E-mail to Commissioner Dennis Miller Jr.

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

 

Dear Commissioner Dennis Miller:

I am sorry that we have never had the opportunity to meet, but I wanted to take a moment to urge you to very carefully read the above captioned report. I hope you take the time to do that and question if this was indeed a fair and impartial investigation of the facts, or whether it followed the dictates of an agenda.

I also wanted to mention to you that I met a man at the city commission meeting on Thursday who shared with me his thoughts about this issue and others. He also mentioned he's lived in his home in the 1500 block of Shelby Street for 67 years and said there are eight vacant houses surrounding his home. I drove to his neighborhood earlier today, and sadly, it appears the information he gave me is exactly correct.

I wonder if the more than $40,000 spent so far on the Murman investigation and related expenses would have been better spent to protect our neighborhoods and secure our city's future.

Please feel free to call me anytime. There are a great many other concerns I have regarding this issue, and it would be nice to meet and talk with you about them. Thank you for taking the time to consider my request.

Sincerely,

Matt Westhover

WHAT IN THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU??!! HAVEN'T YOU MADE ENOUGH ENEMIES ALREADY? My gosh, why does the SR register put up with this guy? Brewing and brewing trouble and it always comes back to his defending Kim.

Is this for real?! Dennis MILLER? Matt WESTHOVER?? Was somebody able to hack onto this site and put this on here? Or is just more sloopy work by the SR?

Please excuse me, my previous post should have read "is THIS just more SLOPPY work". Thank you.

WTF
Can anyone at the register spell
I hope think is a joke because a so-called newspaper should have better material than this whichever side of the debate it is taking.

You continue to divide this community with your refusal to admit that Kim was wrong. With all these men and woman coming forward, what do you want? So many people complaining about her lack of integrity or outright lying! You are blinded by Kim. Talk about biased reporting. You have been biased from the start. You have zero creditability.

For that matter, who is Matt Westhover?

WESTHOVER? He is so bent on this he can't even remember his OWN name! hahaha...What in the heck is going on with this guy? Very, very amusing. I bet he can spell N-U-E-S-S-E. I bet EVERYONE can....so sick of that NAME....! Get her GONE!

Elsematt is trying to, immaturely I might add, make light of the spelling errors in the Murman report.

What he fails to realize—in his infinite ignorance—is this report was taken down by a stenographer. Yes, the person probably didn’t know how to spell Westerhold, nor does the stenographer have to have everything in the transcript spelled correctly. Knowing this minor detail would come from an education, which Westerhover surely lacks. The stenographer is there to take the information down and later put in text format for people not familiar with their shorthand to understand. It was obvious to whom they were speaking during their testimony. He should not have even been mentioned had he been a professional journalist instead of an influenced player with the ability to sway public opinion and made himself part of the story.

Matt, questions have been asked of you about your ethics. According to the report, two top police officers were told by Nuesse herself that you were there when calls were made to commissioners. It’s in the report. Well, can you deny it? Why would they mention this if it were not true? What do they gain by telling the FBI she talked to the commissioners as you listened? It’s not like you could be charged! What it does do is prove you are a liar, if others know this to be true other than those questioned in the report.
Does anyone else in that newsroom know the truth? They should step up and let Doug Phares know, if they want to be true journalists. Did he brag about this to anyone?

There have been other questions asked of Westerhover on these blogs that were taken down even though they didn’t do anything to violate the rules set forth by the Register. I wonder if the Register has records of the person who actually removes each comment. I’m sure those were taken down by Westerhover himself.

I can only hope this latest blog is just Westerhover scrambling to convince his boss, Phares, that he is not a complete moron. Talk about not doing a thorough background check of someone before you hire someone (Westerhover)! Back to Nuesse. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. She made mistakes. The biggest of which was lying. Maybe people are out to get her for not being the most personable to subordinate, but the main point of all this is she was caught lying to her bosses. How long would you put up with an employee lying to you?

Lastly, how much more of this can you take and not feel ashamed when you walk in public?

The last question was for Doug Phares.

Yes Matt, I have asked several times and you still won't give a straight answer. Tell the blogging public how you sat in her house that night, secretly listening to her call the commissioners and let you listen in...REMEMBER???

