Bob Dunning: Research shows kids should sleep in

WORDS OF WISDOM … a large thank you goes out to School Board trustee Shelia Allen from parents of school-age children in this town for her willingness to suggest that a later start to school might be of great benefit to local teenagers … too bad folks at the District are giving the concept the cold shoulder …

As Linda Mathew so perfectly put it in her letter to the editor, “If starting school 30 minutes later would improve the health (better rest), well-being (less depression and substance abuse), performance (higher SAT scores) and safety (up to 70 percent fewer car accidents) of our teenagers, what more could there possibly be to discuss.” … indeed, Linda pretty much said it all …

It would be nice if our esteemed School Board takes this matter up when all the new members are sworn in and ready for action …

BATTLE OF THE BLUE AND GOLD … one of the most intriguing college football openers, at least for followers of UC Davis, will take place Saturday afternoon in Forest Grove, Oregon, where the Pacific University Boxers take on the College of Idaho Yotes … on the Boxer sideline will be head coach and former Aggie Keith Buckley, while on the Yote sideline will be head coach and former Aggie Mike Moroski … both have recently resurrected long dormant programs …

Buckley arrived in Forest Grove in 2010, taking over a program that had been idle for 19 years … last year Buckley produced a 7-3 campaign that for a while had the Boxers in the national rankings for Division III … Moroski, in his first year, takes over a team that has not played an intercollegiate game in 37 years, but had over 100 athletes show up on the first day of practice … optimism runs high at both schools as the 2014 season opens … should be an interesting matchup … Go Ags …

FRO YO HEADING SOUTH? … with Davis frozen yogurt emporiums closing right and left in the recent past, speculation is rampant that the frozen yogurt craze has run its course … nothing could be further from the truth …

As with most business ventures, the mousetrap theory still holds … the bottom line is that Yolo Berry, just across the street from Central Park, has clearly built the better mousetrap when it comes to frozen yogurt … may it continue to thrive, toppings and all …

DEADLINE LOOMS … yes, the Contest to Replace the Above-Pictured Columnist has reached its end stage … entries are due this Monday, September 8, by 5 p.m. … given that it is now Friday, that’s not especially onerous as deadlines go … when your editor tells you she needs a complete rundown of Davis’ proposed water rates in the next 15 minutes, now that’s a deadline …

Depending on when you’re reading this, we’re looking at approximately 72 hours between now and Monday afternoon … if you write just 10 words an hour, every hour, between now and then, you will easily be within the suggested length of 400 to 800 words, which is not strictly enforced anyway … while fame and fortune are not guaranteed, they are certainly a distinct possibility if history is our guide …

The Large Judging Body has just slipped a pair of Dollar Tree reading glasses onto his uncommonly beautiful face … he awaits reading material …

— Entries to the Contest to Replace the Above-Pictured Columnist are due on Monday, Sept. 8, at 5 p.m. Entries, between 400 and 800 words, can be emailed to bdunning@davisenterprise.net and should include a short biography and mug shot of the author.
