Should homework be banned? One teacher may have had the right idea


TEXAS’ The new school year just recently got under way, but homework is already a hot topic. Some are wondering: Should it be banned?

Was first published. First here as indicated.

Fort Worth, Texas, teacher Brandy Young decided to try something new. A note from her to parents said, “After much research this summer, I am trying something new. Homework will only consist of work that your student did not finish during the school day. There will be no formally assigned homework this year. Research has been unable to prove that homework improves students performances. Rather, I ask that you spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success. Eat dinner as a family, read together, play outside, and get your child to bed early.’

Inked into history: longstanding studio reflects on evolution of tattoo industry

Jake Farris has seen the evolution of tattoo culture in Fort Wayne firsthand as owner of Studio 13 in Fort Wayne.

The walls of Studio 13 on Coliseum Blvd. are filled with art and oddities as eclectic as the designs the tattooers create on a daily basis.

Tattoo culture is no longer reserved for just veterans and biker gangs. The business of tattooing has also found a way to break away from the niche market of years past to become havens of art and self-expression for all kinds of people.

The tattoo industry in Indiana as we know it today took quite a while before it was deemed acceptable not only by the general public, but the Indiana General Assembly. As individual states started overturning legislation from the 1960s that had banned the practice of tattooing, Indiana took its sweet time, becoming the 47th state in 1997 to finally legalize it.
