SD City Council Votes Down Recommended Salary Increase

1. As a lawyer, I don't know any graduates who started on $130 K per year.
2. Husband is a pilot who has not had a pay raise since 2000. Sept 11 resulted in immediate loss of 30% of pay, plus erosion of benefits and loss of all pension, and no cost of living adjustment. With 30 yrs of experience, plus weekends and nights away, and not one vacation during school vacation, his pay is subject to the economy. Just because things have improved with the industry does not mean pay increase. Now - explain again why you think counsellors should get paid $80 thousand more than my spouse? If their interest is in money they should go to the private sector. If it is in public service, then they already have that.

The Battle Over Single-Use Grocery Bags

In parts of Sydney, there must be a charge for plastic bags. It has been very successful. It is just expected that people take their own bags or use those in the recycling receptacle. It's easy!

The State Of Music Education In Schools

My son has had weekly music lessons for years. His teachers have not been qualified school teachers. Wouldn't "any" music instruction be better than none? There are so many musicians who would make great adjunct part-time music teachers at the schools. Further, there are plenty of non-teachers who can instruct math, etc better than many formally trained teachers, so to refuse such talent simply because they aren't part of the Union of School Teachers is not using all the wonderful resources available
