Showing off raised goats a longtime 4-H tradition
By Betty Taylor
Rosie Miner remembers the ag barn at Madison High School in San Antonies and the good experiences afforded her there when she was a student in 4-H.
That's why she is so glad her two children — Payton, 1.3, and Mason, 8, Miner h<ive the same op[)ortunities to raise and show animals, thanks to the Comal County Agriculture Extension Barn on Texas Hvvy. 4(>. Payton was one of the first students to raise sheep in the new barn when it opened three years ago.
Now, Mason is enjoying liis first year in 4-H. It is the tirst year tor both to show goats.
Sunday afternoon is the big day tor them at the Comal County Fair. That is when they will show their goats in the livestock Ari'na. Overall, Payton expc'c ts raising goats to be more diffic ult than raising sheep tor one sf)ecific reason.
"Tht'y iiave a lot more [)ersonality than our sheef) did," she said. "I think it will be harder to say goodbye in tebruary."

But President Bariick Obama's resp()nsc' on Friday — hc-'s allowing states toopt out — is starting anew round of heated arguments.
There are (|uestions about whether letting states bypass unpopubr proficietu y standards will help th(> nation's schoolchildriM’i. And, even as
states clamor to use the new waiver option, some lawmakc'rs say Obama is inserting politics in what had bet'n a bipartisan ap[)roach to education.
