Area students capture state chess titles

Congratulations to all! Both my boys played chess in elementary school and attended many local, state and even national events. It was great experience and they learned so much. Although they gave up their chess board for athletics, chess helped build a strong academic foundation which kept them on the honor roll throughout school. I'm so glad to see these programs in many schools. Keep up the good work!!

City, school district considering lights for Free State High School's tennis courts

Why are we letting a handful of neighbors control the improvements to our school facilities? Why do they have so much power and leverage? I promise you that there are 100 times more people who have opposing views but they are the ones being heard. We are ALL taxpayers and they have no more rights than the rest of us. The music at the ball fields is not blaring at 10:00 at night nor will the lights be shining in your windows after bedtime. Get a grip. Find something else to bitch about. Better yet, come enjoy a high school sporting event and support the youth in our community. Now there's a thought!! And, USD497, quit rolling over and get in the fight. For real!
