Miss Lisa Brown likes to use incentives to encourage her students to try hard and excel. She told her students they could have a "Silly String" battle with her if they cooperated in class and did their work. Good behavior, attendance, and doing their best kept students from receiving a tally against them. The students who received less than five tallies were able to participate.

THERE ARE some -- and rightfully so -- who will always argue that there is a better way to do things than to tax The People.
We count ourselves among those who believe that The People are generally over-taxed, and deserve a lot more consideration than is given them by the so-called "leaders" among us who seem to thrive on taxes and dwell on the subject of "MORE!" No constructive ideas.
