I attended Morgan Middle School between 1980-1983. Although I must agree with the notion that it was unusually "Hot" on the third floor, to tear down the school and build a new one while increasing taxes in the local community is NOT the answer Ellensburg needs. Come On...They're between 12 and 15 years old, they can endure a little sweat, as did I. Fix the Boilers in that school for starters!! That's the BIG problem as I recall. I frequent Europe. In Europe they don't tear down a building every fifty years, they improve it!!! Why can't the same thing be done in this case? Why does everything always have to be torn down before it can be improved in the USA? It is an added expense to the burdensome tax payer and the cause is never justified enough to substantiate the cost of rebuilding. Ellensburg, along with the rest of the state needs to learn this hard lesson. Don't tear down and rebuild, just.....improve what you have. Use up to date systems, Build them to last!! I'll give you an example. Look at Todd Millegard, He built more new homes than he can sell. Enough for five families when only two are needed. Now, My folks are forced to deal with his misguided greed. The city wants to expand into my parents property. They want my father to pay extra tax for being part of the city limits, they want him to convert over to natural gas, ect...Why should he? What did he do to take on "heat" from the city, or for that matter Milligard properties.Enough "REBUILD" action in that neck of the woods!!! Save Money, Don't spend it...the way that the county misused the road between Reecer and the airport.
