The cuts are necessary to pull the district out of statutory operating debt. Thirty-five tenured employees -- including Sue Wolter, president of the local teachers union -- were placed on an unrequested leave of absence and have the right to request a hearing.

Finding the perfect gown is a big stress for many high school girls as prom swiftly approaches. Scheduling hair appointments, manicures, finding the perfect shoes, jewelry, corsage, and, don't forget -- the date, all become minor details, well sort of, compared to choosing the gown of choice.
