"My Bid" by Joe Biddle

Foster is the bell cow for Houston

Any NFL team with playoff goals has to have important individual pieces.

On offense, you have to have a solid quarterback who can make all the throws and read defenses.

Is there an October lull?

I have liked this October. The week of rain probably hurt the bowhunting to some extent. Early in the season, I had predicted we might set and archery kill record.

Now, I am not so sure. But except for the one week (which I avoided - more about that later), the weather was about as good for hunting as you could ask.

A guide for my boys...whether they need it or not.

A guide for my boys...whether they need it or not.

As of Thursday, September 25th I've been on this earth four decades. That day usually gives me the opportunity to reflect. 40 seems so grown up. 40 is the deadline for having your life in order. Over the years I've looked to friends in their 40's as my own personal Dalai Lama; full of wisdom and experts at living a life full of intent. But the closer I inched to this decade the more I began to realize it wasn't that all of my Dalai Lama's were given the wisdom gene much like someone born with red hair or freckles. Instead they embraced the "what is" and tossed the "never will be." They didn't, like I assumed, wake up on the first day of their 40th year with a brand new perspective that was delivered while they slept. They learned through trial and error, just like me and eventually my children will. Sometimes it takes a 40 something's opinion or insight to make people realize that just because Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing it doesn't mean it's the best choice for you. And while there's plenty of mistakes in my future, I wanted to share a list of a few of the lessons I've learned as a helpful guide for my children.

This is the time of the year that I call the " inbetweens ", where it is still too warm here, but not cool enough where our winter birds will start showing up. Just about the only thing here is our regular all the time species, that you can find here around your feeders.

Pay scale concerns raised for SLPs in WC Schools

I am writing in regard to the recent e-mail that I received from Mary Ann Sparks, director of Human Resources for Wilson County Schools, regarding the new pay scale that will be implemented for the 2014-2015 school year. I want to take a minute to advocate for our profession and the reasons why I feel like a base salary of $45,500 for a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) with no pay bumps, increases, etc., is unfair and not an appropriate pay rate for our profession.
