Stoughton Area School District

Parents upset with

end of elementary
orchestra program
Low interest, finances cited as
reasons for cuts to strings classes
Scott De Laruelle
Unified Newspaper Group

The success of the four-year, $20 million

referendum in April might have spared the
Stoughton School District some deep, painful cuts, but it doesnt mean some programs
wont end up on the chopping block.
That became clear last month, as district
officials sent a letter to parents of third- and
fourth-graders, notifying them of the phasing
out of elementary school orchestra programs
during the next two school years. Starting this
fall, orchestra will only be offered to fifthgraders who participated last year. Those students will receive instruction twice a week,
including an after-school session at River

OWI decreases
Stoughton saw fewer
arrests for OWI for the
third straight year. In
2013, the department had
79 OWI incidents, compared with 114 in 2012
and 127 in 2011. The
majority of cases were
Of the 79 arrests for
OWI, 10 were for drug
related offenses: five for
marijuana, three prescription medication and one
each for heroin and hallucinogens, according to
the report.
First-time offenders
accounted for the bulk
of the cases: 54 were
logged in 2013 for firstoffense OWI. That number is down from about
75 the year before. Repeat
offenders stayed relatively
similar, though second
offense cases dropped
from 21 to 11 last year.
Only three felony OWIs
were logged last year. In
most cases, thats a persons fifth OWI or beyond
(or fourth within a fiveyear period). In 2012 and
2011, seven felony OWI
cases each year were
The average blood-alcohol concentration for each
tested subject stayed the
same as in 2012 at 0.15
percent - nearly twice the
legal limit.
Efforts to reduce OWIs
will continue in the city.
The department participated in the Capital Area
OWI Task Force (a highvisibility patrol with a
dozen or more cars police
cars on a single night) and
has plans for two OWI
enforcement programs in

Despite the continued
reduction in OWI offenses, other crime categories
increased in 2013.

Stoughton Hospital is
asking the city to close part
of Ridge Street in order
to reconfigure its parking
lot so it can provide better
access to its building.
Several public hearings
related to the request are
slated for Monday, July
14, at the citys Planning
Commission meeting. The
multi-step process requires
a few separate approvals
from both the commission
and the Common Council.
According to documents
filed with the city, the hospital would like to close
roughly 400 feet of Ridge

heroin overdose death on July

The request area borders
the existing hospital parking lot near the building.
By closing the street to
the public, the hospital
would be able to reconfigure its parking lot and add
11 stalls for a total of 95.
The new lot would reduce
pavement surface by about
1,600 square feet.
The hospital also plans
to expand its Church Street
parking lot. This project
would add 48 stalls for a
total of 87.
City documents indicate
neighbors have shown tentative support for the project and have asked the hospital and city to provide adequate signage to keep traffic

Heroin overdose leads to arrest of alleged dealer

according to the news release.
Sheriffs deputies found
clear evidence of heroin use
in the home, police said, and
learned that Knipfer was
likely responsible for supplying the heroin that caused the

death of the 25-year-old.

Investigators are awaiting
the medical examiners report
and toxicology results to determine additional charges.
Knipfer is being held in the
Dane County Jail.

Stoughton police fielded several thousand more

calls for service this year,
but major crime categories
saw reductions in 2013.
Police recorded a drop
in OWIs, drug offenses
and thefts, while disorderly conduct calls, 911 calls
and domestic disturbances
saw an increase, according
to the departments annual
crime statistics.
In 2013, the department
handled 29,814 incidents.
Thats a nearly 28 percent
increase from 2011.
The total number
includes 911 calls, as well
as public services like
unlocking cars and lowcost fingerprinting. Certain categories of crime
have ebbs and flows, but
the overall trend shows
that police are getting
more calls for service.
Despite the overall
increase, however, many
major crimes decreased.

