Jay and I couldn’t have been prouderThursday evening as our little Ringo earnedhis first of what we hope are many diplomas.He made it! He was a Puppy Kindergartengraduate.Of course, we are graduates, too.Puppy Kindergarten has been an adventure.When we started, we thought we’d have themost rotten, misbehaved puppy in the bunch.Turns out, most of them start that way. Dianewhipped us and Ringo into shape in no time.We also had a few ah-ha moments. There is alot you forget once your dog is mature.There have been some mishaps. The firstnight we went through the agility course,there was a small tinkling incident in the tun-nel. Seems Ringo has an over-excitable blad-der. Please don’t ask Auntie Amanda aboutthis. It’s just too embarrassing. Don’t ask hisdoggie daddy, either. He’s been peed on moretimes than I have fingers on one hand.We always are meanest to the ones welove, aren’t we?The first night we switched puppies I hadto apologize in advance to lady who wouldtake Ringo. She was sorry, too. See, they’reall alike in the beginning.Week 5 we were introduced to our first cat.When that conversation started I felt sweatpopping out on my brow. Are you kidding?But Ringo came through like trooper. Hesniffed the rather large tabby from nose totail and back. He didn’t really have an opin-ion one way or the other. The other puppiesthought the kitty was OK, too.When we got in the car that night, Ringoasked me if kitties taste like chicken. Shameon you Ringo.Then came graduation day. The last dayof Puppy Kindergarten is a costume contest.We scoured the Internet for an appropriatecostume. We found a white studded Elviscostume that was just too cute; also too priceyfor one day. Then we found the Super Dogcostume. It seemed like fate. When we gotRingo his ID tag, we chose the Supermanemblem.When the costume arrived in the mail, itwas in three pieces. All said and done, Ringohad five string ties around his little body; a lotof work on a squirming puppy who isn’t surehe wants to play the dress-up game.We arrived at class and couldn’t wait tosee the other puppies all dressed up.Max had on a Michigan jersey. Teahyawas an Easter Bunny. Cajun was Simba from“The Lion King.” The competition was stiff.Teahya ended up winning the costume con-test and was presented a soft, plush oinkingpig she didn’t appreciate at all.Then the Puppy Games began. First, wewalked with our little friends. They have tostay by your left side. Yeah, right. Ringomakes it his job to veer off course everychance he gets. Max won that round.Then we all lined up and the pups had tosit and stay until we released them. Ringo hassitting down; it’s the staying he forgets about.Teahya won that.Down and stay was next. Did I mentionit’s the staying he forgets? Cajun won thatround.Then it happened. Ringo hunkered up anddropped a load. While he is not the first norI’m sure will he be the last, my face turnedred and my husband had to turn around tokeep from laughing. After I cleaned up hislittle mishap, it was time to move on.Jay and I were little nervous by then. Threeother puppies had stars beside their names bythis time and poor little Ringo had none.The come command was next. Ringowas up first. I took his lead off because Icould imagine it getting caught in somethingand that star would never appear beside hisname.Jay and I walked to the other end of thetraining course. We took a deep breath,yelled his name and said, “Come.” Our littleguy flew all the way across the room and satright down in front of us. Eight seconds flat.Impressive. At the end of this round, Ringohad his star.With the competition tied with one starall, the agility course was next. Ringo hastaken to this like, well, a star. He is fear-less.We were up first and we hit each sta-tion with near precision. Sixteen seconds!Wow. Again, impressive. What should haveimpressed everyone is that mom didn’t fallover or pass out. I had just run the agilitycourse, also.At the end of the Puppy Games, Ringohad the most stars and took home a muchdeserved goodie bag.It was hard to get (our bursting with prideswollen heads) through the door to leavebecause we were so proud. Ringo didn’t havethat problem. He hit a recent growth spurt andeverything go a littler bigger — except hishead. Poor Ringo.

RALEIGH, N.C. —The cliche notwithstand-ing, there are atheists infoxholes.In fact, atheists, agnos-tics, humanists and otherassorted skeptics from theArmy’s Fort Bragg haveformed an organization ina pioneering effort to winrecognition and ensurefair treatment for nonbe-lievers in the overwhelm-ingly Christian U.S. mili-tary.“We exist, we’re here,we’re normal,” said Sgt.Justin Griffith, chief orga-nizer of Military Atheistsand Secular Humanists,or MASH. “We’re alsoin foxholes. That’s a bigone, right there.”For now, the groupmeets regularly in homesand bars outside of FortBragg, one of the big-gest military bases in thecountry. But it is goingthrough the long bureau-cratic process to win offi-cial recognition from theArmy as a distinct “faith”group.That would enable itto meet on base, adver-tise its gatherings and,members say, serve moreeffectively as a haven forlike-minded soldiers.“People look at you dif-ferently if you say you’rean atheist in the Army,”said Lt. Samantha Nicoll,a West Point graduate whoin January attended herfirst meeting of MASH.“That’s extremely taboo.I get a lot of questions if I let it slip in conversa-tion.”The decision on rec-ognition goes first to anArmy agency called theInstallation ManagementCommand and may bereviewed after that by theArmy Chaplain Corps.Neither agency returnedcalls for comment. MASHmembers said chaplainsat Fort Bragg have beensupportive of their effort.Similar groups of non-theists at about 20 U.S.military bases aroundthe world are watch-ing the outcome at FortBragg in hopes it willlead to their recognition,too, said Jason Torpy,president of the MilitaryAssociation of Atheistsand Freethinkers.

PHOENIX (AP) — ASouthwest Airlines flight fromPhoenix to California wasdiverted Friday to a militarybase in Yuma due to rapiddecompression in the plane,federal officials said.Ian Gregor, a FederalAviation Administrationspokesman in Los Angeles,said the cause of the decom-pression wasn’t immediatelyknown, but some passengerson Flight 812 to Sacramentosaid there was a hole in thecabin that caused a rapiddescent.“It dropped pretty quick,”said passenger Brenda Reese,who provided cellphone photo-graphs of the cabin damage onthe Boeing 737. The picturesshowed a panel that was hang-ing open in a section above theplane’s middle aisle.“It’s at the top of the plane,right up above where you storeyour luggage,” Reese told TheAssociated Press in a tele-phone interview. “The panel’snot completely off. It’s likeripped down, but you can seecompletely outside... Whenyou look up through the panel,you can see the sky.”Reese said the plane hadjust left Phoenix Sky HarborInternational Airport when sheawoke after hearing a “gun-shot-like sound” in the cabinand oxygen masks dropped forpassengers and flight atten-dants.Officials with Dallas-basedSouthwest said there were noinjuries among the 118 peopleaboard. However, Reese said“there were some people thatwere passing out because theyweren’t getting the oxygen.”She said one flight atten-dant’s oxygen didn’t workand that he fell and suffered abloody nose.Reese said there was “noreal panic” among the pas-sengers, who applauded thepilot after he emerged from thecockpit following the emer-gency landing.
