Feel Good Report Card Signs

Submitted by mabeldog on Sun, 05/27/2012 - 13:59.

 Last year when the Ohio Department of Education released their scorecard information on all state schools, the Cleveland Municipal School District scored 1 (that's right ONE) out of 26. FYI the 10th Grade reading score was the only passing entry BARELY squeaking by with a 76.4%, 1.6% above the bare minimum. A very few schools improved their status and new signs were rushed to the printer and hung proudly above the entry door. For all the other schools, that did WORSE, which was most of them, the previous year's sign was left to flutter and fade in the brutal Cleveland elements.

Does Gary Sautter live in Toledo....

Submitted by mabeldog on Sun, 05/27/2012 - 13:41.

 Oh where oh where does Gary Sautter, Deputy Sheriff of Wasting Tax Dollars on Unnecessary Cleveland Schools live? Does he live in Cleveland??? Or Cuyahoga County?? Or does he live in Toledo? And if so where does he stay when "working" here? At a hotel? At a flop house? And who pays for his accomodation? Him...or the taxpayers in Cleveland? Is he on a per diem for his food? Is his BBF "Jerry" from Mansfield still in charge of all the actually buildings?

Cleveland Teacher's Union Head lives in North Ridgeville

Submitted by mabeldog on Sun, 05/27/2012 - 12:19.

 All the finger pointing and threats by fearless Teacher's Union BOSS David Quolke screaming at impoverished Cleveland property owner's to raise their taxes now don't affect him personally. The Hypocrite-In-Chief lives in a home on Hilary Drive in North Ridgeville which he and his wife purchased on August 19, 1998 for $189,000. He wouldn't be caught dead sending his own children to school in Cleveland. They are certainly not up to his rigid double standard

CMSD--the sad truth (and no one is paying attention)

I wish I wrote this comment to the PD's soft peddle "in support of teachers" (gee gosh, GCP just figured out they NEED the teachers to push support for a levy...):

Within this article there are two messages. The first, of course, is another call by the Plain Dealer to pass a school levy.

How To Make Homemade Dog Food

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Fri, 04/20/2012 - 04:00.
Homemade-Dog-Food-300x199.jpg

Back in the days before Iams or Purina, what did our grandparents feed their dogs? Table scraps mostly or their own recipes. There weren’t the hundreds of dog food varieties as there are now. After World War II, Gaines and Kennel Ration began with canned horse meat. Mostly as a way of getting rid of surplus horses and using up cans made for the war effort. It wasn’t until the 60’s and 70’s when dog food really come into its own.
