|Three Lakes castle might need new king|
Letter to the Editor:
Now that spring is coming, maybe I?have a story about last winter.Once upon a time, there was a kingdom (the Three Lakes School District) and it was run by a king (Dr. George Karling). Now the subjects (the students, the parents and faculty) never saw the king very much. He never attended school concerts, sporting events; in fact you hardly ever saw him at the castle (the school).
The only time the subjects ever saw King George is if there was a school board meeting, graduation and, of course, referendum time. King George did like the salary his subjects paid him, but wanted to rule a different kingdom (Nicolet College).
Now one day a great Arctic cold blast came over the kingdom. It was predicted a couple days earlier by the local wizards (meteorologists) so everyone prepared for it. In fact, all the kingdoms in northern Wisconsin closed their castles in advance so their subjects could prepare for child care if needed.
But not King George. The defiant king would not hear anything about it. His subjects were aghast and many of them did not send their children to class that day. Since half the children did not go to class, very little education, if any, was accomplished.
King George knew the next day would be worse, so he knew he had to close the castle. Unlike all the other kingdoms who gave the notice of closing the castle the night before, King George decided to wait until the very last second to announce the closing which caused many of his subjects uncalled-for stress in preparing child care for the day. Again his subjects were very disappointed in the king.
What is the moral of this story? If King George doesn’t like his crown or his subjects, maybe he should give it to someone who appreciates them. This subject is tired of the arrogant king.