(Former) staff editorial

Inspiration had a hand

in moving to Japan

our years.
Thats how long Ive
spent deeply caring about
the four communities Unified
Newspaper Group serves.
Last week marked the end of
my job as page designer and
community reporter at UNG.
Like any relationship, while
weve had our ups and downs,
its hard to say
goodbye. But
unlike most
Im letting
go of not one
but rather hundreds of them
through all
of the inspiring people Ive
interviewed and worked closely
with throughout the years.
Getting to know the people in
Verona, Stoughton, Fitchburg,
Oregon and their surrounding
communities is truly what has
made this job memorable and
enjoyable. Of course, Im also
going to miss the incredibly
hard-working, close-knit and
often quirky and fun group of
co-workers at UNG.
But before I talk about my
new life path, theres something
Ive found to be an intensely
narrow experience reporters go
through that I want to point out.
Its the opportunity to, within
minutes of meeting someone,
ask them to tell you about the
most intimate details of their
life. Some of the time, people
are sharing accounts they may
never have had the opportunity
to tell anyone before, and its
not an experience Ive taken
We Midwesterners grow up
with this inherent sense of crippling modesty, and through this
job Ive often had to convince
people their story is worth telling. Ive learned that sharing
doesnt have to be bragging.
And each time an individual

chooses to share what are often

deeply sensitive accounts, they
inspire someone else who may
be going through the same thing,
letting them know that its OK
to be open. I want to say thank
you to those who have had the
courage to share both triumphs
and struggles.
Being a journalist has continually pushed me outside of my
comfort zone. Ive interviewed
cancer patients, people whose
families have lived through horrific child abuse cases and even
one woman who was dying.
There have been times the
experience was so visceral, Ive
left interviews and sat in my car
and just cried. But the beautiful thing about journalism is
it always keeps you guessing
whats next, and there have certainly been tears of joy that have
come out of this job, too.
Ive spent years attempting to
tell other peoples stories that I
hope have, in some small way,
humanized issues not many of
us have personally experienced.
I cant shake the idea that community journalists do something
I consider one of the most sacred
honors connecting people.
I think community newspapers remain a relevant form of
news in such an unstable time
for media because they remind
us that we do share a connection
with the strangers we may see
every day. And through these
stories, we find out who the
heck these people are who help
us pump our gas, or serve us our
food or even figure out whats
up with that weird guy who has
the 50 lawn gnomes in his front
The more we learn about one
another, we realize not how different we are, but how we are
unified through similar struggles
and strengths. Its too easy to
say, That could never be me.
There are always a million
reasons not to do something. But
I have gotten to invite people

to start thinking, Why not me?

If this person can start their
own nonprofit, or can travel the
world, why cant I?
These stories, though they
might not always be the most
hard-hitting of news, spark communication and empathy in a
country where individualism is
so celebrated, yet we are conditioned to feel that as just an
individual, we cant really make
a difference.
Whats been concretely illustrated to me over and over is
that I that we can make a
difference by simply changing
ourselves. And that is why Ive
left a career I so enjoy: to make
a change that three or four years
ago, I never believed for a second I could.
I am moving to Japan to
become an assistant English
teacher at a high school.
Most people tell me thats crazy; and three years ago, I would
have agreed. But now, after
meeting all of these inspiring
and seemingly regular people
people like me who have lived
in Wisconsin all their lives,
whose parents are good, hardworking Midwesterners that
has lit a fire and helped inspire
me to move on to my next life
And although I will be temporarily leaving so many wonderful and supportive friends and
family and an amazing boyfriend, I cant help but think that
the only thing crazier than moving halfway around the world is
letting the fear of the unknown
stop me from doing something I
want to do.
Victoria Vlisides, 27, was an
employee with Unified Newspaper Group from April 2010 to
July 2014. She left her post as
community reporter to pursue
a teaching job in Chiba Prefecture, Japan, where she will be
moving in August.

the cornhole games.

Kubb on the rise

While cornhole - also
known as bags - is a summertime staple for barbecues
and tailgates, kubb is starting
to gain popularity. The game
has Scandinavian origins and
is sometimes called Viking
Chess, so its entirely appropriate that Stoughton would
use the game to promote its
own Norwegian heritage.
Back in the day, I guess,
they played with skulls and
bones instead of blocks of
wood, Fossum said, referring to the games Viking
Nowadays, blocks of
wood and wooden dowels
are used to play on a roughly
15-by-24-square-foot field.
Two teams consisting of
two to six players go back
and forth, throwing wooden
dowels at kubb blocks of the
opposing team. Players try to
knock down all the blocks on
their opponents side before
taking aim at the king kubb
in the middle of the field of
Game play will be done
according to the U.S. National Kubb Championship rules
available at
And while the tournament
aims to draw people from all
over, theres no skill requirement for this tournament.
Most kubb players are competitive but eager to share
tips about how to play their
game, Fossum said.
I played my first tournament in Madison in May and
everyone was sharing tips

What is Kubb?
Kubb (rhymes with tube) is a lawn game
where the object is to knock over wooden blocks
by throwing wooden batons at them. Due to the
strategy involved, the games nickname is Viking
on how to play the game,
Fossum said. The kubb
community is very outgoing. Theyre trying to spread
the word about the game to
Chamber director Erica
Dial said organizers are hoping to have at least 16 teams
for the kubb tournament. The
morning will feature round
robin play with playoffs slated for just after 1 p.m.

