Pleased and disappointed

I am so pleased to read about the flower boxes that will be along Juliana Street. They will help make Parkersburg more attractive. Our great city is NOT reflected in the way it looks, but I believe this is a great first step.

I am so disappointed in the BOE for not accepting the school-wide free lunch program. Please work out anything that is stopping full acceptance – whether it is to include Waverly or any other issue. No child should ever go hungry.
