The county supervisors really will save us money when they put DHS offices to the courthouse to save us money. We need more conservative spending - concerns with our taxpayer's moneys.

Our school board spent five times the insurance re-embersement to imrpove track not needed till next April. What about bus barn? for buses? and repair barn? Put off waiting on AEA location – that is a bad location and will cost more to develop or did they spend that money, too?

I hope school board will not invest in the safe room gym – the gov funds – according to budget hearings – say we are in big trouble. Are we prepared for across-the-board cuts? Even last year gov programs lack funding – expenses, fuel – everything will continue to go up. We will need that money in reserve. What happens if Middle East explodes – fuel goes way up – we are already dealing with problems of inflation.
