School Board President Seth Wright made the comment that he felt really bad because the kids in St. Joe felt like we didn’t care about them, because we don’t have really big, fancy schools. I sure as heck hope that every single parent who can’t afford a big, fancy house doesn’t have kids that feel like they don’t care about them just because they can’t spend a lot of money on them. Sometimes we have to live within our means.
I saw a comment about comparing the new model of one high school to different areas of town and the fact that kids in the North and South ends don’t have cars to get to school and have to walk a long distance, while kids in the east have their own cars. I wonder if transportation was ever figured into these models, and isn’t that one of the biggest expenses the school district has?
Transporting, growing or selling marijuana is a felony. That is, until the politicians found out they can make a bunch of money on it.
Run, Nikki, run
Watching all the talking heads debating on why ex-governor Nikki Haley jumped in and started defending President Donald Trump out of the clear, blue sky, and I think I have the answer. I think she’s running for vice president.
Truth on trial
This is what baffles a thinking person about Trump’s detractors. They just cannot deal with the truth. They have to rationalize everything because the truth is not their friend.
Quite a few
Yeah, I’m just kind of curious, I wonder how many heads are going to explode when Trump gets re-elected.
Here comes the soul
To that person who is still opposed to a woman’s choice, let me say this. Some of us believe that it’s just a fetus until it takes its first breath. Then it becomes a person, the soul enters the body at that point. So why don’t you mind your own business?
Good and evil
It was not OK to say there were fine people on both sides at Charlottesville. White supremacists are not fine people. One side was good, one was evil.
I think that Mayor Bill McMurray did an outstanding job, as he always does, to take care of this city, and Tracy Gillespie, the homeless man who considers himself an ambassador for the homeless, needs to understand that for this society and this city to function, we cannot be nomads.
I think people have lost sight of what it takes to really educate a child, which means encouraging them to think for themselves and learn by exploring the world around them. And that doesn’t cost anything.
