Back to school
Tuesday, September 06, 2011 9:09 AM | Updated ( Tuesday, September 13, 2011 9:30 AM )

It doesn’t seem possible, but school is back in session. Where did the summer go?
 Over the past few months, both Forest Park and West Iron school boards, administration and staff have been putting everything they can into place to insure a successful school year for students and staff. Both districts face deep budget cuts. Both have been diligent in finding ways to make those cuts without negatively affecting the quality of education they strive to provide for our county children.

 
A new season

 You can’t stop time. You can’t even slow it down for a while. Time goes on regardless. What can you do?
 You want summer to never end, but it’s ending. This is the week before Labor Day, and many people are taking one last vacation trip before the realities of September and fall set in.

Great fair
To the editor:
 I want to congratulate everyone who worked so hard to make the Iron County Fair a success this year.
 I enjoyed the displays, information, etc., and appreciated all those people who worked so vigorously at the fair.

 
An ode to summer

 Where has summer gone? That’s becoming the sad lament from most of us as we hear the wind rustling through those drying leaves, a definite signal that there’s change in the air.
 Parents are out with kids in tow to fill the list of required items for their particular school-age child. Enough pencils, pens, paper, markers, tissue paper… new shoes, jackets, slacks, tops, socks… lunch pails, bags, hot lunch money, snacks…

No record of termination
To the editor:
 This is a reply to the letter from DICSA Executive Director Jeffrey Heino in the Daily News (Aug. 12) and the Iron County Reporter (Aug. 17).  I refer specifically to his statement, “First, DICSA is not a unit of county or state government.”