Who is Dennis Miller and why was Matt Westhover's name spelled wrong? Are you all on drugs down at the Register? I don't get the purpose of the letter. I have seen this Dennis Miller's name somewhere before but can't remember where I have seen it.

Very clever Matt, I agree with what the investigation cost the taxpayers, you would think Murman's staff would of proof read it. Your analogy that describes the Murman report well lets say I give you 5 stars..

Anonymous

Matt, Something is not right. I first came across this Dennis Miller name in Murman report. Check it out for yourself. This was one of the errors that was made on Murman's report. Murman had misspelled names of people in his report. Instead of having Dennis Murray, Jr., it had Dennis Miller on his report and that is why I say this report was done very unprofessional coming from an attorney's office.

Anonymous

For those of you completely confused about the "Dennis Miller" and the "Matt Westhover", you need to read the Murman report. In the report there are several times they refer to Westerhold as "westhover" and to Dennis Murray as "Dennis Miller". I personally like on pg 17 Don Icsman being called "Iceman"...talk about irony.

Anonymous

very funny, Westerhold. The Murman report only had about as many errors in it as a normal edition of the Register, so quit it with the sarcasm.

Anonymous

Report did not come from the attorney general's office.

And I agree that for any one who works for the register to make light of errors in something printed is highly highly cynical which of course describes Westerhold and Phares both.

Anonymous

What about my question? Remember the night you were at the lier's house, listening to her talk with the commissioners and secretly listening in? I know you remember.

Anonymous

Perhaps the reason the Murmur report is so disjointed is because portions were written by different former FBI and perhaps spelling challenged investigators. Then there was all of the editing necessary after Kline & Icsman read the draft and communicated directly with Murmur to get the kind of report they needed to support the plan to dump the police chief to cover over their own tracks...hhhmmmmmmmmmm that explains the spelling errors but not the error in the way the investigation was conducted with the absence of any information supporting the chief. The report is not fair and balanced. The report is a disgrace because it is a biased smear tactic for which some one needs to be held accountable for such a waste of taxpayer funds. Kline and Icsman need to pay for their mischief and Nuesse needs to be returned to clean house and rid the SPD of the cancer there.

You can write the report in Sanskrit, but it doesn't change the results. She lied repeatedly, to her department,to her bosses, to other professionals who she had to work with. She has lost the professional capacity to lead with any respect. Anyone who works with her from this point on will have to check every word she says.

Are you also a bottom feeder? That liar line is growing tired already. The police chief investigation turned up no criminal charges as promised by the insider SPD supporters. Lying is a matter of interpretation according to the city law director...so why don't you stop lying about Nuessse? We need Nuesse to return to root out all of the problems in the police department.

Seems like a legitimate, legal investment strategy. There is a way to cheat these "creepy" investors, commit suicide.

I don't understand, do you mean that if there are 10 people involved, they all get paid the same dollar amount as a single person would? Count me in!

Don't blame the investors, blame the insurance companies and legislators who allow this to be legal.

To BABY BOOMER:

Sue is not telling us that this is a "new story"; she is just telling us that this is one of the many scams that our society is experiencing as the number of Americans who are aging well beyond their ancestors. Her job is not to jump on every element as it happens. Her work portrayed here is to make the general public, and more specifically, our seniors and their caregivers what they should look out for to maintain maximum health both physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. If you do not like what she has written, move on. There is no need to criticize someone for providing this service

Rick Studer

Personally I hate the insurance companies. All insurance companies are rightwing owned and endorsed ponzi schemes. They not only thrive off the misery and suffering of others, they pursue it.

Buying life insurance on unknown persons is just another example of the ruthless nature of this business. When someone has a financial interest in another’s death we are only courting mischief.

I’m sure the companies will tell you your information is confidential, just like your credit information. How many times a year do you read about personal information being breeched by unscrupulous hackers and thieves?

I may be wrong on this point but I believe this practice started with “investors” buying the insurance policies, cents on the dollar, of dieing AIDS patients. In a particular tasty twist of irony some of these patients who had negotiated monthly payments with the buzzards were able to live for years because of the advances in AIDS treatments.

