Sophomores don’t need to take AP classes

Why are high school students in local schools so stressed? Maybe because they and their families believe advice like that in the Town Crier’s “Road to College” column that sophomore year is the time to take an AP class (“Start the school year with college readiness in mind,” Aug. 3).

These classes are intended for juniors and seniors. Anxious parents pressure schools into admitting their younger children into AP classes, and kids figure they must meet the “challenge” or they will not be able to compete for college admission.

Dog-park proposal gives resident pause

Regarding the Town Crier’s July 27 editorial (“A good time to try off-leash dog areas?):

I own a dog. I walk my dog every day on a leash. Every day I see dogs running at Grant Park unleashed. I have seen dog owners whose homes back up to the park (not all people) open their gates and let their dogs roam unattended, apparently feeling this is an open bathroom for their dogs. I see that the editor wants to have dog parks. Well, can we please consider a few things?

Finding options to save Maltby’s

We noted in the July 20 Town Crier that the sword of Damocles again hangs over Maltby’s Public House restaurant.

As we have been regular customers there for years – as have many others in town – we are wondering whether a solution could be found.
