Lola Wiley is a typical 7-year-old: She loves to draw and play with dolls. She likes to shoot off rockets with her dad, sheriff’s deputy Tim Wiley. Her best friend is her older sister Avery.

But when a 104-degree fever kept Lola from enjoying a Saturday morning, her dad knew something was terribly wrong.

“I had never ever seen her asleep at 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning,” he said. Lola had what appeared to be a cold for about two days. “I woke her up and took her temperature. Then I threw my shoes on and put her in the truck and went straight to the urgent care.”


Challenges are strengths at spelling bee

Sam Seymour took second place at this year's California State Junior High Spelling Bee. Submitted
 Aplomb, or self confidence in a demanding situation, is an appropriate description for 13-year-old Samantha Seymour, who prefers to be called Sam. 

It is also the word that robbed her of first place in the California State Junior High Spelling Bee. But Sam, who lives with autism and Asperger’s syndrome, outlasted 48 other eighth-graders in the longest bee in 17 years.

“It wasn’t that stressful,” she said.


Senior Sleuth: College teaches what’s critical about critical thinking

According to Dorothy M. Neddermeyer, Ph.D, “Critical thinking is a term that has become the newest buzzword.” She asks, “Why then have we coined the term, as if it has a new meaning and those who aren’t in the know about what critical thinking is — well, they just aren’t as smart or astute as those who use the term ‘critical thinking.’”

I interviewed Dr. Phil Freneau, who teaches critical thinking at College of the Redwoods, to find the answer to Neddermeyer’s question. The excellent text he uses is “Thinking Critically” by John Chaffee. According to the preface, this textbook was “based on a nationally recognized interdisciplinary program in critical thinking established in 1979 at LaGuardia College (The City University of New York) … drawn from a variety of disciplines such as philosophy, cognitive psychology, linguistics, and the language arts.”
