A young idealist reminds us that every child does matter Elsewhere on this page is a letter from Alaina J. Rowe, the student representative on the board of education, who provides us with a perspective on redistricting that we haven't heard much - that of the students involved. Oh yes, we've heard from parents of those who would be affected by the shifting boundary lines, but with a few exceptions, not much from students themselves. In her letter, Rowe says that what students are interested in is a quality education, and that the biggest factor in how comfortable students are with change is whether they see their parents embrace it fully.

A proposal to add an alternative school-mitigation contribution to the county's Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance moved forward Tuesday, after the Washington County Board of Commissioners came to an informal consensus on draft revisions. The adequate facilities ordinance amendment will establish a standardized formula to determine monetary contributions from developers when additional students are expected to be generated by new development, causing public schools to exceed capacity thresholds, according to Stephen T.

Charles Litton sat on the front porch of his Fairplay house and looked out toward the long lane that led through his crop fields to his rust-colored barn that stood out in stark contrast to the stormy gray sky. “You see that tree?” said Litton, 50, pointing toward a towering maple as the wind rustled the cornstalks, knee-high in mid-June. “It must be almost 30 years old. I remember when we moved in, it was about as big as my arm.” That was 25 years ago, in 1988. Charles Litton had married Donna in February of that year, and the couple settled on the 100-acre farm off Lappans Road, which they rented for two decades before purchasing it in 2008.
