I think it's great the the county is once again going to dump on us! While Green kids go to school in trailers, the commissioners want to give the criminals first class accommodations. Wish all you clowns would resign.

I have always said they should turn that building into the school.It would make a nice school for our kids and theres metal detectors there already so we wouldnt have to worry so much.
