Middle school gets new principal

Mike Asbell, an assistant principal at Seven Springs Middle School since 2004, will take the helm at Bayonet Point starting Monday. "The biggest thing that I'm planning on doing is getting in there and getting to know the staff and their concerns," said Asbell, who also has worked at Hudson and Ridgewood high schools. "The most important thing is to spend a lot of time listening." As for bringing some desired stability to the school, he said, "That's something that I hope we're going to be able to do."
