Uncertain future for BHHS preschool program
March 05, 2014 08:21 am

BHHS students get hands-on teaching experience with preschoolers at the high school’s child development program.

About 50 children will lose their inexpensive preschool services when the teacher of a Brookings-Harbor High School’s child development program leaves at the end of the school year.

The program, overseen by instructor Cindy Appanaitis, offers high school students hands-on teaching opportunities with children ages 3 to 5.

Preschoolers have class four days a week for 90 minutes, for which parents pay $125 per semester. Most of this money is used to purchase supplies and to make equipment purchases.

County delays advisory survey
February 28, 2014 06:51 pm

Curry County commissioners decided Wednesday to delay distributing “advisory” questions with the upcoming May ballot, but instead to wait and send them in a mass mailing later in the year so as to not confuse voters.

Advisory ballot questions are basically surveys questioning voters if they are in favor of municipalities pursuing certain issues or asking for their opinion about issues elected officials might be interested in placing on a future ballot.
