The responsibilities of serving on a school board

We usually discuss issues occurring within the district. However, for this month’s column, we decided to take a different approach and shed some light on our roles as trustees and the process of decision-making. What is it like to take on a publicly elected...

Taking pride in our fairgrounds

Jimmy Dutra
