In spite of what you know or think of Ben, everyone should attend this vigil to show support to Ben and Rachel in this time of turmoil. Sometimes life makes us all think of not so rational actions, myself included. Ben and Rachel, no matter what has happened or what will happen, we want you to know that there are many residents in SCS are concerned and do care about all three of you.

It's terrible to hear the news on Mr. Ben Hughes, I honestly can't believe it. He was always approachable with a smile, I called him out of the blue once and he generously returned my call willing to assist. Neighbors were proud to say they know him and never said anything bad. I believed he had his heart in SCS. I wonder why there isn't more details on this event. As a resident and SCS tax payer, I have many questions on what happened and I believe we have the right to know what was discussed in this private meeting. Why did city council vote him out? Thanks for posting Dennis, I care and It's just sad for Mr. Hughes my prayers out to him and his family.
