Opinion Editor Note

We have received many comments about the Yancey County School Board Superintendent Selection.  In keeping with the Opinion Posting Guidelines, “You may comment on elected officials, public offices, government bodies, public figures. You can comment on the actions public officials take in relation to their jobs but not make personal attacks.”  Since we have received so many comments that were personal attacks, we are not posting any opinions on this matter.  The purpose of this opinion page is to provide insight and comments on subjects or events. It cannot be a gossip column or place for hateful comments.
