Howard County students prepared for walkouts

The walkout lasted 17 minutes to represent one minute for each person killed in a school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14.

The group plans to meet at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds, which is about 2,000 feet from Coeur d'Alene High School. The email also included vague and ominous threats of punishment if students proceed to walk at the previously scheduled time, which could range anywhere from suspension to detention. The national event is focused on pushing Congress to change federal gun laws. Students who don't want to participate could bring a note from a parent to opt out.

Students across the country will walk out of class Wednesday to protest gun violence.

"At 10 a.m., in union with the national walkout, students will walk out of their classrooms for 17 minutes in solidarity with the 17 lives lost in Parkland and then will make their way either by walking, driving or taking public transport to the Statehouse", she said.

Still, for a Texans team coming off a 4-12 season, and with Deshaun Watson coming off a torn ACL, Solder would likely be worth it. Other options on the offensive line for the Giants in free agency are Ryan Jensen, Josh Sitton, Joe Berger and Nick Easton.

Solar storm could hit Earth this week
Just because this storm isn't up to the hype doesn't mean that solar storms in general should be ignored. If the charged particles have a stronger effect on Earth, it could be considered a G-2 "moderate storm".

Walkout is planned for 10 a.m.

"If it don't stop now, it's going to keep happening", said Ahmad Gordon, a sixth grade student at Citizens Leadership Academy's East Campus. We are saying we don't want to be unsafe anymore.

Schools can issue unexcused absences, assign extra work or discipline students who don't adhere to school policy, but non-disruptive, organized protests and walkouts are protected.

The March for Our Lives rally for school safety is expected to draw hundreds of thousands to the nation's capital on March 24, its organizers said.
