We have official word that Kit McCormick has accepted a position at Garfield High School.
Congrats Garfield and Kit!
And curses upon Randy Taylor and the SVSD!
As if the education in the valley was not in enough trouble, now you have pushed away another great teacher!
It's high time for some NEW leadership at Mount Si!
Our best wishes to Kit in her new adventures. I'm sure she'll run into far more open minds at Garfield than our backwards little community here!
I hope you religous zealots are happy!
If only ignorance was painful!

From the Snoqualmie Valley Record
More than 100 Valley families choose to send their children to public schools outside the Snoqualmie Valley School District.
This fall, Snoqualmie Valley School District board director Kathryn Lerner's family will be among them.
Lerner's daughter, who graduated from Chief Kanim Middle School in June, will enter Mercer Island High School this fall.
Lerner said her family's decision was not an easy one to make, but was based on programming options. Her daughter plans to participate in marching band and study Mandarin Chinese, and neither program is available at Mount Si High School.
Lerner said that while the district needs improvement in budgeting, facility planning and long-range planning, her family's decision was based solely on her daughter's needs.

The SnoValley Star reports that fees will be rising this fall at Mount Si.
July 24, 2008
By Laura Geggel
Mount Si High School plans to increase its student activity fees to keep up with the rising price of fuel. The fees, which are currently $75 per sport, would increase to $100 if the school board approves them before the beginning of the fall sports season.
If approved, there would be a cap on how much each student would have to pay. Students participating in more than one sport would not have to pay more than $150 per year, while families with multiple children playing school sports would not have to pay more than $225 per year.
Waivers for free or reduced fees can be obtained from the school.
Mount Si was one of the last high schools in the area to require an activity fee for extracurricular athletics. Greg Hart, associate principal and athletic director at Mount Si High School, said he and the school board were initially hesitant to implement fees for fear of a drop in athletic participation.

What happened to CoDE?
Well it's been nearly 3 months now since the DoS at MSHS. We've been watching the CoDE web site since then to see what they were doing to end the 'indoctrination' in our schools. What a big surprise, they have done nothing!
Since the DoS they have updated their web site once and that was to remove their comments about how they having nothing to do with Hutch.
Of course it's only a coincidence that Le Ann Shaw was President of CoDE during this assault on our students, who she claimed "Is not affiliated with Ken Hutcherson" and yet;
Todd Shaw, a member of Hutcherson's church, said he'll be at the protest Friday with a sign that reads "Education Not Indoctrination."
It would seem that their interest in 'indoctrination' is limited to the GSA and the DoS they fought so dilligently against. There seems to be nothing new happening over at the Ministry of Vice and Truth.
In fact, some of their 'Communications' have been removed from their site including the threatening letter they sent to the students of the Mt Si GSA. This letter included veiled threats of "unstable people" turning to "extreme acts of violence" including "school shootings". They close the letter with;
"Please choose to not spread anger this year and do not request the Day of Silence during the school day."
If there was any doubt as to the motives of this group, that doubt is gone. They are nothing more than a band of homophobic reprobates trying to push their personal religous agendas down the throats of our children.
CoDE has done NOTHING to help our schools or our students. Their site claims;
"Mount Si High School and the Snoqualmie Valley School District have recently had their reputation damaged and have been in the national news due to the actions of a small number of teachers."
It is NOT the teachers at Mount Si that have tarnished our reputation, it is these religous zealots who have brought national attention and ridicule to the valley as being percieved as a bunch of back woods nutjobs that hate gays!
Well to the rest of the world, rest assured that rational minds outnumber these simple minded reprobates in the valley by a wide margin.
It is fairly obvious that CoDE and it's members are more interested in compelling our secular education system to embrace the homophobia and other medieval superstitions that they cherish in favor of the system of law we currently have.
Equal Justice and Protection under the law! It works, even for the simple minded bigots who are protected by the same!
Please CoDE, keep your religion where it belongs, in your temples and churches.
Hate has no place in our schools, but you are welcome to embrace your hatred in your churches as the Antioch members do.
Updated to clarify the position Le Ann Shaw held at CoDE.

