Talk about ballot issues at art shack

FRISCO – Today is the last chance to discuss Tuesday’s ballot issues, and there’s an opportunity to do so at the art shack’s monthly Soapbox Series.

The series is an open-forum discussion of current affairs – open to those of all political, religious and intellectual persuasions.

The owners of Frisco’s art shack, Andrew Held and Brian Howard, held their first Soapbox discussion for the anniversary of the Sept. 11 hijackings, giving the community “the opportunity to deal with emotions” and other related issues.

The discussion was such a success, they decided to make it a monthly affair.

Held said they’ve had a good turnout at the two previous discussions and plan to focus today’s discussion on Tuesday’s ballot issues.

“We’re going to talk about the things we’re voting on and make sure everybody understands what they’re voting on,” he said.

The Soapbox Series is an opportunity for people to speak their peace and listen to others – including those with different opinions. The series has attracted a variety of people, Held said, including fundamentalist Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, military and nonreligious.
