It's sad to read such a great letter to the editor honoring three people who did great things for the school and community and then scroll down to read snarky and disrespectful comments from internet commenters. 6 months ago
This is an awful idea and it is going to make our area look terrible. 10 months ago

So your ok with someone getting a state honor who (among other things):
a. said Michael J. Fox was faking Parkinson's disease to further stem cell research
b. referred to Obama in a song parody titled "Barack the Magic Negro"
c. referred to a women testifying before Congress over health care issues as a "sl**" and "prostitute"
d. illegally purchased oxycodone and hydrocodone to satisfy his painkiller addiction

What was the point of this letter? It does not make any sense.

Mr. Dewitt - I would consider staying silent a little longer. You are trying to make a case that there is one power broker, working on both sides of the political spectrum (Republican and Democrat), who is calling all of the shots to take down Sen. Nieves. Do you really think that is a possibility?
A few points:
First, the "teachers" really are teachers. They all work or have worked in local schools. You can fact check this if you would like.
Second, Sen. Nieves brought his family into this. Not the constituents who visited him at his office. They were merely asking why he felt the need to attend a specific conference.
Third, the guest editorial was actually a reprint that was posted on the stltoday.com website and in the St. Louis Post Dispatch newspaper. Plenty of people saw the editorial.
Fourth, Missourian subscription rates are probably doing great. Controversy always moves papers. Sen. Nieves is the gift that keeps on giving!Jun 16, 2011

Not sure real justice is best served by a man who was charged with shooting a police officer. Just sayin...May 12, 2011
If No Child Left Behind and it's accompanying standards, regulations, and assessments are such a great measuring stick to gauge the success of public schools, why don't the private schools go by those guidelines as well? Probably because they would be failing at about the same rate...

stc-citizen: I'll ask again. How are the public schools failing? You put it out there. Now back up your statement.Apr 13, 2011
