Oct. 22, 1989 was a date that rocked my generation of parents. Jacob Wetterling, an 11-year-old boy from St. Joseph, Minnesota, was kidnapped while riding bikes with his brother and friends. Having school-age children at that time, this tragic event put a new level of caution in my parenting.

In recent months it is very apparent that the issue of “critical race theory” (CRT) has caught the attention of parents across the nation. There is no shortage of clips showing parents taking school boards to task. Future elections will certainly change school boards focus and agenda.

In the eight years I have lived in Victoria, the town on the edge of farmland and filled with lakes has changed dramatically. “The Untethered Society” spoken about in the April Gazette wants to set down roots here. I am glad the city is vigilant in planning for its growing neighborhoods.
