Vikings VP Kevin Warren And Family Adopt Lucy Craft Laney Community School

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 28, 2012 – 6:31 am

Monday was a special day at Lucy Craft Laney Community School in Minneapolis because it was the first day of the school year. But Monday was special for another reason at the local school, too.

Vikings Vice President of Legal Affairs and Chief Administrative Officer Kevin Warren, the highest-ranking African-American business executive with an NFL team, and his wife, Greta, donated 650 backpacks filled with school supplies to the Minneapolis school, brightening the day for students and helping them begin the school year on the right foot.

At 9:15 a.m. on the students’ first day of class, Warren distributed the backpacks, which were age-appropriate for primary, elementary and junior high students, to the entire student body. Additional school supplies for the full school year will also be made available for all students. The donation comes as part of the Warren family’s broader commitment to “adopt” Lucy Laney, a school that is predominantly African-American and has 98% of its student population coming from underserved communities.

“After spending a few hours at Lucy Laney with Principal Mauri Melander and Community Engagement Specialist Jade Weatherington, as well as Jeanne Mock from the ‘Kids In Need’ Foundation, and hearing that school supplies are considered a luxury rather than a necessity, I was clearly reminded how fortunate and blessed my family is,” said Warren. “My recent visit moved me and my wife to act and make a commitment to Lucy Laney and the Minneapolis community.”

“This is an extremely generous act by Kevin and his wife, Greta,” said Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf. “It’s rewarding for us as team owners to see members of the Vikings family going above and beyond to become involved in the community. We applaud the Warrens for their kindness.”

The Warren family envisions developing a long-term plan to provide assistance and educational resources to Lucy Craft Laney Community School, including providing ongoing school supplies, school uniforms, and athletic uniforms and establishing a computer laboratory and mentoring program.

    This is a great program– we have been doing this at my church for years and adopted a school in Minneapolis. For one family to do this is very generous.

    Like I said, this is something our church does– we also have adopted a specific school. We do this for the kindergartners and I think first grade– it costs 30 bucks per pack so we start them off with everything they need– they love it. It is also a city school and a lot of the kids don’t have the supplies for success. We need more of this– if this is all done by this one family, that is astounding– my church has a couple thousand people.

    Anything that makes school more fun for kids is probably good.

    Behaviorial Supports are needed desperately in the Mpls School District. Teachers can educate all the children, but they need help!

    Teachers need to be spending their time teaching, not disciplining kids. Without Researched Behavioral Supports we will continue to let our children down.

    This is not the fault of the teachers, parents, or the children. It is the fault of our society, and the lack of importance we place on the education of our youth!!!

  8. By Titus Flavius Caesar Vespasianus Augustus on Aug 28, 2012 | Reply

    Frederick — you are talking about a symptom. The root of the problem is the redefinition of the family as well as the state telling parents how to discipline. Correction in poor behavior is mislabeled as child abuse. The state wants these kids for a long time, i.e. prison.

Don’t let the religious left wing zealots tell you otherwise— and that is what they are– religious about their policies. I do not want govt to control my life through their policies. People are behind those policies, so in effect, what happens is they IMPOSE their will and convictions upon my life.

    It makes me lol that Mitt Romney goes around boasting that he only paid 13% and he’s glad he hasn’t paid a penny more. He has a tax policy which will make him pay the absolute least in taxes. Then he has the b a l l s to tell the American people to believe him when he says “he’s paid his fair share.” Meanwhile me and most Americans are paying a tax rate of about 28%. I dont see how these Bush Era tax cuts for the rich have trickled down to the middle class.

They have you brainwashed– and the irony — All your heroes are in the one percent. Every one of your football players– even Joe Webb is a one percenter. And what does he do to contribute to society?

    Why is Sherals ahead of Jairus Wright on the kick/punt return depth chart? Let’s see Sherels has 5 punt returns for an average of 1.7 yards per. Wright has 3 punt returns for an average of 14.7 yards per. Who is beating out who? Sherels is out on Thursday so Wright gets more chances to show he can beat out the sure handed but very average Sherels.

    Cook has a total of 18 tackles for his career in his 3rd season..

    Sherels has 23 tackles going into his second season…

    Cook doesn’t have a sack…

    Sherels does have 1 sack…

    Sherels is versatile…And can be used in the kick return game…Never drops a kick…Never fumbles a return…Never even bobbles a ball making a catch…

    So tell me Spencer with Sherels clearly having the better stats…

    Titus…. you are right, lower taxes and you do create jobs. The problem is, the taxes are getting lowered for the wrong income brackets. It’s not the wealthy that create jobs, it’s the middle class… a class those in the convention in Florida have forgotten about.

