Dead pets

I know many of you have grieved over losing pets. Losing one to a long-term illness is difficult. Losing one abruptly and needlessly increases the pain. My wife and I adopted the doggy at a Humane Society tent at some UT festival years ago. They told us her previous owner called her Sugar, so we decided to name her "Sugar." Such a good dog. So fucking loving. Just give her a Milkbone. So happy to see you. She'd lie on my chest, both of us snoring away on the couch while a late-night NBA game played on the TV. The kids next door have a basketball hoop.

HIP HIP HORRAY..OHIO SENATE APPROVES UNION BILL....MAYBE WE CAN AVOID BECOMING LIKE DETROIT NOW..

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio took its first step Wednesday toward passing sweeping legislation that would curtail collective bargaining rights for public sector workers by banning strikes and putting the power of breaking labor impasses in the hands of local elected officials. This is what the unions and the Democrats don't want..

Live Stream - WGTE Town Hall: Leading in Literacy

Thursday, February 24 at 8:00 p.m.

Bill Harris hosts this live program that examines one of the most pressing issues facing our community - the problem of low literacy rates among preschool aged children. Children entering school with high literacy skills are "ready to learn" and move to the head of the class. Children with weak reading skills begin school at a disadvantage, a gap that may grow wider as their educational experiece proceeds. How can we break the cycle?

The Hypocrisy Of WSPD

Ahhhh...another day of teacher bashing from WSPD! How ironic that Brian Wilson and WSPD are so strongly opposed to "spreading the wealth" and socialism...yet, they use the arguement that since the private sector is suffering and paying more for benefits...the teachers should share in the misery of the private sector. Don't share the wealth...just the misery...as it fits our agenda.

What Are Teachers Really Worth?

Tagged:  

Are you sick of highly paid teachers?
Teachers' hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or10 months a year! It's time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do - babysit!
We can get that for less than minimum wage.

That's right. Let's give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school. That would be $19.50 a day (7:45 to 3:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch and plan-- that equals 6 1/2 hours).

Why Do Schools Fire Losing Coaches But Not Bad Teachers?

Tagged:  

In light of the recent coaching drama at U-M, this article is a good reminder on our missing priorities, where hiring and firing coaches is more important than those entrusted to teach our children.
=======

Anyone who pays attention to local high schools knows that a coach who has several consecutive losing seasons will likely be fired. Well, not really. It is more likely that the losing coach will be sent to teach history or English.

I can't verify this, but this person obviously is not too happy with what happened at LCCS so I am posting it. I apologize in advance for the all caps:

Merry Christmas

I just want to wish you all a merry Christmas.
