When crimes are "committed" they cant tell either. There's lots of un solved crimes out there. Which means there's lots of criminals on the loose. Now back to you

Thousands of people, men, women, and children alike are killed by guns or drunk drivers and they call that " bussiness as usual "

First of all how do know that someone knocking someone out is poverty stricken? Second I'm pretty sure that there was poverty in the inner cities long before you saw anything about this socalled knockout game. You just stay in your house with your aluminum foil hat and you'll be fine. They would have a field day with you

It's not the citizens of a "third world" country that you have to worry about stealing your four wheeler, or your guns it's your neighbors that are hooked on " meth" or prescription pain pills

My comments were and are strictly about support for passing a levy to support education. Once again, looking at the most recent census, your comment regarding other flooding the community have no factual basis. The race and ethnicity make up of Tucker County, has absolutely no bearing on better academics for Tucker County and support of a excess levy. Every comment I have read from you are purely bias based on your personal views and are not supported by factual information.

I do throw out the 'deprived area" comment, being that the school system in Tucker County is a deprived area. Look at the recent State Test scores, that backs the claim. However, you fail to make the connection that having a top notch education system supports thriving communities, which attracts businesses with better paying jobs. Perhaps, an opportunity may be created for you to improve your socioeconomic status in the community and actually make a difference.

The more money that gets thrown to school boards, the less smarter the kids get. SOMETHINGS wrong with this but you all still just want to throw money at the problems. Well, the public says NO FREAKING MORE!!!

The article wasn't about the providing for the athletic programs. The article is requesting support by voting in favor of the levy to provide educational opportunities to a deprived area of the Tucker Co. You may also do research that proves afterschool activities whether its football, basketball, track, ski/biking etc, decreases youth’s chances of criminal behavior and poor health, improvements in academics and community involvement. Investing money into education, provide education opportunities to youth and reduces future dependence on Government Subsidies such as welfare and Social Security. Your arguments to pay for an excess levy are unfound. I don’t use government funded programs but pay for them. I’m sure I am paying for a program or two that you use. That’s the problem and the cause of decay in the local communities, its lack of opportunities and community involvement. Tucker Co has always shown great pride in its achievements in Education and Sports.

Why is it that not that long ago students were smarter and the cost of schooling them was LESS---way less?

Money does NOT equal smarter education.

Why is it that 'parents' can homeschool their children at a miniscule cost of what public schools demand.....yet turn out more brilliant and exceptional students with IQ's more advanced???

More of this ($$$$) does not equal more intelligent students.

We get it; GOVT doesn't!!!

How much is the excess levy. What does it cost the taxpayer. How much does it bring into the schools a year. How do students benefit? How does excess levy help the football team, and is that a good use of hard earned taxpayer money.
