Dontá Hughes complains of a “mess” created by the ‘vote no’ crowd who spoke against the Eastern Carver County School Board referendum in November, and that we’re gloating over the defeat of the referendum and have now gone our separate ways. (“Have allowed house to become a mess,” Dec. 26.)

In the most recent edition of the Chaska Herald, an advertisement was placed that should have not have been printed within the newspaper. The advertisement was paid for by the Parents of D112, a group that has caused quite a stir within the community as of late. The advertisement stirs up fe…
I was disgusted to see the inflammatory and misleading ad placed by parentsford112.com in last week's paper. Shame on them for insinuating that District 112’s equity work is a cover for Islamic indoctrination in an attempt to drum up fear and drive a "no" vote.