In silent protest of these vampires I always try to light up one of my favorite Camel cigarettes whenever I’m around an insurance salesman with hopes of contributing to their untimely death. So far, I’ve never had a leech walk away from the talking the deal to avoid the smoke…

From my experience PDFs are the best route. They can be rather secure which is a great bonus for you guys. As for download speeds, you'd be surprised what you can do with PDFs. Fonts are embedded, so the majority of your pages (think classifieds/inside pages) won't take up much more space than they would if you had them all marked up in HTML or Rich-Text. Photos and raster artwork can be compressed to a web resolution, or lower, without really bothering the average reader too. As it stands, the current e-paper isn't very user-friendly or accessible, so a well put together PDF could be very beneficial.

I can answer that one. "Not me" means there is competent, caring staff employed at Serving Our Seniors who will speak with the people who call the agency about this concern--or any other. That's where their job responsibilities lie and they do it very well.

I would think in the long run it is less expensive to buy a few uniform sets for students than to have to spend money on lots of different school clothing items. Am I correct in my thinking, or is it more expensive? Plus you could pass the uniforms on to younger siblings eventually.

Anonymous

I have trouble reading the e-paper.

Anonymous

Actually if you buy clothes that are mix and match it is not more expensive. The uniform rule was just a way for the administration to not enforce the rules they already had. It just makes me sick to think we are going the route of the Nazis who also required all the children to wear uniforms. They want you to think it is for the students own good and it really isn't. There is no proof over time that uniforms make a difference in grades. Teachers make the difference not the clothes.

"Going the route of the Nazis". Are you serious?

Sue Daugherty

TO JEFF, Thanks for the feedback. Allow me to explain. Currently, I get messages to call older adults with questions that could have been answered right away if they would have known not to ask for me, but one of my co-workers. I don't know the minutia as well as they do. I learn from them!! Then I write about it.

It's not that I am opposed to anwering calls, but my co-workers are much better at the details -- more efficient at helping -- because they work with it day in and day out. I don't.

My point is, senior citizens will get better service if they ask for Nancy, Kristen, or Kevin. This is their area of expertise -- not mine.

Hope that helps. Again, thank you for the constructive criticism. Communication is such an art. I'm still trying to master it. -- Sue

You're joking, right? It seems to be that the Catholic Schools have used uniforms for decades. Are they "going the route of the Nazis?"

You are really desparately crabing for excuses...and poor ones at that.

The SR should actually do some investigative reporting (I know, I know this will require a little work and effort on the part of the SR; something they are not inclined to do) to see if after one year, this has made any difference at all. The SR should talk to not only administrators, but teachers, non-teaching staff, and students. Wow, that does sound like alot of work.

Anonymous

Think about it, the Nazis started with the children with the theory that by starting with the young they will grow up to be non-conformists. They will follow the leaders in whatever direction they say. The states already dictate what is to be taught in the school systems and you have no chance to indict any new thought process on this. It starts with telling you what you are to learn and then progresses to what you are to wear and then next step is what you say. This has been true all through out history and will repeat again if we let it.

The idea that you have to go to school to "make something of yourself" is all part of the indoctrination, that most of us had to go through. The public school system was not created to ensure that every child has an education, it was mostly, to guarantee social control. We could be a nation of business owners, instead we are a nation of employees, because from kindergarten up you hear repeatedly, that you have to graduate and go to college or you'll be a burger flippin' loser. That is not true, however when people hear it enough times, they believe it. My mother is a nurse, because she was told she had to have a career, when she would have been much happier (and I would not have had to go to daycare) running her own sewing business. My dad worked at Delphi, 70 hrs. per week, when he should have been a photographer, My husband was a cop, when he should have been a musician, (which he now is, after taking an early retirement, and he's finally stress free) and the list goes on. I quit school in 10th grade, not because I'm lazy or a loser, but because I did not relate to what I was being taught, and I always sensed that something was seriously wrong with the education system, I just wish I knew then what I know now. I was not taught in school that I could save up money and buy a house and some land in the country, mortgage free, put solar panels on the house, or a windmill and have no utility bills, Have fruit trees and grow and can my own fruits vegetables, and have no need for a "career". This is what I am in the process of doing, now that I have educated myself and understand this IS an option. I'm 30 years old and do not regret quitting, I would quit again, if given the chance. I have learned the important things, not taught in school and when I come across something I need to learn, I learn it, after all I DO have the internet, and I DO read very well. My children are homeschooled, and are learning about all the possibilities, how to make products kind of like the Amish or native Americans do, not just to become a doctor, or a lawyer, a scientist or a teacher. I wish more people would wake up, but instead they will eat their bag of Burger King while watching American Idol or football, and remaining ignorant to what is going on. Education is the key, agreed, but forced compulsory government schooling is not the answer. Kids will continue to drop out until we as a society can see the public school system for what it is.....a brainwashing day camp.....The people running our country know this, so the joke is on us, no, not the president, the real group of people, not talked about on the controlled news networks, if you went to a public school....that would explain why you don't know what I'm talking about. Please go to: johntaylorgatto.com, research the history of compulsory schooling and try to prove me wrong.

