  1. Thank goodness we’re going to get some fresh blood into that school board! Whoever on the board pushed for that multi-million dollar stadium (that is vacant most of the year, and cost more than the new school next to it) should have been voted out a long time ago. You could argue that the voters approved that stadium, but that’s not the whole story. That new stadium was forced down our throats because the same bond issue was bundled with some badly needed new schools, and voting against it would have badly hurt our kids. Every time I drive down Pecan street and see those two full-sized school stadiums on BOTH sides of the road, across the street from each other, I am reminded of this MEGA mistake by the school board.
