Remember those who sacrificed

fourth Monday of May — had simple origins. It was a day set aside to honor those who had offered the ultimate sacrifice to our country, the sacrifice of their lives.
Memorial Day has strayed from that simple premise. People see the three-day holiday weekend as the launching pad into the busyness of summer: camping, fishing, vacations, time on our decks and patios enjoying sunshine, beverage, friends, family and food.
For others, Memorial Day has come to mean honoring all those who have died before us — our parents, grandparents, children, friends.

School Board needs lesson in Economics 101

To the Editor:
The Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board needs a lesson in Economics 101.
Given: Budgets need to be balanced and tax money does not grow on trees.
Opportunity: A teacher retires. School administration says declining enrollment would permit the district to cut expenses by not replacing that teacher. Savings over 10 years would amount to at least $500,000. The savings would help keep the school district’s budget in balance. How should one vote?
