The bear’s best friends

Is there anything better than a picture of first-grade kids?


Dana Coleman, the first grade teacher in Andover whose students are championing a bill to make the black bear the official state mammal, sent the picture along today with word the stalled bill might get a hearing in Saint Paul after all in this legislative session.

“We have to WOW them in committee!” she said.

It appears she knows just the people to do that.
