Editor, Daily News Mahar has decided to go with PARCC this year, instead of MCAS. Last year the town of Orange voted in favor of a one-year moratorium on PARCC. This would only apply to students of Orange. But, the town of Orange and school officials told me that, since Mahar is part of a...
Editor, Daily News I would like to revive the long lost art of “common sense.” That art has been, little by little, thrown to the wayside in favor of regulators that have to make their jobs seem necessary. Now, be calm, this may take awhile. The subject is “bicycle riding, walking, picking up...
