Is any one else concerned that the paper posted a downloadable Excel spread sheet with this article? It indicates your full name, year of birth, party affiliation and when you voted. I, for one, feel this is personal info that I'd rather not be sharing with every one. Please paper, remove this document. And think ahead next time before posting info such as this. Paper employees who did not vote (accoding to your spread sheet): Blythe Terrell, Allison Miriani, Mike Lawrence, Margaret Hair, Zach Fridell, Jack Weinstein, Matt Stensland, Luke Graham, Joel Reichenberger, Christopher Woytko, Laura Mazade, Leslie Small, Mike Polucci, Mary Beth Magalis, Kerry Crimmins, Deb Proper, Erich Strotbeck, Blake Stansbery, Amy Ingram-Fleeson, Erin Orr, Christy Woodland, Tricia Langevin, Steve Balgenorth, Tyler Jacobs, Ashley McMurray. So does this mean that several employees of the paper are uninformed?

my bad well then...the judge needs to do read up on the judicial system and its terminology. Nightwalker is by no means a "public figure"

Correction Nightwalker: you're not a public figure. To be one you'd have to have a higher threshold of public activity. You instead may be an "involuntary public figure" as the result of publicity. However, that publicity is not based on false defamation of your actions or statements. You were reckless. You did shoot a bear. You did use a firearm in a dense neighborhood. And you did lie about the time frame by stretching 15 minutes to an hour. There is no defamation in regards to your actions and statements, because you did kill a bear. Nothing false about that.

People "...are respectable only as they respect." Bennett is another fine example of the latest of those speaking out in poor taste. And then being quick to appoligize as if it's Okay: Congressman Wilson, Kanye West, and Serena Williams. Bite your tongue next time. My vote is for Cari.

untamedShrewd 5 years, 3 months ago on Our View: A lost opportunity

Hi Magpie, Yes I know the reason only one child went from SPE. Which is why it would have been more appropriate to request parents to submit a note excluding a child from viewing the speech. Not the other way around...Usually the notes my kids bring home I sometimes see only after the fact. I think it is just plain silly to get consent for something as innocent and harmless as the President speaking to students.

Kudos Pilot and principle Taulman. Shame on the Superintendents and other educators for copping out. As educators you should know more than any one else that knowledge is the foundation of what your here to provide for our kids. That wisdom comes not from censorship but from awareness. And by making it more difficult for kids to watch a harmless historic speech then by having kids remove themselves from watching the speech goes against what we expect from our educators. We hold you to the highest of expectations to provide a vast of information and you failed. Only one child from Strawberry Park went to the media center to watch the speech. Only a handfull of children removed themselves from Soda Creek classes to watch the speech (one 4th grade class ony had two participants). And some middle schoolers decided to play basketball instead of watching the speech. The number of children watching the President speak, thus honoring and respecting a long-time tradition would have been a lot higher had the kids watched in their classrooms (where available) or if they had to provide a note from home excluding them from watching. Maybe the next step is to burn books (Nazi Germany); or exclude girls from going to school (Afghanistan); or to predetermine which kids will go to trade schools or earn doctorates based on class and income (Austria). Ignorance is bliss seems to be the new motto for the district. And by keeping the kids unaware or uninformed supports this motto.

OMG! I just saw the speech...Gotcha! Be afraid, be very very afraid. Your oppressed kids might just learn something. Extremists fear education because it breaks down the barriers of oppression.

why not show it in the classrooms and have the handful of oppressed right wing kids sit in the media center. The media centers at the schools are too small to seat the majority of out Foxed kids.

"Let me know how you're doing. Write me a letter--and I'm serious about this one--write me a letter about ways you can help us achieve our goals. I think you know the address." Obama said this? No, this was from a speech broadcast live to school classrooms nationwide by former President Bush (senior) in 1991.

This outrage about the speech is just plain Stupid!
