Unit 1 discusses football co-op, participation
Despite not being on the agenda Monday, a good portion of Hutsonville Unit 1 school board meeting was spent discussing the condition of the high-school football program it shares with Palestine Unit 3.

Superintendent Julie Kraemer told board members discussions of a co-op in football with Oblong Unit 4 have restarted after Oblong representatives offered an invitation by mail recently to both Palestine and Hutsonville.

Veteran's Day is about honoring those men and women who heard the musket fire and bugle call, and were fortunate enough to return home. This year marks the 50th anniversary of heroism a 21-year-old soldier demonstrated while serving in Vietnam which earned him America's most prestigious medal.

Unit 2 board reviews health/life safety survey
The latest round of health/life safety projects may cost Robinson Unit 2 schools a lot less than 10 years ago.

The preliminary results of the state-mandated 10-year Health/Life Safety Survey were discussed during Monday's Unit 2 school board meeting. Based on architect's estimates, Robinson school may need more than $2.8 million in Life Safety repairs and renovations during the next decade. That is down from $6.5 to $7 million in the 2007 survey.

2014 merger study should have been 'discarded'

The article, "Unit 1, 3 residents have their say on consolidation" (Oct. 24 Daily News), gave incorrect information on what I said. It is true that I was on the Committee of Ten in 2002. However, the information I used was from the more recent feasibility study, the one presented in 2014, when I was a member of the Palestine Unit 3 Board of Education.