A truly un-brainwashed Sovereign American--- holy cow. i thought all of the free thinkers were gone from these pages. thank you for stating the truth and writing to express yourself so well. they are indeed the government halls of indoctrination instead of the halls of education. how sad it is that so few of us understand and aren't willing to follow the rest of the sheep.

I believe the state still dictates what is taught in the private schools as well as the catholic schools, so you can say they fall in the same catagory. The only difference I can see is they teach religion and the Nazis did not have a religion. But that may change in the future for the catholic schools. Did you ever read the book 1984 by Orwell. It may have been written quite a while back but the premise is still the same. Our own president wants to give up our soverign nation to the rest of the world. If we don't wake up soon we all will be wondering what happened.

Listen burger flippin loser....not finishing school, and not going to college does not mean an individual is uneducated, do you really believe school is the only place on the planet to learn? I am educated enough to homeschool my kids, so they will not be brainwashed as you are. You missed the point completely, I would never look for a job. I retired when I was 28, I mean from "jobs" as you know them. You believe what you do because you cannot think on your own, so attempting to think outside of the box may not be possible.....for you. If your friends in their 30's would teach themselves something and start a business, they would not have to look for a burger job. if they are losers, then that is a choice that they made, that has nothing to do with school. For fun, and since you challenged me I will list a few "jobs" that college is not needed for, but is optional: painting, a musician, an artist, landscaping, a writer, making furniture, or making just about anything, (it works for the Amish), You can own a restaurant, or a hotel, etc. The point you missed was that the schools are not there to educate, despite what everyone thinks. Once again please see johntaylorgatto.com and try to prove me wrong. Also, if you have no mortgage, no utility bills, no car payment, and a very small grocery bill because you grow most of your own food, then you don't need a job.

I believe you are correct in that the state does dictate what is taught in shcools: public & private. I also belive that they dictate what homeschooled kids are to be taught (although I'm not 100% sure on that one).

IMO, that is more Nazi-like than making kids wear uniforms. The difference between that and school uniforms is that the state has been dictating what is taught has been going on for years where as the local school districts (not the state) decide on dress code and uniform policy.

Yes, I have read 1984. It's an erie and scary book and (unfortunately) I see some of that stuff in the book happening today with our own federal governement.

To: A truly unbrainwashed sovereign American

It truly is a shame that with all that you seem to have, you also have an ax to grind. You want us all to believe that since your school experience seemed to have failed miserably for you, then it is likewise for others. That raises a whole new set of questions and thoughts from this writer.
1. Since your family was your primary set of teachers, I would have to wonder what the support of education was like in your home. It is a well-known fact that parents who support the educational system often have students who succeed.
2. Whatever it is in life, you get out exactly what you put into it. You know this well enough as you choose to manage your daily lifestyle choices and reap the benefits. What did YOU put into your education at school?
3. Maybe you needed a "Vicky Slaughter" of your own when you were in school. Many students just become part of "the wall" either by choice or by following the leads of their parents (apples don't fall far from the trees).
No, I am not going to try and prove you wrong. I'm only saying that you are just one opinion as am I. I do admire your decision to "retire", but are you really "retired" if you are homeschooling your children? You talk about Americans being brainwashed, but if you totally subscribe to the referred website in your entry (as you appear to do), you are in the same category; you are just in a different camp.

