WINTER WEATHER-DEEP FREEZE
BISMARCK, N.D. _ An arctic wave has wrapped parts of the Midwest in numbing cold, sending temperatures plunging and prompting officials to close schools in several states on Friday, but forecasters say the worst may be yet to come. Cold weather advisories were in effect from North Dakota to Ohio, with dangerously cold wind chills that could dip to as low as 45 below zero in northern Wisconsin and Minnesota and to 35 below in parts of northern Illinois and Iowa.

APPLETON, Wis. _ Karen Park still remembers her parents’ political influence growing up. The daughter of two civil rights and peace activists who lived in Washington D.C. in the 1960s, Park was exposed to social movements and the political process early in life.

And those third-grade reading scores mean everything, school officials say, because after third grade, students are not learning to read — they are reading to learn. By Catherine W.
