In Topic: Interesting Survey Presented to DuBois School Board

Yesterday, 01:50 PM

Brings to mind the Courier article that quoted the Assistant Superintendent of Schools as saying that one person signed a previous petition to keep the schools open 8 times. Quite a few were discovered to have signed multiple times and that was just an eye-ball survey. Makes you wonder how many were smart enough to sign a different name the 2nd, 3rd or 4th time.

I'll bet religion will not be playing a big part in that kid's future.


In Topic: Angel eye's tree

The tree is indeed gone. Went by this evening. From the looks of the equipment in there they have probably pulled up the stump as well. I would check with the Historical Society on the tree. They may have some pictures. It is sad that the tree is gone but the maximum average life span of a weeping willow is 50 years. Most don't make it to that age with 20-30 being more likely. According to North State University 70 years is almost unheard of and anything past that is a miracle. I can vouch for 40 years of that tree and I'm sure there are people who can add years to that.

The attendants on that Alaskan airline are tough! Bet a polar bear in her bathtub wouldn't faze that one.

Works for a small Catholic school where everyone is more or less the same. Can you imagine doing this is a mixed cultural urban school with a huge graduating class? The shy, nerdy girl gets paired with the class doper who plans to spend his evening doing just that. Just think of the parental hair tearing combinations you could come up with. Not to mention the dangerous ones and the nobody had a good time ones.
