When all this is settled the one thing that will always stick out is the absolute pathetic way Yoeman conducted himself. Why? He has shown his true colors - very immature and condesending.This is what will be remembered long after the snow melts. There will never be any more money voted for the schools as long as he is still here. He won't be able to blame that on the media.

Good points, good to hear someone speaking some common sense. However, religion in the gift room is only part of the issue here. The inconsistencies among the elementary schools is not helping your case. Some folks have very strong feelings and just want to be heard in a caring and compassionate way. They can't be brushed off and I don't blame them for bringing it out. Many people are supportive and the media loves that. In my opinion the administration could have deflected all of the media attention. Watch the videos on youtube and you will see just how well our town presented themselves. Too bad because all it needed was someone capable of managing people a little better together with some training in crisis communication. This could have been kept within the school system for resolution. Nobody took it seriously until the media was on it and sometimes that's the only way some people feel they can be heard.

I found out something rather interesting yesterday.....Jane Gilmore is a former nun. She obviously has some leftover aggression against religious holidays.

All of this shouting and behind the keyboard chest thumping, yet have you ever applied for a position with the school committee or any other town board? You tell others to divulge their real names yet you remain anonymous. Were you a board member? You seem to be quite defense.
