Opening Arguments


Unclear on the concept:

PORTAGE -- Volunteering and wind energy could both be in the future for Portage Township Schools.

School Board members talked at their Wednesday discussion meeting about the possibility of requiring high school students to volunteer to graduate.

Member Tom Pappas supported the idea, saying the program would help students learn civic responsibilities.

That's the way they do things in the military, as I recall: "I need three volunteers -- you, you and you." I was very civic-minded in those days, if you know what I mean.

Remember this one? "All right, everyone who still has both parents alive take one step forward. Not so fast, Jones!"
