  • Remembering Clarence, a Capitol fixture

    New school board is actually more open than the old one
    Editor:
    In response to Greg Romberg’s column of Dec. 25: Maybe Mr. Romberg should investigate the actual facts.

  • New school board gets low marks

    Oops!
    The new majority on the Jefferson County Board of Education made serious errors of both judgment and process in ramming though a contract to hire outside counsel for the board. When dealing with the public’s money and the public’s trust, there are right ways to do things, and there are wrong ways to do things.
