Does anyone actually pay anymore? We're at 75% or more free/reduced lunch in Rockdale. What's the rate in Newton?
Why should he be joking? I don't know how hold these 'young men' were, but theft is theft, and they should be charged with it.
I'm not donating anything anymore to organizations where I do not know who the recipients are. I will be helping out relatives who I know for certain need assistance - but I feel that there are too many working the system, voting in favor of more government benefits for themselves, and relying on handouts rather than trying to better themselves or take personal responsibility. Neither will I volunteer for these charities -- I, too, have participated in charitable events where the recipients were demanding and outright rude about what they received. But it was this election that has changed my mind about a lot of things, especially the election in Rockdale, and I will not donate blindly the way I have in the past. And I know a lot of people who feel the same way.
The median income for Newton is around $44,000. If you are making less than half -- or less than $22,000 -- are you financially able to keep up a house? Putting people in houses is one thing, but if they can't care for them or keep up the payments for taxes, insurance, utilities, etc., then what's going to happen down the road?
Where is the library director in all of this?
