Dumbest thing ever! When your kid breaks his ankle or knee because turf doesn't give, just remember this is what you all wanted. Have fun with the hospital bills the high school sure as hell won't pick up..

Just cancel all the sports and use money towards making high school kids smarter. Rolla and the US needs more engineers and scientists--not football knuckleheads?
Engineers are just book smart. If everyone was an engineer or a scientist then who would correct the mistakes and build it

the schools can cry and whine for money with fundraisers and making our kids endlessly sell shit to earn money for the rolla public schools, yeah it looks like they are broke with their fancy sports field.. meanwhile kids go without lunch..

Is it time for a regime change at the Rolla Schools? They seem to do what ever they want to do with our tax money. And, there's a survey out, asking for more money?

Remember that the school board is elected by the voters and, if candidate runs to fill a spot on the board, the voters can make a change in what you call the current "regime." But before anyone puts themself forward as a candidate, they need to attend current board meetings and work sessions, then decide whether or not to run. Believe me, it's a much tougher job than most people realize.

A school board wanted to do this, but the parents agreed that it was stupid to waste effort on this sort of thing. Misplaced priorities, since kids are in school for learning

Heard they are putting field turf at the adminstration building. If is going saving all the money they claim on maintenance, then all grass on school property should be field turf.

That's nuts! No such plan; whoever told you thtis simply wrong or a liar. Same person probably didn'tget out to vote this week, but sat in his basement thinking up stuff that would stir things up! Such people are divisive and stupid; don't listen to them.

Why should sports teams, band and p.e. classes only be allowed to use the field turf? The grass areas between the sidewalks should be convert to field turf. This would allow all students to reduce their injury risk from walking on the dangerous grass. We need field turf for all, not just the chosen few.

Let us all remember this the next time they say they need more money for capital improvements. I have a feeling it will be a hard sell.

The plastic colors on the field are fading and the field hasn't been used. Looks lousy. Could have done better for the price. It's too late to rip it out and reseed the field.

I thought I read in the paper where it was to be used for band also, and that was how they were trying to justify the high cost. WELL the band is still playing on the track where they always have. The football field appears to be finished??We tried to jog at the track today, the band was playing there so we couldn't. What's up with that?

Donated by gifts? What about in a few years when the repairs are needed. All that expensive repairs will be on the back of taxpayers and then they will be wanting another bond issue to pass. Why can't people see ahead. I probably will not be here then but just remember when it happens.

It is for the kids, not for you.

You would have the kids go to a one-room school with a dirt floor.

Thankfully, you have been out-voted. If you don't like it, go back to Arkansas.
