Healing the divides

There is a need to mend, a need to bring people together to understand and not fear one another — in the Black Lives Matter movement as well as in other rising tides of discord.

Look beyond the uniformity

In his essay “Finding Beauty in Bygone America,” appearing in the Sunday’s CDT, Chris Rosenblum uses the apt phrase “throwback individuality” for the off-beat and long-dated leavings of the past that are only found today on forgotten roads and offer all remaining to us that is pleasing and refreshing to the eye.

School an asset to the region

In regard to the State College Area School District considering closing Corl Street Elementary, I feel this decision has the potential to affect all of us in the State College area, not just those in the neighborhoods served by the school.

Change needed on PSU’s board of trustees

The ineptitude and poor performance have gone on too long. Despite recommendations and findings of a consultant solicited by the Penn State board of trustees, our leaders have failed to make the necessary changes that would improve our board’s effectiveness and decision-making that reflect the values, principles and feelings represented by the majority of our alums.

Time to take burden off police

Thank you for covering our Showing up for Racial Justice rally to support the Black Lives Matter movement, a rally that I attended with a fellow parishioner representing the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Centre County. It was an enlightening time, and I got the chance to engage in conversations with some of the people watching us.

Actions not good for PSU

Over the past four and half years Penn State has squandered hundreds of millions of dollars that should have been used to educate the youth of Pennsylvania on a clumsy — and largely unsuccessful — effort to wash the stench of Jerry Sandusky from the university.

Smaller schools enhance education

Currently the SCASD school board is considering closing Corl Street Elementary and shifting many of the students to an expanded Radio Park Elementary. A larger school will have a negative effect on education, even if class sizes remain the same. Although the school can be designed to make it less intimidating for elementary students, they end up isolated from others with four or five classrooms for each grade.
