    I'm still in my Halloween costume, well most of it. The thing is that aside from a few key accessories, it looks like my regular clothes.

We need information to fight the rotten School board guy-he lies, and lies and was hired to get an agenda accomplished that the parents are fighting. It doesn't currently affect me, cause she goes to a non public, however, in the event that she needs a public school, I want good ones, for her and all the otehr motivated learners. It seems they should have some equality in spending so all the schools are equally good.
    I grew up in a school district with 4 high schools. 2 in the town I lived, one of which was the wealthiest of the 4 school neighborhoods. 2 others were in neighboring, less affluent towns. I went to the best of the 4 schools. We had on a whole the better, cream of the teaching staff. Staff all held the same degrees, paid the same salaries, but we had the best teachers, the good coaches, etc. My Mom taught in the worst of the 4 schools until my Sis and I graduated and then transferred.

    The school board gave us the better football fields, nicer desks, nicer building and so on. Now don't shoot the messenger but here was their logic. My parents house, sitting in the best neighborhood of the four different school districts payed substantially more tax dollars to the district than the other 3 schools especially 2 of the high schools. For the same type, size house my folks payed almost 4x the property tax. They also payed dramatically more for their house because of town and superior schools.

    Admittedly I did the same when we went looking for this house and the last one. I picked the best school district in the area. I payed more for my house because our town was coveted. I pay substantially more in school district taxes than our neighboring towns. Our schools are better, they draw better teachers because we pay more than the average and offer better benefits to the staff and we fully reimburse for higher degrees earned.

    Our teachers have never in 75 years have walked out on strike. They have a tough union that I'd like to pinch sometimes as negotiations drag on but it always ends the same way, they give, board gives and it comes out somewhere in the middle. Done. Me < even if you don't have children buy a home where there is an outstanding public school system. The homes hold their value better and the residents normally care about their neighborhoods. Always buy that home in the better end of town. Never buy the best house on the block.


    Question: Are your school board members elected or appointed? Are they volunteers or paid?

    Our trick or treat time started at 3pm. Schools for the elementary kids are not out until 3:30pm. Our town doesn't pay attention to the schools either. In this area we don't have many high school students that trick or treat, vast majority 12 and under. I had maybe a dozen older ones, half of which were with little kids. Trick or Treating around here is mainly for the elementary school kids. I did have some darn cute preschoolers though, they seemed in awe over me putting candy in their bucket, I love they don't get it.

    I got the preschoolers their own candy. Those tiny M&Ms in the the plastic bottles, the kind that would hold quarters. Older ones had the choice of Nestle Crunch (full size bars) or a full size package of Starburst, their choice. Many parents keeping warm with beer in Red solo cups.

    So, are you working or is your entire area without power?
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    So, 21 nights = 20 full days. Minus a day at the Lego park = 19 Disney packed days!

    We'll need a holiday to get over our holiday!!
