    If we simply look at the unemployment rate of 6.7 percent, it would seem that things are getting better, but there is much that lurks beneath the surface of this calculation.
    What this doesn’t take into account is that millions of workers have given up. You may ask why anyone would give up looking for work when a good job is the key to so many positive life outcomes.

    Kudos for successful Skate the Lake
    Editor:

    New school board is actually more open than the old one
    Editor:
    In response to Greg Romberg’s column of Dec. 25: Maybe Mr. Romberg should investigate the actual facts.
    First, the board has had its own attorney. In the past, the hiring of said attorney was done behind closed doors with no public notice. We should be applauding the new board majority for hiring an attorney in public and increasing transparency.
