Finally......a bit of Reason and Actual FACTS!!!!

Although many of the posts on the TU blog simply regurgitate the "talking points" presented by the advocates of closing "AN" elementary school (read "Clarksville" since day 1) there is finally a breath of fresh air.
Finally, the presentation of actual "facts".
While it's unlikely that the mere presentation of actual "facts" will get in the way of the ideologues willingness to accept (and repeat) the "spin" offered without documentation, backup, or anything more than political expediency for justification, we can at least hope the BOA members have actually maintained the "open minds" they profess to.

Letters to the Editor

A number of thinking, caring, dedicated "folks" have submitted letters to the Board of Education and/or various local publications in an attempt to get out the truth about the travesty currently being considered.
"THANK YOU" one and all and thank you as well for submitting them here for posting.
We invite any and all to follow in their footsteps.

The Written Word

There have been many letters published in support of the Clarksville Elementary School over these last weeks. It was requested that to the extent possible these words be made available.

As I obtain permissions and get final copies of Letters to the Editor as well as letters that were sent directly to the Board of Education I will publish the links here for viewing. So check back as I hope new links will continue to be added for a while.
