Dana, you're right on target! Our children should be exposed to what is benevolent for them in terms of moral principles. The school should not sell the soul of his youth just for revenues to their coffers. Such action will only benefit BIG Pepsi, and will be detrimental to the students health. After all sodas are not good for you. To reject Pepsi, or whoever is a moral action worth offering our children!
Selling the soul to the DEVIL? Oh, please no! We already have enough "devils" in Wa Hi...and these ones are the good ones!
What's next? Changing the name to BIG GULP High? Let's be prepare to fight it, Dana!
Let's call them Bertyway supermarkets!
I'm all for a new science building for our High School. I wonder if there is an existing partnrship with the CC and with Whitman science department for HS students to do mini-interships in Science.
The new police building e.g. on second street has exellent forensic laboratories which are suitable for students to "shadow" officers for a few hours at a time under some sort of agreement. Just touring these facilities would give students scientific insight and curiosity from the exellent detectives we have there.
Like these institutions there are many others in town involved in scientific applications in which our students could tap into.
I'm sorry...I might be a bit off track here, but a bit of creativity could help others who might be substantially more capable than I am in operationalizing the ideas suggested above. Who knows, Wa Hi might not need that many one-million-dollar-each science rooms after all!
The commissioner is not a legislator, therefore not powerful enough to protect "monopolies" or "cartels". He regulates according to laws. As you well know secrecy and scams are buried until they are brought to the surface by, let's say, media exposes such as the Seattle Times one.
If a group of companies conspire to keep the so called "proprietary" ways of managing information and data which should be public domain, for the sole purpose of maximizing their profits, this behavior is typical of monopolies...or cartels, if you which.
Any way, I thank you for your legitimate interest on this matter.You're doing it with intelligent arguments and civil media manners.
Keep it up, please!
You "believe" the commissioner is a democrat...or you're sure of it? I never said anything about the commissioner, but now that you stated your "believe" he nevertheless opened the case for investigation...and this in itself is mighty meritorious.
My point is, in the end, that legislation which favors the powerful, to the detriment of "the people" is usually republican, always with the excuse of the "free enterprise" malarkey!
Now we have the ACA which is run by private insurance companies, not by government!
But if private insurance companies "bilk" the Government monies/ subsidies by extravagant charges, this is equivalent to screwing you and me out of our tax contributions.
As the fortune cookie says, " Too many wolves, take-e out-e a few"...but not too many!
Who on earth should trust Premera Blue Cross, supposedly a non profit organization? Back in 2012 the Seattle Times exposed PBC, Regency and Grouphealth about their stockpiling billions while increasing rates at the same time.
Obviously they are not interested in transparency so they can keep medical procedures rates as high as they can. If Cleveland Clinic, e.g. can offer a better deal for episode of heart procedures/ treatment at a fraction of PBC, and with better outcome, this data is not available for local consumption.
As usual these "monopolies" are protected by Republican legislators to the detriment of society as as a whole.
Mr. Conetto has the right to free speech, therefore the right to say stupid, childish, silly things in a futile attempt to be funny. His letter does not contribute anything of value to our community, and one has to wonder who in the UB editorial team offered him our readers/ audience for him to spew such a mundane, idiotic rhetoric.
Mr. Conetto himself is doing a disservice to his own reputation as a serious poster in this media. After all he is a Conetto, and not a Cornetto!
This is another prototype of a red herring from your bag of tricks. When you are at a loss you lash out with far fetch personal insults in the most incoherent fashion possible. Your comments are like IEDs to distract others and conveniently hide your lack of relevant arguments.
Please f--- off!...as in fizz...
If you like your cheap, $15.00 a month health plan, only covering for one doctor's visit a year and one rectal examination every 5 years; and only pays for 100 aspirins a year...and then expect the tax payers to pay for your catastrophic health problems! Of course you cannot keep it! But if you want more than one rectal examination every 5 years, you need to pay a bit more...and we, the tax payer will be delighted to pay for the others.
You are lucky you have the VA, a government sponsored Affordable Health Care Plan, so be appreciative to your loving Government!
Jamming Ms. Jarrett into this is another of your well known red herrings!
