USD 464 board looking at bond issue for $30 million elementary school

Wrong...but Dennis was right about that as well...i guess you just do not like conservative opinions...why do you like making personal attacks?

I am not Dennis Bixby but I am interested in watching out for the taxpayer in this tough economy. I do appreciate the job Mr. Bixby has done being a fiscal conservative!

Sounds like another hail mary pass and hope the voters like it! The community support has not been built the groundwork has not been laid. If you force this on the ballot right now with all these options swirling it will fail. Take your time and do it right convince us that we need this not by condescending but by communicating. How about going in stages and spending less?

The issue that not been addressed or touched upon is that the last successful bind issue was the product of over a year of planning and building community support Rick Lamb can be given much credit for passage because he reached out to entire community. Last bind issue one board member when asked why community support was not sought said they thought the hiring of a consultant to build support was more effective! They lost the election!

Learning the difference between needs and wants is important. This economy is not good and attempting to squeeze additional 30 million for buildings without community support seems impossible.

While that is true the timing is critical and building public support is important or it is just a waste of taxpayer dollars on planning and time.

With so many people out of work and with the unemployment rate rising to 8.2% nationally now seems like a very inappropriate time to spend millions of dollars on building additional buildings for the school. Education is not about buildings it is about learning and character building! There will come a time for buildings and expansion after our community attracts economic growth and jobs! Placing this on the ballot does not mean it is going to pass unless community support is built-simply throwing it together-will not get it! The last successful bond issue had been organized and community support was built for over a year. Pastor Lamb and others reached out to the conservative community and gained support. With this economy and the lack of time this will never fly just more wasted architecture planning money.

School board to hear public comment on bond issue

As weak as this economy remains this bond issue is going to have to wait- we cannot afford it-too many people hurting and out of work! Unemployment rate just went up to 8.2% nationally we need to tighten our belts awhile longer.

When it comes to big government an too much regulation of our lives and too much taxation I want someone in office with ability to say No.
