Is the town board undermining our existing zoning by an excessive—and inappropriate—use of an obscure provision of the zoning code that allows a parcel to be rezoned to an open-ended, anything is permissible, 100 percent negotiated “transitional zone”?

The Art of the Deal

To Home School or Not to Home School

Dear Dr. Linda,

We’re only into the second week of school and our fifth-grade son, Joey, doesn’t want to go to school again. He’s never liked school. For years we blamed his teachers. Then we put him in private school and it didn’t get better.
