This page's contents go back to April 28, 1999. As you can tell there seem to be big gaps between additions. I put something new in at least every other day although many items are simply news stories. Look at Not Eudora to see my latest columns ( I write one at least every other week)

Monday, 5-6-2002  Reunion This is the first time I've ever put a particular diary entry in "What's New" but I rather like this one. Its not great writing but I've got it linked to a large number of related pages that together give some sense of the Kansas, milieu I grew up in.

George Robb Exhibit at the Kansas State Historical Museum

An embarrassingly nice profile of Harry by Jeff Potts, writing for the ridiculously positive Twin Ports People in 1994, before Harry was elected to public office. 

Sculpting Bill Clinton this isn't really new. I wrote it in 2000 when I was challenging for the State Senate but I've just added it to Diogenes

To Whom it May Concern A few weeks before I was sworn in as a school board member in 1995, Frank Wanner told several hundred teachers at a meeting that: "Harry Welty will be no friend of teachers."

http://www.edweek.org/ew/ewstory.cfm?slug=23parc3.h19 This is an informative article I just read at the Education News site which you can find on my Education News Page. From an annual report called "Reality Check 2000" it talks about the state of educational standards. 

A cartoon I sent Frank Wanner Over a year ago I let Frank know what I thought the contract he wanted would do to our (and his) junior teachers. Now that we face 4.6 million in cuts next year my prediction is closer than ever to coming to pass - updated 1-31.

Harry Welty's Dropout Study In 1991 while I was running for the School Board for the 2nd time I discovered that, contrary to the Administration's claims, Duluth had a 22% or 30% dropout rate. What I had uncovered was massive fraud in reporting student enrollment. Although my report did not make this claim I took it to the press where it got a big yawn. I have appended it to the first Chapter of Who Won - updated 1-17-2000

The latest DFT Column "Dissen the Board" November 30, 1999

"We have lost some trust...It will be very difficult in the future to envision a cooperative relationship with the school district...One of our retirees put it very well to me today when he said: 'I guess once again it just proves that the district thinks about money alot more than the people who work for them...'
