It takes a community college
On Monday morning, one piece of Senator Creigh Deeds' community college plan will be voted on in the House of Delegates. Creigh's bill will help Virginians who attend community college to continue their pursuit of higher education at a four-year college or university by expanding the community college transfer program. This bill improves our transfer credit program by extending it to students who have earned 60 college credits, but have yet to obtain an associate's degree.
Sign the petition - tell your delegate to support Virginia students and families and to help grow our economy.
Below is my first post on Coarse Cracked Corn. It remains a good description of what's happening. I look forward to your comments, but really don't give a cluck if you agree, disagree, or want to chop the chicken's head off. Most of this pecking around is just me crowing.
Coarse cracked corn is chicken feed - 8% protein, 2.50% fat, and 2.75% fiber. Good stuff made at mills right here in the Shenandoah Valley around 1900. Coarse Cracked Corn, the blog, will be a little like that - pecking around at history, news, and current events in the region. A little grain in, lots of manure out, eggs for breakfast, and a chicken in every pot.
I have no idea where this blog will go or how fast it will get there. Time will tell.
