It is a matter of give and take. The average CFL has 1.8 mg of Hg(Mercury) for an incandescent bulb it will use and average of 5.8 mg Hg from coal burning plants. In the near future LED bulbs will be cheaper, and no Hg. If you do have CFL's when they burn out, send them to a recycling center. If you break one, check out http://www.energystar.gov/ia/partners/promotions/change_light/downloads/Fact_Sheet_Mercury.pdf

Nice letter and I agree on the most part. The high school band and choir does an outstanding job, as well as speech and debate, art, FFA etc. The high school athletic teams are funded differently than the band. They get their budget money from the gate of the athletic events. No general fund money. They DO NOT get uniforms every year. They are on a rotation 4-5 years I believe for varsity, those are then handed down and so on. I know that the uniform my daughter had as a freshman was 13 years old, and it is still being used.. It is wrong that the band does not have new uniforms though. Keep up the great work all of you at MCHS.

Now the girls team had their banquet Monday. No coverage? They are the 4A STATE ACADEMIC CHAMPS. All 9 juniors and seniors were named to the all state academic team.

I think the city missed a perfect chance for a cheap rec center alternative when they did not help fund the middle school gym addition. They would have had access to TWO full gyms, a cardio room, locker rooms. Meeting space would also have been there. I know now, that I will not vote for a rec center, if the city does not feel they can put up some surplus to pay for access to a nice facility, why should I pay taxes on something I will not use? My kids are active on their own, sports at the high school and summer activities. My wife and I walk every night and ride our bikes so we do not need this.

I agree with X. I pay State Parks on OHV fee for trails, mtn bikes also use these. Bikes can pay a fee that could help pay fees for signs etc.
