Open letter to school board, public (01/24/10)
Our student drop out problem is a destructive aspect of the educational process in our schools. The numbers of these students are unacceptable and can result in adverse effects on students who remain in our schools and graduate. They can develop a poor attitude toward our school system, retain bad memories of their school days, blame their teachers, principals and school board members for the dropouts. And they should...

Reader says play 'em all (01/24/10)
To the Editor: Mostly, this letter is my opinion, but I feel that it needs to be known. I love small schools for the one on one attention that the students get. The only downfall from small schools is the "name game.' My daughters play basketball on the fifth- and seventh-grade teams. I will be the first to admit and so would they, that they are not super stars. However, they never get a chance to get any better, because they don't have the right name...
Family takes time to share with others (01/24/10)
