In 2007, the search for a superintendent for the Rushford-Peterson School district was a difficult one.  It was tough to find a candidate who embodied the ideals for our small district.  However, when I met Superintendent Ehler, it was apparent that he was a diamond in the rough. 

  • When my son was in the sixth grade, his teacher had a big banner strung across his wall that said: Whatever is right is not always popular and whatever is popular is not always right. Those words have stuck in mind for 15 years now and are something I am thinking about again with the Peterson sidewalk issue.

  • The Community of Rushford-Peterson has been blessed with a Superintendent and a recent School Board who have made decisions based on what is best for the children and our community.  First, I’d like to commend them for not succumbing to the fear and intimidation techniques put forth by some RP citizens opposing the new school efforts.  
  • Congratulations to the committee and to all who voted “yes” for the long-term future of our school for our children, grandchildren and future generations. 
  • On a recent Monday night in Brooklyn, five empty chairs stood on stage — one for each member of the Federal Communications Commission. A crowd had amassed in the room for a public hearing to send this message to the agency: Dont hurt the open Internet.

     
  • My brother would have turned 29 the other day. Thus begins the season of difficult anniversaries. 
  • The soldiers who fought the Revolutionary War were our first veterans, the only cohort of U.S. warriors who took up arms to create rather than defend a country.

     
  • After reading the article written by Andrew Wolter in the Oct. 23 paper, I am wondering first if this is supposed to be an accurate account of what goes on at the R-P School Board meeting or is it an editorial? 
  • This letter is in regards to the lighting project on Mill Street in the City of Peterson.  
  • I served on the 2013 R-P Future Facilities Committee. I went to those first meetings determined to find a way to remodel what we have rather than build new.  
  • With the upcoming vote, emotions are running high in the Rushford-Peterson School District. We must not lose focus or forget what this decision is truly about—the children.  
  • Over the last few months I have heard many options for the facility needs of the R-P Schools.  There are pros and cons to all the options, but one option not mentioned is building a one room school every 6 miles throughout the district. 
  • Why do kids need a new school?  Answer, they don’t! 
  • Combined, my husband and I taught in the Rushford and R-P School district for 70 years...in all the school buildings.
