Six months after presentation of a report on Washington County's teen pregnancy crisis, it is distressing to hear that two key agencies are still not on the same page.
We know that William Christoffel, the county's health officer and Edward Masood, the school system's director of arts, health, physical education and athletics, have had their differences in the past.
But this issue is more important than any one person's feelings. The School Board and the County Commissioners need to determine what the problem is and get everyone working together.
Word of continuing differences came Tuesday, when Christoffel made a budget presentation to the commissioners. Commissioner President Greg Snook asked Christoffel what the school system was doing to reduce the number teens giving birth.
