This is my last plea.

I'm working on a pro/con story for Monday about the new school start times. The high schools will be starting at 8:30 a.m., junior high(s) at 8 a.m. and elementary schools at 7:30 a.m.

I've been trying all week to find someone who thinks the staggered school times won't help alleviate traffic congestion. Or someone who doesn't agree with the staggered times for whatever reason they may have. It was easy finding someone who thinks it will work and finding people who are indifferent on the idea of staggered times, but someone who is against it is hard to find.

I went to the high school and junior high tour this afternoon and every parent I talked to was either for the staggered times or unsure if whether or not it will work.

This wasn't my first attempt. Tomorrow I'm also going to the mall in hopes of finding the opposite side to this.

If you know of anyone, please e-mail or call me at 361-580-6504. I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.
