On Children behaving badly: Has it gotten worse?
The fault varies for different situations. Kids are growing and learning and yes some of the parents are to blame. I have 3 kids each in different grades and 2 schools . There are good and bad teachers some of the teachers and administration are unprofessional and seem more like bullies to me, yet they punish the kids for doing the samethings. Not a big mystery to me where that is learned. Kids do not do well in an enviroment they are depressed about going every day. I have plenty of situations where I felt I should go to the school and get involved , but kids are worried about being retaliated by those problem people. THere is one teacher at marshall middle school who harasses the students so much over 80 students made and signed a petition about this teacher, and of course. Nothing happens . Probably because it would make it in the principals usual response "would reflect bad on my reputation" come true. If none of the adults who are supposed to be Professional and role models are never held accountable for their actions, some of the students do the samething.After all teachers say kids learn from adults right?
On Stoughton Trailers planning to hire 125 workers
Jmartin-nobody expects this to a union job,but they failed to mention to compete with china you habve to be treated like a chinese worker with no rights,or a "no matter what" or stay here all night with no notice attitude. BTW for everyones information assemblers make $11.00 hr. after 90 days,just like they have since they picked up in 2010,because they dont give raises,pay you for a full holiday on 1st shift,and nothing you do is ever going to be enough!!!!If you dont beleive me ask anybody who works who isnt high up onth food chain or ass kisser
they have to keep hiring people because of their high turn over rate,most of which is their own fault.I WOULD STRONGLY ADVISE EVERYONE NOT TO WORK THERE!!!

On New law imposes jobless benefits wait
how about they (ue)gets a waiting week from me when I pay in unemployment every year and we will call it even,or maybe we should be able to opt out of paying it all together,save that money and use it when you need it instead of waiting for people who dont know what its like to rely on the money they deserve when they need it the most. Maybe if these people running this state created some more jobs like they promise we could save on unemployment.

On Wheel tax survives initial talks
How about we pay all of the politicians and people like eric levitt minimum wage and make the minority of the residents who want to dump money into a skatepark and a new ice rink come up with the money on their own . Then I would not mind this "wheel tax" so much.
On Stoughton Trailers to reopen Evansville plant
maybe they could start paying all of the employees the holiday pay they should get,not just the second shift.
On $10/hr - A living wage?
It is sadly normal now. I divide my unemployment by 40 and it is $9.70 hr. I do not think $10.00 hour is enough,but would have to accept it out of fear of my unemployment running out. With the job market the way it is now it seems like $9.00 hour is becoming normal,something has to be done about sending our jobs away and not making enough to live on or we are going to start living like a third world country!!!!
