Last night's boundary change meeting gave us a good indication of how each school board member will vote on June 10. Most, if not all, members indicated their dislike of option B1, while four members touted C4. I urge those members to use this next week to further research option C4 and come…

On Feb. 14, my husband and I attended the Foundation 191 Valentine fundraiser. It was our first time attending, and we loved every minute. The silent auction, meal and short presentation at the McColl Pond Environmental Learning Center was wrapped by the beautiful surroundings. Attendees inc…
