Cut N-N middle school
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 - 1:13 pm

It’s not fair to attack public education. Focus should be on the boards of education who allow the monetary waste that is being committed in the name of “improving and creating quality education.” I can tell you that one huge area of waste is the Norwood-Norfolk Middle School. In the past, there were more students and we had two elementary buildings and one high school. With fewer students, we now have one building with a pre-kindergarten to grade four elementary wing, a grades five to eight wing and a grades nine to 12 high school.

High gas prices
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 - 1:13 pm

Remember folks as you pump that ever-increasing, high-priced gas into your car that the folks in control in Washington are the ones who have said for years that we should be paying more for our gas, and driving less, one likely a direct result of the other. Just yesterday, a White House spokesman said the American people can easily absorb $5-plus gasoline. Easy for them to say when it’s our tax dollars filling the tanks in their taxpayer-leased vehicle and flying them around the country first class spending revenues they haven’t even collected from us yet.
