  • PE is essential in child development Of course, I loved physical education in school. Not only was PE a welcome break to a day of sitting at a desk absorbing our teachers’ wisdom — and fun time with friends — but it was also a setting where we could learn about our fast-changing bodies through movement.

  • The tires, they are a changing A few weeks ago I was part of a small group that was tasked with designing an hourlong class teaching people how to do something.

  • A day without recess is a day without joy Youngest started school last week, which isn’t really newsworthy, but what we learned the first day of class kind of is. Our elementary school has embraced an initiative called TEAM30 or something like that. The idea is to make kids exercise every day. In order to work an extra 30 minutes of exercise into an already full school day, something had to go. It was recess.

  • Public safety workers close ranks around gay, lesbian colleagues Jason Miller has spent 15 years in a job he loves. He’s an emergency medical technician working two jobs as a first-responder, and he’s training to become a firefighter in Kokomo. Miller loves the reward of helping others, he said, and the camaraderie among people whose inclination is to run toward danger. For police, firefighters and EMTs, he said, backing each other up is “second nature.”

  • Colleagues of indicted sheriff feel the glare of distrust Last Tuesday didn’t go the way Daviess County Sheriff Jerry Harbstreit thought it would.
