We, too!


Women across America have stood together to say, “Me, too.” We will not be violated by those in power.

Now all Americans should rise up and say, “We, too, will not allow our public lands to be violated.” Those in power should not be allowed to rape our National Monuments with strip mining and rip down trees with chains.

Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in Utah is a beautiful land where my family has hiked and camped for 39 years. It has incredible rock formations, awe -nspiring plateaus, and unique wildlife.

While hiking out to a waterfall we have seen eagles soaring and mule deer grazing. We camped next to hoo doos, watching jackrabbits and red fox. We witnessed dozens of cottontails and big horn sheep while driving at dawn. We keep going back to one special spot to try to spot that badger again.

This is our heritage, land protected for our grandchildren and their grandchildren. We, too will not be violated by those in power.

Change is a Part of Life


My name is Karen Mueller and I have taught at Cedar Springs Public Schools since 1987. This year I will be retiring. My husband has terminal cancer and is feeling well enough to travel, so off we’ll go!  I will miss my precious students very much, but change is a part of life.

Through the years, I’ve seen many changes at our school.  Every change was made for the good of our students. I’m not saying I’ve agreed with every change, but I know the people who made the changes have always worked for what was best for our kids.  Change is a part of life.

Currently I’m excited about my smaller class sizes and having a counselor in the building. During my time at CSPS I have taught over two thousand children, and loved every single one of them.  I have worked under six superintendents and eight principals.  I did not agree with every decision they made, but I am part of a team, so I enthusiastically did my best in every new program that we offered. Change is a part of life.

We will always see change in education. There should be change in education. I hope we can all work together, like we expect our children to. Every teacher and administrator, past and present, truly cares about our kids. We need to do what we expect of our youngest children, “We need kind hands, kind hearts, and listening ears.” I’ve enjoyed working with our current administration at CSPS and I understand change is a part of life. Give change a chance to continue improvement for our district and for our kids.
