Keeping our children safe is always on the minds of parents everywhere. Some parents are opting for bullet shielding panels that slide easily into backpacks, but they may be too heavy for smaller students to carry. In the meantime, local schools are coming up with ways to keep your children safe when they go back to school in a few days.

Take a look back with me on some of the most memorable moments of 2012.
Say another little prayer for the families affected by the Sandy Hook School shooting last week. It is a horrible thing to loose a child, and all the worse during a time of the year that is so full of love and joy.
It saddens the staff of Magic 96 as parents that there are people willing to cause these families more grief. WERC's Leah Brandon released this report today following the tragedy.
Petition To Recognize Westboro Baptist Church As A Hate Group
Users of the White House's "We the People" digital petition platform have flooded the site in support of an effort to officially designate the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.
The petition was submitted on Dec. 14, the same day as the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The Westboro "church" responded to the shooting by announcing its intent to picket the funerals of the 26 victims, including 20 young children.
This plan made them a target of the hactivist group "Anonymous" and started a counter-protest to block the "church" from disrupting the services of 26 that were killed.
The individual push has since received the support of over 250,000 signees, making it the most popular single petition ever created through the White House initiative.
Find and sign the petition here.

I was teasing a friend of mine the other day because she bought a slow cooker on Black Friday and all she know how to make in it is chili and dips! Now there is NOTHING wrong with a good pot of chili but there are LOTS of recipes using slow cookers. The best part is tossing just a few ingredients in before work and dinner is ready when you return! PLUS there's only one pot to clean at the end instead of several pans.
Total Time: 4 hr
Prep Time: 15 min
Oh my stars will you look at that? Santa is checking his list twice on TWITTER (and seeing what kind of cookies children will be leaving him)!
Shining lights have long been a staple of Christmas decor reminding people of the bright star that shone over that special someone laying in a manger.
This year Birmingham joins the line-up for some of the nation's best pretties including the likes of New York's famous Rockefeller Center.
