OK, the official word is finally out. You can read the story of the abrupt retirement of Jennie and Larry Brown from SPARC in Style today.
Personally, I'm holding my tongue because whatever the real story is, I don't know what it is. I do know two of my children have had great experiences in SPARC classes and some of my favorite actors in town are on the staff there. I'm curious as to what's prompted this move, but mostly, I hope SPARC remains strong and healthy and continues to grow, regardless of the shake-up.
