"The Response Will Always Be Historic"

This may or may not be considered “historic.”  I mention this as I consider something that can serve as “modern MLHS history.”  But…I was told recently by someone in our federation (a leader who has been here a long time) that having five calls out at one...

"God Blesses the Work of His Gospel

Two statements are guiding this edition of “Look Both Ways.”  One is a question from someone that we recently called to serve here.  The question was, “Is there a history of the school in the last ten years?”  To my knowledge, there is not.  The other is...

The MLHS Class of 1968 will have a reunion this Saturday, along with a tour of their alma mater.  I look forward to leading that tour, not only because it’s fun to be part of all the reminiscing that takes place, but also because I’m old enough to remember things that happened in...

"Now, For More Madness"

“There is sense to all this madness.”  I noted that bullet point in a principal’s report to the MLHS Board of Control from twenty years ago.  Are you wondering what he was referring to?  Well, the reason I was going through minutes from that time frame was because I...

"Around Here"

What catechism did you “grow up with”?  For me, it was the “brown” one, also known as the “Gausewitz Catechism.”  I still have my copy.  I have my wife’s grandfather’s copy. Any time I smell the pages of that book it brings back...
