The increase in sickness among students and teachers is causing problems for schools that are already short-staffed, says School District 75 Superintendent Angus Wilson. Pearce says that as a bigger school, Mission Secondary is more well-equipped to deal with large numbers of absences. However, the length of absences creates more strain on both students and teachers. Student absences are “up notably” at ESR Elementary, while Christine Morrison Elementary had 18 per cent of students missing and Stave Falls Elementary 15 per cent. Windebank Elementary has a slight increase in staff absences with normal student numbers, while Albert McMahon Elementary is “okay” but had more students with flu-like symptoms.

With the 2022 General Election officially less than two weeks away, many candidates are using this opportunity to make some last-minute stops in communities across the state. Pam Anderson, the Republican candidate for Colorado Secretary of State, and Republican State Treasurer candidate Lang Sias both visited the Royal Gorge Republican Central Committee headquarters during a stop in Cañon City on Tuesday. She then went on to serve eight years as the Republican clerk and recorder for Jefferson County, an office that is term-limited. People want to know that the election process, and the person running the process, can be trusted and fair, she said. Sias, who lives in Arvada, also hopes to unseat his Democratic opponent, Dave Young, for Colorado State Treasurer.1 month ago Canon City Daily Record

Swansea City midfielder Ollie Cooper fulfilled a dream by getting on the scoresheet in a south Wales derby victory over Cardiff City. I’m still all over the place, it’s something that I've been dreaming about for a long time. “Every goal is special, but to get it against Cardiff, especially the way I scored, is massive. We kept working on it and kept passing it around and the chances came.
