MORRIS - Bison fans and North Dakota State University alumni (from left) Tom Noel, Shane Decker, and Max Martin are gearing up for the team's second straight appearance in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision title game on Saturday. The three proud Bison fans pose by a stuffed bison head now on display at Willie's Super Valu. Decker owns the bison head. The bison head came by way of his uncle, Decker said, who is a bison farmer in Milnor, N.D. The bison head often used at tailgating parties for NDSU football games. However, this is the bison's first retail appearance.
You know what the problem with freedom of speech is? People use it. Yet far too few realize that the right to free speech carries with it the responsibility to respect others who exercise their freedom of speech in opposition to you. Jeff Miller has the right to express his thoughts on same-sex marriage and the proposed constitutional amendment that would have defined marriage as being between one man and one woman. That Jeff Miller also serves on the Morris Human Rights Commission does not exempt him from his right to express an opinion.
MORRIS - First graders at Morris Area Elementary will have Spanish as part of their curriculum this year. The Morris Area School Board voted Monday to expand their bilingual program into the first grade. The program has been part of the preschool and kindergarten classes and the Board heard a request to continue the program into the first grade at their July meeting. At Monday's meeting, Superintendent Scott Monson said that he supports the idea of expanding the bilingual program, but was not recommending that the board implement it this year.
Members of the Morris Area School Board spent the better part of a half-hour discussing the cell phone policy at their meeting Monday. The proposed new policy states that students cannot have their cell phones with them during class. During the previous school year students could have their cell phones in their pocket or in their backpacks/purses. The new language requires students to leave their cell phones in their lockers prior to going to their first class. Students would be allowed to check their cell phones in between classes and during lunch.
