I agree, the data cited is worrisome. But to castigate school systems everywhere and label them all racist is shameful and completely void of any legally acceptable standard. Racism gets the blame for many of the social ills of this country, and for that matter, the planet, and maybe deservedly so. But to associate it with every problem is lazy and completely irresp...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Streamer fishing remains by far and away the most entertaining form of fishing. The A section fish have lost interest in cannibalistic behavior, but B and C section remain solid. Nymph fishing has been good, but not great on A and B sections and the dry fly fishing remains sporadic. There are pods of risers and a few hatches here and there, but nothing with any consistency. There are still a few pike out and about. I caught one...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Mel Fisher (J.K. Simmons) is a great dad and a successful lawyer who has always hidden the fact that he’s blind. Until, that is, Mel and his wife, Joyce (Jenna Elfman), decide to divorce, and he comes out as sightless and gets a guide dog. That’s sort of a tough pill for his young son, Henry (Eli Baker) — who has been Mel’s de facto guide offspring — to take.

Characters you’ll enjoy spending time with every week. “About a Boy” is based on Nick Hornsby’s novel that inspired the 2002 movie.
