    Autoworkers Union Keeps $6 Million Golf Course for Members at $33 Million Lakeside Retreat
    Friday , December 26, 2008

    The United Auto Workers may be out of the hole now that President Bush has approved a $17 billion bailout of the U.S. auto industry, but the union isn't out of the bunker just yet.

    Even as the industry struggles with massive losses, the UAW brass continue to own and operate a $33 million lakeside retreat in Michigan, complete with a $6.4 million designer golf course. And it's costing them millions each year.

I dont believe the american people voted Bush into office twice on the USD protection issue.

    some of the slide info is wrong so far. With the highest debts and more pending bailouts, why is the USD is holding up so well. Have u check the euro lately? Have u check the Iran Rial lately ?? The slide also said watch more opec countries start demanding euro. I'm not feeling this urge lately. In case u forgot, saudi is opec. What saudi says goes and right now, saudi is still on the US side. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Chavez can sell oil in bourse if they want but they are just peeing into the wind Opec is more concern about the oil price now than anything. I talk too much

    Detroit School Lacks Toilet Paper, Light Bulbs
    Donations Accepted Beginning Jan. 12

    POSTED: Wednesday, January 7, 2009
    UPDATED: 10:21 am EST January 8, 2009

    DETROIT -- A Detroit elementary school is asking for donations of toilet paper and light bulbs to continue functioning.

    The principal of the Academy of Americas sent a letter to staff, parents and partners asking for donations of items "that are of the utmost importance for proper school functioning and most importantly for student health and safety."

    In the letter, Principal Naomi Khalil cited budget constraints within the district as the reason that the school could no longer stock the items.

    The district is grappling with a more than $400 million budget deficit and is on the verge of being assigned an emergency financial manager by the state.

    The letter asks for toilet paper, paper towel rolls, trash bags and 60-, 100- or 150-watt light bulbs.

    Chicago Public Schools' cappuccino bill: $67,000
    'A WASTE OF MONEY' | Report says staffers skirted rules to buy 30 coffeemakers, changed athletes' grades, falsified addresses

    January 7, 2009

    BY ART GOLAB Staff Reporter agolab@suntimes.com
    Chicago public school bureaucrats skirted competitive bidding rules to buy 30 cappuccino/espresso machines for $67,000, with most of the machines going unused because the schools they were ordered for had not asked for them, according to a report by the CPS Office of Inspector General.

    That was just one example of questionable CPS actions detailed in the inspector general's 2008 annual report. Others included high school staffers changing grades to pump up transcripts of student athletes and workers at a restricted-enrollment grade school falsifying addresses to get relatives admitted.

    In the case of the cappuccino machines, central office administrators split the order among 21 vocational schools to avoid competitive bidding required for purchases over $10,000. As a result CPS paid about $12,000 too much, according to Inspector General James Sullivan. "We were able to find the same machines cheaper online," he said.

    "We also look at it as a waste of money because the schools didn't even know they were getting the equipment, schools didn't know how to use the machines and weren't prepared to implement them

    Dear Master Cooler,

    I think we all know that Detroit lacks light bulbs every where. I really can not see any light up on anyone's head over there.

    I wonder who is going to be the sec. of education for US? Wait, wasn't he the head of Chicago Public School? The worse public school system in all major US cities? There is a reason why CPS is the worse of all major city. 1) Teachers need to be taught on how to use a coffee machine. 2) They can not operate the coffee machine so no coffee to keep them awake...

    Man, we are so screwed...
