LTE - What does the opposition stand for?


To the Editor:

I am a retired reading specialist who has attended two Duncan Schools bond informational sessions. I came away armed with information.

This is what I know: 1.) This is a well thought out plan; 2.) it was developed by a citizen-led committee over the course of almost a year; and 3.) it does not raise my property taxes above 25 mills, which is the level that has been in place for almost a dozen years — in other words, no alarming change.

Additionally, I came away wondering what those who are opposing this plan stand “for.” The people who developed this plan and its proponents stand for progress, for students and for Duncan. All I hear from whose who oppose is what they are against.

I would urge those who are against this school bond to ask themselves what they stand for. I hope that they will determine that they too stand for progress, students and Duncan!

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
