So god made you a bigot and made you with hate in your heart? He also made you with a HUGE ego,Read More gregg, because this has absolutely nothing to do with you. Nothing. She's not forcing anything on anyone but you act like she certainly is. Destroy your ego and your life will be much happier. All of you who think this is any of your business need to get over yourselves.

ginette marie, when someone like this is in the public eye; teaching police firefighter politicalRead More job it has everything to do with me. you can not be that delusional? or can you? toe the line and behave right.......not too much to ask

"Virtual walls"? Geezus... GPS spoofing is but one way around the geofence. The otherRead More is simply walking up to someone and saying "HEY *(&*(^^#&*(Y($*() !!!!!" Or use a different app created with a bogus email account... *sigh*. Sticks and stones people... sticks and stones... Walk it off and move on...

thats for sure, this country is turning into a bunch of pansies!!

my kid tells me that his buddy who lives over in Europe has a math book that shows a drawing of anRead More obese American eating a Cheeseburger with Plumbers Ass , as if we are a bunch of slobs over here!!! Is that nice or what???
Paula Skaggs (Editor) January 6, 2014 at 08:52 pm
Agreed, Grumpy! I grew up in Minnesota and we very rarely got ANY days off — however, I don'tRead More remember it ever being as cold as it was today!
Grumpy Old Man January 7, 2014 at 08:50 am
Funny, the editor could understand. What is there not to understand? That in Milwaukee there wereRead More many sub zero days and average temperatures were in single digits during December through January and that snow was always on the ground. That students, included myself, walked to grade school and high school, some drove to high school and that schools were never closed due to the weather. It takes that much to explain to you what the above clearly stated without all of the adjectives, adverbs, etc.

Paula - yeah - yesterday was on the colder side even for the time in Milwaukee when I was a kid - IRead More understand it was -17 in Minneapolis, by the way. I can't speak for the wind chill but I could sure feel it waiting for the bus. The ground temp in Green Bay on December 31, 1967 was -14 windchill -55 for the Ice Bowl. The ground temp was not much better in Milwaukee where I watched it (indoors) but the windchill I don't recall. Memory lane.

The article says he withdrew $70,000 from his personal bank account. Have the authorities been ableRead More to trace and perhaps start to recover the remaining money which was embezzled? I would hope they are doing something to recover it.

Particularly impressive when you consider that Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy gets the award forRead More top flight academic results even though the school has an open admissions policy. My son is at Payton now, but he went to OLMCA for K - 8th, and we love the school.

Rahm at his most manipulative: 1) give principals "control" over their budgets, 2) cutRead More funding to schools, and, 3) try not to take any of the heat.

Blaine is wasting time and energy reasoning with the moronic city machine.
Harmon June 30, 2013 at 10:19 am
Low information article. Basic info missing. What's the per student allocation? What's theRead More teacher/student ratio? How do they compare to last year? What's the long term student body population projection? How many admin positions are there as compared to teacher positions? Are any of them devoted to political graft such as "certified lawn care specialist?" (Don't laugh - evidently our Great State Legislature requires this.) What are these mysterious "specialty programs?" Lots of stuff that could rise above the USA Today/TV news level of this article.
Steve McKenzie June 14, 2013 at 08:27 am
I was heading over to my children's Field Day at Blaine as this event unfolded. Compliments to theRead More Blaine administration and staff for taking swift and cautious action.
Andy Ambrosius (Editor) June 14, 2013 at 10:05 am
No kidding. It sounds like they handled it well.
Jeff Friedman May 7, 2013 at 06:29 pm
This is great news! As someone who reads a lot of the comments on Patch, I've noticed crime and realRead More estate are probably the top hot button topics. Teenagers who believe they have a bright future are less likely to throw it away by committing crimes, using drugs, or doing other risky behavior. So, our community definitely benefits. Congrats to the students, teachers, parents, and faculty!

Wow. Are the schools that are participating in this seemingly charitable project aware of whoRead More USAgain really is? They are a for-profit company associated with an extremely sketchy Danish organization, and they do virtually nothing to help the communities they get donations from. This is detailed in this excellent article: http://www.phlmetropolis.com/2012/11/the-secret-life-of-clothing-bins.php that I suggest you read before donating. What's wrong with the Good Will or another recycler that works locally? Mary Davis, Lakeview resident
