    Since I was on the committee that helped select Jaime Smith as the present band director of LaRue County High School, I feel that it is my duty and obligation to defend him against some of the baseless criticism and false comments that he is receiving from an element in the county that cannot find anything positive or complimentary about our school system and some of its personnel, which includes Smith and the band program.

  • Disappointed in band season

    I feel I must comment on the articles in the paper regarding the band and its new direction. I am a former band member, a former band executive and a former senior parent.
