If witches and goblins don't scare you, how about nearly four pages of Open Forums on next Tuesday's school levy referendums?
Brainerd Dispatch readers sounded off in unprecedented numbers as the deadline passed Tuesday for comment on school operating levy referendums. There are 59 Open Forums on the topic in Wednesday's paper, and the newspaper devoted four pages to letters to the editor on the subject.
School levies have been the dominant topic of letter writers for several weeks and writers appeared eager to register their two cents' worth in Wednesday's paper. The Dispatch traditionally cuts off opinions on upcoming elections a few days in advance to provide a cooling-off period before the voters head to the polls.
Voters in the Brainerd, Crosby-Ironton and scores of other Minnesota school districts will go to the polls Tuesday to vote yes or no on school operating levy referendums.
