I prefer a voice with a little character when listening to country/folk. This is not to say I don't like someone with a nice, smooth voice. My favorite singer/songwriters (John Prine, Guy Clark, Bob Dylan) have what are classified as shitty vocals....

So Taylor doesn't approve of an idea that he hinted at a couple years ago? So what is it? We can't possibly have a successful district that might be more than half white, but they bitch and moan that the system is failing because of white flight. So what's the deal??? They want to prevent people ...

This idea was certainly floated a couple years ago when the new superintendent took over but didn't get much traction. I think in light of everything going on with SG that this will get some serious thought now. I'm all for it. I would just hope that the individual sub-districts would have the au...

It would make sense to have your entire campus located in one municipality for tax purposes, police protection, fire protection, etc. Celtic studios is trying to do the same thing because part of their property is outside the city limits. They stated that depending on the part of the property they...

I think if EBR schools just switched to traditional neighborhood schools, the problem would start to fix itself.
