Say goodbye to McDonalds.

I'm not surprised. The service is iffy and the orders are rarely right.

Most young people today take no pride in their work. No matter what it is. They want to show up and get a paycheck. It really doesn't work that way kids! This is what happens to the business when you think that way!

For the young people that were helpful, professional, and truly seemed to care when my order was screwed up, my heart goes out to you! Rest assured, you should have no problem finding a new job!

To the owners...SHAME ON YOU! You should have been more involved.

KUDO's to Mr. Dorathy and the Board of Education! Savings are important, but the safety of the children of our community is so much more important! THANK YOU!!!

USD 348 Performing Arts Center set to open ahead of schedule

Is this a joke? It is beautiful, I'll give you that! But it's seating capacity is only slightly larger than the old auditorium? I thought seating was the issue?!?

Unbelievable! $4 million dollars and we still can't sit down! Sure am glad it's pretty!

Letters to the Editor

I must say that I disagree with this being "a direct result of the board closing the outlying schools". This is a direct result of misspending (for years) by USD# 348 Administration & the Board of Education. They can no longer rob Peter to pay Paul.

Unfortunate situations got them where they are financially, and the recent State and Federal budget shortfalls have not helped matters. However, if rumors are true, Mr. Dorathy got a raise with his recent two year extension. If that is indeed true, they clearly have not learned from their mistakes.

Heaven help the teachers next year when they ask us to bring in reams of paper, dry erase markers, etc! NOT HAPPENING! The teachers aren't the ones that created this mess...but they are the ones that will ultimately pay the price for it!

'City folks' vs 'outlying school folks' attacking each other is not helping the children. I don't know why this happened. It should have always been an issue of US, the tax payers, parents, and concerned citizens vs THEM, USD# 348 Administration & the Board of Education.