"Pastor Ken Hutcherson is still pursuing action against the teacher at Mt. Si High School in Snoqualmie, Washington, who interrupted his Martin Luther King Day speech to voice his opposition to Hutcherson's Christian views on marriage and sexuality."
Dr. Potratz did not interrupt the assembly to voice his opinion, he simply booed the blowhard when he was introduced. It was Kit McCormick who asked the question, AFTER his "speech". And for booing the guest, he was reprimanded.
"Teacher George Potratz later compared Hutcherson's support for the biblical condemnation of homosexual behavior with advocacy for slavery."
This is a well established falsehood. What Dr. Potratz said, and I was there is;
"Hutcherson has a right to his views...just as someone who believes in reinstating slavery has a right to theirs."
And went on to say;
"just because someone has the right to these ideas, it does not make them acceptable in a public school"
Dr. Potratz NEVER advocated a return to slavery, that was Hutcherson's own deluded interpretation of the comments.
"She said to me, 'Well, if you were the pastor of a black church, that would have much more impact than being the black pastor over there with a white church, and you're the one that has chosen,' basically, 'to live over there with those people,'" Hutcherson details.
Hutcherson was asked who Jenkins was referring to as "those people?" "White people," he answered.
Now Ms. Jenkins has been libeled in the spirit of Hutch's "Christianity".
Jenkins disputes Hutcherson's account of the conversation. "That's not exactly what I said. What I said was that, from the perspective of the Commission on African American Affairs, when there is an issue that's involving a church congregation and maybe a political work that that church may be doing, that it's a little different kind of role and a little different positioning for us to be able to get involved when the congregation of the church is...a black church or a black denomination," she contends.
UPDATED 7/8/2008 From the PI
"It is not what I said, it is what he heard," Jenkins said.
This seems to be a pattern with Hutch, he has a built in BS translator that makes him hear what he wants to hear, which is basically that he is a victim in all of this.
This blow hard reprobate named Ken Hutcherson has to manufacture events to appease the inner turmoil of his dark and sinister mind.
Looking for the face of evil, look no further. Ken Hutcherson is an evil man!
It's time for legal action to put this buffoon in his place!

Help! Help! I'm being repressed!
You heard right. Our favorite nutjob is still at it!
Apparently the NAACP is controlled by Governor Gregoire and the "White Powers" in Washington.
Get this guy into an asylum before he hurts someone!

Put on your knee pads and start praying!
This past Sunday I was preaching on Romans 2:11 which says God is no respecter of persons. I was informed last week that this is not true of Governor Christine Gregoire and the State of Washington. There is extreme favoritism in this state.
I was informed by Rosalund Jenkins, head of the Commission on African American Affairs for the State of Washington, that if I was the black pastor of a black church instead of a black pastor of a white church, I would have more clout to say I was discriminated against at Mt. Si High School at the Martin Luther King Day Assembly.
I was informed that a homosexual is part of the Commission on African American Affairs so I can forget about fighting the issues of racism and homosexuality.
I was informed that even though she is head of the Commission on African American Affairs for the state of Washington she does not work for black people. She works for Governor Chris Gregoire because hers is not an elected position, she is a gubernatorial appointee.
I was informed that if I continue to go down the road of racism and homosexuality, I’m fighting against the white power structure of the State of Washington and I don’t have a chance of winning.
As I was talking to her, it dawned on me that the NAACP must be controlled and owned by the white power structure of the State of Washington as well.
I filed a grievance with the NAACP and now I know why James Bible, President of the local chapter doesn’t return my phone calls. The only member of the NAACP who has any intestinal fortitude is Rev. Phyllis Beaumonte. She has constantly said that they are supposed to investigate any complaint brought by a member, yet the President has put this off week after week after week.
Pray for Rev. Beaumonte. She is trying to get the NAACP to do the right thing.
Continue to pray for me as I stand on Biblical Truth and the Word. I was informed by the head of the Commission on African American Affairs for the State of Washington that Gov. Gregoire has established a special place for homosexuals in her administration and the State of Washington.
This will be an uphill battle but I am willing to fight trusting in God until we attain victory.
"This past Sunday I was preaching on Romans 2:11 which says God is no respecter of persons."
Romans 2:11 For there is no partiality with God.
How does "no respecter of persons" translate from an impartial God?
Does he have any idea what he's preaching or does he just make this crap up as he goes along?

Bomb was just a phone
From the Snoqualmie Valley Star By Laura Geggel
A handmade telephone intended as a friendly gift caused a bomb scare at Mount Si High School June 16.
Mount Si High School evacuated its students to the football stadium at about 11:10 a.m. after the main office opened a suspicious looking package - really an upside down telephone - addressed to a student.
According to Snoqualmie Police Public Information Officer Rebecca Munson, the school’s front office received the package June 13, but the student was absent. On Monday, the main office called the student to the office, where she informed them she was not expecting a package.
They opened the package upside-down and, when they noticed wires, called the police and evacuated the school to the neighboring stadium.
“We had an officer respond and he saw wires, so he called a bomb squad,” Munson said.

Today, Tuesday, June 17, school will resume at the regularly scheduled time. Students will begin their day by reporting to their 4th period class - to retrieve any materials left yesterday - then continue with their previously-planned finals schedule.
On Monday, June 16, Mount Si High School students were evacuated to the stadium around 11:35am as a precaution and remained outside until school was dismissed or a parent picked them up. This was in response to a suspicious looking package that was delivered to the school's office. A police bomb squad confirmed that the package was a very well-built hoax device. The building was re-opened around 4:00 pm Monday.
For those concerned about finals, Principal Randy Taylor confirmed that the incident will be taken into consideration with the administration of their exams today.
If you have any information that could help with the investigation of this crime, please contact the City of Snoqualmie Police department at 425-888-3333
