Public or Charter: The Road to Finding the Right Fit for my Children

Every time I turn around, a new charter school is opening, sending glossy brochures of students – stock photos, but nonetheless appealing, of kids in lab coats, or enjoying algebra. And that’s when a parent may find themselves at the open houses, registering for the new charter school’s lottery, and doing a lot of soul searching about whether or not to abandon their public school.

A Message from Sheriff Scott Israel: Giving a Voice to the Voiceless

Every year, thousands of animal cruelty cases are reported nationwide. These cases can result from either deliberate abuse or merely the failure to take proper care of an animal.