Cornhole growing, too

Stoughton is no stranger
to cornhole, and organizers
are hoping 40 teams show
up for games during Corn-OKubbia.
While the name of the
game is hotly debated by
some, the object of the game
is the same: toss bags at your
opposing teams target and
try to be the first to score 21
Cornhole at Corn-OKubbia will follow the rules
of the American Cornhole
Association, according to a
sign-up sheet for the event.
Our cornhole tournament is
ACA-sanctioned and scoring
will be reported.
Teams of two players will
toss corn-filled canvas bags
that are 6-by-6 inches in size
at wooden targets that are
2-by-4-feet. The targets have

a round hole that counts for

three points, while simply
landing a bag on the target is
one point.
To read the rules of the
ACA, please go to:
Round robin play for cornhole will start at 10 a.m. with
a 16-team playoff set for 2
Organizers said families
and friends are welcome
to watch games and try out
some demonstration sets for
both kubb and cornhole. The
skate park, Troll Beach and
other facilities in the park
will all be available, as well.
There will be food, refreshments and beer for sale on
the grounds. Carry-in alcohol
is not permitted.
Early registration is
encouraged, but some dayoff registration will be
offered. Registration is $40

Should Wisconsin
increase the minimum
wage to $10.10 an hour?
Thats a question Dane
County voters will get to
decide on in November
after the Dane County
Board of Supervisors last
week approved adding
it to the fall ballot. The
resolution reads, in part,
We can not expect Dane
County, Wisconsin, or
the nation to thrive and
recover from the current
economic downturn if
people working full time
jobs do not earn enough
money to surviveto feed
and house themselves, let
alone their children and
Supervisor Carousel
Bayrd, the lead sponsor
of the resolution, said the
county is joining dozens
of other communities
across the state in an effort
to raise the minimum
wage from $7.25 per hour.
According to the resolution text, if the minimum
wage had kept pace with
inflation since 1968, it
would now be nearly $11
per hour.

Wisconsinites who
work a full days work
deserve enough money to
support themselves and
their families, she said.
Under the current minimum wage, it is impossible for full time Dane
County workers to feed
and house themselves.
We should be ashamed of
that. I am confident that
Dane County voters, and
voters across Wisconsin,
will support an increase
in the minimum wage, to
give all working families
and chance to survive and
thrive in Wisconsin.
Dane County Board
chair Sharon Corrigan
said raising the minimum
wage will lift thousands
of Wisconsinites out of
poverty and reduce reliance on government programs.
This referendum essentially asks Dane County
voters if they want to stop
subsidizing businesses
who pay their workers so
little that those workers
must rely on government
assistance to survive, she
Dane County Clerk
Scott McDonell said the
referendum is not likely
to increase the cost of

Writing can help us deal with many of lifes

problems. Many teenagers have weathered
the storm and stress of those turbulent
years by keeping a journal, and that same
practice can help virtually anyone who can
express him or herself in writing. Writing
about our fears and anxieties has a way of
making them a little less scary and often
gives us insight into how to resolve the situation. It can also be helpful to write about
our lives in a way that essentially rewrites
the story. Someone who is feeling a lack
of courage might write about themselves
displaying courage. We all have stories
to tell, and in thinking about our lives we
have a tendency to place our lives into an
overarching narrative. That is, we tell ourselves a particular story that makes sense
of our life. The story we tell as a teenager
is likely to be very different from the one
we tell in our twenties or thirties, and there
is obviously some wisdom to periodically
updating our story. What is the story that
you currently tell about your life, and how
would you like to see it changed? As we get
older, and especially as we approach our
golden years, we should think more about
whether our story really does fit the life
we have lived, and the story that we hope
our life will someday tell. We should also
remember that the final version cant be
written until our life is complete.

