The agreement, which was ratified recently by the school board, provides for a 1 percent salary increase for 2010-11 and a 0.5 percent increase in 2011-12.

    Twinkie: Wouldn't it be interesting to know how many school districts there are in Michigan? Your idea of combining services is a good one, and having only one superintendent of schools per county is too. The only reason you do not know how many districts there are is because such information would probably stagger your imagination as to how much tax money is being used to fuel all of them with all the high paying executives that actually do pretty much of nothing. Hope you stay on your ideas of combining services, you need to get involved and "make it happen". Good luck. From an Old Geezer.

    these cities and townships need to take a look at coming together and share services. when you have a small city surrounded by a twp, the duplicity is numbing. small town police depts, when the county can provide the same and better service for less, building, ordinances, planning and so on. dont get me started on how many school districts mi has.

AUTHOR VISITS EMERSON

Top Story

Johnathan Rand, author of “Michigan Chillers,” “American Chillers” and “Freddie Fernortner” spoke to 550 students Friday during a visit to Owosso’s Emerson Elementary. He told students they could visit anywhere just by opening the “door” to a book. The author also said they could also write their own book by picking up a “magic wand” (pencil) and putting the wand to paper. Angela Wertz, third-grade teacher at Emerson, spent the last the months spear-heading fundraisers to bring Rand to Owosso. With roller skating parties, cookie sales and raffles, Wertz was able to pull it off.
