The district announced Tuesday, Jan. 24, that it received an anonymous donation to establish the “Teachers Live Here” initiative. Holland Public Schools will pay $25,000 in down payment assistance for HPS teachers who buy homes within or near the district and commit to teaching at HPS for an additional five years. “What a great day for Holland, Michigan, and Holland Public Schools,” said Holland Mayor Nathan Bocks during Tuesday’s event. 'Teachers Live Here' provides stability for teachers, stabilizes and strengthens our schools and adds strong vibrant threads to the fabric of Holland.
My Take: Democrats use extreme messaging to deflect from real issuesDemocrats are upping their "nastiness campaign" ahead of midterms. Tell the “MAGA Republicans” they’re not welcome in their own country. Obviously, Joe Biden and his administration know that the “MAGA Republicans” are not a dangerous threat to the country. However, to say, the Democrats are passing forward-looking legislation that will improve the lives of millions of Americans ... really? It is the issues that matter most to them and no matter how Democrats try to deflect attention away from their failures, the American voter is smarter than that.3 months ago The Holland Sentinel
Hope College football rebounds with shutout 'statement'HOLLAND - After losing three consecutive games and facing an Olivet team that was averaging more than 43 points per game on offense, the struggling Hope College football team could have been in for another long day. "Very rarely do you see shutouts in college football these days because the rules are written for (the offense) to score points," said Hope coach Peter Stuursma. In the second half, we did everything except for putting the ball in the end zone, but we also held on to the ball for a long time. A high snap over Hope quarterback Chance Strickland's head was recovered by Olivet at the Hope 12-yard line. McKenzie didn't quite make it into the end zone for Hope, but he came up huge whenever his offense became a bit stagnant.3 months ago The Holland Sentinel

Evil is symbolized in the Bible as the devil, Satan, the Prince of Darkness, and Beezebul (called "the prince of demons" in Matthew 12:24). Yet, in my lifetime there has never been a human being on the historical stage as evil as Putin. Stalin, Hitler and Mao and some others were arguably even more evil, and cost more lives, than Putin. It is the Church's task, along with all people of faith, to identify evil such as Putin, and then never let our government negotiate and compromise with such evil. Those who compromise with evil instead of standing up to it become enablers of evil, as we saw in Munich in 1938.3 months ago The Holland Sentinel
