To the editor: Vote 'no' with community, school and student pride
p>Regarding taxes, I have seen claims that our "voter-approved levies" have dropped slightly. This is true; however, the writer failed to mention that the "other local levies," which includes the levies our school board can set, have gone up significantly — way more than doubling...

There are 7.5 billion of us living, eating and breathing here on planet Earth. And although each of us is unique, we have one thing in common. Each of us, without exception, began our journey in the same way: as newborn babies. Naked and afraid. Think about that. Let it sink in. Look...
