Living with Children with John Rosemond: Public-school discipline policies tie teachers' hands

A first-grade teacher asks what she can do about a girl in her class who is completely undisciplined. After nearly two months of this teacher's best efforts, the child's behavior is no better. She is defiant and aggressive toward other kids, and often gets out of her seat and crawls around on the floor. Several years ago she taught the girl's older sister, who also had numerous discipline issues. The home is chaotic, so the teacher doubts she can expect much - if any - help from the parents.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Foolproof apple crisp for the love of fall

On my ride to work on the first day of October, I turned on the defrost in my car for the first time this year. When I got to work, I turned off my air conditioning, relishing in the cool, rainy temperatures outside. This season, I've already enjoyed a few weekend brunches on my screened-in back porch, easy like a Sunday morning. I'm always sad to see summer go, but the food of fall and the excitement of the holidays quickly propel me forward.

Simpson, Bowles: Barrow is 'brave'

Our nation needs to get its fiscal house in order, and to do so citizens must fully demand leaders who are willing to put partisan differences aside and come together to present the American people with honest solutions and consensus proposals that put the national interest ahead of special interests. That is why we were so disheartened to learn that John Barrow is being criticized for his support of a budget based on the plan recommended in 2010 by a bipartisan majority of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform which we co-chaired (Simpson-Bowles Commission).
