Don that's great. Just because we have differences doesn't mean that we can't get along. Some people want the bridge, a few don't. I'm for it, that's the way it is.

I think if the federal money isn'tspent here it will be spent in another town in southeast. I,could be wrong. I still think even a bridge to Canada would be great. I can get to my property by boat. Driving would make the taxes go up and the rest feel that's the price property owners will have to face. I don't think there are any roads to property on Pennock planned. As for the cemetery, I don't believe that any one has been buried there in a very long time. You would have to get a permit I believe and also no fed or state road would go through a cemetery, I am sure everyone has the utmost respect for those that are buried there, and I believe it's on the north end of the island.

Any way enough going back and forth about the bridge. I have greater issues right now to deal with - coaches and sports in our community and the children that are affected by being left behind when they shouldn't be. Who is to blame? Is there favoritism?

If a coach doesn't like the parent should they be allowed to take it out on the kids? Who puts a stop to it if it's so? And if they can't stick up for the kids maybe they should resign. Is that the job of a school superintendent if it is true?
