It would have been wonderful if we would have had such problems way back after the Depression. We went to three different country schools prior to them being closed and the county buying buses to transport the kids to a school in town. The greatest thing that happened was we could go out for sports. Most of the farm kids did not have electricity nor running water, so taking a shower after sports was a luxury. All of the extra items making things more enjoyable were not yet enjoyed by the schools by then.
There are a few of us who have seen the rise and fall of this great country. We were born in the Depression when there was no money for anyone. The Democrats were a party which was mainly responsible for the winning of the Second World War and I came from a strong Democrat family.

Let's evaluate our government. We have disasters happening almost every day in our beautiful country. Disasters are happening almost daily around the world and our government has ships, airplanes and everything ready to move in an instant to help every country in the world and has for many years. This is tax payer money and borrowed money to try to buy favors from most countries of the world. Did the poor people of these countries benefit from the money we sent? Absolutely not; only the rulers and rich people benefited.
After surgery a year ago, my life has been learning to walk again and watching television. The two people involved have been greatly misrepresented.
The new multimillion dollar football field and track at the high school brings back wonderful memories of my high school years of sports. These type of facilities were nowhere available in those days.
Our new college apartments in Soldotna sound wonderful. One problem when do you study? That was the main purpose of going to college.
