This hiring of part-time faculty has been going on for decades. It's a way for colleges and universities to save money on pay and benefits.

I can't believe she would ever consider running for Reno mayor.

She will never, ever, ever live down that infamous confrontation with police about three years ago:

Jung then tried to enter the residence to ostensibly check on the welfare of any occupants, but was restrained by police officers.

A physical altercation then ensued, with Jung reportedly yelling at officers, “Get your fucking hands off me! Don’t you know who I am? I’m the fucking county commissioner.”

Jung was placed in a wristlock, handcuffed and later put in a patrol car for about 10 minutes, according to the police report.

Police officers on scene reported that Jung had the “odor of an alcoholic-based beverage.”

Jung hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of winning.

They just don't give up. Newark teachers are on the ropes, with "reformers" hoping to replace them with TFA know-nothings.

This is a fight to the death, folks.

Obituary: Maria von Trapp, only 99, last of the Trapp Family Singers of Sound of Music fame, died in Vermont.

Maria von Trapp was the last surviving member of the seven original Trapp Family Singers made famous in "The Sound of Music." She was portrayed as Louisa in the 1959 Broadway musical and a 1965 film, which won the Oscar for best picture.

She was the third child and second-oldest daughter of Austrian Naval Capt. Georg von Trapp and his first wife, Agathe Whitehead von Trapp. Their seven children were the basis for the singing family in the musical and film.

"The Sound of Music" was based loosely on a 1949 book by von Trapp's second wife, also Maria von Trapp, who died in 1987. It tells the story of an Austrian woman who married a widower with seven children and teaches them music.
