To the Editor,

I went to the last meeting to hear some facts on building a new school in Rushford.

One thing I saw and heard were hurt feelings over closing the Peterson school and moving all to Rushford.

Nothing was said about other schools having an extra school in another town. So here are a couple of examples: Fillmore Central and Mabel-Canton. I havent heard of any problems keeping them going. And if my memory is correct I remember hearing how Rushford was in bad shape and asked Peterson to join them so the all could survive. And now they (Rushford) want to close the Peterson school.

Our neighboring school in Lanesboro has remodeled and added on several times and it hasnt cost $18.455 million. We taxpayers werent given any choice as to buying of the land and deciding which option would be chosen for building. Seeing as we will be paying for many, many years we should have been given the opportunity to vote rather than have it shoved down our throats. Nobody will be paying our taxes but us.

Our school board needs to remember who put them in and who can put them out.

The superintendent needs to realize we all dont have his kind of salary. And most of our raises arent even with inflation.

Lets think very hard before we vote. There must be other options.

To the Editor,

After reading the Tri County Record of this past week and learning of all of the reasons why we should vote for a new school I would like to voice my equally sincere reasons to vote NO. There are at least two main reasons. Numb .....