We have to wear a uniform at work.

Wearing uniforms is a harbinger of bringing the nazi culture to our society. NO MORE UNIFORMS AT WORK!!! Soon I will be goose stepping to the payroll office!!!

Anonymous

I think the point is that the public school system can't possibly work for everyone, and uniforms seem to be another attempt to make everyone think, look, act, and LEARN the same way. If I'm not mistaken, two of our greatest Americans were home schooled--Abe Lincoln, and Thomas Edison. Of course, they were special to begin with, but the question you have to ask is, how many other special people have gotten lost in the public school systems? We will never know. Schools are great for someone who wants to go on to sell insurance, but they do nothing for the artistic, the inventive, the spiritual. In fact, schools discourage those people. But look around, listen. Do you see art everywhere, in architecture and on TV? Do you hear music constantly? How important is religion to our society? Our schools need to WAKE up and start to nurture our children instead of trying to shape them, and stop trying to force a round peg into a square hole.

You wrote a very good comment. Some of the happiest people are those that really enjoy the work that they do, even if the money is not great. "Compulsory schooling" is kind of education that fits all. A lot of the subjects that were a requirement were a waste of time for me. I do agree that reading, spelling and arithmetic are important to everybody. I don't know what kind of courses are presently being taught but I have always been a critic of schools. They should educate people about the "real world" such as marriage, divorces, credit card debt, yellow journalism, dirty politics and other topics. Why do we have so many divorces? Why aren't marriage or relationship courses taught? Or courses about responsibility?

I have learned much more on my own through books from the library and now from the internet than from school.

A great course to teach in school is about "common sense" which most of the population is lacking in. We don't have enough "individual thinkers" but too many members of the "collective society" who cannot think for themselves. These people don't have a clue about what is really going on. They rely on newspapers and TV to pick who to vote for. They watch too much garbage on TV such as American Idol, wrestling, sports, Jerry Springer and other TV shows. You have a lot of these "collective society" members posting comments on these news blogs. You can tell from their comments that they are not very bright or informed because they cannot think for themselves. They believe everything that the news prints, even the "opinions" of the editor or the comments of people who spread rumors and lies on these news blogs.

Parents now expect the schools to do the work of raising their children for them, children that they probably didn't really want in the first place. That's why most people like our schools, because the way it is is easy for parents. Home schooling takes effort and commitment. Jobs are easy, too, and working for yourself take effort. But our society is at a crossroads, and I think things are changing for the better.

When you are back in school, do you try to skate from your peers as you have done from various music artists in almost of your blogs?
I can also see that you have become quite the brown noser to your teachers from how you wrote direct lines to them.
Hopefully one or more of your instructors will in fact give you a reality check and explain the real reason the Register let you write your non thinking blogs, and if you are so intrigued in journalism, you must be creative and stop writing about how a song makes you feel, or does my uniform make my bottom look fat.
It's hard to tell you to grow up when you are playing in an adult arena and still have the puppy ways.

Nothing has changed, as you see Nicky boy is a nephew to one of the Register owners. So they let him have his own blog to write his remedial blogs. Hence keeping little Nicky out of the way of the working adults and making himself feel as if he is a contributor.
To sum it all up he is child playing on his computer and trying to be like the real journalists, and deletes what he doesn't agree with.

Why was Milla's first outstanding post deleted?! I have seen this website allow the most vile, crude, obscene comments to remain undeleted, yet when Milla simply stated her opinion about the SR, it is removed. Did the truth hurt your feelings, Mr. White? It is ridiculous that you deleted a posting that was NOT abusive in any way, yet you allow the worst, most heinous ones to fester on here for days. I do not know who Milla is, but when I read her earlier post... that you have now deleted... I certainly agreed with her. I came back here again to read it and was going to express my agreement with it, and it's inexplicably gone. You people at the SR sure like to shove YOUR biased opinions in your readers faces, but when someone writes to state their opinion of the SR, I guess you cannot take it. Mr. White, please don't ask for "our thoughts" if you don't want to read them.

