Any more news on whether or not Ms. Blanford has been charged with manslaughter? Her friends in Payson have been a record to state that she has had a recent history of strokes/seizures. How was she allowed to continue to drive? Is it becuase of her "connections?" I think the famlies of those that perished should get a lawyer on the hook, pronto. This a sensless tragedy that could have been avoided. Sad.4 weeks ago
This place is clearly a terrific place to stop by. Our daughter loves the Tea options! Friday and Saturday nights are a rare option to catch some good local musical talent. Sozo's message is clear and focused. It's all about others and not about themselves. We need more local businesses like this!Apr 11, 2012
Your implication that extends over from sentence #3 in to sentence #4 is simply defined in one word; "parenting." It is our responsibility to direct our children in the ways that define our family unit. Do you think this is wrong? At what age should a child under the age of 18 be put in an environment that may do more damage to what the parents are attempting to do at home? I am guessing that you are not a parent.
I have never encontered a human with a harmful personality. What I have found is that some humans can act or speak harmful. But to imply that my parenting responsilbilty in not having our childern watch a Micheal Moore documentary in class be considered as "harmful" is well, assinine and ignorant on your part.
The majority of the problem children today are not to be blamed. It's the parenting or lack there of. "The apple does not fall far from the tree."
As for the Bible being taught in school; It's not going to be mandatory; take another elective or better yet - give up one of your class hours and walk across a city street to seminary.Mar 5, 2012
@hammer.....Wow! You have all the answers. I guess you missed the comment where the coach stated that he leaves his starters in for one series at the beginning of the 3rd quarter, which is exactly what happened. No comprehensionon your part? About your "stat padding" comment......what percentage of coaches in HS FB and higher look at the their team stats at half? A lot! That's why they have multiple coaches to chart that kind of stuff. Your karma comment is laughable, at best. If they lose in the playoffs, it wont be because of some mythical mantra generated by some humans that have no self-worth. They may never win a championship , but a truly great HS FB program is not defined by its championships but by the character of its current and former players. Some teams have both and that it truly a testament to their school, admin, coaches, parents and the players that listen to good teaching: about life and FB.
Your post included poor grammar and spelling at best. I speak volumes of your class.Oct 22, 2011
I live in Ft. Collins for almost 19 years and watched the downtown grow exponentially well. If Mr. Short can duplicate that sucessful area, Mesa will be doing something that other valley cites will try to emulate. The Ft. Collins downtown was not perfect but we traveled from the south part of town where we lived, drove past all of the box stores and spend the majority of our expendable income downtown. Good luck, old habits are hard to break.Dec 1, 2010
