As you hopefully know, our community faces an important decision next month regarding the direction we’ll take in Lexington/Richland School District Five.

I encourage everyone to be as informed as possible and, in case you haven’t noticed, everyone has his/her opinion on the issue.

Today, we had several community members have their Letters to the Editor appear in The State.

We’ve also had recent coverage on the blogs (click here for Brad Warthen’s blog).

And of course, information is available to you at two community websites: our school district’s site and another site formed by local members of the community.

Regardless of how you feel, I encourage you to be sure to vote and have your voice heard on this important matter!
