Dr. Melin will tell you, as he did the audience at a recent school board meeting, that he got his start in radio at high school, and it allowed him to work as a local radio DJ. I'm not sure he realizes radio stations have a lot of canned programs and few actual on-air DJ's.
In regards to the new schools, rumor has it he wants to close Maple, Spring Hill, Thomas Jefferson and Wilson. There is also a rumor that he wants to propose a referendum for the November election. These are rumors, but they come from some pretty knowledgeable sources.
He is having a "Parents Listening" meeting at Maple Elementary, tomorrow, Feb. 11th at 5:30 pm. There is usually a question & answer segment, but be advised that he would rather parents just listen. He gets a little contrary if you ask questions he doesn't want to answer.
Edit to add: I advise anyone with questions or concerns to attend these informal meetings.
