OK, I'm kidding (sort of) with my headline. I'm not really planning to shave my 6-year-old daughter's head. So stop your calls to Child Protective Services.

But I am weary of the daily fight my daughter and I have over her hair. The problem: She wants to brush her own long hair and leave it down. I want to brush it myself and put it up, so it doesn't get into a snarled mess. Yes, I win out every day. I'm the mom. But I am tired of fighting. About. It. Every. Single. Day.

Court officials said of 200 summonses sent recently to residents of Weld County, only 39 reported for their civic duty, so an order was issued by District Judge Roger Klein for court administrators to simply hand out orders demanding immediate jury service to anyone they could find.

Nebraska has seen a lot of turmoil in its child welfare system, yet one thing lamentably has remained unchanged: The state continues to remove a high percentage of children out of troubled homes.

Nebraska has seen a lot of turmoil in its child welfare system, yet one thing lamentably has remained unchanged: The state continues to remove a high percentage of children out of troubled homes. Consider the numbers. In 59 percent of Nebraska child welfare cases, the state Foster Care Office reports, the reason for removal isn't physical abuse; it's a failure to provide for the child's needs, whether physical, educational, medical or emotional. (Physical abuse was the reason last year for removal in 19 percent of cases.)

They're working on perfecting an artificial cow's milk made from a special variety of yeast that has been genetically engineered to produce milk proteins.
