There can be no doubt that we live in acrimonious, divided, and difficult times. However, when it comes to our communities, our neighbors and our children – I believe that people can still let our “better angels” guide us and come together for the common good.

This site is intended to create a place for a civil and respectful conversation about real and important issues facing our community, our schools, and our children.

By no means does this imply we should not raise the real issues and address them honestly and directly. Rather, it means that we can do so and keep our human dignity in the process.

Comments and dialogue that meet these guidelines are welcome and encouraged. Personal and character attacks, or statements that are obscene, will never see the light of day.

More directly, we can be tough on issues – and gentle on people. And keep it clean.
