well good......i thought our property tax,sales tax were too low. if we start a crisis now, we'll have plenty of time to scare people into giving more money to the govt.

I know it's been a long time since Minot has passed a bond issue but it's time. Too many children in portables and the enrollment growth calls for it. I really hope the people get involved in the process and make the right choice for our kids...please vote yes, I know I will.

This bond issue is much needed. Our schools are becoming so overcrowded with this growth. This is't a matter of scaring people, but informing the public about a problem that exists and will only get worse. The city of Minot had a chance to take care of this a few years ago when it would have been much cheaper and not as rushed. We can't kick it down the road any longer. It is time to get this done for our community.

By the time these kindergarten kids get to high school level the oil boom will be over and a majority of all these people will have moved on to the next big boom. Do not over build! Remember Williston in the first boom!

EVERY study I've seen lately is saying this boom will last at LEAST thirty years so I don't feel we are in danger of overbuilding anytime soon.

We can't just sit back and watch Minot grow to 100,000 people without a plan or land bought for public needs.

I feel we all need to come together to declare "We ARE willing to pay more...".

How else can the children move forword?

The city of Minot is in a money booth with money flying all around like tornadoes and it's yours if you can pluck it out of the air or somebody's pocket.

Referring to our schools as "day spas" is extremely offensive...our teachers do an awesome job and they need to be supported, not chastised. As far as their salaries, I believe they are underpaid with the cost of living in this town and it will become difficult for the district to even hire them if that doesn't change. As far as the bond issue is concerned, take a drive around and look at all the portables around right now. The schools are bursting at the seams and they are in serious need...it's time to step up and vote yes.

Judging by lorexxx's many spelling, capitalization, and other grammatical errors, I won't be taking any of his opinions seriously.

Schools have had extracurricular activities such as sports for a hundred years. Saying they have turned into "day spas" makes no sense.

I'm not in favor of providing breakfast for the kids, I think they should watch their parent(s) get out of bed and prepare it so they can see and learn some responsibility.
