Letter about Kingsland school referendum

Please attend informational meetings. In a few short weeks the voters of the Kingsland School District will be faced with a question that many neighboring communities have considered recently with varied outcomes; namely, it is time to make a significant investment in the physical plant used to perform some of the most significant work and activities performed in this community – the primary and secondary education of the children of our community and the continuing education of the community’s adult population.

If you are surprised this is happening, you may have not been watching and listening closely, or you may have been distracted by other more pressing issues of day-to-day life. However, for the last couple of years, some very competent, caring and concerned fellow community members have been attending meetings; walking hallways; looking into classrooms, locker rooms and boiler rooms; asking questions; challenging architects and planners to go back and “do it again;” and they have been carefully weighing “needs” and “wants.”

The levy referendum that is being presented for our consideration in the voting booth on Jan. 13 is not for a palace. It proposes a modern, safe, and healthy environment for delivering enabling education in the community for many years to come at a cost that will never be cheaper and will be less expensive in the long run than the inevitable, ongoing, “Band-Aids’ that our district will be faced with if we choose NOT to do this at this time.

Whatever happens we will end up paying more in taxes than we are now. But the School Board has been kind to the taxpayers of the Kingsland district the past few years through frugal management in anticipation of this upcoming decision. I’d also remind you that one consideration for not bonding for the library was that the community anticipated this project over the horizon.

We recommend highly that you attend one or more of the information sessions in the upcoming weeks to help you make an informed decision. If you have questions, ask. Talk about this with your family, neighbors and friends. Maybe even your enemies. Your personal decision may rest on whether or not you think you can afford the increase in taxes levied by the school district as a result of this project. That is certainly a valid consideration, but it is one that you may have to d .....

Letter about Heartland

How did the idea of Heartland Tire Burning Incinerator get this far? It is absolute madness to let it proceed. It is obvious that all of us would have negative health effects, but who among us would suffer .....
