    Shooter Drill at Florida School Terrorizes Students!

    in Politics

    Students at Jewett Middle Academy in Winter Haven, Florida, were terrified last week when police officers burst into classrooms with guns drawn.


    Was there a shooter at the school?  No.  The police department and school district initiated an 'active shooter' training drill with zero advance notice to teachers or parents.


    Parents received text messages from frightened children as the principal ordered the school in "lock-down." 


    Is this really the best way way to improve school safety?  Linc says no way.

    #136 Dr. Kathy Masarie - Parent / Family Coach

    in Family

    Parenting expert Dr. Kathy Masarie is generous in heart and spirit. Her caring commitment to the well-being of families touches all facets of her life. In her pediatric practice in the late 1980s and 1990s, Dr. Kathy spent extra time getting to know each family.


    From many professional experiences, she knew how lonely parents can feel in today’s culture. She saw parents, especially parents of teens, struggling in isolation with family-centered problems such as pregnancy, depression, risky drinking and drug use.


    In 1996, she founded the non-profit organization Full Esteem Ahead and then Family Empowerment Network to “support parents to support kids and one another.” Through FEN and with colleague Ruthie Matinko-Wald, she offers parenting talks and classes as well as support materials in the way of parenting books and videos that can be used as curriculum for self-led discussion groups.


    Since their publication, Raising Our Daughters, Raising Our Sons, and Face to Face: Cultivating Kids’ Social Lives in the Digital World Parenting Guides have provided parents, school professionals and other caring adults with powerful vehicles for learning, self-discovery, networking and connecting with kids and other adults.


    Today, Kathy continues to spread the word about the power of parent networking through presentations, seminars and classes. She is also available for one-on-one parent, individual or family coaching.

    PTRN Pagan Variety Show with Witch School International President, Alan Salmi

    in Spirituality

    Dear Witch School Students, Members and Staff,


    I am writing to you as the new President of Witch School, International. Ed Hubbard has handed me the reins to run the school and its various divisions, such as Magick TV, the Facebook Pages, yahoo groups, our Ning social site and Pagans Tonight internet radio shows. Of course, I can’t do this without the help of our excellent staff.


    In the past few days, I’ve been contacting our staff members to find out how they keep all these projects running and, I have to say, I’ve been impressed! Coordinating our social media sites along with our school also involves the help of volunteers who mentor students, answer questions and help to keep the excitement of our family of projects alive.


    Two things that I’ve been asked to do, especially in the coming year are to bring a fresh vision to the school with new ideas and ways for students to be involved and to shift all of Witchschool International into a non-profit religious education organization. We hope to increase the ways that we can serve the Pagan and magickal communities while keeping our historical important role of support for the Correlian Tradition of Wicca.


    Let me introduce myself and answer questions, so feel free to call in! Keep in mind, I’m still “getting my feet wet” so I may not know all the answers, but I’m interested in your questions. Questions and suggestions can be sent to me via the ning social site or alan@witchschool.com.
