Niagara mortgage agent to judge best in breed at prestigious Westminster Dog Show

He says the harshest critic will be the peanut gallery.

"You're judging a dog and then [in] this instance the world is watching," said Dainard.

He says if you just arbitrarily choose a dog, you're setting yourself up for failure, potentially degrading your reputation as a judge.  

"I just really think that if judges are kind of mindful of that, I think a majority of us are, you're just going to pick the dog that is truly the best dog on the day," said Dainard.

How to judge a dog

When it comes to fairly judging dogs, Dainard says each kennel club has a recognized breed standard that describes what the ideal dog in that breed looks like.

"I just want to do the best job that I can and be as informed as I can," said Dainard.

He says the judges have to be well versed.

"The breed standard is obviously the bible for which describes how the ideal specimen should [be]," said Dainard. It describes things like temperament, weight, height, and colouring.

Whittier is Blue Ribbon School - The Des Moines Register

            It was a celebration befitting a blue-ribbon winner. That is, an entire school of them.

            An assembly was held at Indianola High School on Friday to honor the students and staff of Whittier Elementary, which was named a National Blue Ribbon School last fall.

            The designation, based on students’ math and reading assessments, was given to 342 schools nationally for the 2016-17 school year. Kristin Scott, instructional coach at Whittier, was one of the speakers at the gathering and crunched a few numbers.

To illustrate her point, she directed the audience to a projected image of the United States above the stage.

            “Does that seem like a really big number?” she asked of “342” total. “It does. But when you start looking at our United States map up here, some of you might recognize the state of Iowa. … If you can find the state of Iowa, everybody tell me — what’s the number in that state?”

Do you support Congress's bailout plan, or the House Republicans' bailout plan?

Here's the bullet points directly from the House GOP plan:

* Rather than providing taxpayer funded purchases of frozen mortgage assets, we should adopt a mortgage insurance approach to solve the problem.

I like the Republican's plan a lot better than the Democrat's plan, but what I really want is for the people who got loans they should not have received to go bankrupt and the bankers who issued the loans prosecuted for fraud.
