Rosenberg accepts award

On hand to accept a “shaft award” given to the Washoe County School Board by the annual satirical show Sheep Dip last weekend, board member Howard Rosenberg said, “In the spirit of laughter and the joy it brings, not meanspirited hurtfulness, I accept this award and would suggest only that we recognize that there are a minimum of two sides to every issue, and often there are three. After the news this week of what is happening in Paris, isn't it a wonderful thing that we can do our own live Charlie Hebdo here in the United States without threats or fear? As Yacov Smirnoff used to say, ‘What a country!' We are so blessed. God bless America.”
