Radio dot com app is the official who almost KM BZ downloaded today listen to us any time anywhere. I'm terra marks are nears 981 KM BZ. Here. More parks. Lottery Tuesday. Yeah. Went 76. Yeah 779. There's a story here I heard it on the Jimmy we've got this one touch on it does from here knows that it. Stamkos picked it right through. Goddard news. I'll be Lawrence school board on Monday. Signaled support for a draft policy that would end door to door fund raising. For district activities. The policy will be brought back for the board at its may 29 meeting for a final decision the policy would forbids school districts classes teams or clubs any of them associated with the district. From soliciting money door to door that was a stricter recommendation that a previous draft the policy shared with the board December. Global bankers are school board president chanting Campbell. Ed board member Kelly Jones not when the tanker job who serve on the board policy committee. It just acquire for cash as. Soon. Said safety concerns led to the door to door solicitation bad. Kelly Jones said that she has made hundreds of at home visits and Lawrence. During her career working for social services. She is mostly greeted graciously but has had a knife held on her from an individual on a mental health crisis unlike schoolchildren she says she was trained. In how to handle a tough situation. I know a little something about knocking on doors she said it is my professional recommendation that we not put our students in that situation. So the lower school district. Is now considering. A policy a no vote on later this month. That would forbid students in a cloak of in June school activity. In this sport. From going door to door asking for donations. Whether there selling some thing. Or whether they're just simply saying hey I'm on the cheerleading squad around mama. I'm in the band. We're trying to get money to go perform in the Macy's. Thanksgiving Day parade in New York would you care to contribute. Those door to door activities will soon potentially. The outlaw. And it's. I think it is one person who works and social services. Who goes door to door. Knocking on doors where there is the potential for a dangerous situation. Who's blowing everything out of proportion because one time this school board member had a knife. Exposed to her she thinks every Tommy Kidd goes to adore all gonna have and I've exposed to them. Summer ship was murdered and her body wasn't found for years after going door to door doing government census surveys. You know what I let my kids randomly knock on doors up and down the street asking for donations hill. To the now. Not happening I let my hat do women you know I with her why walk with her body language and totally different scenario. And you stay in the car because it was raining you told me that no I walked. I never drove. And it's not I think I would think it's doing it for two reasons safety number one. Number two. I feel like we live in an arrow were everyone's kids are asking for money for banned it OK for now we're getting into yeah car. You pay me just when he and I'll pay you that Tony's got I'll pay twenty for your candy bars and you pay me Tony for the banter let me take the guilty as I've ever felt at work. Was when my it was selling Girl Scout Cookies. Years ago. And she asked me if I would bring the cookie. Sign up sheet to work. And I did. And I felt guilty about it. I felt guilty asking you I felt guilty asking Kara well that want cookies and lawn bags. Cookies people will buy if you just set this sheet out say look you want cookies or they aren't you don't I don't care. The other fund raiser is lawn banks I am going to buy those anyway. In the fall. So if your school sellable on bags for you know ten dollars parole I absolutely will support that some on the buy anyway. Can there really aren't we all just peddling crap. Back and forth to one another for the stuff that's why I don't want and are you bothering and it. Is this Dana are we peddling crap. To borrow your phrase. Or are we all looking at each other saying hey will you help me out so my kid can do something. That I'm not gonna be able to pay for Obama's. Will release saying GAAP. My kid wants to go to band can't or Mikey wants ago audit cheerleading competition. Or the baseball team is looking to play and determined it's not funded by the school. And it's gonna cost a lot of money to sandal these kids there and some would probably can afforded anyway were asking for a little bit of well. You can easily say now. You have to say yes. That's all I'm asking. So let me ask you this. You can't really say no to a kid and that's where people get annoyed because when a six year old says can I please have twelve dollars for a candle. Most people are not gonna look at that twelve year old ago now and shut the door on the child's face you'd be shocked. To my look at term. Now let me tell you this when my soul Girl Scout Cookies and we practiced. And she would knock on my door and I would pretend before she ever went out. I would open the door and I would pretend to be a stranger and I'm like yes man help you and then she would have to give me her sales pitch. And finally I got them where Mike. You're good care Watsco. And we would go door to door her aren't aren't. Hi my name's my parks and eyelid and I would always stellar point to where you live or at least in the general vicinity don't point right to the house. But I live right over there in the other block I'm selling Girl Scout Cookies today would you like to buy some. That was what we worked on. I didn't tell our you know tome exact number we would've. And I would guests. 40%. Of the people that she knocked on their doors would by the cookies. And usually it was one box two boxes. The other 60% would say pirated bought from somebody else and that includes. I would love to buy some cookies but if I gave you money I can't go to work tomorrow because I won't be known for gas in my car and. SharePoint. It's a different ever so this is right here yet but your neighborhood. So I guess frenzy that we does that whenever you undermanned opponent and no no. So we would get probably 40%. Maybe third. Who would say OK I'll buy cookies if you get. Okay I'm surprised if someone comes to my door and asks and does that pitch we had a little people ask a couple months ago. Popcorn and eat popcorn. You casting doubt also yeah. And it's not very at. This park. I either. It is silly feelings getting that you know and I every kid your neighbor that will. So. It's like he's reminded me of the kid in the movie hi my name is Russ. This is something. To me silence in him you know I bought that movie. Well let's let's talk about movies that others bought for each other how does that Star Wars movie I bought for you. Ice I don't feel good movie. Where is the Star Wars movie I bought for you shift okay thank you I tight end. My case. Let me ask you some summer breezes up on the tax. If we don't allow our children to go door to door and be rejected and here know how they ever gonna function in the real world. Isn't this a lesson in life. The lesson being learned how to take a no and say thank you for your time I appreciate it don't slam that door in front of me please. And walk away and just try again. Are out this is the one certification of America. We don't want our kids to be told no I don't want my kid on the back. Don't kids need to learn you can't the lord knows you're dead. 576779. How many people in this very audience. Are listening at 345 in the afternoon because you are in the sales. You're in sales. That's why you're in your car right now you're going to another sales call. That's what you do for a living and you probably make pretty decent living doing it. I would bet as a sales banner sales woman. On a daily basis you hear the word in the arm now. Where did you learn to accept that word. Probably when you were a kid. As a girl scout selling cookies. As a boy scout selling popcorn. Or is a member of the band going door to door saying hey we wanna be in the Macy's day parade would you care to buy. This Hershey's bar. No it really wouldn't but I'll give you a dollar and in my porch. Okay. 57677. On it right here from.

We prefer every year to right out of 22 dollar check. Thirty dollar check straight to the PTA. And then you avoid all the kids selling altogether the school sees more of the money than they would see out of the fund raiser which takes a percentage on it. Plus nobody wants the crap. No begging involved and this way we can pretend we're being helpful. But you don't have to go to order. But really I don't like I do my federal walking around talking to people.
