February flies by
One of our members won 47 thousand dollars as a settlement with the Anchorage School District after many years. I went to one summation with the Alaska Human Rights Commission December 8, 2009 and some meeting about it in June 2011, I believe. I lost respect for the Disctrict after listening to Brad Owens, who I knew from disability work I think he had worked with Access Alaska at one time, and the attitudes that were rampant in the summary in December of 2009. I was really gratified for Vilma Anderson, who is blind, Latin American, a woman and just redeemed her senior status. She siad that what she did will help future blind people. This is what I have said and what my husband has said.
