    Way to pay

        With the economy and the job market the way it is today, we need to make ourselves stand out in order to be considered for a job.  One way we can stand out is through education, however going to college is expensive, and we see the price of a college education rises each day.

    Closing of schools

        Here we are again having to fight to keep small schools open.
        We appreciate our School Board members, but Gary Hostutler, again thinks we need to close small schools. Our children get a better education than these classes with 25 or 30 students. We the taxpayers should have a say so before Gary Hostutler speaks out before they close any school.

    Cut the grass and the budget

        Well, it’s that time of year again; time for the highway department to cut the grass on the roadsides. I’ve seen several already. You probably have too. A guy on a tractor with one of those mechanical arms hooked to it and on the end of the arm is the mowing/cutting unit.
