Letters to the Editor - Nov. 3, 2013


Replace Lamar Elementary. Lamar and I have something in common-we were created in the same decade!  After 58 years of service to children, I believe it is time to build a new campus where young students begin their formative first years of education.

Replace the Mineral Wells High School track. Many people use the track – student athletes, residents and community events. We must address the needed foundation base issues in order to have a usable track for all. 

Make minimal cost renovations at MineralWells Junior High, knowing that it was built in 1963 and will need to be replaced at some point.

I urge you to consider these needs as you decide how you will vote in this election. The children and young people of Mineral Wells deserve a safe, secure and enriching learning environment as they prepare for the future.

Please take time to vote with your heart and your mind.

Vote ‘yes’ on the school bond


Wow! Did I ever have a wakeup call when asked to serve on the MWISD Facilities Study Committee.

I have known that Lamar and the Junior High were really old, unsafe and in desperate need of replacing, but until you walk around and look at every nook and cranny you do not really realize how bad these two schools are.   

We have been able through the years to greatly improve our school buildings and sports facilities; and now we are down to the last two. I am asking you to please vote yes for the Nov. 5th bond election.

We have an old campus that has been renovated way to many times, unsafe campuses that really are a concern to many of us, and because of soil sulphates and inadequate drainage, the community/high school track needs new base, foundation and a drainage system.