    Giving tax breaks to the top earners does nothing to stimulate the economy. If those with the where-withall see an opportunity to increase their wealth, they will do so regardless of how much of the profit goes to the government in taxes. The lie that tax breaks for the welathy stimulate the economy is one told to get suckers to vote money out of their own pockets.

    Give the tax breaks to the middle class, the consumers, and our economy will thrive. If the middle class has more money to spend, they will create a higher demand for various goods and services. That demand creates business opportunities for would be business owners which in turn creates jobs.

    Supply side economics is a joke and I’m not laughing. Let’s create a demand and give business owners incentives to stay here in the US in the form of tariffs that match those put on US goods shipped to foreign countries.

    Well, News, you are right in one sense- middle class create jobs in the form of small business creation, but the controls, regulations (epa, etc) and corporate taxation as well as unions holding companies hostage for higher wages are what have pushed manufacturing overseas– that cannot be disputed.

    How many of the catches Sherels made this preseason were “fair catches” with no return…

    Was the ball he returned a 40 yard kick…Caught inside the Vikings own 10 yard line…

    Or a 60 yard boot from the opponents ten yard line…With the punter clearly out kicking his coverage team ???…

  41. By The News on Aug 28, 2012 | Reply

    Oh, it can be easily disputed. You imply that those are the only reasons that companies take their manufacturing overseas, and this just isn’t factual. Bill Clinton did this country a very large injustice (one that he’s since admitted to) by signing NAFTA. NAFTA is the primary reason our jobs have melted away.

    Controls and regulations are necessary to avoid monopolies and to keep companies from destroying the environment. I live in timber country, and grew up in a logging family. I have no problem with logging, mining, etc. I do know that the practices of early last century, if allowed to continue, would have made it improbable that my family would have had timber to harvest.

    Unions are the primary reason that most of us make a living wage. Have they gotten too full of themselves? Yes, they need to be reined in some. TO do away with them completely would be a disaster.

    NAFTA took the restraints (tariffs) off the business owners wanting to enlarge their profit margins by neglecting environmental controls and taking advantage of impoverished employee bases. It was inevitable that those in power would jump at the chance to move. In the short term, it was a homerun. Long term, it has severely weakened the US economy… our demand is weakened and it’s going to get far worse.

    Sound like a typical liberal– espousing a lot of head knowledge but not making connections, let alone understanding human nature. Decent living wage– some of the salaries are ridiculous and have bankrupted enough companies that the workers ended with no wage– not even going to go there. Unions were necessary when they were created, especially in light of the horrific conditions such as portrayed by Upton Sinclair. But, like most revolutions, the new regime soon imitated their former oppressors–today, unions do more harm than good.

    Most and perhaps even all schools in the U.S.A. discipline with a reactive style with things like detention, missed recess, extra assignments, hitting, or suspension. These things just contribute to the problem.

    Researched behaviorial supports are positive, proactive intervention actions.

    I could say that about the “right” to bear arms Titus. Militias were necessary at the time, but today (when there is no longer need for a militia), people carrying weapons around do more harm than good. Would you have the right to bear arms abolished along with unions?

    We must quit blaming the parents. What we need is better college training of teachers. Currently teachers are not trained to deal with the most difficult misbehaviors-at all. If that is what you mean by the system, then I agree.

    But our way of “discipline” must change.

    No, I’m not what you Rush fanatics might deem a “typical liberal”. I happen to be a fiscal conservative. It’s unfortunate that neither the Democrats nor the Republicans follow a fiscally conservative avenue. The Democrats want to give us everything and tax us to pay for it. The Republicans outspend the Democrats (fact) when they are in power, but give tax breaks (primarily to the wealthy) to drive this country deep into debt and then hand the reins over to the Democrats and claim its the Dems fault (this has been their strategy for decades).

    This country should be run like a household. If you can’t pay for it, you don’t need it. Like that kooky old Ross Perot claimed, “If I ran my companies the way this country is run, I’d be bankrupt!”

    So if you want to wallow in the dogma of your particular party, feel free. I assume that you believe that women that are being raped can chose whether or not they will become pregnant from the attack… its part of your parties platform.

    I just wrote a long piece explaining about the right to bear arms– and it did not post. UGH. I will write a very short piece — most people are ignorant of the main premise behind this right– it was not to fend off foreign invasion but to fight our own government — remember when this was written the tyranny rule was the way of the world. To say this does not pertain to today though is shortsighted. Actually, a democratic republic such as we have here is a hair from becoming a totalitarian rule– and that is always there.

