Opinions: Plus/minus is a plus in the long run

Love it or hate it, the plus/minus system looks like it's here to stay. After a recent study showed that a slight majority of students and a larger majority of teachers approve of the grading system, there is no reason to believe it will be nixed.

Enacted three and a half years ago, the grading system allows teachers to add a plus or a minus when assigning semester grades if they so choose.

Opinions: Halloween revelers: Try a new approach

MAPES: Earlier this week, Thad Starr of Pleasant Hill, Ore., set a record at the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival with his 1,524 lb. gourd. The enormous pumpkin, rivaled in mass only by Jay Leno's head (and flat on one side just like Jay), sold for $6 a pound, coming out to $9,144. That's a whole lot of pie. I can imagine how excited the lucky kid must be who gets to gut that pumpkin with a backhoe and turn in into the world's largest and scariest Jay-o-lantern. They could even make it a glowing orange fort.
