BBBS to present 'The Blind Side' movie tonight at Lerner

Movie event is part of Mentoring Month and admission is free

ELKHART — In celebration of January as National Mentoring Month, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County will present the movie “The Blind Side” in association with the Lakeshore Railroad Historical Foundation. This feature movie will be shown at The Lerner Theatre Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. (doors will open at 5:30 p.m.). The movie is free to the public and donations will be accepted.

Prior to the movie showing, Mayor Moore’s office will be delivering a Proclamation to kick off January as Mentoring Month for the City of Elkhart at 6:30 p.m. The media is invited to attend.

The Blind Side, starring Quinton Aaron and Sandra Bullock, is based on a true-life story about Michael Oher, an abandoned boy with little future, who was taken in by a caring family who wanted to see him succeed. “We chose The Blind Side because the film demonstrates the importance for adults to respond to the need of children for caring mentors in their lives,” stated Stephanie Patka, Executive Director. “The work of mentors teaches children how to believe in themselves and overcome all odds.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters matches local children with an adult mentor in a staff supported one-to-one relationship. For information or to volunteer, please contact the office at 574.875.1039 or info@bbbselkhart.org.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
