Letters to the Editor

The Editor:
We truly live in an extremely generous town. The Blaine Food Bank would like to thank all the groups and individuals that made food and cash donations to our organization.
The names of all involved are too numerous to mention - please know that we are grateful for all you do.
The food bank will be able to help over 250 of our neighbors continue to feed their families.

The Editor:
On January 24, the Blaine school district was informed at the same time the media was informed that high school principal Dan Newell has been served with a misdemeanor summons for obstructing an officer and rendering criminal assistance. I assure you that Blaine school district makes every effort at all times to cooperate with law enforcement.
While we do not presume guilt or innocence, at this time Mr. Newell has been placed on paid administrative leave.
Throughout all of this, the priority of the school board and district staff continues to be the safety and education of your children. Providing a quality education in an atmosphere conducive to learning is our continued focus.
We will keep you informed of any new developments on this matter. If you have any questions, please contact the district office.
Mary Lynne Derrington, Ed. D.
Superintendent, Blaine School District
