A huge thank you to you all, and please remember the merchants that support our troops and thank them as you shop in their stores or see them at community functions.

Anita Allen Marine Corps Family Foundation School board member asks what we expect To the Editor: I need to voice my opinion on what is going on with the school district and the school board since I rarely get the opportunity to do so at meetings. I concur with other board members that there are problems in our School District and we need to address and take corrective actions. But how to address and solve these problems will need a greater input from the com- munity, the educators and all board members. In my opinion, we as individual board members should not force our views, values and solutions on other board members without discussions, evaluating facts and sharing ideas. Views from all sides should be heard and given a fair chance to be represented.

They might be the same solutions for the problems but addressed from different sets of values. With that in mind, I have a few questions for the community. Should we write more policies and rules to address certain problems caused by a few, or, should we evaluate current policies that address all the current problems and find ways to enforce them? Shouldn't we work together as a team to come up with better solutions for the betterment of our school district instead of finger-pointing, and arguments? Also, how can we make policies and expect others to follow when we can't even follow our own policies and procedures? New to the Community?

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice or a I am constantly reminded about the history of this community that only 30-40 percent of students go to college. Should we continue with this status quo or should we expect more from the millions of dollars spent every year? If we were to continue with the status quo, then let's be honest with the parents. The community only expects 30-40 percent of the children to go to higher education.

It is money wasted if we have low expectations for our children. Every child should have the opportunity to be taught with the notion they will go to college regardless of status, race and learning abilities. Our children should be reminded to set higher goals in school. So for Christmas, I pray to God to give us the gift of wisdom like he did for Solomon. To help us make smart decisions for our School District favorite charity.
