In reference to Matt Sinde's column "Riverside-Brookfield High School board has put school on right path" (Opinion, Nov. 28) we support Ed Jepson, Matt Sinde and Mike Welch for the RBHS school board.

We have lived and worked in this community for 25 years. Our business is located here, our children were educated here and we choose to continue to keep our roots here.

We respect the work Matt Sinde and Mike Welch have accomplished at our high school in their first term. Ed Jepson helps make this team even stronger, and will help make RBHS an even better school.

We are voting for Jepson, Sinde, and Welch because we know them and trust them.

Dr. and Mrs. Steven Hennessy

Hard not to notice and not hard to know who is there when all those cars are parked outside that residence. Doesn't take a stalker or spy. I didn't say who was there, or what they were doing. Just assumed from whose cars they were that it wasn't a cookie exchange. Sounds like maybe you know a lot more about it than I do. Were you one of the attendees? Maybe you'd like to tell us all how positive you've been as you assume others don't do anything to help.

I'm not surprised

To: Not Surprised Your anonymous post claimed neighbors were at another neighbor's personal residence. You guess at names, create/imagine activities and make disparaging comments. Rather than helping our community school you choose to spy/ stalk. You stop short of claiming you must stalk because it is for the kids. Looks like election time and frankly I'm 'not surprised'

No one is stalking. Your continuing comments about JoAnne Kosey are wrong. Stop drinking the Kool-aid and repeating the party line without knowing the facts. It makes you look foolish.

Kosey? What is she doing stalking all the way on the other side of town? She fails to disclose where our money goes with RBEF and she can't even put the telethon together on time.

Robling, Buttimer, and their crew love to make anyone pointing out problems with their candidates look like bad people for being negative about neighbors. They lead the badmouthing of their neighbors including Larry Herbst and JoAnne Kosey. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

"Not Surprised" watching is not all bad. Many were lulled asleep during the "Golden Years". Don't forget what happened. Scanlon-Zeman-Kosey always had innovative ways to promote their agendas. The record is pretty clear if you'll spend a couple of minutes:

@not surprised- for years the neighbors you stalk have had numerous open meetings in the d208 public libraries to discuss RB issues ever join them and participate productively?

Depends. Was the meeting about getting candidates elected or decisions that will be made by the board if their candidates win? If Robling and Buttimer want to run the school they should put themselves up as candidates. Running it from behind the scenes is where people start seeing things as underhanded and sneaky.

Why such negativity against your neighbors?

There is nothing wrong with working to get your desired candidates elected. I don't see a problem with getting together with like-minded neighbors to discuss a campaign strategy. Note: I am not affiliated with any of these candidates or other people mentioned here-I just don't understand the need to look for something underhanded or wrong in an activity that is a normal, acceptable practice that happens daily in democratic countries.@Not Suprised - you can do the same for your chosen candidates.

Stalking? It was pretty obvious. No stalking necessary to notice that gathering. Assuming it wasn't a cookie exchange.

Stalking a neighbor rather than helping our school? What a creep. Jepson, Sinde & Welch you now have my vote too.

Jill, was the timing of your letter one of the things discussed in the Buttimer's basement on Sunday eventing? Yes, people noticed. It's a small town.
