    TAUNTON - A Massachusetts employment organization has canceled its annual job fair because not enough companies have come forward to offer jobs. Richard Shafer, chairman of the Taunton Employment Task Force, says 20 to 25 employers are needed for the fair scheduled for April 6, but just 10 tables had been reserved. One table was reserved by a nonprofit that offers human services to job seekers, and three by temporary employment agencies. Shafer tells the Taunton Daily Gazette the lack of employers means the task force won’t have enough money to properly advertise the fair. The task force has been...

People are talking not just about what was said, but about how it was said. by News Channel 8's Chris Velardi Editorials are meant to create a buzz and an editorial in this week's Southern News is doing just that. The article criticizes the campus job fair and it really goes after military recruiters.

    TIKRIT, Iraq - Abdul Hadi sells souvenirs to U.S. troops at their base — a livelihood that could get him killed by insurgents who are warning Iraqis against dealing with Americans. Yet he goes on with his work. "I am afraid I may become a target, but what can I do?," said Abdul Hadi, a 23-year-old college graduate, said, refusing to give his family name. "There is nothing for me outside. This is a good job." In a recent shift in tactics, insurgents fighting U.S.-occupation forces and their Iraq security allies have also started attacking Iraqi civilians who deal with...

    Two unrelated events last week provide some clues as to why our education system is failing. First, Canada College in San Mateo, California, held a job fair -- for kindergartners! Apparently there is nothing too silly to spend the taxpayers' money on, even when the state has a record deficit. While Canada College supplied the event, the schools had to supply the kids. Why are our schools at all levels so willing -- even eager -- to take children out of the classroom? Our "educators" seem desperate to find almost anything to do other than actually educate the children entrusted...
