I couldn't make a vigil tonight either, but I was with everyone at one tonight in spirit. In solidarity with the Cindy, The Gold Star Families, Military Families Speak Out and the majority of America that wants to stop the war.

Light the candle call for peace and let's keep it burning.

Peace, back by popular demand!
Sonia

Wow, even in Plano. I'm impressed!

6. Yay for Plano....
Events like this make me wish I didn't work the night shift :(
I'm in Plano and wanted to go when I heard there was one happening here but I start work at 7 pm.

On a different note but still Plano-related....PISD got it's hands slapped for not keeping up with the increase in minority students---40% of enrolled students are minorities. DMN has a good article w/ stats from each Plano campus.

Diversity panel faults Plano schools' staffing: While some gains are being made, campuses lag on hiring goals

Several Plano school campuses aren't doing enough to make their staffs representative of the district's changing demographics, members of a community and district diversity committee have charged in their annual report to the school board.

<snip>

Gifted and Talented program leaders have been following committee recommendations to seek more information about why black, Hispanic and low socioeconomic students are underrepresented in the district's Gifted and Talented Programs and the Distinguished Honors Graduation Program. Program staff members are seeking a grant to fund a position to tackle the issue.

The Multi-Ethnic Committee praised the Multilingual Department for gains but was discouraged that not all schools are participating in a successful pre-kindergarten through third-grade dual-language program.

The group has concerns that black and Hispanic students are overrepresented in the district's special education population. High test scores among some of these students indicate to the group that students might be wrongly classified.

And WHY in the hell are we now having caged Ultimate Fighting at the Plano Centre???
