Kellogg Elementary School's walk-a-thon raised $3,000 from pledges for the wells in Maasai Mara, where young girls are currently unable to attend school because they have to walk up to six miles a day to get water, Kellogg officials said.

  • Kellogg Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    My family has had a wonderful experience. My son loves this school. The teachers are caring and supportive and the new principal is focused on both academics and the Arts. We now have a school band and choir. He hired a foreign language teacher and brought Spanish to Kellogg. There is also a renewed commitment to parent engagement and partnership

Fence repair

Can anyone recommend a fence company for the replacement of a wooden fence post?

  • Depending on the post damage it's pretty easy. Pull out the old one,use the same hole head to Home Depot and get a post that's treated so there will be no rot once it's in the ground. Measure the old one and give them those measurements and they'll cut it...

    Depending on the post damage it's pretty easy. Pull out the old one,use the same hole head to Home Depot and get a post that's treated so there will be no rot once it's in the ground. Measure the old one and give them those measurements and they'll cut it exactly for you. Get a small bag of quick setting cement and drop it in the hole,use the hose to put water in that same hole,drop the new post in there and hold it in position level for about 10-20 minutes or prop it up and you're good to go for about 15-20 bucks.

a missed opportunity on 91st St.

After all the water and sewer work along 91st St. this summer, I hoped that the traffic diverter that was temporarily removed at 91st and Leavitt might be replaced with a smarter, more bike friendly design. Nope, same old STOOPID design.

When infrastructure like these traffic diverters gets removed for construction, there should be an opportunity for public input for potential improvement.  We definitely need to see improvement at 93rd and Damen and at 94th and Leavitt whenever water and sewer work reaches those locations.
