Failings schools district

Some schools have remained on the list of under-performing institutions for years while leaders say they are trying to improve things but in actuality are producing little result. Zais says the purpose of a special district composed of such schools would be to implement new measures to make the schools more effective and accountable. Zais says similar programs in Tennessee and Louisiana have worked well.

Teenage employment

Many teenagers are desperately seeking employment in these times. I joined them many years ago: in fact, I began work at age 11 and was furious when the "powers that be" decided every person under the age of sixteen had to have a doctor certify that the individual was not harming his health. I made the astronomical sum of a dollar a day at the dime store (98 cents when taxes were removed) and hated the thought of having to have the two dollar test to keep my job. My duties included everything from clerking to all types of housekeeping ...

As always, Napper was humble in receiving council's resolution honoring him, saying it really ...
