Letter to the editor: ACSD must keep its small schools

Posted on May 6, 2019 |
By Erin Robinson



To all concerned in response to Angelo Lynn’s April 25 editorial:

The conversations I’m having to have surrounding the potential closure of one or more of ACSD’s elementary schools is maddening, quite frankly. Have we honestly become a society that is solely focused on dollar signs that we are willing to sacrifice our children’s educational experience?!

Editorial: Green Up Day: 'Those things you do to support the whole'

Posted on May 2, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



This weekend, or any day this week or next, grab a Green Up bag and pick up a little trash near where you live. It will make you feel connected — a small part of a larger whole.

And if you do, even if it’s just for an hour up and down your street for a block or so, you’ll be part of the state’s largest all-volunteer one-day event in which everyone does a little bit for a whole lot of good.

By Joanna Colwell



Colwell, Joanna ONLINE.jpg

My friend Andre Henry has a boulder in the back of his car. It’s a large, heavy rock, painted white. It is covered with black writing, words like “police violence, racial profiling, white fragility, and eurocentrism.” It is also covered with hashtags. Lots and lots of hashtags, each one followed by a name. Each name is the name of a Black person killed by police.

Greg Dennis: More music for a desert island

Posted on May 2, 2019 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

Here’s Part 2 of the Desert Island Disc Challenge. It’s drawn from the key question in a long-running BBC Radio show: If you were to be indefinitely stranded on a desert island, what eight pieces of music would you take with you?

Part 1, in a previous column, covered the first four of those eight albums. It required this second treatise because it’s hard to be concise when it comes to music.

Those first four albums were:

Poet's Corner: This luxury is steeped in mystery

Posted on May 2, 2019 |
By Susan Jefts



Jefts poet corner.jpg

A letter arrived from Wales and I

never opened it. That was my one

luxury, before the cherry blossoms opened

 

in the park. It was the spring I had

a broken heart and a neighbor who played

Greensleeves every night on her violin.

 

I dyed my hair blue, then bluer. I think

of Wales as a country of sailors and shepherds.

My ancestors came from there, long ago, and once

 

I visited: a castle on the edge of the Irish Sea.

Letter to the editor: Family thankful to first responders

Posted on May 2, 2019 |
By Neil and Terri Metcalf and Raymond and Jarod Bushey



On Feb. 27 our family lost our home from a house fire.
