Please oh Please Pay Attention

imagesMore than a little sad was a recent editorial in an Indiana newspaper urging residents to participate in a school corporation meeting.

For the second time in as many weeks the Herald-Times has pretty much begged Bloomington residents and politicians to engage and share in community decision-making.  Public notice, apparently, isn’t quite enough to roust out the apathetic on the issue of downtown parking changes or operation of the public schools.

I laud the newspaper for making “get out the deciders” a priority.   How distressing it must be for them to think they need to make such efforts.
