The name and the photograph of the cop-killer HAVE been all over the news for the past week, XBC. Check out the websites for the NY Daily News and the NY Post if you want. Heck... Google it, Yahoo, Bing, whatever... it's NOT a difficult story to find. (I am certainly not going to type the killer's name here, because that guy does not deserve any sort of notoriety at all. It's Officer…

So, OK, "the media" thinks that stuff matters. Good for them. I can't help what some reporter (or their editor) may think, and neither can you (unless you get a job as a news editor, and then you get to decide which stories get covered & how they get reported). Fortunately, we DO have the deductive ability and the free will to pick and choose the things that we decide to accept as "fact", AYHSMB.…

The media specifically hid the race of peeps of the knockout game and police/da's routinely refuse to name black crimes against whites as hate crimes but have no problem doing that to whites at the drop of a hat. If you can't see that the media in this country has an agenda and a narrative they are pushing then you are blind at best. The false campus rape crisis should show you this as well…

So... again... What's the point? Simply that bias exists in the news media?? OK, absolutely it does; there always has been bias and there always will be; that goes back to the earliest newspapers. The reason for that is because human beings report the news, and human beings do have biases. Until that changes (which it never will), yes, media bias will be a thing that happens. Don't…

So why don't you tell us why it matters when a black man is shot by a white cop???? Dozens of headlines and lead sentences start with those facts so why don't they start al stories the same way? You don't have to answer that really because we already know the answer. Most newsrooms have adopted a policy of not identifying race when preps are black. When black mobs were beating and…

Hannibal Library read from the start

11 months, 3 weeks ago from Hannibal Library

Based on the conviction that parents are a child's first and most important teachers

Hannibal Free Public Library is delighted to host a program for our parents that has been praised across the state - READ from the START. Presented by the Missouri Humanities Council, READ from the START is based on the conviction that parents are a child's first and most important teachers, and that the love of books and stories begins very early in a child's life.

The energetic and interactive two-session program explores seven great children's books and many reading techniques that parents can use to engage their young children. The parent-only evening uncovers the wonderful world of books and stories through reading, singing, acting, games, crafts and more.  At the conclusion of READ from the START, parents take home the seven titles they have explored during the program for free.

The program will be held on the library's 3rd floor on Monday, January 27th, and Monday, February 3rd, at 6:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Childcare will be provided in the Children's Room on the 1st floor.  Space is limited; please call the library at 573-221-0222 to register.  Hannibal Free Public Library is located at 200 South 5th Street in Hannibal.

Organizations across Missouri have called READ from the START innovative, valuable and transformational.

"The families were totally engaged in the RFTS program.  I heard families speak about how much they had learned.  They were very excited about RFTS."
~Early Head Start, Sedalia

"The facilitator's presentation was EXCELLENT!  Teens were genuinely interested in the educational and entertaining aspects of this program." 
~Truman Medical Center Start Right Teen Program, Kansas City

"This was a great experience for the teens.  It was a joy for me to watch the interaction of the teens with the facilitator.  It appeared that they were learning a lot on how to read to their babies.  They were also very excited to get the books.  Obviously they would never be able to afford such a library on their own at this point in their lives."

~ Parents as Teachers/Manual Career & Technical Center

"Parents love the interactivity, especially being read to by someone." 

~Ferguson-Florissant Parents as Teachers, Ferguson

"Parents love the laughter and animation of the presenter, and like to share their own experiences."

 - Rosebud Head Start, Rosebud
