Ogden Schools Now Considering 11 Scenarios for Closing, Rebuilding Elementaries

Hello Weber County Forum readers. For those of you who might have thought WCF had "given up the ghost" over the past couple of weeks.. well you'd be wrong. We just took a slight breather..

Here's the latest from the Standard-Examiner, Peeps:
Although it's a mite weird to understand this BS, please remember folks, i.e,. especially concerning those who might be righteously  temped to 'toss off' a few Ogden School board 'crackpots.,for instance. We'll be soon be enmeshed in the 2018 Ogden School Board Elections this year, wherein Ogden voters will have certain choices, regarding the the proper make-up of the Ogden School board.

Keep your eyes focused on Weber County Forum. Peeps.

We'll be following the Ogden School Board race like NO OTHER race.

Weber County Forum Sunday Sermon: No Job, No Relationship is Worth Sacrificing Your Reputation and Credibility

"A single honest man among a pack of scoundrels"

Great stuff coming out of the Washington Post, which will serve as the philosophical foundation for this morning's Reverend Rudizink Sunday Sermon. Here's the "money quote":

"[Mark Corallo] should be an example to others in government service, really in any line of work. No job, no relationship is worth sacrificing your reputation and credibility. Shade the truth here, lie there. Soon you’ll have lost your soul. C.S. Lewis wrote about the phenomenon, the urge to stay in the “Inner Ring” that drives even good people to do bad things"

Here's the full underlying WaPo Sunday morning Op-ed, peeps:
"Corallo resisted that urge, did the right thing and quit. For that he may be remembered as a single honest man among a pack of scoundrels. For that we can say, well done, Mr. Corallo."

Write this down so you don't forget it, Weber County Forum Peeps!

Weber County Forum 2017 Christmas Eve Special

 Do you say “Yes!” or “Bah! Humbug!”

Scrooge- Christmas 2017
Pay attention, peeps. We have an important Christmas Eve message which we'll deliver by hook or crook.  Read up, Happy Christmas Holiday celebrants!
"One of Dickens’s real insights into Scrooge, and by extension us, is that any benefit we derive from pettiness is terribly short lived. By being so small toward others, we diminish ourselves in numerous ways. It crimps our personalities and our vision. Scrooge is proud and miserable and terribly shortsighted. He has his money and his pride and a razor tongue—and that’s about it. With the exception of his nephew, most of the living have given up on seeing him as anything other than something like a ravenous loan shark."

Yep! in closing we'll just reiterate this:

"Scrooge’s story may be extreme, but his experience is not alien to us. That’s one reason why Dickens’s story was such a hit. As this time of year, perhaps encouraged along by one of the many adaptations of A Christmas Carol, many of us take some to reflect on how we have behaved. We make a sort of moral inventory: What did we do right? What did we miss? What can we do better?"

"Let me suggest that pettiness ought to be on that list of vices that we consign to the Ghost of Christmas Past. Do you say “Yes!” or “Bah! Humbug!” to that?"
