1. For the second year in a row, we have a contested municipal election in the Park Cities. Amy Titus announced yesterday that she is seeking the seat on the Highland Park ISD Board of Trustees that John Bunten is vacating. On Jan. 31, Sam Dalton made the same announcement. The race is on! We’ll have more details about each candidate in next week’s paper. (FYI, the other seat that will appear on the ballot is occupied by Joe Taylor, and he told his fellow trustees Tuesday that he intends to keep it.)
2. On Sunday evening, the Highland Park school district’s Parent Education Committee will host a screening of Race to Nowhere, a documentary that analyzes “the dark side of America’s achievement culture.” The screening at Studio Movie Grill will be followed by a panel discussion among HPISD counselors. You can purchase tickets here.
3. Talmage Boston’s most recent column was about the Jesters program at Highland Park United Methodist Church, which provides a creative outlet to adults with special needs. This troupe of actors has been rehearsing for weeks, and they’ll stage their show, Dave and His Circle of Friends, this weekend.
