  • Tony B in RP neighbor @ Lunt

    bob1983, guns aren't violent. Do you think my EDC is mean to me, hits me, calls me names, forces me to go outside and shoot squirrels?

  • In regards to bo1983's point, even from what little data I provided it should be evident that there is much more to homicides than guns and even the number of guns in circulation that is the root cause of violent crime with firearms.

  • Perez Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    My daughter was accepted to this school for 1st grade for the 2019 school year. She has a pretty intense IEP and this will be her first year in a mainstream classroom. The principal, Ms. Johnson has already met with me twice- once to answer my questions and show me around the school, and another time she called a meeting with the whole special education team (speech therapist, counselor, psychologist, nurse, social worker) so they could learn more about my daughter and how to prepare for her big transition. I ve met several of the staff, and they ve all been kind, and remembered me upon subsequent meetings. They are going above and beyond to make us feel welcome. I was also impressed that Ms. Johnson walks around the school and calls the kids by their names, and she knows details about them. I have another daughter at Skinner West, which is a great school- but the class sizes are too big, and it s easy to get lost in a crowd. My daughter s class at Perez will be 24 students! So glad I found this hidden gem!
