"Spelling, schmelling. Who cares when too many times the pronunciation is no match 2 the spelling. It is a game 4 nerds with no great purpose or value. It creates an opportunity 4 those who dwell on it to criticize those who leave small stuff in the dust. Great minds dwell on math, science, respect 4 each other and proper care 4 the earth."

Legend, just don't let PJinfinity hear you say this...

It should have been on the June ballot to be fair and honest. It's a shame and a scam on ND people again.

Either time they had early voting at the court house a full week before the vote. Doesn't matter really the MDN website trolls will slide back into Grandstands and Obama talk anyway. Except for legend-in-own-mind that can stay on topic either way

Let me get this straight, in Dec having the vote at the schools was a conspiracy because teachers could vote at work. So they moved it too central location and now it's too hard to get too.

It should be a concern. With 1 voting place how are the older retired people that this vote affected supposed to get to the polls. This is the first time I heard of such a thing when traditionally on such a vote the many schools are the voting places. This is a good lesson for the kids on behalf of the school board and Volmer, if you can't get what you want legitimately then use any means necessary to attain it.

Would a yes voter tell me their opinion of our state who did not offer to pay our oil impact school needs while they are loaded with money. The same state gave us $17 million for a grandstand. They prefer corp. welfare to schools. To vote 4 those state people and then vote yes on the school bond is proof that so many voters can be led by the nose. bengazi talk spouts misinformation and many of their listeners are so sucked in they bark and yell endlessly about the left--but don't touch their social security and medicare. Have u noticed the left will talk politics in a calm voice?

Your post teaches kids to stay in school -- because people who don't know how to spell are a constant embarrassment to themselves.

"We know that for a fact from Omamacare..... with Omamacare, we are truly moving forword ..."

______________

For a fact, huh?

You Neanderthals can't tell the difference between a local school bond and national legislation on insurance affordability.

Worse yet, you're too stupid to even know how little you know.

Well, stupidity has a price.

You sit on here all day regurgitating the talking points of your corporate FOX masters while the Republicans pick your pockets.

Republicans love the lack of Democratic voter turnout in non-presidential election years. Those are the only election that they believe count. Take 2008; a fluke, 2012; got lucky, 2010; WE THE PEOPLE!!!!

When u ask young people why they don't vote; a typical answer is "because it doesn't matter", "they will do what they want regardless". They have been trained to accept non-representative Gov't. Agree with the editorial. The majority of our citizens do not trust the city/county Gov't. and they show it. The next flood should open those eyes still closed.
