One of the highlights of the school year (and a great way to end it) is the mock trials, put on by Jim McNairy’s government classes.

Kinda like Wrigley Field…

Written on April 26, 2009 at 3:19 am, by

In Chicago, they schedule Cubs games at Wrigley in the middle of the day for two reasons: One, that’s when baseball is supposed to be played, and two, then people can skip work & go watch ’em. Today, you can too – the Friday Harbor Wolverines baseball team plays at 2:45pm here against Orcas at  Continue Reading

Dancing in the street….

Ever since I saw the end of Slumdog Millionaire, I’ve been wishing we could have everybody dance next to the ferry landing (since we don’t have a train station to dance in.)
