Leave it alone
St. Joseph School District Superintendent Dr. Doug Van Zyl needs to get his priorities straight. I say leave the high schools alone. They’ve closed enough of our schools. I’m getting sick and tired of my tax money being paid for stupidness.
I’m amazed that the mall is starting to decorate for Christmas. Maybe they need to have a big Thankful Sale for the business that they get, and celebrate Thanksgiving. … We need to be thankful, and I would like to see East Hills put up a “We are thankful for your business” sign. Maybe they’ll get more customers.
Hey, City Hall and school board, that’s our money — taxpayer money — that you’re wanting to spend on one giant school. And then they’ll turn these high schools into apartment buildings. This needs to come to a vote of the people.
Editor’s note: Two points are needed here. The city won’t be spending tax dollars on a new school, though sometimes it is asked to contribute for a portion of street improvements. Any attempt to consolidate or build new schools would require bonding authority that would go to a vote of the people.
You act like we had a whole bunch of soldiers and war going on there in Syria, this so-called battlefield, but there’s only like a thousand soldiers there, if that. And only 50-something of them have been pulled out of there so far. It might not even be that many. You guys gotta get off of that CNN.
Down the tubes
Trump’s right-hand man, one of them, Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, he says, “Get over it. We don’t have a political or military strategy. Get over it.” You’re right, we don’t have any. We’re going down the tubes, and we’re going quick. Get ready, folks, it’s right around the corner now.
Uh, OK ...
Hey, I just thought of something, being that it’s Halloween season. They ought to have a political cartoon in the paper with the guy that has a pumpkin for a head with long, wavy orange hair and fat lips, and it says, “It’s fake news! It’s fake news!” Seems appropriate. Maybe it was a fake news item that he even got elected and we’ve just been going along and didn’t know that he wasn’t supposed to be president.