Located at 100 E. Main

St. in a building that has
been home to pharmacies
for more than 120 years,
McGlynn Pharmacy is
Stoughtons only locally-owned business for
prescription needs and
At this historic location in the heart of
Stoughton, the pharmacy
has had five independent
owners, beginning with
A.F. Scheldrup, who ran
it from 1890-1915. It
has been owned by Dan
Dan McGlynn
McGlynn since 2002,
and is now operated
under the name McGlynn Pharmacy.
The pharmacy emits a hometown feel with a friendly staff ready to assist customers. Plus, McGlynn
offers an array of products and services not necessarily found at a big box pharmacy. In addition to prescription services, diabetic shoes, Pride lift chairs,
and medication box filling are just a few benefits of
shopping at 100 E Main Street. The staff will fill a
med box with the patients regular medications. This
takes the tedious and sometimes confusing task out of
the customers hands. Qualified diabetic patients can
even have the specially designed shoes & inserts covered by Medicare. Speaking of Medicare, McGlynn
Pharmacy has a full-time Billing Manager on staff.
Vickie helps troubleshoot non-covered prescriptions
and has valued experience working with insurances
to help patients get the meds they need in a timely
fashion. AND McGlynn Pharmacy offers FREE
delivery within the city limits!
We strive to provide the type of service that customers seek out, therefore my hope and goal is that
community members come to us because we provide
quality care and service, McGlynn said, Not just
because we are a community business. I feel we need
to earn customers trust and hopefully, their business.
One of the biggest challenges facing pharmacies,
including his own, is insurance reimbursement and
Medicare, McGlynn said. Medicare changes have
been challenging. Some Medicare plans have forced
business away from the local pharmacy. McGlynn
reiterated, It is never good when there are people
who dont interact with your business making decisions that can affect you greatly.
While there has been challenges in owning his own
business, Dan McGlynn stressed the benefits far out- McGlynn Pharmacy, 100 E. Main St., is located in a historic site which housed four other pharmacies before it, dating back to 1890.

this community has meant a lot to my family and

me, he said. My favorite thing is the number of
great people I have met. Having a store downtown
has afforded me the possibility to build relationships
with many people throughout the community.
I thoroughly enjoy our customers, McGlynn continued. I started working at this location 22 years
ago and have embraced the opportunity to watch the
community and the people grow.
Stoughton is unique because of the great relationships we have with our customers and fellow downtown retailers, McGlynn added. We strive to offer
personalized service to each of our customers.
McGlynn said it is important for the members of
a community to support locally-owned businesses
because the money they spend stays in the town they
live in.
As a local business owner, I try very hard to contribute to a variety of fund-raisers and non-profit
organizations, said McGlynn.My wife, Cindy and I,
moved to Stoughton, and fell in love with the town.
We decided it was a great place to live and raise a
family he said.
Thats why its difficult for him to pick a favorite
thing about Stoughton.
There are so many things I love about Stoughton.
But I especially love our natural resources such as
Lake Kegonsa, the Yahara River and our great park
system, he said. Its a nice place to raise a family.
Are there any changes or additions in store for
the pharmacy? We are very involved in the clinical side of pharmacy as well as the dispersing side.
McGlynn stated. McGlynn
Pharmacy is evolving to a
more care-centered model,
where we are increasing our
focus on clinical pharmacy
in addition to the pour and
count traditional pharmacy. McGlynn explains that
the pharmacy is accredited
by the Wisconsin Pharmacy Quality Collaborative
(WPQC). This accreditation is given to pharmacies
that meet certain requirements with regard to patient
care. McGlynn Pharmacy
has also started a MedSync
program that is focused on
patient adherence to their
medications. The program is
designed to ensure patients
take their medications regularly, reducing patient trips
to the doctor and/or hospital. We also offer CMR

(Comprehensive Medication Review) which is an

opportunity for patients to sit down with a pharmacist and discuss their medications, and get recommendations regarding their medical care, McGlynn
added. The pharmacy also works collaboratively with
a patients physician to identify any issues with their
medication profile and helps to ensure that patients
receive high quality medical care.
McGlynn said during his 20 plus years in Stoughton, many things have changed, but one thing has
remained: Stoughton is a city with a very tight community feel, McGlynn stressed. I have loved my
years here, and look forward to many more.

