#MCS Following the Media – 2/18/11 – 2/20/11

Good afternoon. I’ve got a lot of things on my plate today, and I’m still catching up from the weekend, so no detailed update today. Here are the articles from over the weekend.

The CA came out in favor of the transfer referendum over the weekend. Give that editorial a read, it’s a good one.

In other news, early voting continues. You can find the location nearest you by clicking here.

It’s going to take me a few days to get caught up. While I’m doing that, expect an update every other day or so.

Most importantly, whatever your position on the schools issue, get out and vote.
