First Day of School

First day of school is always exciting and emotional, especially for all the kindergarteners out there.  And, for that matter, that probably includes high school seniors.  Just wanted to wish all the students, parents and teachers out there all the best for a great school year.  And, wanted to give a quick shout out to Holly Hermansen as well, our county Superintendent of Schools,and thank her for taking time to join me yesterday on my talk show to talk about the upcoming school year.  For those that might not know, she ran in the June election against Paul Haas of our news department, so there is still some tension there that needs to be worked out…but appreciate Holly accepting the invitation to be on the air and look forward to updates throughout the school year.
