Letter to the Editor: Arts add value to education
I recently read an article titled “Nobel Medicine Winner Says: ‘I Owe it All to My Bassoon Teacher’” (Lebrecht). The title caught my attention, as it wasn’t that many years ago when I had the challenge of finding a professional bassoon musician to mentor a high school student...

Letter to the Editor: Shed the label

Letter to the Editor: Many downstream residents 'absolutely do not' support drainage plan
