Why, yes... I'm a "no" on thre Battle Ground School District levy.

Soon, those of us living in Battle Ground and its environs will be voting, again, on a levy that I earnestly hope will fail, again.

Can't the clowns running the District "get" it?

First, the levy failed last time. So, do they do what they should, and re-refer the levy with a smaller price tag... a less ambitious (Read "less expensive") cost?


Second, have they fired the superintendent, who is only here because, her best efforts notwithstanding, no one else would have her?


Do these people even bother to communicate with the elementary school parents when it was discovered that one of the teachers had been molesting little girls there?


And THEN, they hang Amboy, in the far northern part of the district, out to dry, holding passage of the entire levy hostage as a condition of building their badly needed high school, thus keeping kids off the bus 1.5 hours each way.

$1.6 million for a new stage with retractable seating in one of the high school's auditoriums?

I don't think so.

So..... yes.... I'm a "no," and I hope you readers in the BGSD will join with me in that decision.

$200 more every year in property taxes so Prairie can have a new track. I don't think so.

I wasn't sure how I should vote this one but you reminded me of things that bothered me in the past. No it is.