You sure have generated an interesting discussion with this one. I'm glad (and proud) you're excited about returning to SHS and willing to do what it takes to be academically successful. BTW education does matter. You have a SR blog because you stepped up to the plate when others kids were offered a chance to express themselves and chose not to seize the opportunity. You did what you had to do every step of the way. Yes - you are still a "puppy". It's too bad so many of your readers don't understand adolescent development and that your intense feelings and reactions to songs, injustices, etc. are normal and necessary - just like falling when a toddler learns to walk. Passion is sometimes scary to those who have none. As you return to school remember most of the adults there want to help you learn - be receptive - learning is a two way street. And also remember if you happen upon adults who don't care, are not committed, or seem detached you can learn a lot how not to be. Surround yourself with people who encourage you to be the best you can be while maintaining your spirit.

Are many Americans inclusive of numerous Ohioans spoiled rotten whiney children?

Personally last week, I noticed that the Huron Co. Fair and the river festivals in Vermillion and Lorain appeared to be very well attended. I attended the Fair and drove by the festivals.

Nationally to date, the new Batman movie has taken in almost a half billion dollars.

I thought that Bush had ruined the economy and people had no jobs or money?

These BLOGS are so fun because they are like fishing holes stocked with idiots. This particular topic has been pretty quiet but I think I might have caught a whopper.

First off ED, I had to read your post several times to actually understand what you were trying to say. Even invoking the use of my secret vocabulary decoder ring; to make sure I didn’t miss any priceless crumbs from your cranial cracker barrel.

May I suggest in the future when addressing the “numerous Ohioans spoiled rotten whiney children” you write in manner they might understand, thus not losing your point!

What does Batman have to do with this topic? Anyone spending more than $2510 on medicine, $200+ a month, is probably ill, elderly or disabled or worse. Highly unlikely are they standing in lines at movies or attending “river” festivals. Read the topic ED!

By the way, where in the scheme of things does a half a billon spent on the Caped Crusader compare with the modern day Crusader’s $200,000,000 per day spent in Iraq? Could we buy a little health care with that ED? Maybe…

I have to wonder ED, what kind of life you must live. Evidently not affected by $4 a gallon gas, $15 beef roast, $4 for a gallons of milk, rising property taxes, making fun of people who run or need soup kitchens. How lucky you must be.

Be careful when you drive in your rose-colored glasses that you don’t hit any of the “numerous Ohioans spoiled rotten whiney children” standing in line for the next Batman movie… OK Ed?

Parents exclaim that buying uniforms is less expensive…less work…less “whatever”. Look, if you thought parenting was going to be easy, you were obviously wrong. I laugh when I hear parents complain about money, time and how they want things easier. Being a proactive parent is NOT easy. There isn’t anything easy or cheap about being a parent. Before having a child, people need to decide if they have the money and time. Yes, clothes cost money, whether it’s a pair of khakis or blue jeans. In fact, many people can purchase designer clothes – or interesting and unique clothes from thrift stores. The clothes can be “fun” and unique to fit any kid’s style. That would be less expensive than paying the full amount for new uniforms. It’s difficult to find a pair of khaki pants and polo shirts with no logos or markings at a thrift store. Stores can hold Sanduskians hostage because the stores know we don’t have any choice but to buy a specific kind of pant and shirt from them.

I have applied to the Perkins School District because of this. It really is too bad; I am a parent who cares about my child’s education and am a supporter of his teachers. My son’s teachers are important to me as well as his academics. I don’t allow myself to worry about how much it will cost me to clothe my child or how much time it takes to shop for clothes. I knew he would need clothes and my time before his conception.

There are empirical studies on school uniforms on both sides of the aisle. There is in-depth scholarly research that provides they are effective for many reasons and there is just as much study which provides the clothes don’t make the person. It’s difficult to conceive that my fellow adults actually think clothes make a person. That’s child’s play. That’s what many teenagers think…cool clothes make you cool or posits you that you money. Adults are saying the very same thing by forcing uniforms. In research, people only look for what they want to look for. This school administration only looked for the research which implies uniforms will solve their problems. Really, it’s cowardly. Leadership should solve the problems – not forcing an institutionalized look. Using a band-aid will not work in the long term.

I’ll be a proud a member of the Perkins Pirates even though I live just a block from a Sandusky Elementary School. Sandusky will lose an up and coming exceptional student and young leader as well as parents who care about the academics and social welfare of their child.

