Dear Thomas:

Providing a student(s) with a proper foundation & good moral attitude is important. Its not just that they should try & be upstanding citizens IV themselves once they complete their chosen educational path. They should try & do good IV the common man, take what they've learned in a classroom setting & apply it to real life in doing things IV those less fortunate & the betterment of humanity as a whole.

As a MCMXCIX (1999) Bachelor of Administration Graduate from Athabasca University, I like the idea of doing my old school a solid. This year AU is launching University-wide & thereIV worldwide fundraising campaign. This intelligent idea makes sense since AU is a correspondence based school, it has students & alumna, & financial friends worldwide. Lets wish AU huge success in its financial efforts!

Dear Thomas:

At a teen house party, a young man gets stabbed to death right in the heart with a steak knife deliberately thrown at him. The assailant was XVIII (18) at the time of the crime & is now XXI (21). So in otherwords he's an adult who understood the consequences of his actions. Now all he gets is III (3) years in jail IV manslaughter. To me, this is a case of full on pre-meditation in terms of what he was going II do. Manslaughter, IInd Degree Murder, Ist Degree Murder, this student took the life of a fine young man whose only crime was being at the house party & trying II stop inappropriate behavior! I believe XXV (25) to life would have much more appropriate b/c in 1,091 days when he gets out of jail, the murdered man will still not be back & the parents will have the stress of knowing their son's murderer will be free after such a short time. The assailant had & has no remorse, he flipped his middle finger at the assembled media after the verdict, the murder victim will never get to finish his studies & have a spouse & family or give his parents grandkids!

Justice Denied,

What with the other shooting of a pane of glass nearby & the XV year old student Jordan Manners in the past, things have certainly gotten out of control. Let us make sure that the students know that guns are not toys, even if they are toy guns or water guns, they should not ever, thats not ever be brought around any school yard in case someone gets hurt.

In Edmonton-Calder we have NDP Candidate David Eggen, a former Calder MLA & now a teacher. Then we have Bev Esslinger, the Progressive Conservative Candidate & a former Edmonton Public School Board Trustee. Two very strong proponents of education.

Battle River-Wainwright Progressive Conservative Candidate & PC Leadership MMXI Candidate, Doug Griffiths, the current Min. of Muni. Affairs is also a teacher. The Alberta Liberals have the retiring MLA IV Edm.-Riverview, Dr. Kevin Taft, a Professor of Business graduate with a Ph. D. from a school in England.

As a Polski immigrant, you can see the value in the school being mutilingual. The more fluency you have in multiple languages, the better off that you as a student will be once you enter the working world.

Just had some whack job in a corvette try & go around a school bus on 87th Avenue, going west at 159th Street. The school bus had its blinkers on & they were clearly flashing to all including me. The corvette went around the bus & scraped up its left side & wound up on a diagonal with its left tires on the centre meridian. There's more damage to the gentleman's corvette than the school bus let me tell you. Folks need II be reminded that school, &/or regular transit drivers put their hazards on IV many reasons including students/pedestrians crossing, hazards/danger ahead, or to signal a lane change.

Having just worked a 12am-8am night shift at a refrigeration warehouse, I can truly say what a great experience it was. There are both men & women on this shift in terms of labourers & office staff. Whats great is they get along beautifully. If an office staffer has a question of an employee, they come right out II the floor & treat that employee like a human with a face II face encounter. It also works in reverse, if an employee is ticked off, or perhaps confused on something, they can march right inII any managers office IV their query, no questions discounted. This is a truly great symbiotic relationship & cuts the no. of employee accidents by a lot. Plus many of the managers & office staff have gone to business schools IV management &/or marketing training

2:35PM: Early dismissal so students don't feel too much pressure & are excited about the learning process. Also, mention to kids about the importance of being positive members of the community, or "community helpers."

Not just that, but they are very conscious of the issues & want to make society better IV themselves, their children, grandkids, great grandkids, & so on.

Students who study the affects of aging & gerontology need II pay attention to Editor Smith's summations of the leadership candidates so that can get the proper perspective on what the true needs of seniors are these days. As well as to how this info. will relate to them when they themselves become seniors one day during a future election.
