Ways to help children, families under study

Grandparents are raising their grandchildren, they have very little technical skills and have a hard time helping the students with schoolwork due to these issues. How can educators and agency personnel help students and families in this situation?

By Linda Waggener


Dr. Michael Ford, Superintendent of Russell County Schools, and Tracy Aaron, Health Education Director, Lake Cumberland District Health Department, were among the leaders of the Kentucky Youth Advocates' Bounce Coalition workshop held virtually this spring.

The mission was to discover more ways to provide help to children in adverse situations and help families bounce back. The COVID-19 pandemic caused many children in school to lose ground.

Letter: Cut one open to see if puffball

Marie Freeman suggests the mystery plant might be species of puffball mushroom. She writes:
Lycoperdon pyriforme is one of only a few puffballs that grow on wood, which makes it fairly easy to identify. Other distinguishing features include the fact that its outer surface is only finely spiny, with spines that usually wear off; and the long white mycelial strings attached to its stem, which is often pinched off at the base--resulting in the pear-shaped ("pyriform") overall appearance that gives the species its name.

You could take one and cut it open to see the inside it would tell you if it was a puffball species of fungus. It's hard to tell by the picture but I assume that's what it probably is. The world of fungus :-) I say there's a chance even if it is a puffball that it might have the spores in the center now and more brown. And in its prime it would've looked almost like a marshmallow or mozzarella cheese. Would be interesting to see a picture of one cut in half or several.

Letter: Mystery plant could be Squawroot

Sara Sproles writes:
Possibly Squawroot. Little hard to tell from the picture.
Comments re: Mystery plant needs identification

Thank you Sara! Looking into the name at this link, it appears similar -- we'll leave it to Miss Donna Rieder to make the final decision as to whether the plant is indeed squawroot or not.
