Page 2 Wednesday, May 2, 2012 The Adams County Record F_gi00r's Hcd/0000 before voting. I don't want to pay more in taxes, but I'd like to see students leave CHS with real life skills that can only be taught in a shop environment. If you have a personal grievance with the superintendent or a school board member about prior fiscal spend- ing, then talk to that per- son! Educate yourself as to why decisions are made, it may surprise you. I know it did me. Remember, not all kids are going to go to college. Don't deny the opportu- nity for our children to learn the skills needed to succeed in today's work environment. Co-C/Ta;r,,lan, CozmcYl Shop C,:u';;on Shop Levy Sberiff Race Shop: Small cost, big benefit Dear Editor, Passing a levy to fix the Council High School shop would be very helpful for the students. I understand that people don't like higher taxes, but it is a little to pay for a big dif- ference in the education of students. We will be provided with the work skills for many jobs in today's soci- ety. Once again, I think passing a levy for the shop will help us students greatly. CV he/o Students need shop skills Dear Editor, Passing a levy to fix the Council High School shop would be helpful to teach the students about the skills that are needed to live and work, in a rural area. These skills include woodwogking and fabri- cating. With the help of the community, I think that the students of the Council School District will appreciate the chance to learn such skills. Ca,5 Broa) Cor.;l :6/;,5,6 zh/ Shop classes for hands-on Dear Editor May 15 is coming fast, and I'm excited about that date because that is the date that I hope our town can pass a levy to allow funding for a shop teacher. There are many reasons our school needs a shop class. A lot of peo- ple, including myself, are hands on learners; we love working on things, and learning how things work. I know I will need these skills in the future because there are a lot of jobs that require these skills, and if we don't get some of them in high school, there are many trade schools that won't accept us with- out any shop experience. Also, many students that struggle with academics in school excel in shop learners classes because it gives a purpose to the math and other academic work they have to do in their proj- ects. So please vote yes for the levy to fund a shop teacher.

Fast, afforaable qualify Zollman too close to old Dear Editor, In the recent past, I have been critical of Sheriff Green and his sec- ond in command, Major Borger. It has been called "the Reign of Fear" I am happy that we have five honest and moral candidates that have cho- sen to run for sheriff. It's about time for a change. I know all the can- didates and I am confi-. dent that most of them will bring back honesty and moral integrity to the sheriff's office. I am finding it hard to decide who I will vote for. Each candidate is well respected in our com- munity. There is only one weak candidate in the race and its only because he is an insider and has actually stated that he admires, respects and emulates Sheriff Green and his administration and so I assume he is okay with the sheriffTs credit card fraud convi, well as the recen ful terminatior plaints and even harassrrfent com[ a female employ ing Sheriff Gree defendant, in wl won a undisclos( ment!

I worked with Capt. Zollman and in my opinion, he is a likable young man but I know that, like the Jail com- mander, he has never been allowed to be an effective department head because of the micro management style of the under sheriff. They could not even order toilet paper without first getting approval from the Major so how can he be expected to lead as sher- iff?.