    One of the major problems with unions (and I have belonged to them before, so I speak not just theoretically) is they foster an entitlement culture. A worker with seniority receives greater benefit than a worker who contributes more based on merit– want to see the result of that? Look at France and economies such as that– I spoke with business owners in Paris during the last major strikes where workers were angry that their guaranteed jobs would no longer be guaranteed. The business owners were happy– they could fire someone who was lazy, but the workers cried like spoiled babies– entitlement never can beat the self-reliant, responsible empowerment– which at the end of the day provides people with dignity and the human spirit is lifted. Get govt out of peoples’ lives- they are not our parents and it does not foster individual productivity.

I wouldn’t care if their relationships were called “Civil Unions” or “Marriage” except for the fact that all US laws concerning these relationships use the word marriage.

    Marriage should not be in the law at all. It is a strictly religious idea that is about a couple’s relationship with eachother and their God. But so long as the government recognizes marriage in its laws, religious sects should not be allowed to define its boundaries.

    Why are the people who are fighting homòsèxual marriage rights not making any efforts to exclude people who don’t follow their religion? Why are they not making any efforts to make divorce illegal? These people can’t stomach the idea that people of the same gender are allowed to make a commitment to one-another, but have no problem with the millions who view the phrase “till death do us part” as a six-month experiment.

    “Here’s what we should be scared of … 2 quotes

    Paul Ryan said “”I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff.” – Rep. Paul Ryan, Republican vice presidential candidate, in a 2005 speech

    Some accuse LaVey of paraphrasing the Nine Satanic Statements from Rand’s Atlas Shrugged without acknowledgement, though others maintain that LaVey simply was drawing inspiration from the novel.[28][29] LaVey later affirmed the connection with Rand’s ideas by stating that LaVeyan Satanism was “just Ayn Rand’s philosophy, with ceremony and ritual added”.[30]”

    Titus … you are under a spell if you think Unions are the problem. Look at any chart and you will see when Republicans started their propaganda of Union negativity … unions started to decline and the middle class has declined at the exact same rate as unions.

    Unions provide healthcare …. wouldnt need government if Unions were still stron

    Unions provide retirement … wouldnt need SSI if Unions were still strong

    But keep attacking unions and one day we can all be unpaid interns aka slaves

    That is big because the Jacksonville offense revolves around the play making ability of MJD…Jennings is an okay RB…But MJD is their powerhouse threat…

Sure, corporate monopoly and the 1% have made it difficult to attain that dream, but if we penalize them for it, how can anyone attain it? Penalizing those who are better off than the rest of us is nothing more than class warfare. If our government caves into some of these ideals, then we may as well call ourselves the Socialist States of America. The problem, people are not versed well enough in history. They are blind to the fact that the ideals they stand for, are the ideals that this nation has fought hard to resists. Basically, STUPID PEOPLE ARE RUINING THIS COUNTRY!! WELL LISTEN UP!!

    OTK – I’m taking it as the coach saying if they resolve the conflict with MJD, he will be used as the #2 RB for the entire game. From the looks of it, if they run their offense anything like they did in 2011, he would be getting 4-10 carries. But because of his skills, I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets a couple more than that.

    *That posted before I was finished…

    I believe it resembles the system that they left Europe to avoid. Not in the same respect that royalty had full rule over all of the economy, but the big businesses in America are similar to the royalty. Whenver any competition hints as a possibility, they simply need to go in with their checkbooks and destroy the competition before it begins.

    Little businesses cannot grow into anything big unless they are presenting an entirely new product/idea. Monopolies are strong across the country, and something needs to be done to even out the playing field to allow for the American dream to be realized once again.

    Fact Romney will eliminate middle class tax breaks

    Fact Paul Ryan worships Ayn Rand

    Fact Ayn Rand philosophy is that of the Satanic Bible … Individualism/Selfishness

    Fact you cant be pro war and pro life … one either is against killing or one is not

    Fact rent went up , gas went up, utilities went up

    So what lie?

    You are right Shawn, both parties are to blame, yet the current admin has done nothing to fix what our two party dictatorship has broken. I’ll give Romney a chance this time around. Obama has obviously done nothing but talk. I’m sick of talk.

