Get in shape? Well, not in this weather

Like most middle-aged people, I’ve made sporadic attempts to “get in shape” and “drop a few pounds.” (And by a few, I mean 20).
I’ve tried everything from long-distance bike riding to Wii Fit and Tae Bo.
A few years ago, I read somewhere that the best “fat-burning” exercises are those in which you bear your own body weight, such as walking or running, as opposed to swimming or bicycling.

ECFE open house

The Early Childhood Learning Center, the new addiiton onto the Lincoln Junior High School, held an open house on Friday, and the attendance by young families as well as the curious was impressive. ECFE/SE and Learning Readiness staff eagerly showed off their new rooms that were opened to students in early January. Above, teachers had an opportunity to talk with parents about how the rooms are being used, while youngsters got some hands-on experience, like Bentlee Ondrachek and his mother, Nicole, at right.
