  • Superintendent's evaluation should be open to public

    In a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of the United States, Justice William Brennan wrote this country has “a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on public issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide-open, and that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials.”

To their amazement they found the stone rolled away and were told by an angel that Jesus was alive.
