Dear neighbors,

The concept of such creativity in our SRVUSD high schools is a great and wonderful idea! I commend the students for their efforts.

But humor could be imagined in such student projects. What if a student designed a model of a very silly roundabout for the Alamo Plaza. What if the twin tower model pictured in the article was built at MVHS as the Stang Academy for the Comedic Arts in honor of Arnold Stang.

Seriously, HUMOR should be a category for these very creative projects and maybe, just maybe, FANTASY should also be added.

A round of applause for the projects and their creators,

OX

Dear neighbors,

What if a student actually proposed a better solution to local issues in a creative project? It is very likely, now isn't it.

A student would not consider a roundabout a solution or that a Y fits just fine deep in the Hemme neighborhood. In fact, I want to propose another category for these creative projects, Politics. Our students are more globally sensitive and less tied to the cultures of their grandparents that now define our local politics.

A creative solution to community might result.
