Toddman

Toddman Passed Away on 2/10/13

It is with great sadness that we tell you that Todd "Toddman" Anderson passed Sunday afternoon ( 2/10/13).

Toddman was the webmaster for WSI from 2005 through 2013 as well as an active member at WSI events. His interest in WSI and heart felt support for the organization was evident in his Web work and his attendance to events when ever it was possible. He and Ann loved attending the WSI Thunder vs Plunder Hockey Fund Raiser. Even supporting WSI through the purchase of Players Jerseys at the fund raiser auction. Ann would take pictures and Todd would dress up the website with results and post the pictures. Sadly Toddman missed this years fundraiser. We missed him. We will continue to miss him.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Toddman's family during this time of sorrow. R.I.P.

 

 

Students with disabilities

WASHINGTON (AP) - Students with disabilities must be given a fair shot to play on a traditional sports team or have their own leagues, the Education Department says.

Disabled students who want to play for their school could join traditional teams if officials can make "reasonable modifications" to accommodate them. If those adjustments would fundamentally alter a sport or give the student an advantage, the department is directing the school to create parallel athletic programs that have comparable standing to traditional programs.

"Sports can provide invaluable lessons in discipline, selflessness, passion and courage, and this guidance will help schools ensure that students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to benefit from the life lessons they can learn on the playing field or on the court," Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a statement announcing the new guidance Friday.

The groundbreaking order is reminiscent of the Title IX expansion of athletic opportunities for girls and women four decades ago and could bring sweeping changes to school budgets and locker rooms for years to come.
