May 7, 2009 By Karen Klinger For kids who would rather study baseball box scores than arithmetic and college students who like analyzing David Ortiz’s swing better than puzzling over physics problems, Andy Andres is something of a dream come true.

Mar 31, 2009 I attended the School Committee’s “meet the candidates for superintendent” forum last night at CRLS. Their search process has narrowed the field to three prospects. Interestingly, none of them hail from beyond Route 128. This may be because of the large number of districts looking at the moment. The consulting firm of Ray and Associates was hired by the Committee to assist in their search. As of... more
Mar 26, 2009 By Karen Klinger If Old MacDonald had a farm, why not the city of Cambridge? As the sustainable-food movement gains in popularity in the United States and Michelle Obama spearheads the creation of a White House vegetable garden, city officials are talking about establishing a farm on some of the 1,200 acres of watershed land Cambridge owns in Lincoln, Weston, Waltham and Lexington. City Councilor... more
Feb 4, 2009 Since I started the petition against ARE, I have realized, more then ever, how much I'm against this development. I have realized how our councilors at large, whom are suppose to represent all cantabridgians, are utterly failing when important matters are before them. I have realized how I have been played by a very smart attorney. But most importantly I have met a lot of my neighbors, people I... more

Nov 25, 2008 I've been teaching the Blogging 101 and Videoblogging Production courses here at CCTV during the past year. I'm thinking about dropping the Blogging 101 course in favor of proposing an Audio Podcasting course for our training program. Would anyone be interested in taking the course is we offered it? I am going to work on a syllabus over the next few weeks. If you're interested in taking the... more
Nov 5, 2008 Governor George Wallace blocking the entrance to the administration building to prevent Vivian Malone and James Hood, both of African descent, from registering to attend the University of Alabama. This picture was taken about a mile away from the segregated whites only public school where I was attending first grade in Tuscaloosa Alabama. An awful lot of good people devoted their lives to ending... more

Jul 25, 2008 Not to toot my own horn (especially since this new tutorial is Colin's brainchild), but today's Web Media Help Session went surprisingly well. My expectations were pretty low, as I heard no one showed up last week; at the very least, I thought maybe I'd get someone set up with an account on but to be perfectly honest I had another project going on in anticipation of three... more
Jul 18, 2008 The final session of the first Radio Journalism class at CCTV met last night. Some students (me, for example!!!) still have work to do on their projects, but they all seem to be coming together very well. After the class, we talked about how great it would be to build out CCR (Cambridge Community Radio, aka the radio station that broadcasts shows on CCTV's television channels), maybe by starting... more
Jul 12, 2008 I’m angry. I’m very angry. While googling the Amigos School to try to post a link to an Aaron Sorkin play being performed in both English and Spanish, I got a link to a post by Fred Baker on the Cambridge Republican City Committee’s blog suggesting that my daughter’s school be blown up. I’m not only angry, I’m stunned. How am I supposed to react to that? Is proposing a terrorist act of such... more
