Disability advocates cheer new federal guidelines on school sports

Lets keep it real - not everyone is equipped physically and/or mentally for all activities. I love basketball! But as a very short person I was never allowed to participate in the sport (even though I tried out for the team). Nor could I manipulate the hurdles very well in track. Does that make me disabled? No - it means that I need to find some other activity that I can participate in - whether it be another physical sport where height is not such an issue or an activity such as the chess club, debate club, etc. We all have different strenghts and weaknesses. As individuals we have to find the niche we fit into and then excel in that activity.

Editorial: Discouraging number

People should not vote just because they can. All who vote should inform themselves with the canidates and issues on the ballot. If your not going to take the responsibility of informing yourself with the canidates or the issues then stay home.
