I noticed this article is taken verbatim from an article that appeared in my Tumbleweeds Health Center news feed. That article did not credit an author. Did you write it and they stole it or vice-versa?
I have eaten at Karuna's for at least fifteen years and love it dearly. I generally do the lunch buffet where the selection is limited (veggie and meat sides) but the food is excellent. And, quality and range of selection at dinners is much better than lunch buffet and prices are always reasonable, especially on the duck! The dining room is dingy and cramped, but it is great Thai food at a great price. Worth the inconvenience.
Sounds like the perfect job for Tim Vanderpool!
A number of years ago I checked into BASIS' admission policy and discovered a process of weeding out students. Students were required to enter BASIS at the grade level they tested at...not based on the grade level they had most recently passed at their public school. So, if you were under-performing, you repeated the last grades even if you had "passed" that grade. So, I would imagine that most student and parents in that situation would probably not attend. This would mean that any class of students at BASIS would all begin working at grade level, not always the case in public schools.
I do not know if this policy is still in place.
Here is Article I, Section 2 of the Nevada State Constitution: Purpose of government; paramount allegiance to United States. All political power is inherent in the people[.] Government is instituted for the protection, security and benefit of the people; and they have the right to alter or reform the same whenever the public good may require it. But the Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers as the same have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States; and no power exists in the people of this or any other State of the Federal Union to dissolve their connection therewith or perform any act tending to impair[,] subvert, or resist the Supreme Authority of the government of the United States. The Constitution of the United States confers full power on the Federal Government to maintain and Perpetuate its existance [existence], and whensoever any portion of the States, or people thereof attempt to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly resist the Execution of its laws, the Federal Government may, by warrant of the Constitution, employ armed force in compelling obedience to its Authority.
THis seems to make it very clear that the decisions of the US Supreme Court in granting the federal government the right to retain land that it purchased or took by war, i.e. the land now occupied by the state of Nevada.
I have been saying for ten years that the real goal of "education reform" and "vouchers" is the destruction of the public school system. The recent legislation expanding vouchers is a major step in this direction. How unfortunate for Arizonans that our Supt. of Public Instruction is now leading the charge to further damage our public schools. Before long, the only students in public schools will be those that charters and private schools don't want to deal with...those with disabilities and non-English speakers.
I wrote to Terri Proud and politely disagreed with her position on having the state designate the members of a Bond board for Pima County. She wrote me an EXTREMELY rude and insulting reply. Don't these people realize that WE are their employers and they are responsible to the voters and constituents? I have never seen such an arrogant group. They overturn voter initiatives at a whim. What kind of philosophy of representative democracy is that?
