Our efficient Ohio Secretary of State Jon Justen has told us that in Ohio it is easy to vote and hard to cheat; vote from home, vote early or vote on election day. Just call the Ottawa County Board of Elections at 419-898-3071 for instruction.

Now we have no excuse for not voting and, consequently, the election of professional politicians, double dippers or family members without qualifications. Let’s keep it honest, let’s stop listening to shallow politics from desperate people.

Wake up, folks! Let’s think for ourselves! Let’s show that we do care!

Learning + fun = IMATHIMATION at ICS

At Immaculate Conception School, math is amazing when we use our “IMATHIMATION”.   This was the title of an assembly program, brought to the school through Mobile Ed. Productions.  Imathimation encourages kids to think outside the box and to use their “imathimation” to envision all the ways in which math affects their lives every day. Playing on ordinary situations to create extraordinary excitement, the students were shown how cooking, sports, shopping, music and a variety other everyday tasks all revolve around the importance of math.  

Students learned about finance and savings and saw how math can magically multiply their savings. They also baked a gigantic three tiered cake using “mathmagical” measurements. Student volunteers raced to create a bridge using only mathematical principles. This math oriented assembly made it easy for students to see math as an exciting part of everyday life.
