Again this fine city is thrust into the spot light. Again not as a great city but as a location filled with stupidity. A fine place and community celebrating a murderer as a folk hero. Couldn't find one nonwhite person worthy of naming the school after? With ALL the history here? Couldn't name it after he judge who sentenced this murderous thug? Couldn't name it after one of the many men who have recently given their lives in the call to duty for this great country? Of course not. That would make sense.
The incompetent, rewrite history, feel good about "our folk hero" school board again has shown a lack of foresight, knowledge and wisdom. And did the community not just elect the same school board president to city council? Let us only hope he left his lack of character, smartness, and wisdom back at his failure on the school board. But then based on the news today it seems not. It is hard to feel good about a place and its community when its citizens elect fools and he fools push their agenda.
The leadership is a reflection of the community. Small minded.
