Judy Seckler IOWA -- American College Testing has developed a free informational poster to give teachers and students an explanation of what ACT grades mean. The poster is part of ACT's "Standards for Transition," a set of instructional guides that translate ACT scores into descriptions of student skills in English, reading, mathematics and science. "Students can use the standards to identify knowledge and skills they likely have and those they need to develop," said Sherri Miller, ACT's director of elementary and secondary school programs.

Then do I have some good news for you: Today, for the first time ever, I'm publishing the "A Word, Please" Holiday Grammar Gift Guide for the word nerds, grammar geeks and even the linguistically challenged recipients on your list.

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who were taught clear, specific rules for making possessives of singular words ending with "s" and those who weren't. And, hands down, the luckier ones are in the latter group. That's because, contrary to what many teachers and even style books will tell you, there are no clear, specific rules for forming possessives of words like "boss," "Thomas" and "Jesus." This is something that Barbara in Burbank has just learned the hard way. "One that drives me crazy is the Los Angeles Times's (NOT The Los Angeles Times')

Standing on top of a 350-foot pile of trash, about 30 city residents and employees got an inside look at the repercussions of their waste Saturday during a tour of Scholl Canyon Landfill. A pair of engineers from the Sanitation Districts of Los Angles County guided the tour, explaining the standard procedures of bringing waste into the facility, organizing it, then compacting it in a way that allows the landfill to collect natural gas for power generation. “The idea was to get all the residents we could and raise awareness for people in the city about where their garbage goes,” said Cathy Schechter of Green Team, which sponsored the free event along with the sanitation districts and the Coalition for a Green Glendale.

It sure seemed like a reasonable question, but little did she know there was no hope of a reasonable answer. "Is it Agnes' or Agnes's?" a user on the Writers.net message board wanted to know. In the world of grammar, punctuation and style, people ask questions like this all the time. Is there a comma before the "and" in a list? Does punctuation go inside or outside the quotation marks? Is it true you can't use "nauseous" to describe feeling ill? And the questioners all have the same problem: They all assume that out there, somewhere, is a clear answer.

I?ve been reading a lot about healthcare lately, but I?ve also been reading a lot about health care. At the same time, I read about local nightlife, and I even read about local night life. That?s because I do a lot of newspaper copy editing, but I also do some magazine copyediting. Somehow, it all turns out OK, and at times even okay.

State Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge) has been named to three important education-related committees on Capitol Hill, putting her in a prime position as she prepares to guide legislation down winding paths where allies are needed at every curve. A former public school teacher and administrator, Liu was already chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee before the latest round of committee assignments last week. While Dan Schnur, director of USC's Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, said the appointments wouldn't directly impact the senator's ability to get education legislation passed, they couldn't hurt.

Tensions were high Thursday at the first meeting of the committee charged with guiding the dissolution of Glendale's redevelopment agency. Board members were befuddled by their role and were unsure if they had the expertise to make decisions about the nearly $113 million Glendale wants to cover contracts through the end of the year. “We're confused,” said Carl Raggio, former Glendale mayor and chairman of the so-called Oversight Board. Added to the mix was some head-butting between the city and Los Angeles County appointees.

If you've ever watched a man eating lobster, a number of things might have run through your mind - anything from “that looks delicious” to “thank heavens they gave that guy a bib” to “they should have given him a poncho.” But it probably never occurred to you just how close you were to mortal danger - how just the finest of fine lines was the only thing standing between you and a homicidal monster. Yet as you stood watching the man eating lobster, you were just one little hyphen away from a man-eating lobster.

So you're going to the Rose Parade. Many choices lie ahead. Buy a seat near the heart of the television spectacle at Orange Grove and Colorado boulevards, or rough it on free sidewalk space further down the parade route? Take a chance with street parking, or reserve a spot in advance? Brave the freeways? Better know which ramps are closed. The Rose Parade is expected to draw approximately 800,000 people to the streets of Pasadena on Jan. 2, some camping overnight to reserve a sidewalk spot.

The financial crisis that has led the state to virtually abandon the master plan that guaranteed high-quality and affordable (originally free) education at all levels of higher education has had particularly harsh repercussions at Glendale Community College. As a consequence of the crisis, we have been told that the mission of the college will inevitably change. Members of the college Faculty Guild have always considered that mission to provide the best possible education to students, with the belief that learning doesn't stop here, but rather is a lifelong pursuit.
