  • Focus Hollywood: Paul Walker

    in Movies

    Some actors have the ability to bring you into the characters they portray on the screen; Paul Walker had that type of presence. His films may not have lived up to Hollywood's "litmus test" for best picture, but that didn't take away the fact that no matter what film he was starring in, it was better because he was in it. Paul Walker's death was untimely, and he is truly missed by family, friends and fans alike. The "Movie Maven", Ms. Karen D and I (Greg Morgan the "Reel Movie Guy") will be discussing two of Paul Walker's Movies; "Running Scared" and "Takers" on this weeks episode of "A Reel Point Of View".

    Wisconsin Principals to Scott Walker, Give us "voice."

    in Education

    Last week Valerie Strauss featured a letter from over 30 principals from Southern Wisconsin to governor Scott Walker.  In the letter the principals put forth the argument that funding of public schools in WI must be restored and that if the governor truly believed in "small government" he would return control of public schools back to locally elected school boards.


    In this episode of BustED Pencils we will be talking to Jim Pliner—one (or more?) of the principals who signed and collaborated on the writing of the Wisconsin Principals' Letter to Governor Scott Walker.


    Big Question:  Is this the beginning of a new advocacy movement of principals  in Wisconsin similar to that of the New York Principals?


    The show starts at 5:00 pm Central and will be hosted live from Michelangelo's Coffe House in Madison, WI.  If you're in the area please stop in to participate and/or just have a great cup of coffee and an amazing baked good.

    in Religion

    REVELATION 12:10-11


    And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
