Annville-Cleona School Board stays strong on decision to ban ‘The Dirty Cowboy’

The cowboy might be trying to get clean, but the Annville-Cleona School Board on Thursday night stood by its decision that a children’s book showing cartoon images of the man’s artfully concealed nakedness is too dirty.
District resident Tim White was among 30 people who came to the meeting in the hope of getting the board to allow the book to return to the Cleona Elementary School shelves.
“We do not support the right of one parent, citizen or group to impose a well-intended or subjective judgment of what constitutes moral integrity or moral decency,” said White, adding that parents are “outraged.”
