Cindy Rose

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.

Today would be the perfect day to spend some time listening to the speech that is said to have put Ronald Reagan on the road to the Presidency. It's perfect for today because we find ourselves once again in a time for choosing. Do we surrender to the Democrat/Socialist/Marxists or fight with all that is in us to keep the American dream alive?

Results – Summary of FCPS Reopening Survey Data

With the growing concern over getting our children back in school as quickly as possible I have been seeing more parents asking what the results to the Reopening Parent Survey were. The Tentacle provides you with two images from the five-page survey results as shared during the July 29, 2020 Board of Education Meeting.

Celebrate Entrepreneurs, Don’t Guillotine Them

Imagine a benefactor, almost a Santa Claus, who provides millions of dollars worth of goods each day to millions of customers. The goods are more bountiful, cheaper, and easier to purchase from his store than any single retail establishment of the past, even the vaunted shopping malls and department stores, like Macy’s, which once called itself the “largest store in the world.”

Nothing Says Unity Like Division

The new Othello Park opened in Petersville Friday. I was excited to drive in and see what had been happening behind the dirt mounds that grew and moved over the years as if giant moles had taken up residence. Like a child waiting for Christmas, it felt like forever for this day to arrive.
