    Local artists returns to art after battle with cancer

    The story of Karen and Mark Klay should be the story of their art. It should be a story of a married couple who collaborate to create works of art and have carved out a career doing so.

At issue is whether an election will be held in the fall of 2015. While the bond package contains some valuable projects for our region it should be noted many of these projects are simply nice additions versus necessities.
