Support Shrewsbury override – Alperson

May 20th, 2014

To the Editor: I urge all Shrewsbury voters to support the proposed override.? The town has critical needs, and the resultant tax bills would remain affordable and reasonable.? For example, cuts in police staffing have reduced officer-initiated, deterrent activities, while community complaints and calls for service have risen.? The proposed override should mitigate this by [...]

Solution needed for hallway blockage in schools

May 1st, 2014

To the Editor,

I am writing about my feelings toward hallway traffic in public schools. I believe that we should be taught at an early age that people drive on the right side of the road so we can apply the concept to walking in hallways. Also, I believe that we should be taught to not stop in the middle of the hallway like cars do not stop in the middle of the road for no reason unless there is an emergency or they have to turn. I believe that this would make hallways safer and easier to move around in.
