In favor of skateboard park (06/21/09)

Disappointed with ceremony (06/21/09)
To the Editor: Our son graduated from Northview on May 29, 2009. Graduation night is supposed to be one of the most memorable nights for the graduate, as well as for the parents. But when our son, or us parents think back in the years to come of his graduation night, we'll always remember the night our son didn't get his diploma booklet handed to him on stage.
