By Elizabeth Miller

Born and raised in the Bronx, he’d joined a gang as a teenager and been incarcerated for dealing drugs by his 20th birthday. His outlook on life was as narrow as the space between the buildings and pavement that surrounded him.

By Elizabeth Miller
How best do we whittle ourselves into instruments for change? Is it by sharpening our tongues, hardening our fists or sweetening our songs?

The community response shows mounting, not dissipating concern, and Orent says part of that is in how Boulder Valley School District has responded to the questions raised about whether the air quality is safe at Casey.
