PLYMOUTH â€” The phrase on the business card of Dave Ferguson, President & CEO of Stone Creek Homes, is more than just a catch phrase. It is a vision that Ferguson lives by.

â€śBooks still have their place â€” they will always have their place,â€ť said Lincoln Jr. High School principal Dan Funston.
However, after going to computers for every student this year, area schools say that they expect to keep up with ever-changing technology.
Schools have a three or four-year lease with Apple, after which they can choose to keep the computers they have â€” or go with a new technology.
â€śI see us continuing to stay current and teach the kids these skills,â€ť said Funston. â€śWe are going to remain at the front of teaching our kids technology skills.â€ť