Wow

I am a Sandusky parent who is definitely seeking a fresh start. I have never made it a secret about how I feel about the uniforms. They say we will save money... I say, "AND HOW?" My kids still need daily wear and they are growing out of the uniforms & staining them so fast that I had to invest in new uniforms three times in one year per child! These kids don't want to wear a uniform to school so they definitely aren't wearing them outside of school including the $7-$10 belts. As for the belts, my little boy has enough trouble getting his pants unfastened as it is let alone adding a lock to that! Plus, finding low-cost uniforms is simply a joke!
Those are facts but this would be no fun without adding my opinions too so here goes: Wearing and creating your own styles is part of self-expression, individualism and even personality which has been completely diminished with uniforms. We had a dress-code in place but the system was tired of fighting kids about bagging clothes, sagging pants, short skirts and breaking those guidelines in general. I believe they got lazy about enforcing these guidelines. Now, kids are getting sent home for colored socks or a lost belt which is ridiculous! I understand why baggy clothes and short skirts might cause problems. These kids shouldn't be allowed to let their underwear hang out or be given the ability to hide weapons but being reprimanded and losing education (by being sent home) over socks and belts...WTH??? Oh & guess what? The students still know who is poor or rich because they have attended many years with the same kids. Also, shoes may as well have the price-tags still attached because these kids know their name-brands and newest styles still. When one student is wearing hand-me-down and Salvation Army uniforms and another wears crisp brand-spankin new name-brand uniforms ~ it's evident!
I'm curious how long it took to find all of those "happy about uniforms" kids and parents that they wrote the original story about. Maybe it was a fiction story or they spent a year prior to living the experience to gather these opinions.
One of my children is home-schooled now and the other is being enrolled in Perkins this year but I thank you for letting me vent anyway = )

You can't rely on the e-paper coming up at a regular time. A lot of people want to read the paper before going to work and having the paper showing up after everyone has gone to work is unacceptable. The paper should come on at 6:00 a.m. and no later for those who have no time after work to read the paper. Saturday and Sunday's are worse yet coming up around 10:00 or later or not coming up at all.

It’s time to raise whiny Ricky’s taxes. The bleeding heart liberal big government lovin’ rich boy writes like he ain't payin' his fair share in order to help fund State entitled healthcare for the rapidly increasing population of elderly and infirmed.

Ms. Daugherty:

Kindly write a piece about the results of the insurance forum.

I recently read an article where it stated that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) wanted to take on the regulation of equity-indexed annuities.

The SEC wants them treated as investment products and not insurance contracts. Insurance agents who now sell them would have to become securities licensed.

I’ve seen the commercials for annuities on TV. They like to throw around the term ‘guaranteed income.’ If the insurance co. issuing the annuity should go out of business, they could become worthless. Some ‘guarantee.’

I’m old enough to remember the failure of annuity issuer Baldwin-United in the early 80s and the fiasco and financial loss it caused.

Annuities can have their place in a balanced financial retirement plan, but IMO, they are often oversold and to the wrong people for the wrong reasons.

I think that would be a great idea, but the Register wouldn't allow it because Crackhead and 007 tell it like it is whether you agree or not, they put it all up front.

Well… tickle my toes pink, my new friend Ed wrote me a note! I’m impressed, and you cleaned up your grammar a little bit too. In light of my new found respect for you I’m going to address you as MR. ED.

I loved the fishing analogies MR. ED but from where I’m standing if I look in my CREEL I think I see a bug-eyed whopper with a George Will bowtie and a Ronald Reagan Christmas card in his back gill, all gaped mouth, looking back at me…

I can’t believe you are going to hector me for “wasting time at 10:41am”, how old are you MR. ED? Not all of us are in bed at 9:00pm like the president. You must know that in this blistering American economy we “workin poor” are at the millstone all different hours of the day. Come on MR. ED!

And yes, I do enjoy red meat; I especially enjoy chewing on glib wags such as you, thanks MR ED.

I don’t disagree with you on the amount of wealth in the country; my problem is the redistribution of this wealth. More and more money is going in to the pockets of fewer and fewer people. I don’t care if you have money. But I do care when my co-worker’s job is eliminated in order to raise the stock price so some piker like you doesn’t complain that is portfolio is tanking.

