Letter to the editor: Gov. Scott criticized for response to school shootings

Posted on July 12, 2018 |
By H. Dexter Oliver

Half listening from the back of the sanctuary I heard them say that their work environment was no longer safe for them. That caught my attention. It was not the words they said but the tone in their voices.
