Vote yes for covered court at school

Posted: Wednesday, September 24, 2008

It was brought to my attention at the Floyd Dryden Middle School open house that a measure will be on our municipal election ballot. I apparently missed the article in the Empire that reported the Assembly moved to ask voters to fund a covered, 100-foot, basketball-outdoor covered court at Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School.

It would cost the local taxpayers a total debt of $65,000 and the balance funded by the state. It will cost the property owner only $2 for every $100,000 of assessed value.

My granddaughter and I do remember many days when she never got outside for some good fresh air because of the rain and snow. I will drive by Dzantik'i Heeni on Saturday with my grandson, Hunter, who attends Floyd Dryden, to check out the inequity of the playground, because I want him to be supportive of how his voice and judgment is a vote away.

Please support this bond for our students and Lemon Creek residents as we have at Floyd Dryden that has covered outdoor areas which many have used. Vote "yes." I am.
