|I think the grocery store is a 'false choice' I believe the science knowing benefit will come from the attorney general storefront in the pacific plaza parking garage building.|

| Re: RR Anderson: How do we make education interesting to the group of Mason teenagers that hang out in puget park every day smoking pot?
as a youth who grew up in that area and hung out at puget park smoking pot, i can say that fun outdoors stuff like sitting in the park smoking out would have helped us be more interested in education

|RE: Tacoma Daily Index
Good point, Why not use Darryl to help boost morale at say Lincoln High-school ?
Darryl has his feathers full with the child soldiers down at JBLM. And it was explained to me on Fac3Book that Lincoln has the martyred Abraham Lincoln as her Mascot.

|some peppy words from my facebook world...
There are many aspects of the digital billboard debate that I find disturbing. I will address just a few here.
I am a life time resident of Tacoma, my family is based here and my first grandchild was just born here in Tacoma. I and my family have a stake in Tacoma, Clear Channel does not. I care about what Tacoma looks like now and what it will look like in the future.
Clear Channel shows nothing but contempt for the laws, citizens, political process, public face and legacy of Tacoma.
I teach English and public speaking at the college level. I am also a columnist for The News Tribune. I see stunned outrage at every level when this issue comes up in conversation.
My students marvel at the ineffectiveness of our city government. These billboards are the ultimate insult to who we are as a community. If these billboards are erected, they will be a living monument to the cowardice of those who should be making decisions on behalf of our city. You can bet that they will also be targets of hackers and vandals.
In summary, these digital billboards say nothing good about Tacoma, but their presence will be a continuing reminder of missed opportunities and the worst aspect of compromise.

|Erecting a 24/7 commercial spam machine/TV (digital billboards) on a stick across from Jason Lee Middle school and around Tacoma is not going to help education of children in Tacoma.|
Yet we keep hearing: "If only the children were exposed to more commercials and commercialism!"
by NineInchNachos on 5/31/2011 @ 3:56pm
|I would like to complain about the clear channel gangsters that operate the billboard spam empire in Tacoma. Maybe all this spam has an effect on our young people? Kids learn to tune out and fast forward through the commercials, well what happens when our city is made into one big commercial?

|Unless we can convince more people to move to Tacoma and place their kids in the school district, I'm not sure there's anything we can do to prevent at least temporary school closures. Enrollment is falling and projected to fall further before it rises again, and state funding (which is where the majority of school funding comes from, not the city) is dependent upon enrollment. Keeping all of the buildings open would mean cutting programs.

I think the problem is too much self control. When will paganism rise again? Does Tacoma need a ritualistic fertile Summer solstice celebration or what?
