A resident of the Lake School District has raised questions about a fundraiser donkey basketball game scheduled for April 23, saying it sends the wrong message to the students and community.

 Virginia Holmes, a mother of elementary school students, writes in a letter to Jim Witt, Lake school superintendent, that donkey basketball “...raises concern and controversy every year in many districts across the country.”

 “As many enjoy the fun of a silly game, others are concerned about the welfare of the animals involved,” Holmes writes. “As responsible adults, parents and teachers we need to take the lead and guide properly our next generations, making sure they receive the proper messages and examples from us.”

 Witt confirmed receiving the letter but declined to comment further.

Northwood officials are considering a proposal to expand Community Reinvestment Areas (CRAs) throughout most of the city as an economic development tool.

“We’re going to explore some changes to our CRAs,” said Councilman Dave Gallaher at a council meeting on Thursday. “We have a CRA on the east and west sides of town that primarily encompasses the commercial districts. We’re going to look at possibly including some property in the center of town that would actually at some time in the future connect both of those CRAs.”
