CHATHAM, Mass. — In "Jaws," the fictional mayor tried to protect the summer tourism season by keeping a lid on reports of the man-eater lurking offshore.

It tore up trees and threw around the roof tiles like a 2 year old in full tantrum mode. The storm was all over and done in the space of about 10 minutes, yet restoring some semblance of order took several days. The emotional impact of the scene of devastation, and the physical work also took its toll, even as we give thanks that no one was injured.

This week, I had the opportunity to visit a food bank and a soup kitchen. Both experiences were enlightening, and vastly different from what I was expecting. Did you know that most people getting extra help from these organizations not only have jobs, but also receive SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits? I certainly didn’t.
Our state is taking a beating over our nation’s broken immigration system. Unfortunately, we’re hearing a lot of rhetoric and campaign pandering on this issue. Here’s the truth: securing the border is about more than guards and fencing.

The beginning of the school year provides opportunities for fresh ideas and positive changes to enhance learning experiences for all children. During the spring and summer, the Kyrene School District Governing Board and district leaders were hard at work considering ideas that would impact the budget for the 2014-15 school year.

This budget also demonstrates the board’s commitment to invest in one of our most valuable resources — teachers and staff who received a cost of living increase.
