A public hearing was scheduled for March 29 to hear thoughts and opinions of local residents about what skills and qualities the next school leader should have. But no one attended the meeting.

For Lakeview students, shop class is more than building gun racks

Say the words “shop class” and certain images come to mind, not all of them flattering — kids gluing inexpertly-cut bits of wood together to form end tables of questionable stability or uninspired students counting the minutes until the 3 p.m. bell.
