I agree with the Vox Pop Department of Transportation. Our area drivers need some education. I'd like to remind everyone of a basic traffic law. It is illegal to pass on the right shoulder. A solid white line means stay within the lines. I live on Highway 210 between Brainerd and Ironton. When returning to my home from the east, I have to make a left-hand turn into my driveway. Can you imagine the fear when I look in my rearview mirror to see a semi passing me on the shoulder?
Wake up and smell the coffee
It is amazing how people don't realize that their actions are going to have repercussions. Parents complaining about crowded schools, crowded parking lots and kids having to wait outside and lost activity opportunities. Wow, seems to me we were told this was going to happen if the referendum failed. I think the school district should have cut all activities and implemented a two-mile walk radius and saved all the money they could've saved because that's what the community that voted no deserves. Wake up and smell the coffee.
