So, last night I sent emails to my congressman and both senators.

Yep Cheryl, we use to have booster clubs too. I"m sure the local high school has one. I can't help but wonder why on earth anyone thought this was a good option.
I'll let you know if I see it on the ballot. ;)

oh boy Gail-you just aren't allowed to say anything at all negative about schools and sports-period- in this town or you're anti-American.

Now if it were a temporary tax increase to pave the roads leading to the school and football field most people would probably understand but the field itself? IMO that is over the top!

As I said, the sports boosters and individuals pay for most of that type of thing here.

Oh absolutely football is entertainment here. Basketball is even bigger! My beef with it is the gall of anyone to suggest homeowners pay for the new field with a property tax increase. More than half my taxes already go to the school system and I don't have children in public schools!

I honestly have to wonder what planet some of these elected people have been living on for the last couple of decades. I'm fairly sure that here on earth money doesn't grow on trees.

Do you know where I live there are school officials who are seriously wanting to take a tax increase to the polls and ask tax payers to vote yes on a property tax raise to pay for a new football field so the football team can stay competitive with other schools in it's class? Seriously-they want those of us who own homes to pay for a new football field. What ever happened to the football teams getting out and working/fundraising/taking up a collection/saving money for a new field?

I sit and wonder, At what point in this life did people suddenly begin to think they were entitled to spend someone else's money just because???

I doubt the budget will be balanced because of what I wrote.
