PLN 10

In the article “Board votes to close two elementary schools” it talks about closing down Louis Ames Elementary School, and Walt Whitman Elementary School. This matters to me because I have two cousins who go to Louis Ames. Although the district needs to do this for financial reasons, I think it will take a toll on the parents of students who go to these two schools. I think a good solution to these closures is talking it out with the school board and the parents to agree on something that will be convenient and money saving.


In my article “Obama: Economy the greatest challenge” it talks about how President-Elect Barack Obama is going to change this nations economic crisis. This is important to me and others around me because right now our country is in a recession, and not only is it affecting the adults, but it’s affecting the youth of today who are going to have to clean up after these irresponsible bankers and politicians. I think to fix this we need to stop giving people money who don’t need it, and we need to restrict the CEO’s of the banks from going on lavish retreats while the rest of the country sits and watches our countries fall into a depression.

In the article “Copper opens tomorrow, a week early” what matters is the resorts early opening which in the long run gives people seven extra days of fun in the snow. This relates to me because I am an avid skier/snowboarder and last season I went up every weekend to copper and winter park. I think this will be good for the resort because it will bring them more annual revenue and the outcome of this early opening will be more satisfaction to the world’s skiers and snowboarders and more money for Copper.

In the Denver post articles I picked “Duck hunters getting no relief” In this article what matters is figuring out what to do during hunting season because masses of water-fowl are still in Canada. This is an important subject to me because I am an avid hunter of not only water-fowl, but big game too. I am extremely worried that this upcoming hunting season that started on the 1st of November will be rather dull. I think we need to take action and somehow find a way to get the masses of water-fowl to migrate south. I think that one of the causes of this hunting nightmare is global warming; I think that when people think about global warming they think about fuel efficient cars, and recycling. However, what they do not realize is that global warming is taking a huge toll on the water-fowl hunters of the Midwest, Northern Prairies, and Eastern Plains. Although things are bad in most of the “hunting hotspots” in south eastern Colorado in the Arkansas River Valley many birds are showing up. This is good for me because two weekends from now I am going hunting in that area of Colorado, and hope to get some sort of bird.
