Regan Reacts to Stewart Open Letter

Under Tony Stewart's “open letter” printed in the Coeur d'Alene Press's online edition, former Coeur d'Alene school trustee Brent Regan offers an “open letter” to Tony Steward (sic) in response:

“During our conversation at the CDA Library I chastised you for falsely and publicly characterizing a person's position without doing the due diligence of first talking to that person. You apologized and assured me it would never happen again and yet here you are doing EXACTLY the same crime. If you are to lead the Task Force on Human Relations then perhaps you should invest in the 'relations' part and actually talk to people before you start squawking like Chicken Little. Your apparent inability to be fair minded makes you unfit to serve as a leader of the Task Force and the Board would be wise to consider your 'retirement' before you do further to damage the credibility of that organization.”


Open Letter To CHS Teachers

Facebook Friend Dave Chamberlain posted the following open letter to the teachers of Coeur d'Alene earlier today: “I hereby intrust you to not only teach my daughter the skills of reading, writing and arithmatic, but to show them through your own experiences the reasons WHY teaching and LEARNING are important for the rest of her life. Help me teach her how to deal with people that are ignorant, and bigoted by presenting both sides of history. Please note that I do not give this honor to you without a caution. I will be checking her online status regularly, and I will be watching her progress. But from my experiences of CHS, I am assured she will get the best of education possible in a state that dismisses your impact.”

Question: What do you expect from your child's teachers? What should your child's teachers expect from you?

Blog: Things Still Looking UP For UI, USU

The best part of this is for The University of Idaho and Utah State who are poised to take over where Boise State and Fresno Left off. The University of Idaho in football after the momentum we had last year and the stability we have finally achieved with our leadership and program directors. After so many years of struggles and trials it is nice to see upward progress being made Utah State is a player in basketball. They are unarguably the top dogs when it comes to hoops and their football program is on the upswing with Gary Anderson at the helm. They could be atop the WAC. If BYU still manages its master plan of independence, with all other sports in the WAC, and the possibility of bringing SDSU with them, it could turn the WAC into a 2 Bid NCAA Tournament overnight in Basketball/Shon, No Cannot Have!.
