Edu-Reads and ? FISH PICS! ?

The California charter bill has become more reasonable with Governor Newsom’s intervention. There’s a huge swath of middle ground upon which both the CTA and CCSA can plant their victory flags.

Talk about using your hot stove time well. This is Kevin Kosar’s daughter. And she’s tying a wooly bugger. Herself. So while it’s not a picture of her with a fish, she’s been featured here before with fish, along with her dad, and a kid tying a fly would be more than good enough anyway […]
