Letters: Too much drama about North Rowan

Too much drama about North Rowan
I am a freshman at North Rowan High School. I am proud to be a Cavalier, but some things are being said about my school that have been blown out of proportion.
North has a reputation for being a violent and uneducated school ó which is not true. In fact, a lot of the students and staff are the nicest people you can meet. Compared to what I have heard from friends at other schools, North is a better, less-violent school.
People are only interested in the negative for some reason. They hear something good, but they either twist it or forget about it, like the “he said, she said” drama in high school itself.
The band has won many awards, including grand champion and many first-place awards. We also held a canned food drive for the homeless shelter. But people forget all about that.
I work hard and am very proud of my school. I hope that they don’t make the wrong decision.

Why drive a car?
In response to Wednesday’s letter by Gary Smith (“Letting drunk drivers ride ‘cycles is crazy):
I, too, have wondered why I have to carry insurance on two vehicles, buy tags and pay taxes on them as well as have a valid drivers while these motorized bikes travel free.
A friend of mine calls them ABC bikes because many have them due to the loss of their drivers license after driving under the influence.ó Floyd Wood