Windfall profit tax? That’s code for the oil companies aren’t stealing the American consumer blind? You own EXXON stock too MR ED?

We all can’t be millionaires, deep down inside even Rush knows this. Who would cook in restaurants, sell high priced gas, mow your yard, millionaires? I don’t thinks so. So is it really too much to ask that the guy cooking your brunch can take his kid to the doctor when he needs to and not when he can afford to? It seems like every other industrialized country in the world has already answered this question.

Please write back MR ED, I’ll give you one more response before I move on to the next pretentious, presumptive, pollyannaish, vamped up mutterer of the Rush Limbaugh-Bill O’Rielly lemmings. (Was that sentence too pretentious Mr. Ed?) I so enjoy the rain of bull crap from the mouths of Republicans. (or chicken crap in your case)

To Fresh Start…

Great post. I posted: Kids cost money…

I totally agree with you. Excellent points! When administration looks to make a decision, they look for empirical studies that support only their desires. They found studies that proved students faired better wearing uniforms than those who did not. Yet, there are documented studies (empirical evidence) that show there are no improvements in schools who wear uniforms. We are all smart enough to know that clothing doesn’t make us more intelligent. That is scientifically impossible. As far as socially – our children are smart enough to see who is wearing the latest and greatest shoes, jewelry, belts, coats, etc…

I have read studies that provide that students who wear uniforms throughout their K-12 education are socially inept when they arrive at college. As much as the educators in Sandusky are trying to say that all people are equal…that just isn’t reality. We should all be treated equal…but logically and philosophically we just aren’t. It is better our children know that now than when they attend a large college campus far away from home. If my child is to experience reality, I would rather it be in an environment where I can help him understand it.

My child received his acceptance letter from Perkins today. Who knows…they may go to uniforms one day too. Perhaps Perkins is waiting to conduct a five year study of how Sandusky has faired. I don’t think my child will go to school (not skip), be a better athlete, achieve higher grades, and give more respect just because of what he wears on the outside of himself. He will only be those things if he has a positive influence in his life. He will host these attributes because of what is on the inside.

But in all fairness, maybe you were there not knowing all the facts. Hmmmmm! If my memory serves me correct as a teacher you argued against double dipping, yet did you not work for Sandusky City after retiring? Again, in all fairness maybe you didn’t have all the facts. It’s not double dipping. Decisions and how we react to others need to be based on facts and not emotions. If elected, how will you go about making decisions that are in the best interest of the counties residents?

I will offer a few words here about my experience. You can find more details about my experience on my web site at www.mikeprinty.com.

To set the time frame of my experience, I graduated from Perkins in 1965 and then from John Carroll in 1969.

I started my business carreer with a large manufacturing company as a Human Resource professional. With this company I became a Divisional Human Resource Manager and provided servicies to 2500 employees over several states.

I then became a vice president of human resources for a privately held busines in Columbus, Ohio that had 1,100 employees at the time. I now own a local human resource consulting company.

I have helped companies grow and helped them shrink. I helped manage union and non-union facilities. I have been on several site selection committies that expanded company busineses. I have helped companies aquire new businesses and helped them divest and sell businesses.

Throughout my 38 years in business, I have always been the one to listen to employees and represent their interest to management. This is very similar to listening to citizens and making sure their concerns are known as government makes decisions.

Being the man I am, I read your John Taylor Gatto website before even thinking about expressing my own opinion, as I feel being open minded to others opinions is better than always thinking I'm right. It all seemed really well put together until I noticed that it hasn't even been updated in 5 YEARS.
Propaganda, be it for school uniforms, or against, be it for or against school in general, is still just propaganda. It's still not "thinking outside the box"!
That would be exactly what Michelle IS doing! I mean seriously, a teenager EXCITED about going back to school and getting an education? Now THAT'S thinking outside the box! I wish I had Michelles attitude when I was in school! Maybe I COULD have gone to college and done more with my life had I cared as much then as I do now.
I suppose your right, tho. Noone would EVER want to listen to Carnegie, (as in the guy who brought public libraries to people), Ford, or anyone else with a working brain, right?
