We were appalled by L. Branch's attack of Terry Burke and Scott Berman. Branch accuses Terry and Scott of being the problem and states that they are guilty of "telling lies" and "crying wolf." Nothing could be further from the truth.
Terry and Scott are dedicated community members. They have put their time and energy, free of charge, into a wide variety of community issues and causes, often seeking solutions for the underprivileged and the voiceless. In the 13 years that we have known them, they have never exaggerated facts or been prone to using hyperbole. In fact, their efforts have been greatly appreciated by countless people.
Terry and Scott are now advocating for their own daughter. She is a wonderful young woman deserving of a rich high school experience. It is possible. It just isn't happening. That's why Terry and Scott have been so active about seeking a solution to the Special Education program at OPRF.
We hope that the letter in last week's paper is not perceived as accurate by people who do not know Terry and Scott personally. The many of us who do, count ourselves as lucky to know such fine, loving and dedicated people.
