I hate French beauty pageants. None of the contestants shave, which makes the swimwear competitionRead More a spectacle. I thought one woman had furry shorts on, with a pink bikini OVER them.

So you're saying that Walden, who kicks out behavioral problems or underperformers, has betterRead More average ACT scores? How unexpected! If only the rest of the district could follow their model!

Too bad we have to spend so much time teaching them how to take the test instead of teaching themRead More what they need to know. Shouldn't the test check to see how well they know material instead of how hard they studied for this particular test? I guess that's the problem with standardized testing.

I don't think it is that easy for most public schools Mike.

It is tempting - until I realize that I stand for the abolition of government controlled skools andRead More the forced property taxes required to fund them. This is just another deception by The Powers That Be to give me: 1. The illusion of choice 2. Powers of property control over others. RUSD = A sick organization in a sick society that needs to be ABOLISHED. Government Skools are the problem - NOT the answer. Let the HATE begin. "Krishnamurti: “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

Why on Earth are we adding another School that pays ZERO property taxes to Racine's lakefront?Read More It's time for Racine to put the YMCA Bldg on the auction block. while we are at it lets sell the Racine Public Library too. Privatize the Zoo and at least stop subsidizing it. Look at our lakefront almost HALF of it is off the tax rolls! From the Old Case property, the Sewer treatment plant, DeKoven, The YMCA, the library, Memorial and Festival Hall, the Water treatment plant, the Walker property, North Beach and the zoo. Our most valuable land in the entire County is on the lakefront. we should Condo's and Hotels on the lake..paying taxes rather than tax soaking entities like those listed above.

If I may... A small correction. What Pozen said was, Opportunity does not knock, then knock again,Read More then leave a note saying "sorry I missed you."
Heather Asiyanbi (Editor) June 8, 2013 at 12:17 pm
@Matt - thanks! I was trying to take notes as Ms. Pozen was speaking ...

I knew John in Boyscouts, its sad to hear he's sick, he was such a nice kid! I'm glad to see so muchRead More people care though, $4,500 in three weeks ain't too bad.
Heather Asiyanbi (Editor) May 24, 2013 at 04:18 pm
All - I have to say Thursday afternoon was truly amazing ... the spirit of togetherness is reallyRead More more the norm than the exception at Park, and this walk for John is just more of that.

Park is a great school....the kids and faculty truly care about each other and encourage each otherRead More to not only learn, but to be concerned and caring friends and citizens. My kids had boundary transfers in order to attend Park. This article shows you, in part, why our family chose Park over all the public and private schools in the area.

Is there something I can go online to see the whole prom?
Ruthann May 17, 2013 at 07:44 pm
Please tell me more about the seating for family and friends. My grandson is going to prom (WaldenRead More lll ) and I have not been on the red carpet for 20 years (they did not charge back then) I don't want to miss out. Thanks Ruthann Mork
Heather Asiyanbi (Editor) May 17, 2013 at 09:54 pm
@Ruthann - seating is available on the bleachers that line both sides of the red carpet as studentsRead More enter Festival Hall. Last year, Rotary started charging for those seats and had such a good response, members decided to do it again this year. But, because seating is first come, first seated, if a ticketholder went on the tour, they sometimes lost their seat. The stadium cushion is to help provide a more comfortable seat, of course, but is also meant for saving a seat if someone is seated and then called for a tour. You can go to rotaryracine.org to order your tickets, but there will be some available at Festival Hall as well.
