Teacher Sarah Beachy

School Lets Students Pick Courses, Make Rules
DALE ENTERPRISE - At a new private school in Rockingham County, students are creating their own curriculum. "The philosophy is based on the idea that everyone has a drive to learn within themselves without someone saying, ‘You have to learn this,'" Beachy said. "All day they're thinking, ‘What do I want to do and how do I make it happen?'" Click to read the article and comments.

Titus Peachey

To ban the (cluster) bomb Lancaster resident Titus Peachey has worked for years to try to stop the carnage. Now, says Peachey, who returned earlier this month from a cluster bomb conference in Austria, the world might be getting somewhere. Today, said Peachey, the MCC director of peace education, stockpiles of mines are falling. Even nations that did not sign the treaty, such as the United States, have largely refrained from deploying new mines. The British-based organization estimated that the bombs have killed or injured more than 100,000 people worldwide. Click to read the article By JON RUTTER, Staff writer.

Jeff Peachey

Jeffrey S Peachey, owner of a New York City-based studio for book conservation, spoke about the common structural points in failure of conserving books from late 15th and early 16th Bibles at the L. Tom Perry Special Collections. It is a nightmare for conservators to see a book such as a Victorian Bible with brutal papers and taped all over, Peachey said. The oldest book that Peachey has worked on is a Gutenberg Bible, the first printed book in 1453. Click to read the article by Stella Chu. BYU NewsNet

Clint Beachy

Owner operator Clint Beachy is loading logs on a off highway logging truck. I suspect the loader operators try to see who can build the biggest load. The exceptional big loads are known as Picture Loads, that is when the cameras come out to record the big ones. This picture was taken on the Q.C.Islands off the west coast of B.C.

Lloyd Beachy

Voicing a completely different view, Lloyd Beachy, a former mayor of New London, said the state should either listen to local officials or just stay out of development entirely. He argued that the state has been more of a hindrance than a help at the Norwich Hospital property, the former Seaside Regional Center in Waterford and State Pier and Fort Trumbull in New London.

Roger Beachy

A couple of weeks ago, I heard Roger Beachy, the president of the nonprofit Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, speak about genetically engineered crops.
Beachy is a big name in science, and I was excited to be there, especially during the question and answer hullabaloo after his lecture. For example, Beachy and others want to develop more nutritious subsistence crops for the Third World. Do the poor and hungry have a right to use these technologies? Should the developed world create barriers to their access, legislatively or otherwise? Click to read the complete article by Megan McKenzie in the Corvallis Gazette Times.

Stephen Beachy

Beachy is one of several readers who challenged my suggestion of putting a new stadium in the Gateway area closer to Tampa and Clearwater.
You can't fight City Hall, and supposedly you can't fight Wal-Mart, but I admire the folks in Tarpon Springs for insisting that the corporate retail giant not build on the banks of the Anclote River.

Miriam Beachy on Music,

Does God Only Speak Through Christian Music?
God is not limited to any certain song or anything when He chooses to get our attention. He chose a donkey in the Old Testament to speak to Balaam. For what it's worth here are my thoughts on this subject. - God is not limited to any certain song or anything when to read Miriam's thoughts on music.
