I am a neighbor, and I welcome the sounds of kids engaged in constructive, healthy, enriching activities. When we bought our house 28 years ago, we knew we'd be affected by lights and sound from Pali. I'd rather have the lights and sounds from our wonderful high school than flashing patrol car lights and the sounds of gunshots and sirens. We are the luckiest community in the world, with one of the best high schools anywhere. Part of what makes it great is the wealth of activities that keep our kids involved and happy.
