Keep Writing Your Own Release

I make more money after you get sued over a bad release.

I watched an attorney tell another shopper in an office-supply store to go ahead and buy the will making software the shopper was holding. I was, to say the least, confused. After the shopper left I asked the attorney why he had said that.

The attorney’s answer was simple. I can get $500 for writing a will. If that guy write’s his own, I or some attorney will get $5000 or more to fix his mistakes once he dies.

Yup, Keep writing your own releases.

I won’t tell you how to run your life, you don’t tell me how to run my ski area!

An article Should Ski Areas Expand When Skier Numbers Are Flat? Raises some interesting questions. However I’m not sure those are questions the public should be asking.

The Ski Area Citizens’ Coalition is saying that ski areas should not be expanding their terrain when the number of skiers is not growing. Basically the Ski Area Citizens’ Coalition is grading ski areas on their environmental footprint and expansion is a negative aspect of their score card. They are then tying its grade to the lack of growth in the number of skiers coming to resorts.

Resorts who receive a good grade are happy with it and resorts who receive a bad grade found fault with the grading system. I had the same response all throughout my formal education.

Grading anyone on its sustainability, its environmental concerns are great. I try and check those issues when I deal or make a purchase from some companies. However tying it into an economic issue, when most resorts are making money is a little lame.

This is different from the National Ski Area Association’sSustainable Slopes Program which grades ski areas on their environmental score card.

Playgrounds will be flat soon

No swings, teeter totters or anything above a blade of grass…artificial grass.

Cabell County Schools are removing swing-sets from all elementary school playgrounds. The swing-sets are being

Swing seat rust

removed because of insurance issues and lawsuits stemming from swing-set injuries.

In the past two years, the school district has settled two swing-set claims and is fighting two swing-set related lawsuits.

However, there was a quote that caught my attention. “”In this day and age, we have to do everything we can to keep kids safe,” said Jedd Flowers of the school district.

Why? Why is it the school systems’ job to keep kids safe? There is a difference between falling down or falling off a swing and being kept safe. This is not an issue where young children are being put at risk. At what point in time do we start putting kids in bubble wrap before sending them out the door.

See Risk Management: Preventing Injuries or Preventing Lawsuits? for more of my comments on this idea.

It is this quote that sent me through the roof!

Many of the county’s elementary schools use mulch around their swing sets, although national safety standards now call for rubber-based surfaces, Stewart said. Those types of surfaces can cost at least $7,500 per swing set, he said.

A new standard created by some do gooder group has forced the removal of swing-sets from the school yard. Sure rubber surfaces are better but not everyone can afford one. All the creation of this standard did was eliminate swing-sets not keep kids safe. At least it is going to be a standard that will eventually be obsolete because no on will have a swing set.

A commercial swing-set with four swings costs a playground about $1000 to $1500. However, when you add the cost of the rubber matting the total price of a swing-set is $9000! Or roughly 6 swing-sets.

When I said flat ground? The swing-sets are not going to be replaced with anything because the school district no longer deals with playgrounds.

The dictionary will have to change its definitions; playground will now be a synonym for field.

See School system removing swings

For more articles about how ridiculous standards are see Can a Standard Impede Inventions?, Basics of the Article are Good – But it confuses certification, accreditation and most importantly standards. and This is how a standard in the industry changes…..but….

Sorry my headline is incorrect. Teeter totters were removed years ago because they were dangerous………
