Lastly, I want to praise our local utility linemen. When I hear of other parts of the state and nation suffering power outages for days, I am so thankful for Logansport Municipal Utilities employees. Lets try to retain them!
Those concernedneed to be involved
Open letter to all the parents who have children in our public schools.
Now that the state of Indiana has officially rejected the Common Core Standards for our schools, the question is how to get rid of them.
I am sure there are a number of you who are concerned enough to want your children to learn to write in cursive and do math with the old tried and true methods. You are going to need to get involved and let your voices be heard loud and clear.
Please consider banding together and attend school board meetings, or better yet, consider service on the school board itself.
I know we have excellent, caring teachers in our school system who would love to have the freedom to do what they know is best for their students and they could use your support.
Decision continuesto be questioned
My name is Ruby. I’ve lived in Logansport most of my life. Many times I have donated to the United Way. This year is the first time I have regretted doing so. I am very upset that the United Way removed the Mental Health Association from their agencies. Because I donate items to the Mental Health, I know how busy they are and how much they do for people. When I called the United Way for an explanation of why they did this, I was told that the Mental Health was given a list of standards and didn’t comply with them. When I asked what the standards were, it was “I don’t remember right now.” I was disappointed with this answer.
