To the Editor: There is little debate on the need for the Little Falls School District to levy additional money for maintenance for their facilities.

To the Editor: The proposed Social Host Ordinance (SHO) being promoted by the Stand Up 4 You Coalition in last week’s lead story is yet another instance of interest groups asking for more laws when the ones we have are sufficient.
