  • - A Very Serious Topic - Wobbling
    - A Very Serious Topic - Strokes
    • Besides being a Wobbler I have also experienced an Ischemic Stroke on the right-hand side of my brain which presented speaking problems and fine motor control problems. The most difficult of the two for me was the fine motor control problem which affected my ability to type and to prevent or write cursive lefthanded. Rather than go into the details. I would like to recommend two specific products which have provided a great deal of assistance to me. Iandn order to overcome the typing limitations I decide to choose Dragon NaturallyNspeaking software by Nuance. Confine their website at:http://www.nuance.com/
    • I am currently using their product to type this addition to my webpages.
    • I hated losing the ability to print and write and my early attempts were very frustrating as they consisted primarily of being asked to copy other examples of printing and handwriting. I found this very frustrating.
    • After more than a few hours of searching on the Internet led me to Peterson Directed Handwriting which is helping me by re-creating the pathways from my brain to my nerves to my muscles into my fingers in other words, I am building new pathways, which helped me learn how to write again:
    • Rand Nelson, a vice president of Peterson Directed Handwriting has produced an excellent short video which can be found at: https://mrpencil.adobeconnect.com/

    - Property issues - taxes and development probelms

    October 05, 2007 School funding has been a concern of mine. In March of 2006 I published and spoke of my concerns. Now, in a letter to the public, the new superintendent describes funding crises and staff changes. There has to be more accountability.

    October 03, 2007 School levy funding! A devisive issue in many communities. The November 2007 election has a levy item on the ballot. It is termed EHJR 4204. I oppose it. A guest editorial from a local newspaper really states the case on why this ballot measure should be defeated.

    June 22, 2007 Some concern has been voiced about the uses the School District Levy (approved in 2005) will be put to. Audits are a way of learning about a school district performance.

    Oakville School District has been audited on a routine basis. Here are html versions of recent audits:

    Here are the original pdf files which should be used to review any formal questions:

  • May 11, 2006 - Standard & Poors recognized some high performing schools. Several spend less per student, have higher WASL scores and median incomes lower than ours, and housing values the same or less than ours. Obtaining a quality education can be done in small districts and the winners demonstrate that!
  • March 26, 2006 How does Oakville School District 2006 Oakville School Levy votecompare to other local schools?
  • March 6, 2006 Oakville School Levy my concerns and evaluation
  • February 2003 NEW! County Board of Equalization one taxpayer's experience with the property tax appeal process. Insulting? You decide.
  • September 2002 Service Station - NO Pemits needed! Anderson Road, September 2002 - a hearing at Grays Harbor County complete with aerial photos and text
  • July 2002 Property Taxes, revisted 2002 the saga continues. . .
