Well, it's a start :)
Tom, The manner in which several members of the Board have acted and voted over the past 5 years have left a bitter taste in my mouth. I have serious doubts about approving any bond issue for the school district. A couple of years back the Board allowed a debt of over a million dollars. How ironic that they now claim to be a million short.
Tom, I remain undecided on the issue of the death penalty in that both pro and con sides have legitimate points of view. As regards the means of execution: I recall that Utah made use of Firing Squad several years back. My thought is that the usual means of execution appear to be perhaps based on the opinions of observers more than criminals. Who can say that a Firing Squad's bullets or a hangman's noose or a medication is more humane for the
Or is perspective a matter of attitude?
Don, I have to turn you down. I find that alone I am enough trouble. I can't imagine how I would cope with two sets of Ego. :)
Dear Unfairly Resentful?,. Your indignation is righteous. Marriage should be based, in part, on sharing goals, responsibilities, chores, morals, duties and more. Your spouse likely is behaving based on values that are immature, gender-biased and outdated. You should have a face-to-face conversation and share your feelings and reasoning. If you mate does not agree with you or both of you can not agree to some compromises, you will need to do some deep thinking about couples counseling, agreeing to "let it be", or more permanent solutions.
Tom, Ditto !
Several members of the Board served when a number of reprehensible decisions were made. The firing of PHS Administrators, the budgetary debt of over 1 million dollars and other actions ( or lack of actions) inform me of a lack of appropriate, ethical leadership and perhaps a lack of knowledge of the proper role of members of a school district Board . Personal agendas and decisions apparently based upon a lack of education will continue unless changes are made. 1. Changes in members of the Board through the election process might help. 2. Changes in attitude through "education" of members by a Superintendent would help. 3. Changes in ethics and attitudes on the part of certain members would help. If any or none of these things occur, the future looks dismal. We need a Board that realizes that good education is reliant on good leadership and good staff. We seem to have the staff but seem to have a lack of leadership at the top level.
Tom, I think that a warning about San Franciso and L.A could be put on pumps. It would better serve the public. :)
