It makes sense
People have been complaining about the increase in their property taxes. What do you expect? You approved the increase to the school tax. It’s going to go up.
I read on the front page how the school district is pushing forward with plans to, I believe, disrupt communities in this city. Why don’t these people who want to change things fix up all three schools and with the money left over, pay it to the teachers so we can keep good teachers? I think a decision to take the schools down to just one is insane.
I feel bad
People in St. Joseph, or at least those who comment in this feature, seem a little too enamored with high school. It wasn’t that great, folks. Let’s try something new, something that works better for youth today. If you’re an adult who cares this much about your alma mater and high school pride, I feel kind of bad for you.
Trump University was a sham and was shut down by the authorities. The Trump Foundation was a sham and was shut down by the authorities. Why is it so hard to believe that the Trump presidency is a sham and needs to be shut down by the authorities?
Now they worry?
The city should have been looking at bridges back when they were making bicycle lanes on St. Joe Avenue and walking trails through Midtown. They need to get their priorities straight.
I’m sitting here reading about how they’re trying to downsize all the high schools in St. Joseph and possibly do away with all of them. Well, I have a question for you. If you’re going to do this, are our taxes going to go down? Let’s let the state run the school system like they do in other towns.
The fine print
The biggest problem with Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Medicare for All plan isn’t taxes, it’s the way it allows the government to set rates of payment for physicians and hospitals. These will be set lower than the private insurance level, resulting in rationing of care.
Why would the government want to be responsible for every bad outcome and dissatisfied patient in the health care sector?
