We watched customer service videos every now and then which always shot scenes in two parts: the wrong way to handle a customer ser- vice matter, and the right way to handle a customer service matter.

The second phase was a competi- tion between the classes for the most labels collected. The competition was started on January 15 and ended March 15. Overall winners were Mrs. Stewart's fifth grade class for the upper grade levels and Mrs. Peterson's kindergarten for the lower grade levels. Overall our school col- lected 4798 labels and bonus labels totaling 1000 for special projects we conducted. Glenville Elementary would like to recognize all the parents, students and teachers for promoting this pro- gram and collecting the labels, the area businesses who assisted in col- lecting labels. A special thank you to the Glenville Junior Women's Club for cutting, counting and trimming " the labels, and to Rolanda Gumm and Debbie Yeager for helping also.

Them are gen- erations of people being born every day who can be counted on to spend decades shouldering the burden of whatever you've screwed up in less than four years. Think about it: the men and women responsible for faulty intelligence gathering, national security failures and bald-faced lies about the cost of Medicare budget funding are strongly supported by the President, while people who dare expose the truth in the aforementioned matters are fired, personally attacked and called "out of the loop" by the Bush administration. Are these examples of good leader- ship? Are these examples supposed to tell us anything more than Wrong is Right and Right is Wrong? We often tell children in our coun- try that they can do whatever they set their minds to. One of the most ridicu- lous examples we like to offer is that any Johnny or Sally, regardless of race, religion or socioeconomic sta- tus, can one day be the President of the United States. The assumption, of course, is that most children want to grow up to be President. If this is true, and if they're watching the examples set by the cur- rent Commander in Chief, let's hope they change their career goals. A vro DETAILING "Detailin 3 At Its Fi '" - n~ST Inc.
