For some crazy reason population growth and abundant good paying jobs are being dragged into the gutter too. What is up with people? This is not a bad thing for our State and smart people don't jump in front of freight trains.

I like how these smaller towns are trying to keep up with wages compared to Minot . OH that's right somebody, community leader, said this wouldn't happen in Minot. Oh please listen to people and to their ideas when they see something. They hit it right on the nose! This is happening in Minot and we need to keep up with wages, advice and schools. But not at the expense of those who are going to have to pay thousands of dollars in property taxes just over a year. No way. It's Minot's fault for not listening when they could have been proactive......

Stop your whining. I hate to pay taxes as much as anyone but making the children suffer is not the answer. These lunches and breakfasts are the only prepared meal some of these kids get. Having a 2 shift system isn't the answer either. Better management at the schools might help and what would surly help is for the state and local governments to give more money to the schools and less to their special interest group and get a new school board and superintendent.
