Thanks for serving on the school board, all of you! It's a hard and important job. Make a difference!

I'm hopeful that, five years after Goodloe-Johnson, we will finally have "systems in place" at SPS JSCEE. Then the cost$ spent downtown can go down and more sent to schools and classrooms.

Reader 47, I think it was too many photographers. I wish they had allowed the person taking the official photo to go first.

Great to see fresh faces and new energy? Best wishes to a group of passionate and committed individuals that are willing to support our students.

S'funny to see this group at Saturday's retreat: at Leslie's suggestion use first names; and then, at every opportunity, call Rick Burke "Woodshop!" It's hard work, may as well have fun doing it.

Blanford seemed to want to talk the whole time, and mansplain the concept of a) ignoring "special interests" and holding to telling the unwashed what's good for 'em; and b) policy policy policy quit micromanaging. The WSSDA trainer (who did a good job of driving discussion) had her job cut out for her.

I thought I could retire from my job of eyerollin' and head-shakin', and for most part I have. Just not when Blanford has the microphone.
