The first day of school is always bittersweet. As a parent you look forward to it because it gets the kids out of your hair for a few hours and gets them busy but at the same time the transition is hard.

By Percentage, Lewiston-Auburn Schools Are Less Funded Than Other Towns

I don't know all of the answers, nor do I pretend to have the answers. Last Tuesday Auburn residents, like other municipalities' residents, voted on school budgets and other town or city issues. I voted yes for 6.9 school budget increase, which I know would result in a tax increase. The proposed increase was voted down by 60% of the voters. OK, for Auburn it's back to the drawing board.

Mr. Doiron waves from atop the Chelsea School roof

Chelsea Principal Andrew Doiron Spends a Day on the Roof….For the Kids….In 80 Degree Weather….With Long Sleeves! [AUDIO]

I've got to hand it to the guy. As an administrator, he clearly leads by example, showing the kids two important things. First and foremost, when you make a promise, you follow through. Secondly, don't take yourself so seriously you alianate those you're trying to lead. Mr. Doiron kept his word and showed the kids he wasn't too good to pay up....even if it meant spending the entire school day on a hot roof!

The NFL Draft + Kids in Gym Class

While taking Justin to school this morning he asked me what a draft was. I first thought of the military from the pre-Vietnam era, but no, he was asking about the NFL draft. I told him it was like when you're in gym class and the gym teacher assigns team captains and the captains pick the teams from the class.

No School in Lisbon Today Due To Flat Tires on Buses

OK, maybe I chuckled when I read this, but for whoever is responsible I’m sure there will be punishment of some kind if they’re caught. There was no school today in Lisbon because someone or some people let the air out of the tires on the school buses. There were 23 flattened tires on the 15 school buses.

Jon James Shares His Love of Reading and Seuss on Read Across America Day, Friday in Randolph

NOTHING makes me happier than the innocence of children, their honest interpretation of the world around them (and the people in it), their willingness to learn new things and eagerness to share what they know. Suddenly, I want to be a school teacher of pre-K through second grade. It's kind of ironic that, in my career field, I often act the age of those I want to teach. They'd be more my peers than my students. But, I digress.

Thank You Mr. and Ms. Meteorologists! You Fooled Them and They Canceled School! [VIDEO]

What a close call today for the buses. Had they been on the roads for just another 5 or 6 hours, they might have had some snow to contend with! Good thing Mother Nature can't pull one over on us Mainers, huh?
