  • Common sense, research all part of talks

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Darrell Vincent recognized last year that when his high school students arrived later due to a two-hour weather delay, they acted differently.
    There was more interest and more energy.
    He knew that with a little more sleep, his students were better prepared to start learning when the bell rang.
