Early Bird Barbecue Winner: Contributed photo/ It may be dad who buys the supplies at Early Bird, but it seems to be his sons who are the lucky ones. At Early Bird and Supply’s 10th Annual Customer Appreciation Barbecue in Grangeville on Friday, Aug. 3, young John Kurtz was the winner of the grand prize, a barbecue. Rumor has it it’s a gift he will share with his family. He and his brothers also won some other gifts at the event. Pictured here (L-R) are John Kurtz, Sam Kurtz, Daniel Kurtz and their dad, David Kurtz, with Early Bird manager Matt Brady.

I just read a study that was completed 1980 through the present. It found that, in the U.S., on average, women without a college degree have their first child at age 23.8, while those with a college degree or higher have their first child at age 30.3. I have a BA (in English) and I had my first child at 24, so obviously there are some variances.
