Not this taxpayer TORCH! Being part of a family that has lived and supported Baldwin area for generations,since the late 1800's, your attitude and ones like yours make me sick! The bond issue only helped the new citizens of Baldwin for new schools that they never planned ahead for over crowding. These two schools that were closed have and were the back bones of USD 348 in support of Baldwin Schools in town. How long have you lived here? I am guessing not as long as the generations coming from Vinland and Marion Springs area who have suffered hardships over the many years but continued to support Baldwin USD 348 area. Hopefully if it is possible new board members can stop this mess before next fall.

newsie- GET OVER YOURSELF, I am sure you are NEW to Baldwin given your blog name! Us "country folk" as you call us are the ones who have kept this area going during the bad times. It must have been good enough for you NEW folks to want to come to Baldwin and live. WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF NEWBIE'S COMING IN AND TAKING OVER TELLING WHAT WE WERE DOING IS WRONG AND YOU KNOW BETTER. We "COUNTRY FOLK" as you call us must have been doing something right with the small town living to include smaller country schools instead of large troubled schools for your children.Students having more one on one assistance with there education. Those of us who have lived here for generations have a problem with some one like you who come to Baldwin acting like you are better than us. I am sure small minded people like you are going to find something wrong with this post, spelling, etc... So I will say ahead of time I am pissed about your blog and really do not care if I have made some mistakes in this post.

We are so tired of reading posts or hearing put downs about this town and how things were done in the past. Why did someone like you and others move here anyway if it was so wrong, we have had enough of your put downs!
