Don’t change name of schools
Why would anyone donate money to a church or high school? A personal glorification or a real interest in the community.
Let them call the high school Tomcats, but still keep in mind Blazer High School is the real name. Why don’t they change the name of the gym?
Is there any sentiment in this town? This will certainly affect future donations by deleting Blazer. So much for the grateful citizens of Ashland.

She won’t accept theory as fact
The facts were in, the debate settled. Outside the town of 10,000 people flew in a mustering of 500 storks; exactly nine months later the humans had a population boom of 500 babies. Yep, proof that storks bring babies.
The caution of this old saw from my undergrad statistics class remains today; 2 points on a graph do not a causal effect make. It’s surely no coincidence that the renewed push for anthropogenic global warming regulations and taxes is occurring now that its so-called science is crumbling. Amid scandals of thermometer test sites, polar bear myths, dismantling the fallacious 97 percent scientists figure, double books by the NCDC, admission by the IPCC A5 that the sun has an unexpectedly large effect on climate, and much more, the need for critical thinking has never been greater .
Compare the tiresome lack of tolerance by AGW alarmists to real scientist Albert Einstein, who encouraged others to read his works, question his data and critique his theories. The name-calling and hysteria that demand international criminal trials of fossil fuel companies and prison for skeptics preclude rational discussion. Is that the intent? Some compare me to flat earth deniers because I’m too stupid to accept theory as fact, such as gravity theory, but the halls of science labs are cluttered with discarded scientific theories, some of which were accepted for a time.
The appalling inaccuracy of climate change predictions would shame a palm reader at the county fair. Most AGW data is not peer-reviewed and is inconsistent, extrapolated or based on failed computer models. One could honestly say that AGW is based on Tim Gunn — find a new model and make it work. It never does but there's money to be made saying it will.
