Peering Over the Rim

Different cultures have different coming-of-age rituals. Some parents send their teens out into the woods to fend for themselves. Others throw the little boogers multi-thousand-dollar parties to which they invite their little booger friends so they can all be on an MTV show about what little boogers they are. I think the little boogers should have been thrown to a pack of wild animals at an early age. So, what the folks at Fossil Rim are doing with Encounter: Bison/Wildebeest is a step in the right direction. I'd rather we just toss the kids into a field with some hungry 'beest and see what happens instead of giving them a fun class and learning activities, but whatever. The "encounter" happens from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Fossil Rim, 2155 CR 2008 in Glen Rose. Tickets are $25 for one parent with one child and $10 for each additional person. Reservations are required. Call 254-897-2960, ext. 0 or visit
Sun., Sept. 10, 2 p.m.
