In reference to Prop 3, the multipurpose building,(indoor practice field) Albritton has stated "The facility would only be built if voters also approved Proposition 1 for the new high school".

Why is this? Why wouldn't it be built if the other two propositions failed and Prop 3 passed? Because the multipurpose facility that King Traylor wants can not be built for the $2.1 million dollars. BUT, with the passing of Prop 1 with it's inflated cost projection, Slick Rick would be able to use those excess funds to build the Traylor Castle. Even if Prop 3 fails, the funds will "miraculously" be available from money "saved" by cutting corners on the High School project. Isn't that right Rick? Kinda like the scam you pulled when building the new Elementary School.

The upgrade DID Cost the Taxpayers !! No one donated the money so it was our Tax Dollars !!

Mis Informed my friend and Taxes will go up more than the 26 cents they propose.

They need to be terminated for even suggesting this 36 million dollar Bond !!!

Firstly, the upgrades at Buckeye Stadium did not cost the taxpayer a dime. Sadly, it is one of the few ways for the School District to get Full Community support. Secondly, I have never heard of a School District that only taxes those that have actively enrolled students. If it exists, you may consider moving threre and be quiet happy. As far as Upshur County, you can always leave, and move to greener pastures. It is ashame the Education is not valued, nor is a priorty for so many. I am sure it will be the downfall of America.

It is obvious you that you do not know what you are talking about.

This District is about FOOTBALL no Academics .

It amazes me that this brainwashing is so effective.

You pay it buddy we will not. We are moving! To greener Pastures and less Hillbillies!!

Since J. Traylor arrived; more money has been spent on f'ball than academics. Look at our school scores!~ Do we have to beat Spring Hill so badly??

First off the upgrade to the stadium cost the taxpayers zero dollars, and it has nothing to do with the needs of a new high school facility. Secondly, one would guess you never grace buckeye field. I don't know a school district were only those that currently have students enrolled pay the taxes to support the entire district. If that does in fact exist, that may be a better place for you to reside. If you don't like Upshur County, then leave. It is a shame that Education is not valued or a priorty with so many. It will probably be the downfall of America.

Wrong.... It cost us BIG!!! football revenue goes into general fun. Also, the original was refinanced. That ran the 30 yr note into longer years. That cost taxpayer a tidy sum.

I well i already know I will be voting Against any tax increase . If they need a ned high school and other thing why waste money on a new press box and field turf. I don't think anyone without a child in school should be paying school taxes

I agree J D,,, But that is just it,,, when a government is formed it has been down hill every since,, as people think they provide all these wonder things,,, but the fact of the matter is,, We are taxed on every thing,,, even the land you think you own,,, you never do,,,because if you do not pay the disastrous taxes on that property, then they can take it away from you,,,

Again this county,, says it is broke,,, and again it allows raises to the appraisal district office,,, want to raise the school taxes,.. when they are just barely keeping the info-structure in the county going,,,

They can only sell property to wetbacks and people who are uninformed to the fact this is a joke of a county,, and in the end they will get screwed by it,,,
