    In response to Louis Robling’s question about the Clarion and “trolls,” I wanted to post our commenting policy.

    In brief, Clarion seeks to accept every comment from its reading community without restriction. However, on the topic of “trolling,” Clarion does make these restrictions to commenting:

    -Comments that are irrelevant/completely off the topic of the story within which they originate will not be published.

    -Comments that make factual allegations which cannot be proven and/or are not part of common knowledge will not be published.

    -Comments whose sole puropse is to personally attack or degrade without making a factual argument will not be published.

    -Comments which contain “hate speech” will not be published.

    -D. Mancoff (Clarion sponsor)

    First off I want to say congratulations to Clarion for getting what might be the story of the year. Very impressive. I guess the next question is, will you allow this to turn in to the next spot for trolls?

    As for the referendum, this is great news. RB has finally realized that throwing money at the problem does not fix things and blind siding tax payers is not the way to go about running that school. Now the board as well as the administrators will be forced to find new ways to reduce spending without necessarily cutting the rest of the programs. RB has to reinvent its self (which I personally pointed out last year at a student only forum). Great news.

    Also in response to deborah maxwell, things changed. They are no longer going forward with the plan that was previously laid out by the board. The potential cuts will need to be changed because there is no potential for new money this year. Had they left the cuts up, it would have been misleading to people.

    Mr. Sinde, if your statement of, “We are committed to our stakeholders to be transparent as possible through this budget development process,” is true, then why has the list of current and potential budget cuts for next year disappeared from the school website and/or the Board of Education page?

    The problem is, that unfortunately, we don’t have a balanced budget. We are currently operating with a deficit and even more programs and activities will have to be cut. I’m not certain how you can continue to provide a quality education and experience with inadequate revenues. It is also unfortunate that this issue was not addressed sooner.
