Well, a few weeks ago, I wrote about how kids were being punished for not be up to date on their lunch accounts. They were getting peanut butter and jelly, tuna fish or fruit and vegetables.

The state also ranks 13th in the nation in teen suicides between the ages of 15 to 17 years old. Since 2009, … Continue reading Is Arizona putting too much pressure on teachers?
Allow me to start this blog with a simple premise – some people talk without thinking or knowing the facts. An example of this is late night cable talk show host Bill Maher. This is a guy who wants thousands of Americans to lose their jobs and their livelihoods just to unseat a president he dislikes.
