Narrative for a Better Tomorrow

Narrative for a Better Tomorrow No. 1

The people of Lansing need to know that to make LMA financially self-sufficient two actions will have to be taken. The Village of Lansing and its Airport Past Present Future provides the steps to follow to make that happen- have Cook County exempt existing and future Fixed Based Operators from the useless leasehold tax and make a public pledge to all clients of the airport that the Village will make the extension of the north-south runway by 2000-ft a top priority.

Note

Since the LMA has not had the services of an official manager for 5-years, please email me directly at r.malkas@comcast.net, so Lansing residents can get answers to their questions about the management of their airport.

I will commit to respond to all requests for information about the future of the airport.

Narrative for a Better Tomorrow No. 2

 I could be the only career educator in the country who can explain how we have changed teaching young people about American history over the last five decades.  I was there in the 1970’s and can speak from firsthand experience. That is the primary purpose for writing the Road to Redemption.  You will find it a unique experience because it is a revisionist teaching guide that those who have been deciding what our young should be taught do not want known.  The Road to Redemption provide learning experiences that will allow readers to take an active role in a number of Assignment that will test what is known about major issues facing the country today.  Key to the experience could be having the reader take a role of a teacher and discuss with others the learning experiences presented in the book.  Do not underestimate the capacity of high school students If presented correctly you will be surprised to see how they will appreciate being part of the discussion and you will put them on the Road to Redemption.  You will be sending a message to those who have gotten into the habit of thinking for us, will not think that way any longer.

Narrative for a Better Tomorrow No. 3

This website is being designed so that I can pick up where I left off when I officially retired from being manager of LMA.  If you were to look at an overhead view of the grounds as of 2008 you will see that nothing has changed over the last 16-years, and large tracks of land owned by Lansing are still waiting to be developed, using FAA and Illinois state money on a 95% funding formula. To go back to its once accepted airport development plan the airport must be able to show the Chicago Southland and the entire aviation community that Lansing is committed to the process of making the facility financially self-sufficient. Once done the people of Lansing will no longer be required to subsidize its operation by using the assets now in place more efficiently. That will make the airport pay for itself.  Lansing owns the Ford Hangar and the building next to it that is being used as a restaurant, and the hangar/office complex next to it, the next Quonset building, the once called Sun-Aero building, and all the 90-T-hangars on both side of the east-west runway. Add to the list the building that now serves as the airport’s administration office that can be accessed from Burnham Avenue. What needs to be done. Find an FAA approved purpose for the Ford Hangar, Restructure the entire use of the 3259 building. Review the operators Agreement with ServicePro, the company now occupying the Sun-‘aero building. There is no excuse for vacate T-hangar on the LMA.  Do whatever is necessary to return to full occupancy. Always remember a main source of revenue for the airport will come from the sale of aviation fuel.  I have already provided those who are now in charge of the managing the airport this guidance.  My efforts have not been effective. I encourage comments for readers.  I will respond.

Narrative for a Better Tomorrow No. 4

The original outline for the writing of The Road to Redemption included a set individual Assignments
that the American people should have the opportunity to read and study to be better informed about
current issues facing the country before they go to the voting polls in the 2024 national election. While
in the process it became apparent to me that I had time constraints that would have to be considered if I
hoped to achieve my ultimate objective: to have the book read by as many people as possible before the
election. Because of that I decided to go ahead and have published what I had completed and continue
the narrative in an updated printing, so I could include fast developing events because the campaign to
control the thinking of the American people is relentless and can only be countered by the people
themselves. The most sinister and on-going devices being used is the 1619 Project I discuss in the book.
Assignment 6 will be added and include an up-to-dated account of how the 1619 Project has developed
and how it has been affecting the country. The question of the results of the 2020 national election
being understood efficiently is addressed in a report written in 2020 by John Perazzo, the editor of the
Freedom Center’s Discoverer’s Network-Yes, It Was a Stolen Election. The Report can be found online.
Assignment 14 will give a high school version of a complicate issue that is not understood today related
to the current conflict in Israel. Assignment 15 will address a topic that is not mentioned in today’s high
school world history books. It will introduce to students the fact that between the 5 th and 15 th centuries
there were flourishing kingdoms in Africa that experienced cultural development. A question will arise.
Would the future of the African continent have been different if it had been introduced to the same
conditions made available as Europe advanced and western civilization developed.
Soon I will recommend to Lansing officials that they schedule a community wide public hearing to make
plans to retool the administration of the Lansing airport. I will volunteer to chair such a hearing free of
charge.
