"I had Ruth Hyatt, the crossing guard that hugs all the kids in the street, cross me when I went to elementary school. I am now 25 years old and to this day she still hugs me every time I see her. She crossed me at the corner of Mulberry and East Washington Street while I walked to Bester Elementary and continued for many many many years after that. She is the most kind and loving woman I have ever met and I hope that my 5-year-old son will have the privilege to be crossed by her. So stop judging her just because she holds you up for a few seconds.

When they do not get their way, they look for funding outside of the County Commissioners. First, they made sure the commissioners fronted the financing costs of the North High stadium. Now, with the general-fund financing for the school for the arts to the tune of an estimated $2.4 million per year for 20 years, the board is thumbing its nose at the taxpayers and especially the County Commissioners.
