Kudos to Batavia Public School District 101 for saving jobs and programs for kids in spite of funding problems.

Thanks to the Kane County Chronicle for reporting this good news!

According to the article, “Without intervention, the impact of the financial crisis would have resulted in a loss of 50 to 60 teachers,” Batavia School Superintendent Jack Barshinger said.

It’s unfortunate my presentation “The Right Solution – Kids First” has been unfairly judged by those opposed to saving jobs and saving programs for kids.

During these trying times, may Batavia be an inspiration!

Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible. —Anonymous

You are fantastic, Jan.

Please pray for our son, Rich, Jr. He needs a live kidney donor. He has been dealing with kidney disease since 1997. After going on dialysis, he had to wait nearly 5 years for a transplant. Family and friends were tested, but none were suitable. In 2005 he had the transplant and did well for one year. He has married and now has a 9 month old son. He has been in rejection and his health continues to decline. On 3/26/10, the cardiologist was emphatic about the need for a live donor. Currently the average waiting time is around 6 years. Dialysis keeps you alive but not healthy. More people die waiting for a transplant than those who actually have one. Our concern is, if he has to wait that long he may not be healthy enough to have a transplant.

God bless you.

Rich and Nora Waliczek

Congratulations for saving the jobs on that school. Recession did a big effect on most workers and even professionals. Hopefully, it will not happen again and I see the economy today is going back to normal which is great news.
