To the Editor: There is enough money in the community to raise money for things we need. We can get technology in many different ways, fundraisers, school loans. This is just one way to rope voters in.

Dear readers and all who support excellent schools,
Having attended all Spring Lake Public Schools meetings from February-May 2013, and more recently the public meetings on October 16 and 23, I am convinced voters are being asked to support an idea more than a plan.
To the Editor: The Spring Lake School Bond coming up for vote is asking for residents that have a home value of $120,000 to pay an additional $34/year for a brand new elementary school complex and new athletic fields in addition to other needed improvements.
The mission of the Tri-Cities Historical Museum is to collect, interpret, preserve and educate. As a nonprofit organization, it is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 12 members who serve three-year terms, and who can serve a maximum of two consecutive terms. Board members are elected annually on a rotating basis.
We’ve heard a frequent comment in the Tri-Cities of late: If the ideas for the boardwalk, the Coast Guard Festival or the Musical Fountain were to be introduced today rather than decades ago, none of them would get the green light.