Walking away victorious

Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

Short on arms, the Stoughton

Home Talent gutted out a pair of onerun victories over the Fourth of July
With ace Jeremy Dunnihoo and
Rory Menzer out of town over the
weekend, the Merchants found a way
to claw back against Southeast Section rivals Evansville and Albion.

Stoughton 6, Albion 5
Good teams find a way to win
ugly. That was the sentiment most
everyone expressed following the
Merchants 6-5 comeback victory
last Sunday. As heated rivalry game
as youre likely to find in the section,
Stoughton drew four walks to seal
the fate of the visiting Albion Tigers.
Simon Maurice drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth
inning to give Stoughton a 6-5 win
over Albion on Sunday.
The win, the Merchants second
head-to-head against the Tigers, also
gave Stoughton a two-game lead
over Albion. Stoughton remained a
game ahead of second place Utica
with the victory.
Its obviously not as exciting as
getting hit, but its a win, Maurice
said. Im happy with it. Winning
today was huge
Winning pitcher Kris Rosholt
drew a one-out walk in the ninth
before T.J. DiPrizio walked and both
runners advanced on a wild pitch.
Fuller followed with a third walk to
load the bases before Albion reliever
Kris Agnew was pulled in favor of
veteran Mike Nanstad, who walked
in Maurice.
Its a double up weekend for
everybody, Merchants manager
Dale Seffens said. Were all kind
of light on pitching by this point. We
just knew if we could hang around,
wed eventually get some runners on
and it paid off.
Lead-off hitter Ben Gerber (3-for5) and Maurice (3-for-4) each had
three hits. Max Fuller added two doubles and Rosholt scored three runs
to lead the Merchants (11-1) offensively.
Eric Skip Gerber got the start
and threw six innings, scattering six
hits and allowing three earned runs.
He walked four and struck out two.
It was huge for us to take this
two games without Jeremy on the
mound, Seffens said. Albion is a
very good team. You cant take them
Going into this game a little light
on pitching Skip did a nice job.
Hes been gone for a couple weeks
and hadnt played a whole lot until
Friday night. He did a nice job keeping us in the ball game.
While Seffens said PJ Rosowski
will be a nice addition to the lineup,
the recent SHS grad looked a little

shaky in his HTL debut. Rosowski

tossed three innings, allowing one
hit, while walking two and striking
out a pair.
Rosholt picked up the win, striking out one and walking one in one
inning of relief.
Josh Eastman got the start for the
Tigers, tossing 7 2/3 innings while
allowing five earned runs. Eastman
scattered nine hits and walked four.
He struck out four. Agnew tossed
one inning of relief, giving up one
runs on two hits.
Albion made several highlight reel
grabs to hold onto the lead up until
the ninth inning.
Watching Stoughton fight back to
within in a run through five innings,
the visiting Tigers pushed their lead
back to three runs thanks to three
walks, two wild pitches and a passed
ball in the sixth.
Maurice and Ben Gerber singled to
lead off the seventh only to be stranded. The Merchants drew even with
three runs in the eighth, however.
Following a lead-off walk to
Rosholt, the Tigers got Dave Hanson

and DiPrizio to fly out and line out,

A two-out walk to Fuller and an
RBI single to Maurice got things rolling for Stoughton.
Albion, which pulled starter Josh
Eastman in favor of Kris Agnew at
that point, was unable to slow the
Michael and Eric Gerber singled
home the game-tying runs.
The Tigers drew a one-out walk in
the ninth, but never threatened.
Despite ultimately losing the
game, Albion struck first playing
station-to-station baseball in the first
inning. Aaron Laskowski led things
off with a single to left field. He was
then bunted into scoring position on
Jim Eastmans sacrifice.
Adam Gregory followed with
an infield single in the hole at short
before Josh Eastmans sacrifice fly to
center plated the games first run.
The Tigers left three more runners
on base over the next three innings
before two hits and two Merchant
errors helped Albion push its lead to
3-0 in the fifth inning.

