Lincoln news for Sept. 26
LINCOLN — Let’s talk! Our school district is facing a number of challenges such as declining student enrollment and aging facilities. A group of community volunteers and school board members are holding a series of interactive, professionally facilitated conversations in each of the 5-town communities.
