Budget Issues: One Solution (Congratulations, Jannita!)

If we want to devote more money to education, one solution is to put more students into the system.  Hardworking DEN leader Jannita Demian is doing her part one baby at a time:  jannita-desb.jpgToday, David Matthew Demian was born, making Jannita and husband Laurian parents for the first time.  Matt Monjan reports David to be 19 inches, 5 lbs 4 ounces, and mother and baby doing fine! Because David was unable to sign a release form, a webcam birth for the DEN was not possible, but watch for pictures soon!   This new native Southern Californian was born to a native Southern Californian but maybe this child will know what a snow scraper is (old Jannita story).  Congratulations from us all!

    Congratulations, but it’s been hours since the announcement. No web page, no pictures? It’s not like the kid was born way back in the 20th century or something.

    Just learned the great news at the “official” opening of the LC Institute. A virtual Jannita (and family) is better than no Jannita at all. I miss you so much, but am thrilled at your new addition. God bless you and your family.
