Carrie Requist 1 month ago on Our View: School board should avoid rush to polls

I am not worried that we will keep having major school projects every 6-7 years because of "unexpected circumstances." Rebuilding Soda Creek was short sighted and met only the immediate needs, not the growth. The rebuild only added 4 new classrooms to Soda Creek from what it previously had (from 24 to 28 classrooms). At the same time, an addition was made to Strawberry Park to give it 12 new classrooms, for a total of 16 new elementary classrooms. Had we repaired Soda and built a new school out in the Steamboat II / Silver Spur area, there would have been at least 25 new classrooms at that time and we would not be in the situation we are currently in. Many people called this out in 2006 when the planning was being done, but they lost and now we are suffering the consequences of the short sightedness of previous district administrations. I back this school board and superintendent is doing the research, listening to the numbers and building the schools that we need for the district to be able to house all its students.

Unfortunately for both Austin and the rest of us Cal fans, California actually lost the last football game of the season to BYU although you did get the score right.

I have no idea if the gorillas on horseback were men or women. It was a bit surprising but worked ok when the road was blocked off, but when they were back once Hwy 40 was open and they were riding on the sidewalk, it was very uncomfortable how they were interacting with pedestrians; made worse that you couldn't see the riders' eyes to know if they saw you or were going to run you down. I was happy to get past them.

Just to clarify, I did not call in the complaint - I was well home and away from downtown by that point, but they made me uncomfortable earlier and I could see why people might call it in as dangerous.

For walking on ice, I specifically keep my hands in my pockets so I don't reach out and break my wrists. Much better to fall on my butt or hip or even shoulder than wrist.

There is no where for these kids to seek in the district. We shove all sorts of other things at them when understanding how technology works is something that might actually be useful for them.
