1980

"The Republican Party in the United States of America came into being in the 1980s over the issue of slavery, and the man who embodied the ideals of that Republican Party was none other than Abraham Lincoln, who gave his life for his country to end discrimination," Durbin said.
I'm hoping this was a typo & we didn't still have slavery in 1980.

I seriously hope Shannon

I seriously hope Shannon Drummond, Robert Baylor and Duane Thomas are all charged with fraud also. They are no less guilty than Frazer in my book.

A wonderful way to teach the next generation how to respectfully disagree with your "boss". This is wrong on so many levels.

Mega campus

I think a mega campus would be fantastic. However, I imagine the cost would be staggering. If they know they would have enough property by the middle school to do this, maybe they should work toward a mega campus in steps. Rather than add a forth pre-K to an existing school like Sherwood Heights, they should add it to the middle school, etc... Obviously much more work needs to be done to make this a workable plan whichever direction they decide to go.

Re: Riverfront study

As a long time business proprietor and property owner in this area I was very interested to read this article. We have never been contacted by anyone regarding this issue. Glad to know that the City feels it can speak for us. Apparently we have the right to pay our property tax, storm water fee, etc for the last 53 years and just shut up and take whatever comes our way.

"Unless councilors Farrell

"Unless councilors Farrell and Herrick volunteer those emails, the next step is up to the courts," Bouchard said.

Councilor Dan Herrick said he does not use email.

Huh? They're taking the city to court for something that doesn't even exist??

The Head Start is in another building at 31 River St from what I see.
