Where we live: Lancaster 3/01


The community’s attention will be focused on continuing debate of the Redskins mascot issue facing the School District as a district-sponsored forum gets under way at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The forum, featuring focus groups meeting at various tables, will be held in the cafeteria of the High School at 1 Forton Drive.

A pro-Redskins group lobbying the district to keep the mascot and name in place, plans a unifying rally at 6:30 p.m. outside the High School. The group will gather inside the school foyer if the weather is cold.

School officials have said no decision will be made on the issue, not even for the 2015-16 school year.
