Kenneth Mayo hit too staff comments of la i Opie Corporal punishment thursday s topic social drinking Jim Winter i 4oy it Sandra Hancock persuasion and reasoning apparently Are a part of the new thinking As a part of the establishing of discipline in the Public schools. I do not go along with this theory first of All a child must learn a measure of discipline in the Home. The teacher must Alten further and instill discipline in the Sci tools. A break Down of discipline must to met with firm action. Corporal punishment. I think teachers have a right to spank Chi Len of they Arentt doing what they were told to do but spanking and hitting Are two different things. Juanita Lydon Corporal punishment should by used in schools As Well As in the Homes to the extent of showing a child the meaning of right and wrong. It should not go beyond Liat extent though. Or the child could be Hurt and after All it is for his Well being. Karen Nix persuade a child with your Backland and you control Lam is Long As he fears punishment. Persuade the child through his own mind and not Only have you won his Trust but you have influenced him forever. Randy Kaisner Corporal punishment is Good if used As a Means of punishment for some mis doing but if it is used Only As a Means of making a child learn then it will do much More harm than Good. Julia Griffin front Page by Hon Taylor rabbits grab District win Ron Taylor this is definitely a Touchy problem in our school systems today. Most modern Day parents do not want their children spanked but they expect teachers to have disciplinary control Over their children. This Type of punishment depends on individual situations but a teachers right to reach the mid from the Bottom Side should not be taken away.

Although no proof of others being guilty of marijuana Possession has been uncovered Law enforcement officers Are sure some do exist. This is really nothing new. Pill popping and grass smoking has been going on in Bowie for several years. The sad part of this problem is Many of our local teenagers know who is partaking in tills dangerous fad and will not Tell authorities. I have even heard Liat Many parents also know those who smoke the grass and maybe the one who is Selling in by Wie and they too will not Tell. Personally i feel those who do know and Are keeping quiet Are just As guilty As the ones who have chosen to make grass smoking a habit. Maybe people today Lave a different set of values than i do and i definitely done to consider myself an old Quot fogies. You hear arguments for and against the legalizing of marijuana. Some say it will soon be legalized As is the Sale of Beer or whiskey. They say smoking marijuana is not harmful nor is it habit forming. It will net Lead to Larder drugs such As 1sd so they say but which of us parents wants to take a Chance with our children a future by believing these unproven statements.
