All of you complaining about Wythe County Schools needing renovations should be overjoyed by this news. Be careful what you wish for... http://www2.swvatoday.com/news/2012/may/19/ta...

Not surprised...everything goes up except wages. If county government "or government in general" had to cut out the waste like households do...the schools wouldn't be in need of renovations to begin with. I can see two brand new houses going up from my property....there's surely a few more being built in the county....that extra tax money should cover the increase.

I will absolutely pay it with a smile if it will 100% go toward the schools. Taxes here are low despite inflated housing prices.

I hope you really, in your heart, don't think the money will be spent on what government says it will. Every time I step into a convenience store, there's a big old sign proclaiming how much money the store generated for public schools that year. Where in the hell is that money going? We can't even afford to pay for good teachers? If the waste was eliminated there wouldn't be a need for raising taxes.

Build one new High School to serve the entire county. Don't continue to put money in 3 old schools. Make the school large enough to also serve Bland county students.

I can't wait until THE JUDGE gets on here and just slaps the dog piss out of you again, so you can go off and pout a more couple of weeks. The rest of us will be spared your stupid shit.

What is stupid about assuring a good future for the children. I see you admit you are not up to the job. You still are stuck in that ole chewing tob. syndrom. It was good enough for my great grandaddy and it should be good enough now. You are no where close to your name. Pitty Gritty would be more fitting or maybe even Sh@#@# Gritty. Hope that doesn't just sail over your head. If you don't understand have some one explain it to you. A combined school is long overdue.

Two or three years ago, the supervisors voted to issue 10 million dollars of municipal bonds to be used to do grading at Progress Park. Dalton said at that time that taxes would have to be raised in two or three years to help pay for the bonds. The excuse that the increase would be used for schools is a big joke (lie). Get rid of the jokes for supervisors that we have, all seven of them, and some of the staff and Wythe County would be much better off.

I agree with you. 1 New High school to handle both Bland and Wythe County.

A combined school would be cheaper to operate.
