Surf safely: Workshops focus on Internet use

in

Like in other aspects of daily life, technology has increasingly become an important part of education.

The first workshop is set for 9-10 a.m. Monday, while the second is set for 5:30-6:30 p.m. Feb. 11. Both meetings will be held at the Title I Media Center, which is located at 504 E. Arizona Ave. next door to the Lincoln Parish School Board Office

Vidrine: Change hearts, not gun laws

in

Last week was the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade and it occurred to me that there is a kind of disconnect in our country.
Much has been said and hearts totally broken over the events in Newtown, Conn.  While the killing of all those people, especially the kids, was horrendous beyond words, it is also true that had those same beautiful, little ones been killed seven or eight years ago while still in their mother’s wombs, society would have just looked the other way. Why? Why does where a child happens to live determine whether we grieve their death or not?

Weirick criticizes Alexander's actions

in

Fresh on the heels of a difficult vote on tax rates on the last day of the last Congress, when our Representative Rodney Alexander was the only Louisiana Republican congressman voting for the tax increase bill, the new Congress took up the issue of the Hurricane Sandy relief bill.
Initially the House Republicans stripped most of the pork included in the Senate bill and tried to get a version passed in the House which focused just on emergency relief for Sandy and which included cuts elsewhere so that the bill would not increase the ballooning deficit.

Exempting women from battlefield

in

Women are special. At 80 years old, I still admire attractive females. However, the lady I have been married to for 60 years means the world to me. I will never consider replacing her.
Women are very different from men, thank God. The following comments are general in nature. There are always exceptions. The opposite sex is talented in many ways with projects that require diligent and concentrated attention. They produce some of the most beautiful handiwork that men have no interest in nor would they be good at it.

One weapon not the cause

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

I was sidetracked with some work responsibilities the other day, so I missed the opportunity to hear the live presentation of President Obama’s Second Inaugural Address. I have taken the opportunity, however, to read it verbatim. I don’t know how many of you have had that joyous opportunity, so I am going to share some of it with you with some comments of my own. Excerpts of the President’s speech appear as quotations.

Kindergarten news
After a nice holiday break from school, kindergarteners came back ready to learn. We are continuing to read, read, read. We have been working hard on our letter sounds, blending words and identifying popcorn words.
As teachers, it is very rewarding to watch the students put their reading skills to use and listen to them successfully read books. We want to thank the parents for working hard with them at home and helping the students with their schoolwork. We would not be able to do it without you.
