Linked Up - 4/19/13

April 19th, 2013

This edition of Linked Up is admittedly a bit maudlin and sentimental. As this sentence is typed, there is a manhunt going on in the Boston area, in the days following a heartbreaking tragedy.

Similarly, when talented writers tackle the immense emotion in such situations, it produces brilliant and touching pieces of writing. Which[...]

Wrestling Teams Honor One Of Their Own

December 19th, 2012

Just in time for the holidays, two wrestling teams provided a present for those who appreciate sportsmanship, generosity, kindness and camaraderie.

In fact, the idea came to him while sitting at the memorial service for his pupil Jet Dylan Krumweide. Jet died tragically in a kayak accident in late October. As the Connecticut Post[...]
