“I think it gives them a sense of responsibility, a sense of belonging and helps them feel involved in the process of building the community.”

“I think it’s important for them to understand the community around them. If they have a strong sense of community, they know that there are people out there they can depend on.”

“Unless they learn to change things themselves, nothing they want to change in their community will ever get done.”

It isn't. Sharing is a bunch of bull, too. And helping others. And what's all this crap I've been hearing about tolerance?

Is it important? Seems like presupposition of a question. Let's talk about IF it's important first, and them tomorrow we can talk about why.

Gootsie: I think those are short-band wave antennas.

I think this says an awful lot about the Journal World and their priorities. The big story (and controversy) is about moving the Post Office to the Riverfront Plaza and they're asking questions like this. It would appear that they are afraid to ask the questions that are just begging to be asked, especially when they have a stake in the outcome. One thing to remember about the news in this town-you're not necessarily going to get the truth, only the truth as they see fit. I don't think anybody in their right mind would want to have a Post Office in a place that is so inaccessible other than somebody who is trying to get rid of such a property. Conflict of interest? I think so.

Because if kids have parents like the Taub's, they are going to need to get their support from the community.
