I see you’re at it again. Perhaps corporate America needs an education on bonuses. Gentlemen, bonuses are given out when a company has been SUCCESSFUL! When a company shows a profit, the executives who made that profit happen through ingenuity, hard work and sacrifice receive a “bonus”. Now, if a company is near bankruptcy, requires taxpayer money to “bail them out” and shows LOSSES then they are NOT “successful”. Therefore, no bonuses. You’re brass balls are pretty damn shiny.

and the surrounding area affected by the tragedy there. I am so sorry for your loss. Especially for the loss of a Deputy’s wife and her small eighteen month old child. Random shootings never make sense.

Now, I’m all for educating my kids about our “watershed”. However, I object to money being spent on a political agenda in the classroom when nine teachers are on the chopping block and the district has to cut $481,000 from the budget. Yes, I know it’s all “different” money, but frankly it’s all paid for by MY TAXES. Here’s the thing. Logging isn’t evil. And frankly, I’ve seen trees grow back in a “watershed” after they’ve been logged. I’ve yet to see a tree grow back where a Starbucks is built. Until I hear a little of THAT in your presentation, I’ll continue to object to your visits. I don’t like preachy. I live here so that I can have a little balance in a world that seems to object to logging, fishing, farming or any attempt to obtain natural resources. There IS a way to continue to protect our environment, our fish, our resources without making those who make a living here out to be “evil”. Now, I will say you were relatively restrained compared to some of what I’ve seen, but it bothers me that I’m PAYING for this with my taxes yet the government cuts funding for schools. Is it really worth the money to teach my children that a man who logs his land for money is “ruining” the watershed? So now, to keep the Redneck from blowing a gasket, I have to go every Friday morning to hear your spiel. I think you should start serving drinks.

I love that we’re participating in a district wide “Food For Scouting” drive collecting food for the local food banks. On Saturday, the Dirt Faced Okie Boys and I wandered around Fortuna to drop off plastic bags at homes with information for local residents. Next Saturday, March 21st in the morning, we’ll be picking them up for food banks in our area. It was an opportunity to teach my kids about those less fortunate than we are. I’m grateful for this activity.
