The new acting head of the Internal Revenue Service is telling Congress that American taxpayers no longer trust the agency amid a growing number of scandals — from targeting conservative political groups to lavish spending on employee conferences.

The most expensive ticket to "The Book of Mormon" on Broadway: $477. The face value of a great seat for this year's Super Bowl: $1,250. Guaranteed seats to watch the U.S. Supreme Court hear this week's gay marriage cases: about $6,000.

It seems to me that the complaints by a few citizens against the Jamestown Public School District for allowing an educational Worldview Weekend Seminar to be held in a school facility are immature and unjustified.
People with a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and a loving desire to serve our creator would not object to a Christian religious meeting held in any public facility. But, if I understand everything correctly, no student could attend without a permission note from the parents, so I think the school policy is fair and just to protect non-Christian parents from exposing their son or daughter to a philosophy that they think is not good for them to hear.

The Jamestown Public School District doesn’t release the names of students on its honor roll. We think the district should reconsider publishing the list.
District administrators say the lists are never totally accurate, and because some grades are turned in late, the honor rolls aren’t released until three weeks after students receive their grades. They argue some of the positive enforcement expected in releasing the grades is lost in that time period.
