If you have not yet, please take a close look at page B5 as you read your newspaper this week. You will see that the award-winning children’s educational series -written from the perspective of some special four legged friends – is back. Lots of students and their families tell us they have enjoyed these stories in past years. So, we have “gone to the dogs” again for a fresh new 10-week series.

Why do this? After all, when I came here as publisher 8 years ago, I was told point blank, “You can’t get support in this community for an education page.”

We fought the battle to make public education newsworthy because, I can’t think of anything more important to our city, county and region. Having smart, educated young people capable of dealing with our rapidly changing, complex, high tech world produces hope, pride and economic prosperity.  The alternative is perpetual poverty and hopelessness.
