I have been doing alot of thinking lately, and I would just like to get everyone elses opinions on some things. When did highschool football games start charging 5 bucks a head to enter the gates? That is highway robbery! I have a grade school student, a middle school student, and a high school student. Each child participates in sports and I have to pay our way into every game which is NOT the problem. The problem is on friday nights we all go out to support the eagle football team and just to get in the game it cost us 25 bucks. Not counting the money we spend at the food bar while there. I know uniforms are costly, and they split that money up between all sports, BUT that is crazy. Are you sure this money isnt going into someones pocket?Also, yearbook ads in the highschool are a hundred dollars. Exactly what is that money used on? Not the yearbooks, because they purchase them for enough money to cover that cost. Does the yearbook editor put that in her pocket or what? Can someone clarify where that money goes? I would like to know. I am sick and tired of handing out my hard earned cash to a school system that overprices everything, and sends the board to meetings at the gault house that cost 400 bucks a night to stay and attend not to mention the money they spend on thier food eating there. Everyone needs to wise up and check into these things. Ths place has went to the dogs and nothing is ever done.

If football tickets are 5 bucks apiece I probably will not go to any games..that is a bit much in my opinion.

My property taxes went up at least $200 because of the board. Wait until the add on to all these elementary schools and see how much they go up. MVE is a new school & I heard they are adding on to it. We need to vote for all new board members!!!

I guess the people of LC will have to pay for that mistake. I heard they we doing it because one of the board members wants the middle school closed. That's why they are spending a lot of money on all of the grade schools.

Well that too. If they close the middle school there will of course not be enough room for the extra students.

Forget Stinnett has the kids that came from Beechfork? Not to mention all the transfers from MVE. Of course Hays Lewis can handle them.

So student what do you think about the middle school closing? I've heard what the adults think but nothing from the students who go there.

Hey BC, nobody is ripping anything off. Take your mnedicine and find a soap opera to watch and stay out of the way of working people.

Sorry strap on king, I did not write that. I could not possibly care less who or what the school system is ripping off and what they are doing it with. Honestly. You all will have to excuse the strap on king. It's that time of the month.
