Pulaski school race on

Posted By on Mon, Jul 19, 2010 at 10:43 AM

Dawn Jackson, the Pulaski School District blogger who's a font of information about the Pulaski School Board's ongoing dispute with the teachers union and reports now and then on questionable acts by certain School Board members, reports that there will be a contest for the District 4 seat on the board, held by anti-union board member Charlie Wood. Wood has indicated he probably will seek re-election.

Jackson reports that Gloria Lawrence, who retired this year after 23 years of teaching at Sylvan Hills Middle School, will seek the board seat. Her three children attended Pulaski schools (she's lived in Sherwood 25 years) and her three grandchildren are currently enrolled. Jackson writes that Lawrence will "bring much-needed fair-mindedness to work for the PCSSD."

UPDATE: Jackson says a Jacksonville candidate filed today, too, for the District 5 seat held by another union foe, Danny Gilliland.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
