Toledo Take Three

WOW...such a short word and seems simple, yet not quite big enough to cover my thoughts right now.

First, l think as a community we should welcome back the students that have started or are starting school. They most likely are entering new classrooms and who can't remember that nervousness in the pit of your stomach when you started school. Who is my teacher? What am I going to wear? Will he/she like me? Maybe the kids won't sit by me at lunch.
We have all had these thoughts in our younger days starting school; at one time or another. Let's keep in mind how fragile some children really are and that they are just kids.

Second, Teachers are so very important to our children and I do believe that Toledo has been blessed with some of the best. We need to remember that they sacrifice so much for our children. Even some friends I had growing up are now teachers in Toledo and I am honored to say "I knew them when"!

Third, Let's remember that if someone decides to give a "pro tip", like Jeremy Bumhower of recently, we should keep in mind that in this case it would make him a pro at asking people for money.

Fourth, it is equally important to remember that Mrs. Semelka also known as her mafia name "The Nana" seems to agree with him constantly on everything and obviously never researches much herself. Maybe "The Nana" needs to learn the power of thinking on her own.

Fifth...or lastly....I find it interesting that Webb, Johnson, Kiser, and someone with the last name Hughes are so quick to jump on the party train.

I would offer a pro tip, however I don't have experience in asking people for money and I don't rely on a Blogger with a record for advice.

I assume you are referring to his "make you famous" facebook page from yesterday where he's attempting to scathe a Kern for helping a teacher raise funds and supplies for her classroom. I checked out the situation and learned this morning that the beneficiary teacher (not the BENEFACTOR as Bumhower referred to her - TUCK IN YOUR STUPID , YOUR LACK OF EDUCATION IS SHOWING!) took the job at the school at partial salary so that they could afford to hire her. She has 18 kids in her classroom and has spent nearly $1000 out of pocket already to prepare the room before the kids even walked in the door.

Of course his fellow residents of misfit island (Webb, Kiser, Johnson, Hughes and of course the Shrek of the district Semelka) LOVE LOVE LOVE him putting down and effort to help an educator because the Kerns are involved. If memory serves me correctly, didn't Terri raise almost ten grand for a family to bury their son in the spring?

Let's hope when Baumhower goes to jail this Friday he will have some time to think about what a rotten human being he is.

YES! I am referring to this because I too looked into the GO FUND ME account in reference.

On the off chance he was referencing another's GO FUND ME then let me offer this advice to the Blogger that loves to pour his heart out through his words because hearts the glass city.

It takes a lot for a person to start an account like this. To ask for help is not an easy task for many, so please let's remember the definition of being a decent human being.

Every penny they raise goes to buy shoes, jackets, and other clothes for the poorest of Toledo' s kids. The children who benefit from these needed personal items, attend both public and private schools in Toledo. No one who does anything to help raise funds for Old Newsboys Goodfellows Association takes one penny of compensation.
I urge all who care about the neediest children in our community to consider donating to and/or volunteering for the Old Newsboys. Here is a link to their website: http://www.toledonewsboys.org/

BTW -- My wife and I have done volunteer mentoring (tutoring) in a central city Toledo Public School since we retired from teaching in TPS five years ago. The program was a continuation of a previous tutoring program and is sponsored by the temple to which my wife and I belong, Temple Shomer Emunim. It is overseen by the Partners in Education, which is a local group of Toledo businesses. I know that George Sarantou has been an active mentor for several years, and his church, Holy Trinity, a Greek Orthodox church, also sponsors this program. George has a daughter who is a TPS teacher.

Labor Day. It is held on the grounds of Holy Trinity Church, just north of Downtown Toledo at 740 N. Superior St. When the weather cooperates, it is one of the most popular and busiest festivals in this area. It is VERY family friendly, but they do serve adult beverages as well. And the food is superior!
This year the dates are Friday, September 9; Saturday, September 10; and Sunday, September 11, 2016.
