  • Redistricting will not just go away

     When is a public hearing not a public hearing?

    When the decision was made prior to listening to the public.

    However, it all works out pretty well when the decision reached is what the public wanted to begin with.

  • North starts fast, ends early over Central

By the end of the talk, the assistant basketball coach was setting up a contact between the Breeden family and the school’s golf coach.
