Reader discusses views of Lake Forest High School Board of Education's consideration of capital improvement plan.
There seems to be a war developing between Patch, Nancy Thorner and District 115 Board of Education. Wars bring out the worst in the participants and are destructive. It often misses the point. The remaining incumbent D 115 BOE member Todd Burgener, takes to task, Patch, for appearing, in his assessment, to be a sop and defender of regular contributor, Nancy Thorner, and Mrs. Thorner for her, “often foolish and misinformed ranting.” Mr. Burgener further scolds Patch for gross inaccuracies in their facts and for presenting, in their pieces, opinions rather than facts.
