"WE hope that the Parents of the VICTIMS of the
student-criminal acts of the 'CARMEL FOUR' are PAID, ROYALLY." It is this kind of ignorance that proves our country is in trouble. One thing the author of this quote needs to realize is that just because three out of the FIVE THOUSAND other students at Carmel High School were involved in some less than reputable activities, doesn't prove that all students behave that way. And that certainly doesn't mean that those other 5000 students should be punished because of it. For someone to portray that belief is simply unprofessional. Perhaps, before the author of this quote bashes the education system they should educate themself first.
PLEASE VOTE YES!!! On the Carmel Referendum on May 4th, 2010. Thank you for your support.

That person is a troll. They rant and rant and rant under different names. Makes the time that I spend on the message board quite painful.

The author of this quote clearly couldn't think of a logical response to the previous point that was brought up, and decided to respond with an illogical response, that doesn't actually have anything to do with the referendum itself. Please try not to listen to this garbage, and please vote YES! On the Carmel Referendum regarding education up for vote on May 4, 2010.

Carmel should not ask to increase residential property taxes for schools when they're using the taxes to pay operating costs of the arts center. My opinion is taxpayers should send this message by voting NO on the referendum.

Vote YES on May 4!!!

We moved to Carmel because of the wonderful schools. Our children love their classes and teachers. This referendum is for our children and to make sure we keep the teachers we have instead of losing many of them to cuts. Cutting teachers will increase class sizes, decrease the quality of education we moved her for, and decrease our property values.

So, let's help to increase our property values, and keep the wonderful programs and teachers that our children love and our community appreciate. Vote YES, YES, YES

This referundum is about Carmel students, Carmel teachers and Carmel resident's property values. If the referendum passes, teacher jobs will NOT be cut and our class sizes will NOT increase.

We are losing money because there are not enough tax revenues. This will make sure we can keep our wonderful teachers and excellent academic programs.

Vote YES, YES, YES

First of all it is spelled "Please", second of all, this is not a so called "new tax" that ignorant people (such as this) believe it to be. They hear the words "tax increase" and raise heck about it before actually reading the fine print. This "tax"...for your information is not an additive tax, but rather, it is just replacing the money that has been taken away from the school system with the new budget cuts. I apologize to everyone else that I have to educate people like this myself on things on these matters when they should already know about it themselves.

Again, please vote YES!!!!! And stop the wonderful students of Carmel High School from being exposed to pure ignorance.

The school superintendant says that they can undo previous budget cuts if the referendum passes. In other words, the schools do not want to make any cuts and are asking for more than is needed. This would be a very large tax increase and my honest opinion is that voters should reject it. Fishers passed a levy, but it was $5M with some budget cuts, not $12M and undo all budget cuts. Carmel is spending property taxes to operate the arts center and other non-governmental functions. Otherwise, they would have enough money to run the schools and perform other governmental functions.

The median home value in Carmel is $251,400. The levy would increase property taxes on this home by $17.61 a month, $211.43 a year. For a $500,000 house, it would increase taxes by $39.32 a month, $471.92 a year. For a $750,000 house, it would increase taxes by $62.56 a month, $750.79 a year.

We moved to Carmel several years ago. We chose Carmel primarily for the schools. Now, we have two children that have graduated at Carmel HS and received academic scholarships and are in college. We have one daughter at Carmel High School and she loves the school, fellow students and her teachers. Yes, we are involved with the children and homework, sports, etc. But we give much of the credit to the wonderful teachers that care so much for our children. I would hate to see so many of them be forced to leave through cuts. It would be a shame for the class sizes to grow again as they did last year when we had to cut 19 teachers. If this continues our school system will get much worse and our property values will fall quickly. We are voting YES tomorrow, May 4 and hope you do the same. Vote YES, YES, YES

What difference does it make to any of you non-Carmel idiots? It would seem to me that this the business of Carmel tax payers, not those from Indy, Zionsville, etc.

It is a waste of time to comment to those that wish to hate and scorn.

So, instead I will invest my time voting YES and make sure others in Carmel vote YES to save our class sizes, teachers and property values.

Vote YES, YES, YES

We lost 19 teachers last year to budget cuts. Class sizes increased and will increase by much, much more if another 35+ teachers are cut again.

A YES vote ensures quality teachers remain in our schools for our children and will help to raise or property values.

It's an easy decision for those of us that care about our children, schools and homes in Carmel.

Look to the bottom of the ballot and vote YES.

Vote, YES, YES, YES

I am very aware that the teachers don't have a contract and haven't had one for two years.

But, teachers will NOT be cut when the referendum passes.

Keep our teachers, keep our schools strong, and keep our property values up.

Vote YES, YES, YES.

Carmel has the lowest property taxes in the county. Even if the referendum passes, property taxes will still be the lowest in Hamilton county.

Taxed to death? Hardly
