In Da Newz
Atlas School was in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News on Friday. The article is a fine piece giving all the basics of who we are, what we do and the complaints that have been brought against us.
Huskey and Lund, however, continue to play games with the motivations for their complaints. They cite the safety of Atlas students and the allegation that we were running “under the radar” of city officials as their primary concerns. They say that Atlas should have known, since NSA was also being harassed for the same zoning issues. But their “concerns” prove too much. Why have they not also registered complaints with Spectrum Dance School which has regular classes for children? Why have they not sent complaint letters to the city about the playground in Friendship Square or Hodgin’s Drug which probably attracts far more children every day than Atlas?
Atlas students have walked on the sidewalks of Main Street for over four years. We’ve spent time picking up trash; the students are picked up at lunch time everyday in Friendship Square. We occasionally have small group recitations in local coffee shops. If that’s “under the radar”, then I guess we’re guilty. To anyone who actually spends time downtown, we’ve been as open and obvious as the fountain in the square.
