We made a mistake in an earlier version of this story. The United Methodist Women will not be making big rocks, but Bierocks, which Dianne Ellenberger said is "a German recipe with a mixture of fried hamburger, cabbage, onion and seasonings with a dough wrapped around it and baked."

That sounds more delicious than big rocks.

Sorry for the mistake.

Board passes new food guildlines despite dissenter

An extra recess sounds like a great idea. My niece just finished with elementary school and is now going into middle school. She is having trouble wrapping her brain around the fact that there will be no more recess. I say give them more recess. The more the better.

Thank you for your input. Proofreading is done a little differently at desotoexplorer.com. Because it is a one-man show, some of the proofreading is done by the editor of the Baldwin City Signal. In order for him to proofread a story, it has to be posted first. It's kind of silly that way. That doesn't excuse me from not proofreading things before I post it, but he will catch things I don't.

Of course, users are always allowed to send me a note at editor@desotoexplorer.com if they see anything wrong in an article.

And I agree that it won't hurt the kids to get a little more nutrition information from the school. After all they are there to learn and kids learn a lot more than the three Rs at school so you might as well teach them about nutrition.

And it's something that they will bring back home with them. I remember during a fairly recent city council meeting, a parent talking about how their child won't allow recyclable materials to go into the trash. Just imagine how they can transform a family's diet with the right information.

Wible gets first win against Paola

I'm sorry you feel that way. I know the sports coverage has been pretty sparse since the paper was shut down and the sports writer let go. We now depend on parents or in the case of the story above, coaches for sports information. The De Soto High coaches and the school's athletics director understand the situation. They know if they would like something posted they need to send it to me. Otherwise, because there is no longer a sports writer to attend any of the games, the story won't be published.

If you would like to write updates on the boy's baseball team please send it to me.

While I'm not sure how often she will get on the computer to see her work, I'm sure she's glad people are still reading her column. I'll let her know when I pick up this week's column.
