Hope the joke doesn’t turn around on us
I notice in the Brandon Sun the jokes and cartoons about U.S. President Trump, and then I read of the mass influx of illegal refugees crossing Manitoba’s border. I hope we don’t see that the joke’s on us!
Have a little patience during spring melt
To the disrespectful person in the large pickup driving behind a disabled elderly gentleman on a mobility scooter on Feb. 21, if you could take a moment to lay off your horn, you would’ve realized the man was just trying to avoid the extremely large puddles that happen every year when this strange occurrence known as melting happens when snow and ice reach a temperature at which it can no longer keep its solid form.
School board should be paying us to tutor our own kids at home!
So the Brandon School Division claims that in order to enhance something, dollars must be thrown at it. Dollars have been thrown every year to support an academic decline. My wife and I have to tutor our kids at home nearly every night because of the lack of serious work going on in school. My kids do very little writing. The math they do in school is atrocious. The discipline is non-existent. They spend way too much time dancing, making useless posters and playing with iPads. Yet, we the public, are supposed to accept another tax increase because it will “enhance” our schools. The public sector has no problem spending other people’s money with zero accountability.
