  1. Excellent! I love the recap (and the articles, of course!) So proud of our Police Dept. to invest in our officers and our town to Want to learn/teach the advanced skills so deescalation is the priority. I appreciate that beyond words! I respect them for wanting the higher standard for us as well. What an honor! I also appreciate Our Board working together to fix the issues!
    Good job Lansing Journal for reporting on things we should all know, and be involved with. Yes, we alllll need to be at meetings, School Board meetings as well! Thank you
