Fair Game

The library of our local high school is currently being expanded by knocking down an outside wall and building farther outward into a grassy area. This much-needed expansion was supposed to include two new computer labs, one on each side of the expansion, that were fully equipped.

Recently, however, my youngest was told by a very reliable source at school that 1.3 million dollars have already been spent on this project and that the planned computer labs have had to be scrapped as a result. This seems outrageous in light of the amount of work being done. Local taxpayers should immediately demand a full accounting of the project from the school board.

Are our young people, our most precious resource, really to be the latest victims? Apparently everyone and everything are considered fair game. (Now consider carefully who is on the local school board and who is currently running for it.)
