H. Wm. Rhea III 2 weeks ago on Speed-dating superintendents

I think you're right. I know a few good people who would be good in this position, but they all have reservations.


H. Wm. Rhea III 2 weeks ago on School spending: Dead last

Mr. Aleshire, spending money isn't the only key to fixing problems. Home schools and private schools spend less than the public schools do and get far better results on average. Maybe it's time to look at it differently. Perhaps we could be grateful that Arizona spends less than every other state to get the job done. If you don't like the results, throwing more money at it won't fix it, you need to fix a broken system.

I'm not a fan of Jazz, but I don't think it's inherently bad. I do however remember many people of my great-grandmothers generation thinking it was the devil's music! But then I grew up partly with rock music and you should've heard their comments about that!


H. Wm. Rhea III 2 weeks, 5 days ago on Neglecting our schools

Maybe it's because the private schools get better results. Homeschoolers do well also in most cases and in a situation where the parents pay a double tax. They pay taxes which go to education, then they get to buy all of the necessities to carry on the education in their homes, or in groups as some people do it. Yet somehow, they don't spend anywhere near as much per pupil as the public school system does. Someone could get the bright idea that spending more money does not equal a better education.


H. Wm. Rhea III 2 weeks, 5 days ago on School budget up – but just barely

"We have enough money, we've repaired the facilities, the teachers and staff are happy with the students and curriculum and the students themselves are testing quite well."

Who said this? Nobody! And it never will be said because nobody is ever happy no matter how much money is spent on education. Especially the newspaper and the school board.


H. Wm. Rhea III 2 weeks, 5 days ago on The truth about stop signs

They probably don't know that the Bashas parking lot is private property and that the stop signs are merely a suggestion on private property. However, I have seen many times in that same parking lot where people come flying in from or out to the highway like it's Nascar. I wish that would stop.


H. Wm. Rhea III 2 weeks, 5 days ago on Unrestrained dogs in vehicles is hazardous

If someone wants to let their dog ride in the back of the outfit, that's their choice. If it falls or jumps out, then the law can do what they need to do. Otherwise, the only person distracted is you because you're not minding your own business.


H. Wm. Rhea III 3 weeks ago on Council votes to raise cable fee

Cable TV, along with satellite is a rip-off. Dump them all and just go to the internet for programming. I have Suddenlink for Internet and they do that pretty well for me. I won't have TV, costs to much and there is precious little that's worth the time it takes to watch anymore.


H. Wm. Rhea III 4 weeks ago on Safeway sold – but market remains

... and PROBABLY won’t lay off employees.

Yeah right - time for Safeway employees to start looking for another job. Albertsons will probably close the store.
