WICHITA, Kan. — Kansas school districts are scrambling to find ways to make up funding after the Governor calls for an addition budget cut of 1.5% for all schools.
“It’s something certainly concerning,” says Renwick School District Superintendent Tracy Bourne. Bourne says he met Friday with department heads asking them to come up with ideas on where they can cut.
Before you feel sorry for these people: Last year they raised the mil levee, and sent around a letter telling us that we had a choice of building them a new gym or building a new class room, but that we only had the choice of building, period.
They received some flak and they sent around another letter telling us we had a choice of a new gym or a new wing, but that we only had the choice of building, they were not going to NOT spend the money..
There are times, as a home owner, that I regret having to pay mil levee taxes to the school districts. You know, being beyond having a child to use the schools and all. Waited a long time to get beyond that particular life style hazard.
Had an attempted robbery at the Co-Op. Couple of pot heads broke into some equipment there. Didn’t take anything and were caught on the main highway going east. Wichita men. Well. Wichita folks. Male. One 19, one 29.
Fellow knows they are physically old enough to be men, but really?
Pity. Too young to screw up a life – off the wrong side the line. Probably never get back on the correct side.
