Pre-kindergarten again? On June 3, there was another article about money from property owners for this baby-sitting service. It’s the parents’ responsibility to teach these kids. The people that own property are taxed heavy for the schools. Most don’t even have kids in school. I say exempt the elderly from property tax so they can have some chicken to try to cut with a plastic spoon.

I feel most property owners feel the same way I do. We worked hard all our lives to own a piece of land. The parents need to take responsibility. We voted this down before.

Don't settle for a preview.
