Re: [school-discuss] Status of Press Release?

I have attempted to contact the locals around here, But no one bites. I 
will keep trying each month though. I figure they will either get tired of 
me and start filtering my emails. Or they can respond. I dont want to be a 
prick but I also dont want to give up. I am the kinda person that if you 
dont want to hear from me you have to tell me, not ignore me.
