A local group says NO on Proposition 3 to amend the constitution on standardized tests for teacher evaluations…

October 31, 2014 Local No Comments

Proposition 3 is getting a lot of media attention as groups in opposition sing from the mountain tops of its unfair nature to teachers. In a nutshell it would remove local power on education and move it to the state and federal legislature. At least 51% of evaluations for tenure or raises would be tied to standardized test scores – costing each school district nearly 1.3 million dollars. Teachers would be asked to signed contracts for three years or less and would not be allowed to organize. The local group No On 3 is taking a stand. Chairman David Larson tells KZIM KSIM they contacted 151 of the 152 superintendents in our area and got some pretty clear results…

Larson cited another study that showed 72% of superintendents statewide have said no to this amendment passing. Local chambers of commerce and school boards are also in opposition. Proposition 3 will be on the November 4th ballot.

An Arkansas man pleaded guilty this week to attacking a colleague with a box cutter outside a Cape Girardeau hotel. 40-year old Robert L. Brewer of Jonesboro, Arkansas, originally had been charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action in connection with the Aug. 7 attack. According to a probable-cause statement officers arrived at Drury Lodge to find the victim holding a blood-soaked towel to the left side of his face and neck. The victim had one-half to one-inch-deep lacerations to his neck; face; right shoulder; and left thigh. The victim and Brewer got into an argument and Brewer slashed the victim with a folding box cutter. Brewer waived his Miranda rights and eventually admitted to cutting the victim, saying he did so in self-defense after the victim put him in a choke hold. Brewer pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree assault. Prosecutors dropped the armed criminal action charge.
Sentencing is set for Dec. 8.

October 31, 2014 Genius Award No Comments

TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

Ramon Herrera, 33, a New Mexico man who was arrested for burglary after using a toilet during a robbery and leaving DNA in it.
Police were investigating a home burglary that netted $250,000 in jewelry and they initially had no leads to go on.
When they entered the bathroom they noticed urine in the toilet and sent it to the lab.
Tests came back to a DNA sample they had on file for Herrera, who was arrested a day later.

AND THEN THERE’S …..

An Aurora, Colorado man who ended up running over himself while fumbling with a cigarette.
The unidentified man was backing the vehicle out of his driveway while lighting a cigarette.
The man thought he dropped his cigarette down the front of his jacket, so he opened the driver’s door and jumped out.
However, vehicle continued to move backwards, knocking him over, and the front tire rolled over his head.
The man was rushed to a local hospital, where police said he was in a critical condition but likely to survive.

OR HOW ABOUT …..

Yvette Nicholas, a New Jersey teacher who had her license suspended for mocking a student’s name online.
Officials did not disclose the name, but they did supply several Facebook posts from Nicholas.
Nichols admitted posting comments such as, “I want to ask the parents if I can change it,” and, “I still can’t get over the student’s name!”
She added, “How do you think I feel when I have to address him???? I literally can’t stop laughing! I have to go all year with this!”
Nicholas eventually agreed that ridiculing the student’s name was immature and she’s resigned from her job.
