  • Iwant to know why the Principal,
    supertindent,and the teacher are
    not held accountable when they don't do they job. You need to put some better policies and procedure when it come to suspension.Proviso West was once a
    beautiful school and a good place for people to send their children,but now it like a school
    for the hoodlum and bully .

  • I have a question for Libka. When will he be certified to act a real supt?

  • Question #1: When will Libka have his certification to rightfully send our black and latino children to the prison system?

    Question #2: Will Welch use District 209 money to fund his campaign for state rep., and can the community ask the district for an audit?

  • To; Everybody-Hates-Chris

    Judging you by your outlook on the community, most will realize that your statements are as phony, empty and immature as your name (identity) and backbone.

    You my friend are just a punk, and a spineless one at that!

    If you were half the man that Chris Welch is, you could be somebody. In your current state you don't even qualify to clean his toilet after he downed two cups of chili with double beans on a cold, and rainy day.

    Are you just upset because he wouldn't allow you or your kind to rip off the residents of this great township any more?

    I would ask him what in the heezy does Mcgee do for $75,000? Did her husband just get hired making more than a first year teacher?
    Does'nt Proviso pay an advertising firm (which is ironically the same firm that did Welch's campaign material).
    Should there be some type of nepotism rule or policy in the district? Companies and other school districts have it why not Proviso?
    Also, Libka are you now apart of Welch's Master of Puppet Show? Are you the leading act and will debut your routine at Monday's board meeting?
    Are you, Libka retarded?

    These are just a few questions my organization would ask!

  • On Jeopardy the other night, the final question was How many steps does the guard take during his walk across the tomb of the Unknowns ------?All three missed it ---?/span>?br>?
    ?/span>This is really an awesome sight to watch if you've never had the chance ?Very fascinating.

    ?Tomb of the?Unknown Soldier

    1.?How many steps does the guard take during his walk across the?
    tomb?of the Unknowns and why??
    ?br>??? 21 steps. It alludes to the twenty-one gun salute, which is the?
    highest honor given any military or foreign?dignitary.

    2. How long does he hesitate after his about face to begin his
    return walk and why?
    ?br>??? 21 seconds for the same reason as answer number 1


    3. Why are his gloves wet?
    ?br>??? His gloves are moistened to prevent his losing his grip on the



    4. Does he carry his rifle on the same shoulder all the time
    and if not, why not?
    ??? He carries the rifle on the shoulder away from the tomb.
    After his?march across the path, he executes an about face
    and moves the rifle to the outside shoulder.


    5. How often are the guards changed?
    ???Guards are changed every thirty minutes,
    twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.


    6. What are the physical traits of the guard limited to?
    ???For a person to apply for guard duty at the tomb, he must be
    between 5' 10" and 6' 2" tall and his waist size cannot exceed 30."?Other
    requirements of the Guard: They must commit 2 years of life to guard the
    tomb, live in a barracks under the tomb, and cannot drink any alcohol on
    or off duty for the rest of their lives. They cannot swear in public for the
    rest of their lives and?cannot disgrace the uniform {fighting} or the tomb in
    any way. After two years, the guard is given a wreath pin that is worn on
    their lapel signifying they served as guard of the tomb. There are only
    400 presently worn. The guard must obey these rules for the rest of their
    lives or give up the wreath pin.
    ?br>??? The shoes are specially made with very thick soles to keep the heat
    and cold from their feet. There are metal heel plates that extend to the
    top of the shoe in order to make the loud click as they come to a halt.
    There are no wrinkles, folds or lint on the uniform. Guards dress for duty
    in front of a full-length mirror.
    ?br>??? The first six months of duty a guard cannot talk to anyone, nor
    watch TV.?All off duty time is spent studying the 175 notable people laid
    to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. A guard must memorize who they are
    and where they are interred. Among the notables are: President Taft, Joe
    E. Lewis {the boxer} and Medal of Honor winner Audie Murphy, {the most
    decorated soldier of WWII} of Hollywood fame.
    ?br>??? Every guard spends five hours a day getting his uniforms ready for
    guard duty.

    ??? In 2003 as Hurricane Isabelle was approaching?Washington,?DC, our?
    US Senate/House took 2 days off with anticipation of the storm. On the ABC?
    evening news, it was?reported that because of the dangers from the?
    hurricane, the military?members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of?
    the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment. They?
    respectfully declined the offer, "No way, Sir!"?Soaked to the skin,?
    marching in the pelting?rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding?
    the Tomb was not just an?assignment, it was the highest honor that can be?
    afforded to a serviceperson. The tomb has been patrolled continuously,?
    24/7, since 1930.?

    God Bless and keep them.

     don't usually suggest that many emails be forwarded, but I'd be?
    very proud if this one reached as many as possible. We can be very proud?
    of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
