SR Edit: NIC Should Keep Alcohol Ban As Is

"Rather than open Pandora's box and send mixed signals to NIC students, trustees should continue their total alcohol ban. There's nothing wrong with consumption of alcohol in moderation. Or with serving alcohol at fundraisers at The Coeur d'Alene resort or the Coeur d'Alene Inn. School campuses are different, however. At elementary and high school levels, school officials don't tolerate drugs, alcohol or weapons. At the college level, they struggle to control chemical dependency and alcohol abuse among students. A complete NIC ban reinforces the message to students that alcohol can be hazardous."
