Board signals opposition to guns on school grounds

MONROE - In a symbolic move, the Monroe school board adopted a resolution Monday against any potential legislation that would allow guns or other weapons on school grounds. "I think from our standpoint, it's common sense that (guns) shouldn't be in schools - it's not the place - and this makes that clear," said board president Bob Erb. The resolution was recommended by the policy committee, which discussed the issue after Derek Hoesly, 28, of Monroe brought it up at a February school board meeting.
