Grants Pass Schools; Thanks to North Middle, Parkside Elementary

North Middle School Grants Pass, Oregon
In this post I would like to express my thanks to North Middle School and Parkside Elementary School of Grants Pass Oregon for the many of the staff’s excellent care of my children, in particular Timothy (who has high functioning autism) and Danielle (who is/was also need some special education).
See also this resource:
Grants Pass Information, events, climate zones, police, fire

While this may not seem like much to point this out, I would like to preface this post by stating my school years were terrible with one teacher who was beyond reprehensible (many of my classmates have confirmed this at my most recent reunion), as well Michelle has had difficulties with poor school staff care at GPHS and at Palm School in Hacienda Heights, CA.
So for me this is very refreshing to see excellent staff care by these two schools.

Starting with Parkside Elementary School, both Timothy and Danielle has had excellent teachers starting with Mrs. Hammervold for his first grade class who was an awesome Christian that showed both love, yet firmness he needed (she also has a special needs child herself which probably helps with her understanding). Timothy finished school with Mr. Pinster who also was excellent in dealing with Timothy’s difficulties such as not understanding when to speak.
The special education teacher is Mrs. Cutillo who although she had a difficult start with Timothy, she never gave up and really tried with the best of her abilities to help both us (me and my wife Joanne) and others at school mainline Timothy.
Mrs. Cutillo also did an excellent job with Danielle, although she was much easier to work with, so it is her work with Timothy that impressed me over the years.
The year end trip to the coast to see tide pools full of starfish and other sea life (as well as Ocean World and more) for graduating 5th graders is a neat event as well that provided my kids with awesome memories.
See my product link for starfish I sell in my business:

Joann Pilcher was the vocal music instructor who did an excellent job with Danielle and deserves our thanks as well.
Finally the principle is Diane Mease whom took much over her valuable time to help with Timothy.

North Middle School has had all three of my kids. Michelle (my oldest) was home schooled by my sister who is a College instructor by profession as she was not ready for elementary school when we first moved here while Dr. Safko counseled her through difficulties thrust upon her while in the Los Angeles area (he still continues to see her as of this blog entry and does an excellent job in earning her trust, while attempting to help her deal with her the past and more importantly how she deals with the present).

Starting with the principle; Mr. Dan Smith, I cannot say enough about him, as I consider him a friend and probably the best principle anyone could ask for their children.
He is a compassionate and understanding person who understands others struggle in (he also has a special needs child, which I personally think helps him understand others). It is clear he loves the kids in his charge and treats them, his staff, and parents with respect, as well he is a good Christian man that does not wear this on his sleeve, rather he shows this through his actions (which is what I believe the Bible truly asks of us).
See this blog post: My Thoughts Standing for Truth

There are too many teachers to name them all and although some have not been as good as others (I recall a science teacher that was not fair to Michelle), this has been the exception and the as a whole most have been excellent. The special education teachers that help Timothy and Danielle have been very patient & understanding.

Grants Pass High; since I am primarily writing this post thank those who have helped change some of my views towards public schools, I will not comment too much here, as so far I am much less impressed with this schools dealings with Michelle, in particular the Counseling Department that cannot seem to even contact others such as her counselor that has spent years with her, nor deal with the horrible teasing she receives.
I will leave it at this for negatives (maybe another post someday for this subject).
I will say that Mr. Dennis DeCasas (a special education instructor) has been excellent with my daughter and it shows in how she relates to him and how he genuinely cares for students in his “care” (Ken Belcher was also an excellent teacher that showed genuine compassion toward her).

BTW, I recommend concerned conservative Christian parents avoid the website GreatSchools.net as this website ONLY publishes concerned parent letters that meet narrow minded editorials that are only positive or “pseudo negative”.
This is unfortunately common nowadays where many could do well to Read Luke 10 and the parable of the Good Samaritan and stop following in the dishonest actions of President Obama

Media Lies, Half Truths for Obama; Cover up more



Media Lies/ half truths cover ups for Obama and other socialists.
Obama, Pinocchio Nose, Pelosi, Hammer and Sickle, Biden, Dunce

What is the most bothersome to me about the plethora of Obama half truths/lies is how the media is right behind him with a giant broom to cover up his trail of excrement.

