LETTER TO THE EDITOR: "As Rockwood School District parents and residents, we recognize the vast needs of our schools," says a Rockwood parent, who heads a group that is supporting the $38.4M no-tax increase bond issue on the April 2 ballot.
Rockwood School District Voters: For more than 10 years, my family has been part of the Rockwood School District, and I have been involved in many of the district's efforts. Most recently, I was asked to head up the 2013 Prop S Bond Issue Committee, and of course, I said yes, to further show my support of the district and this initiative. I know how important this bond issue is to district families. Our community needs to pass a bond issue to make improvements to the schools.

In Fenton there is a two-man race for mayor
The ballot for the Apr. 2 local elections became final Wednesday, which was the last day candidates could file. Fenton voters will elect a new mayor to fill the seat currently held by Dennis Hancock, who announced last year that he would not seek re-election after 12 years on the job. Two people are vying for the mayor's post - Alderman Paul Seemayer, Ward 1, and former alderman Michael D. Polizzi.

Two candidates have thrown their hats in the ring - Carol Brennan and Andrew Sobey Jr. There is a bit of an unusual situation in Ward 2 where incumbent Joe …