Stoughton appeared to take the

lead in the fourth inning when the
eldest Gerber brother Sean appeared
to hit a two-run home run following a
lead-off walk to Eric Gerber.
A towering shot hooking toward
the right-field foul pole, the home
plate umpire called the ball foul. Sean
went on to strike out, one of four for
the game, before Jake Wenzel hit into
an inning-ending double play.
I think people were obviously
upset about it, Maurice said. A
lot of people thought it was fair, but
youve got to move on. I think we did
a good job bouncing back from that.
The Merchants final broke through
with a pair of runs in the fifth innings
following a lead-off double by
Rosholt to the right-center field gap.
Bobbling the ball in right field, Cam
Wileman allowed Rosholt to take
third before DiPrizio knocked in
Stoughtons first run with a sac fly to
Fuller followed with a double
before Maurice reached base on
an error. Lead-off hitter Ben Gerber singled past second base to pull

Stoughton within a run, 3-2.

The Merchants host last place

Stoughton 7, Evansville 6
Stoughtons DiPrizio and Maurice
each hit two-run singles in a fourrun eighth inning Friday evening in
Evansville during the teams annual
Fourth of July tilt.
Up 3-0 after the second inning,
the late inning helped the Merchants
bounce back after blowing an early
lead to hold on for a 7-6 victory over
We kind of farted around on
defense and gave them a couple of
runs, Seffens said.
Stoughton continued to hit the ball
right at the Jays defense until the
eighth inning when they scored four
crucial runs. Needing Erick Sperloen
to go the distance, the Merchants
allowed three runs in the ninth, but
held on by the skin of their teeth.

Orchestra: Cuts to string program irk parents

Bluff Middle School.
The matter will be taken
up as a discussion item at
the school boards next
meeting, slated for 7 p.m.
Monday, July 14.
District superintendent
Tim Onsager, in a letter to
a concerned parent, said
that fifth-grade orchestra will also be phased out
after the 2014-15 school
year, citing several reasons. He said in the past,
elementary school stu dents were pulled out of
core classes like math
and reading to create time
for orchestra instruction,
which frustrated teachers
who had to repeat lessons.
It also meant that our
struggling students were
not receiving the help they
needed in key subjects,
Onsager wrote.
When the orchestra
instructor left, district officials found it very difficult to hire a qualified
replacement because the
job was only part-time and
without benefits.
Student enrollment
did not support a full-time
strings teacher, he wrote.
In 2012, the district starting using music teachers
from other buildings to
teach elementary orchestra
after school, which created
a growing strain on staff,
Onsager wrote.
(They) told us loud and
clear that they could not
keep doing this schedule and

that a change was needed,

he wrote. We decided that
it was in the best interest
of the music program as a
whole to begin phasing out
elementary orchestra and to
focus on middle level and
high school orchestra.
Onsager said its difficult
to justify the creation of a
new full-time position to
meet a part-time need.
That is not a reflection
on the merits of the program
but the realities that we
face with declining enrollment, he wrote. Many
other school districts in
Dane County confront the
same reality, which is why
many area schools have
been phasing out elementary
string programs.

Parents dismayed
The parents of several
elementary school students
sent the Courier-Hub copies of letters mailed earlier
this month to the district.
Stephanie Baughn, whose
child will be in fourth grade
this fall, wrote that she was
shocked to hear of the loss
of the program.
(He) has been counting
down the years until he is
eligible for orchestra, she
wrote. I am frustrated that I
am in the position of having
to communicate to him that
this is no longer an option
for him.
Baughn wrote that the
district was going back on
their word, despite the success of the referendum.
We talked to our children

about the referendum in
question and how, if Stoughton voted no, we would lose
(talented and gifted) and
orchestra, she wrote. It is
disappointing that my children will have to learn, at
such a young age, that government and our school district is capable of wooing
us with their promises and
then, when the votes are in
the bag and the district gets
what they want, they can
simply renege.
Leslie Milton called the
timing of the notification, a
few weeks after the end of
school, underhanded, and
said the loss of the programs
is exactly the wrong direction the district should take
if it wants to attract new
Music and musical
knowledge make for much
stronger and well-rounded students, she wrote.
Delaying the ability to participate in orchestra makes
learning an instrument even
more difficult.
Sean Weitner wrote that
the referendum success gave
district officials budget
authority to deliver on your
promises, including paying for a full-time music
I dont see how the
referendums success
could leave you feeling
anything but empowered
to achieve what the referendum set out to achieve,
which is to preserve
Stoughtons distinctiveness
as a competitive school
district, he wrote. Elementary orchestra may be a
very small part of that, but
its very indicative of attitude is this a district at
full sail, or one thats bailing water?
