The legislative priorities that follow were approved unanimously at Monday’s Henderson City Council meeting.
Christmas break is upon us at last. Although I enjoy the time off, I sometimes fear the students will forget half of what we taught them over the holiday. That fear is multiplied many times over during summer recess. Express your thoughts on this or any other topic on today’s open line.
