Rant & Rave - Feb. 8, 2013

Live Oak — Republicans are just as bad as democrats now that they have started letting all the illegals come in. We need a real conservative like Sarah Palin to stand up for us real americans against the anti-americans in both parties and stop democrat and republican socialism that is giving our nation to the illegals!


How will the names of the three elementary schools be determined should we go with three pre-k through fifth grade schools? Please DO NOT have them all begin with Suwannee and some direction following Suwannee. Name them after people or use nature or some other idea to establish the names of the schools. When will we know the new names and please don't make all the schools have the bulldog as their mascot. The school board office told us the names would be chosen after reconfiguration, if approved. - Editor


Considering the SMS and SHS schools, it would seem BEST to have the primary, elementary, and intermediate schools to remain just as they are NOW! If not then the SMS will experience a HUGE challenge when all the students from three different schools (who will NOT have gone to school with) make the transition to SMS.


I've attended both meetings concerning the reconfiguration of the Live Oak elementary, intermediate, and primary schools. The PowerPoint presentation at both meetings where basically the same. There was MUCH information on WHY WE SHOULD RECONFIGURE AND NO INFORMATION INCLUDED ON WHY WE MIGHT WANT TO KEEP THE PRESENT MODEL WE HAVE!


As it stands now with there being a Suwannee Primary, Suwannee Elementary, and Suwannee Intermediate school, all students have the exact chance of attending the Suwannee Elementary new building, the Suwannee Primary built in 1976, and the Suwannee Intermediate school built in 1967. Students would be treated equitably as they are now.
