As seniors in high schools across the country approach graduation and fateful decisions about their future, it’s interesting to note that more students than ever are continuing their educations in college. It’s not surprising, as the world economy is becoming more knowledge driven and the prospects for labor-intensive jobs diminish, though the difference in wage opportunities are worth careful study by all prospective graduates.
What a difference a week can make. Two weekends ago I wore short pants while outside doing yard work. A few days later it started snowing, and it continued to snow on and off overnight until we had three or four inches of the white stuff at our house in Middlebury. Last weekend I broke out the shorts again as the temperatures climbed into the high 70s and 80s.
