Too much television is probably not good for most people.

But for people receiving treatment for drug and alcohol problems at Baker House, a television brings them something they can’t readily get locally — the services of a specially trained psychiatrist.

The Baker School District has called another snow day for students and staff after about 9 inches of snow fell throughout the day and overnight.

Notifications to staff, parents, students and the media were slightly delayed because of a glitch in the BlackBoard Connect mass notification system.
