Noted and passed - Nov. 17, 2014

• Once again, we mention the good work of Brian Mayes in this space.

The decisions made will have significant and lasting impact.

Reader: KCSD ‘missing the boat’

In regard to your article in Friday's (Nov. 7) paper about the defeat of the KCSD referendum. It would seem that the school district is missing the boat. Mrs. Few and CANT have obviously scoped this whole thing out and feel they can operate and expand the school district to every ones satisfaction within the current budget. The school district should take advantage of this knowledge and perhaps have a public meeting where they describe their program.
