Cindy A. Rose began writing for the Tentacle in 2011 trying to raise awareness over things happening within Frederick County Public Schools. She began keeping a close watch on FCPS when she learned there were not enough air conditioned buses for special needs children during the hot Maryland summers. The Tentacle offered her a place to share her concerns with her community when local newspapers didn’t always. Cindy had the opportunity to buy the Tentacle from creator/owner John W. Ashbury in 2019, so she did. She believed then, as she believes now, our communities, friends and neighbors have important things to say that needs to be shared with those living around them. Large corporate news companies don’t always share in those passions and concerns. The Tentacle is a local news, commentary and community website run by citizens, for citizens. Its success depends on your participation.

Councilman Hagen – How Dare You! Part I

Balloon releases are “symbolic speech” just like flag burning which is protected by the First Amendment of United States Constitution.  The Supreme Court has upheld that freedom of speech protects actions that society finds offensive.   As offensive as Councilman Kai Hagen may find the release of helium filled balloons that doesn’t trump our right to freedom of expression.
