I really wish people would quit pointing fingers on how this person doesn't know how to run C-I schools and that person is a terrible coach or teacher for striking. If you think you can do a better job, than get off the couch and do so. Judging other people is wrong, I give a lot of credit to our schools, staff, volunteers and coaches for the jobs they do, regardless if I agree with how they do things or not.
Early this week the Crosby/Ironton School Board was informed by the teacher's union (EdMN/CI) of a "vote of no confidence" against the superintendent, Linda Lawrie. The union has demanded that the school board begin a process of non-renewal of her contract. I would like to point out that the union's recent action has no legal authority in the state of Minnesota or in the contract between the district and EdMN/CI. Their action should be viewed as a pressure tactic and a publicity stunt.
If recent bite carries into winter it will be a great ice fishing season
It's not something that I've really been too excited about, but with snow in the forecast I better get in gear and pull my fish houses out of the woods. It's my nature to not look too far ahead. In other words, I'm good at waiting until the last second to get the dirty work done.
Hunters, farmers and others with ties to land are shrinking in number
Early in the morning, two or three times a week, all year long, he would park his familiar old truck in front of our house and walk to the back door. Soon after, one of us would step outside and retrieve the bottles of milk he left.
The place is the treasure
In deer hunting being in the right place at the right time is everything, a lesson Brandon Meyer has learned early in his hunting career.
A special buck stand
On the opening weekend of deer hunting Sam Lastovich was given a big opportunity. He was told he could hunt from what the Lastovich party calls "the big buck stand," a name bestowed upon the location where his brother shot a 10-pointer and a 5-pointer two years ago.
Youths face moment of truth
As satisfying as it is for an adult deer hunter to shoot a nice buck, it's even more satisfying to see the kid do it.
Two years, two bucks
Can a deer hunter start any better than that?
Car makes a good place for storing corn
My recent column on 13-lined ground squirrels prompted a couple of funny e-mails about two other resident rodents. One came from my friend, Ken Perry, who passed along a postscript about pocket gophers.
