Citizen Quote of the Day
"Our community has engaged in months of discourse with the Fayetteville School Board concerning the future of Fayetteville High School. This process was tiring, stressful and mostly futile. Now comes this paper’s July 16 editorial chiding the citizenry for not attending the board’s roundtable discussion at Woodland Junior High and implying either public indifference or else approval of the board’s decisions. How wrong! I, for one, am alarmed over the board’s decision to sell the existing school. Just thinking about it makes me want to talk to the walls, or even bang my head against one. But it’s not worth driving over to Woodland to do so."
--Patty Besom, "Discourse Not Worth the Effort," Letter to the Editor of the Northwest Arkansas Times.
