Re: Sixty Pencils?

This just reminded me of the issue that's been popping up more and more lately, and that's the idea of "communal" class pots for elementary kids' school supplies. I've heard several parents say lately they are starting to take serious issue with the fact that they are fulfilling the unusua...

So let me see if I got this straight. Some think the teacher sucks----some think he's the most on toast. That's cool---done deal---end of discussion already! This goes nowhere---minds are made up.

Re: 4th of July parade

A bit on the defensive abnerman? I totally understand. It's not easy seeing someone we have looked up to viewed as inadequate by others. That's human nature. Glad you had a good experience in the band program. As a parent it was a frustrating experience. I could give you a laundry list of issues ma...

Re: 4th of July parade

You are entirely correct Old Scout it is time to do something different with the band program. Abnerman is certainly entitled to his opinion, however as a former band parent I never saw any dedication to the program in any form. I could begin naming instances of neglect to the program but won't, th...

Re: 4th of July parade

Old Scout, while you are perfectly entitled to your opinion, I feel an obligation to say here that I think it's in fairly poor taste to attack the band director personally, using words like "clueless", stating that he "doesn't know what he's doing", and implying that he simply do...

Re: no one wants to touch this topic but.....

If you don't want to get shot on the street don't leave your house. If you want safe food to eat make it yourself. If you want a fair wage for reasonable hours employ yourself. They all sound like pretty stupid arguments don't they? In my opinion, they sound like melodramatic, inaccurate comparison...

The smoke detector must be hard wired into the home's electrical or have a 10 year tamper proof battery. 3. If it is a multi-family dwelling these items must be in place by mid-A...

Re: Protect Private Property Rights Of Business Owners In WI

I agree with you Old Scout. Having a drink is legal and at that point the user does not inflict anthing negative to the people around them. A smoker does. Driving under the influence is a crime and that is a different issue. But in this particular case, there are non-smokers that are literally goin...