    Mitt is a program and says what he is told which is why he has stood on both sides of every issue …

    Rick Santorum said it best

    “We should Give Obama a second term if Mitt Romney is the GOP nominee”

    Romney is an awful choice and then Paul Ryan has connection to Ayn Rand not good

    69 days left til the election and I am STILL WAITING to hear the DETAILS of how Romney/Ryan will make their great plan of 12 million jobs will happen? Corporations already get tax cuts – the Bush tax cuts – and those corps are not creating jobs – they are instead taking HUGE profits and giving poorer quality of service instead of hiring. Why would they suddenly have jobs for hire if we have a Republican in office? R/R guts social programs that effect the poorest and most needy folks – whom we are suppose take care of like the elderly – like Ryan’s mom and Ryan who received social security benefits when his father died…I’m sorry how can two men of such claimed FAITH want to guts the very programs that help those they say need the help the most?

    I would like to see a country where people stop the partisanship and vote for policies, not people or affiliations– get the basics done -0- transportation, security- both domestic and military, some social welfare net based on work programs, other infrastructure, and libraries– lots of libraries– and stay within a budget — with low taxes so we keep our income!!! If there are no results – vote them out.

    If the Hyphen doesn’t play that means they already decided to cut him or most likely they want to sneak him on to the practice squad. But I assume he’ll be playing in 4th quarter. I assume Ponder will get a couple reps in the 1st, then Webb rest of 1st, 2nd, and maybe a little of the 3rd, Sage 3rd and some of the 4th, and MBT finishing it up. This is just speculation of course.

    @Parody,

    Jones does not have all the answers to getting kids to behave in school. I don’t think the researchers do either, although they claim to have the answers.

    But they have enough answers to get rid of all the harsh ways of discipline that just continue the problem.

    Here is an example of a Proactive Positive Behavioral Support:

    Johnny repeatedly hits other students. Root cause may be that he doesn’t know how to read very well. Solution: Change his reading curriculum so that he can have success. (Note: He would not have to leave the classroom)

  203. By Frederick Jones on Aug 29, 2012 | Reply

    Hitting and punishments send the wrong message to children. Yes, I used to hit and use punishment.

    Think about it. If Jones hits you because you spilled the milk, how does it make you feel? If Jones makes you wash all the floors in the house because you spilled the milk, how does THAT make you feel?

    Titus, you and I went round and round last night, but I agree with your last political post.

    Spoiler Alert, to claim that Obama has done nothing to help our current financial plight is disengenuous. Ask the employees of GM if they think he’s done nothing. We have had over 20 straight months of job growth under his administration. But, let’s just leave that aside.

    There have been over 3000 pieces of legislation that have been introduced to Congress in the last 3+ years…. 61 have made it through. Sixty One.

    The first 2 years the democrats had the majority and should have been able to push through their agenda. The Republicans set a record for the number of filibusters they enacted in that time frame… in many cases halting legislation that they were in favor of until the Democrats agreed with them. Since the mid-terms, they haven’t had to resort to this tactic, merely squashing nearly all legislation by voting party lines.

    Is this really the government our founding fathers envisioned? If Romney is elected, and the Democrats follow suit, there will be another 4 years of nothing substantial getting done.

    Our elected officials have lost sight of the big picture. They are supposed to be in DC serving our country, not special interests and their own political party in an effort to line their own pockets. This is true of both the Dems and Reps.

    If Johnny repeatedly hits my kid, I would want to see him out of the classroom until he can show that he isn’t a threat anymore. If Johnny repeated hits my kid, I am going to have a big problem with his parents and the school.

    Thats a strong message to send to students, Fred. “Hey kids, if you don’t like what we are teaching you, just reach over and sock the girl next to you… like our friend Johnny. You won’t have to work to succeed, we’ll just make things easier for you. Have a swell day!”

    @ THe News – Thank You! Your comment shows the ignorance of discipline with love!

    There are many things that cannot get better by kissing it away. It surprises me how Fred admits that he doesn’t have the answer to the problem, but says we should not attempt to deal with the problem until somebody finds his answer for him.

    Parents need to take responsibility for disciplining their children and making sure they act properly while in school. If they cannot, then the children should not be allowed to remain, as they are stealing from the learning of everyone else.

    It’s the same with the no child left behind joke. We don’t know how to ensure that EVERY moronic child learns enough to advance, so we just reduce what is required to advance, and bring down the overall intelligence of the student population instead.

    Come the first game of the season as of now it looks like it will be an even front running wise against the Jags. MJD and I assume A.P. will both have limited playing time. I think our run defense will be able to hold Jennings in check. I also think Ponder has progressed more than Gabbert has. It will be fun watching the two friends play each other though.
