Thank God that the Orland Fire Department has the courage to tell it like it is, and not worryRead More about the "it doesn't happen here" attitude that is rampant in our community. Please notice that the 135 Superintendent never said they did not turn the Fire Department away, she deflects the question and says they embrace the D.A.R.E. program. If any of you have children who have gone through this very outdated program, ask them, THEY think it is laughable. It is like a Drug Abuse Program written by Disney... What is sad is how the majority of the officials at the meeting in this video have not spoken up yet, or have flip-flopped on the issue, shame on them. Anyone familiar with our City and School Districts KNOW the attitudes that are portrayed by our leaders. Just ask any Eagle Scout that wanted to advance any program to discuss teen and pre-teen suicide prevention, they also get the same doors slammed in their faces....

Was the police department asked to be a part of the meeting?

No shock here that the Mayor is upset. He and other Trustees seem to enjoy keeping their headsRead More stuck in the sand when it comes to any serious issues that might put and negative flare on Orland. They seem to rather everyone not talk about it and pretend it doesn't exist then really do anything proactive to do something to stop it. I know the Police department has held village meetings, so I applaud both the OPPO & OPFD for all their efforts. Regardless of it being a problem in elementary schools yet or not, kids should be made aware of the dangers at any age. We teach them about sex ed in gradeschool yo help prevent STD and unwanted pregnancy. ...why wait until it make be too late to teach them of the danger of illegal drugs. They should at least start educating kids in six grade and above. And if the OPFD is willing to do it for free...bonus! No extra costs to Village or Schools while helping prevent another overdose.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.

OFPD Battalion Chief Raymond Kay, Lieutenant Mark Duke and District 135 nurse Donna Rehm assist parents in the hands-only CPR exercise.

I have worked with Chief Kay and Lt. Duke for quite some time implementing different SCA/CPRRead More programs. These are two stand up guys. It brought tears to my eyes to see how far this program has come. Something I started back in 2008 with a couple of DO Administrators. Thank you Lynn Zeder for keeping this going! It's about education, and helping someone in distress. Plain and simple!
