    Is the school board asleep at the wheel again? I thought they wanted monies for two new high schools, two new middle schools, 1/2 dozen elementary schools, a board office and a partridge in a pear tree? Why not jump on the wagon and hit us all at once with a 1.0 or 1.5% increase…or wait a few years when the 1/2% runs out and say, “it is not new” it runs forever like the bunny….and on….:)
