Berea College English professor Libby Jones is always looking for innovative teaching ideas and techniques. She found one such method in The Sow’s Ear Poetry Review, edited by Kristin Camitta Zimet. Jones and her poetry students will be using this interactive technique to write haiku poems for visitors on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea.

In this poetry exercise, students come up with a list of five questions, (such as, what lost thing do you miss the most? What is your earliest memory?) They then go out into the community and interface with people at various public locations. Students sit at a table with a sign saying, “Free Poems!” When anyone stops to see what it is about – they ask

McConnell Statement on Obamacare Enrollment Numbers

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement today regarding the Obamacare enrollment numbers and the millions who’ve lost their health plans as a result of the law:

“Even with the administration’s Enron-like accounting, fewer people have signed up for Obamacare nationwide than the 280,000 who’ve already lost their plan in Kentucky as a result of Obamacare mandates. And today’s enrollment announcement will be cold comfort for the millions who’ve lost the coverage they liked and the millions more facing higher premiums. Only in Washington could placing an item in a virtual shopping cart—without even buying it—count as a sale. If private businesses used that standard, online retailers would be poised to announce their best earnings season in American history.”
