funding

Teachers hold placards during a rally outside the state Capitol, Monday, April 16, 2018, in Denver. Teachers from around the state were on hand to demand better salaries as lawmakers under the dome were set to debate a pension reform measure to cut retirement benefits as well as take-home pay. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski) DENVER — Hundreds of public school teachers swarmed the Colorado state Capitol on Monday, shuttering one suburban Denver school district to demand better salaries, as lawmakers were set to debate a pension reform measure that would cut retirement benefits and take-home pay. With the demonstrations, Colorado educators join peers in West Virginia, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Arizona who have staged strikes or high-profile protests in recent weeks to draw attention to what teachers unions see as a growing crisis in the profession. In Colorado the need is especially stark – and apparently at odds with a state economy…


Bill That Would License Pot Lounges Loses in Senate

Social cannabis consumption is still mostly confined to private events in Colorado. Burack told lawmakers that the measure posed "significant enforcement challenges and health and safety risks" for his agency and the public, citing search-and-seizure issues if club members stored illegally obtained cannabis; he also argued that MED officials shouldn’t have to distinguish what refreshments at clubs were or were not infused with cannabis. "This creates challenges for us," he said. "With [federal] oversight, we need to make sure we’re cognizant." CSP Major Steve Garcia, who’d testified against a House bill that would allow dispensaries to apply for tasting rooms during a March 19 committee hearing (that bill passed out of committee) , again raised concerns about impaired driving. "This cascading responsibility creates a public safety issue that adds additional liability and workload on law enforcement and the public," he told the Senate committee. A handful of unlicensed pot clubs…


GFHC: From the Extended Family Tree


As I’ve learned more about my ancestors I’ve also taken some time to follow the branches of the tree down, learning about their siblings’ descendants. I’ve come across some interesting stories; this is part of a recurring series of diaries about distant cousins I never knew. 114 years ago this week, on March 1, 1899, Annie O’Toole Powell died in Brooklyn, New York. She was 41 years old. Annie was the wife of my great-great-great-grandfather Thomas Powell’s brother Robert. Her death, and a few things that followed, would change Robert’s life, and Thomas’s life, significantly. Thomas and Robert Powell were the sons of Henry Powell and his wife, Margaret Gray. Henry and Margaret were born near Belfast in 1817 and 1818. They married young and their first child, Thomas, was born in Ireland in April 1838. They also had two daughters, before leaving Ireland for America. The Powell family arrived…

The entire acreage burned during the March 6, 2017, Starbuck Fire. Barby lost about 30 newborn calves. (Journal Photo by Amy Bickel.) On the morning of March 6, 2017, rancher Bernie Smith was in a hurry. Smith and one of his sons were moving cattle from one wheat pasture to another along the Kansas-Oklahoma border. But the spring chore was happening on one of those days that keeps Smith, also the Englewood, Kansas, fire chief, on alert. The sprawling prairie hadn’t received moisture since an ice storm in January. The grass was dry. Wind gusts of up to 60 mph were expected along with 80-degree Fahrenheit temperatures—nearly 25 degrees above normal. The humidity was low enough, he said in a serious tone, “you could even burn water.” Smith,…
