To the editor:
The headline article in Monday’s paper tells us how the school board didn’t divert funds from a bond issue for school renovation to the use of athletic fields (entertainment). Well, not right away and only about $5 million. And of course none of the current members were on the school board then.
This reminds me of the assurances about a decade ago that the closure of Centennial Elementary School wasn’t motivated by diverting the building and grounds to use as athletic purposes. That wasn’t done — well, not for a few years, and not by the same school board people — mostly.
So why would I vote against money for education? I don’t trust the management to use it for education. Well, OK, flat-screen TVs in the lunch room are a technology upgrade.