After the Joe Wilson incident, I was taken aback by Pelosi and other extreme radicals and her willing media accomplices to act like the liberals are above the fray when in fact Senator Reid (Nevada) has yet to apologize to President Bush for this exact same statement, as well as the many who have treated him with extreme disrespect in his addresses. I was also thinking what a liar Reid was while watching this dishonest attempt to paint the whistle blower (Joe Wilson) as the villain about calling President Obama on his lies and half truths.
Reference: Obama Failures, lies and half truths



Further more, Joe Wilson was correct in his assessment (although it is debatable as to how he should have delivered this message), yet the media has the audacity to state that Obama was telling the truth.
Sorry ABC, CNN, MSNBC, etc; but a half truth is still a lie, when he (Obama) knows that the way the bill is written that the enforcement of keeping illegal aliens off any government sponsored health plan.

The Bill does state, “Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.”
However,
The bill contains no verification requirement or enforcement process for citizenship or legal residency, as exists for other federal benefit programs. The only verification required for the subsidies pertains to family income. Beyond that, as the Congressional Research Service report notes, everything is left in the hands of the Health Choices Commissioner.
See: Congressional Research Service: ObamaCare will cover illegal immigrants

Let me put it this way as an analogy for those who think Obama is telling the truth:
Lets say you have a law that makes the speed limit in front of schools 20 mph when school children are present, yet provide no fines or refuse any law enforcement, do you really expect the law to be enforced? The obvious answer is NO!.
This is how this bill is written & Obama as well as his liberal colleagues know this full well!!!

Further more, years of meddling by the high courts shows that any provision to block illegal aliens form this government plan would be thrown out.
See this excellent website for more well written historical proof of this:
Citizenship Up for Grabs; The Supreme Court and Immigration (By Mark Levin).
Also see: A True Consrvative; Doing What is Right

I guess what bothers me most about our current president is not how he is behaving, as this was predicable for anyone willing to look at his & others around him history, but that the media has totally lost all objectivity with this man (& his many radical appointments), as well as painting the good systems pointing out his lies and socialist agenda as the villains.

Pew Research Center poll on media in America
On a positive note, polls now show most Americans do not trust the media to give the correct information when they supposedly “report” the news.

See this website: Press Accuracy Rating Hits Two-Decade Low

Hopefully more Americans will send these lousy journalists packing by simply turning off their TVs, or dumping their newspaper.

Update 11/11/11;

The media still cannot help themselves; very little if anything is said about the Obama's remarks "off Mike" about Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu: "You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you" as well as the "Solar-Gate", “Fast and Furious”, & "Keystone Pipeline" scandals, YET the media goes after Hermain Cain with some of the most outrageous comments from NBC and others.

See: List of Obama Failures

Or this page for these outrageous comments from MSNBC: "MSNBC/NOV. 7: We are going to see how open the GOP is to this -- their new black friend when they find out that he is harassing blonde women, as opposed to black women. That sort of thing a black sexuality, predatory black sexuality"

Why Are Media So Determined to Crush Herman Cain's Campaign?


Whether Cain is guilty of these charges I do not know, but as legal experts have stated if this was a civil or criminal charges his defense attorney would have have a field day with the facts that 3 of these persons making the charges all came for the same Chicago connection.
See:
Cain’s accusers: Serial gold-diggers with an interesting Chicago/Obama connection

As well as Cain's character witnesses from those who know him best would say otherwise, & the fact that all these charges came a from a short period in the '90s at the NRA, NOT from his decades in business management.

See this article: David Axelrod's Pattern of Sexual Misbehavior

The bottom line is the media certainly needs to look into these charges, but they are only showing one side of the story (the side that fits their agenda as when they along with the sleeze attorney Gloria Allred ignoring the more serious charges of rape by Juanita Broaddrick against Bill Clinton).
