GUEST COLUMN: School levy will create hardships
The upcoming school referendum brought out some new words from a former county commissioner like "let's be honest a minute and look at reality." Wow! Let's do that for once.
Two years after Katrina is a good time to reflect on what the Bush administration has done for us. Most of us never imagined that our government could mishandle a disaster so badly that rotting corpses of fellow Americans rotted in the sun while the president was on vacation and our "homeland security" department fumbled and stumbled.
Last week I went to the Salvation Army and picked up my son's school supplies. I had registered him back in July for the Caring Tree they have set up around town for anyone to pick up and buy him some much needed school supplies.
OUR OPINION: SAFETY
The annual admonitions to drive carefully as schools open for classes takes on a particular poignancy in light of this month's tragic pedestrian fatality that claimed the life of a 76-year-old Brainerd woman on College Drive.
