THIS IS THE BIGGEST CRIME TO EVER HAPPEN IN CALHOUN COUNTY. IT IS AN ATTEMPT TO DISTROY THE ONLY TWO TOWNS WE HAVE. WHY ISN'T IT ON THE BALLOT? WE NEED TO REMOVE THE SCHOOL BOARD.

I strongly agree whith Bob. This should have gone to public vote. The School Board may well find themselves removed come next election, that is a vote the public is allowed to make. I hope that it speaks clearly to those who called themselves speaking for their district as a whole.

I do not agree with Bob or Concerned. The students in this distric deserve to have a school that is not falling down around their ears. I believe the School Board finally put the students above simple minded people like those two and others like them. I truly applaud the School Board,s efforts to give students a school that will finally be in the 21st century.

Well as of last week the school superintendant announced there will be no consolidated school. She's been fighting for this for 3 yrs and she suddenly decides to change her mind. What a coincidence,it couldn't be because she's afraid she won't get re-elected. I would hope the people of Calhoun county wouldn't be persueded to vote for her again. She needs to find a job in Bay county since that's where she spends most of her time!
