Re: “Unforgiven

Or we should work tax free because as a tax payer I should have the same rites

Re: “Unforgiven

This is the worst form of discrimination andslavery of people who can't aford to pay because of our God givin rites as American. Citizens being stripped for drug use. This is dispiccable. My felonies are all non violent. Drugs so I loose gun rites. Wow how does that match up. If u people want to strip my rites as a free American TAX PAYING member of your society then keep me in prison because this LIFE SENTENCE should be over upon your release from prison not based on your ability to pay

Re: “Ante Up

$200 per hour cannot be accurate. Hangers, insurance, certifications, inspections, repairs, maintenance and fuel. $200 is an unobtainable fantasy. Ask any helo pilot.

That is even ignoring the $Quarter Million in upgrades that was spent upon receipt of the first one.

Re: “A New Voice

Sorry to throw cold water on a very nice idea, but the business model has some flaws. First, Spokane County statistics show that only about 2% are black. That is a tiny population to draw readers from. Secondly, this is the age of the internet and there are many black news and social issue websites online. For free.

Unfortunately I do not think the life span of this publication will be too long. Why not just go online with the newsletter? The overhead would be only a fraction of publishing a hard copy.

Re: “Path of Least Resistance

Of course Spokane Public Schools has to re-work the grading system - colleges & universities have been low-ranking SPS graduates for some time. How is it possible that little John & Sue have an A grade in Honors Algebra, yet they test into remedial math on placement exams at the college? Because they attend Spokane Public Schools, where the ability to "communicate" the process you used to get the wrong answer gets you a good grade...

The waste of money in SPS on bloated administration and their Wall Street-like salaries, coupled with the "constructivist" "Discovery" approach to education has ruined the chance for thousands of SPS graduates to actually get a degree in 4, even 5 years. They are forced to pay tuition for classes in math and English they should have already been taught. Remediation rates for the 77% of SPS students that manage to graduate are in excess of 95%...

Parents - You will get a ballot from Spokane Public Schools this week asking you to renew the Levy. Vote NO!

I hope, "For the Kids!", that Spokane voters will vote NO on the Levy.

Your NO vote will force the school board to ask the public what changes must be made to get the Levy approved. That is the public's opportunity to demand 3 things:

1. Levy dollars must go directly to the classroom & teachers. Not be spent on grossly overpaid administrators salaries downtown.

2. Math & English curricula, along with teaching approach, must change from the current failed approach.

3. As the McCleary decision and class size reduction funding comes from the state, the Levy must be reduced equally.

Voters have approved HUGE increases in education spending this last election cycle. To ask for $200 million in additional funding before the District knows what their "take" will be from these measures is simply foolish - unless all you are interested in is getting Mo Money, Mo Money, Mo Money...

Spokane Public Schools has a well oiled marketing machine, and a sympathetic local print media, to tell the public just how wonderful they are. They bombard us with what a tough job they have in this poverty stricken wasteland - yet they are "raising the bar" in education and preparing all the kids for post-secondary education. Yeah...

Of course, they can spin the numbers to reflect whatever they chose. The truth of how they are doing educating the children is to be found in the percentage of graduates who are forced to take remedial classes in math & English when they go to university, or a trade program.

Grab your wallets parents & taxpayers: More than 95% od SPS graduates require remedial classes in math & English!

"But, but, but - How can that be Junior? You got A's in Honors Algebra last year!"

Well, that was an A in a classroom where the students get credit for explaining their mistakes. You don't have to get the right answers to get a good grade - you just have to be able to "communicate" what process you used to get the wrong answer...

Until the Levy money is directly targeted at this issue - the public should vote NO on the Levy. I read elsewhere that this is called "holding the Levy hostage for change" I like the sound of that.

Vote NO on the Levy!

Re: “Culture Clash

Do illegal immigrants drain local resources, increase crime and increase the risk of terrorism? Forget about the demagoguery on both sides of the issue and report the facts. If Ms. Murray's concerns are supported by the facts, then perhaps she and those who share her concerns cannot be dismissed out of hand as bigots.

Spokane scares off new companies ! Probably try and make them pay for street construction or pot hole repair before they move in !

Don't let the door..... Burns was a patsy for the PD. Ineffective and overpaid. We should have hired a stuffed animal.

Re: “Ante Up

True B.S. should do the research instead of pulling crapdooodle out of their backside. Email Oz and he will tell you. Its probably $200 per flight hour. Much cheaper than just renting a Robinson 44.

If all the illegals registered as Republicans the wall would be up next week.

Hey, who could object taking a pleasant, mostly pedestrian street and turning it into a narrow, darker alley filled with garbage cans?

Unmanned, lightweight drones cost $12,255 per hour to fly.

Can you imagine what the Sheriff's heavy helicopter costs to fly? How many more deputies could we hire instead?

Re: “Crossroads

We have no reason to trust the judgment of Mayor's office or DSP on these matters. Until they are willing to share more details with the public, they should not get any piece of the PUBLIC right of way.
