I just don't understand why so much money is spent on someone who commits a crime and we have students in this county who go to overcrowded schools, do not have medical and dental insurance, and receive the kind of meals that are fixed for them at school. Prisoners are treated better than the children, not just in Davidson county but everywhere. They get a warm dry place to live, have medical and dental workers come in for them and a warm meal 3 times a day. I think our priorities need to change and put the children first.

I've been noticing a lot of activity at the duracell plant during the past two months. There are semi trucks and vehicles at the shipping dock. Does anyone kn ow what is going on?

I agree DHM. My oldest son has to read the book for his report at school. Why? There aren't enough for all the students to take a book home and do they're homework. My kids sit 3 to a seat on the bus. Why? They're aren't enough buses. Yet, we can continue to find funds for criminals. Build new prisons, jails, dental for them, cable tv ( I can't afford it myself)
We need to put the money in the schools 1st!
