Thank you for voting

To the editor,

If you voted on the school bond, whichever way, thank you! Unfortunately, three out of four eligible voters did not! Kinda, sorta reminds me of the conversation when Tweedledee asked: "You know what's wrong with this country? It's ignorance and apathy!" To which Tweedledum replied: "No, I don't know and I don't care!"

Schools need attention

To the editor,

Rapid City schools need our attention.

Lamenting over the loss of the bond issue, suggesting that the voters erred, gloating over the results or resubmitting the same proposal to the voters in June will only produce further polarization and waste more time that would be best used to address the problems.

Rapid City schools need our attention.

The challenge for the RCAS Board is to learn from this failure that consensus building prior to drafting a solution is the path to success. Compromise does not mean the abandonment of your principles or surrender to opposition.

None of the folks I spoke with deny that our schools need attention sooner rather than later. Let's resolve to work together to upgrade our facilities, repair the deficiencies and even consider some new building where necessary. This can be accomplished but it will take a spirit of camaraderie thus far we haven't yet seen.

Rapid City schools need our attention. Let's get busy !!!

Ed Randazzo, Rapid City
