Opinion Letters

Dear Dr. Brigman,

I have several questions that I have not been able to get from your office for some time. I hope that you can help me. I have questions about our 2012-2013 calendar. I have tried for a month to obtain information vital to thoroughly consider this calendar. In an effort to prevent another contested school calendar, I am hoping that you or the board may be able to answer these questions.

Two articles in the 02-17-12 issue of The Franklin Press caught my eye. One was titled, “Legal or Ethical: The twain don’t meet” the other was “Board axes reference to slope maps”.

Postponing everything for the next electorate or your children is not the way to run a government, day-to-day decisions should be made by the local government.

In my 79 years on this earth I have watched creeping socialism and is now our Army. Roadblocks to see your papers without probable cause.
