It just amazes me how so few people can make such a decision that will affect the entire community. 3 years ago when the central elementary school was voted on it was voted NO! I still don't understand how this all happened. The entire thing is a mess! The people who are still for it have not been there to see kids eating lunch around 10 am and some of them not finishing lunch until 2pm...u cant tell me thats a good thing. There are very few books on the libriary shelves bc the libriary is so small with limited book space. im sure there are some good qualities...but go in the middle of the day and take a look for your self before you make a judgment call. Further more ask the kids how they felt about standing up on the bus or sitting 4 to a seat bc the busses in the New Canton area are so crowded. Many of the bus drivers have no control and will not make the kids on the bus move over for kids who need a seat. While it's grand that the kids have a kitchen they can learn to cook in, and seats that rock...i don't like my little girl coming home with her tummy hurting bad bc shes hungary bc she eats on that 10 am lunch break...and the bus driver wont let her eat a snack on the bus. This entire situtation literally makes my stomach ach..i just cant express it. It makes me sick that the news can even post something like this with so little opinions from the county, and then to top it off that the school board just does what they want to do!

From what I have seen of the kids of Buckingham, a walking zombie would be a huge step up the evolutionary ladder! Most look like they have grown up on a steady diet of government cheese, food stamp cheetoes, and meth!
