SCHOOLS: Now no time for levy
In reference to the school district upcoming additional levy on real property. The article on Nov. 3 includes a statement that our school leaders could not foresee an economic downturn that is now a global recession. Seems rather odd, since we have been on an economic downturn for quite some time.
