Now that at least one of the victims has died, this low life should not be allowed bail, he should be taken outside and executed. What was his BAC? Has he had previous?

5.8 Million dollars from FEMA to build a replica of the Blenheim Covered bridge. While preserving history is nice. We all wonder why our federal government is so far in debt!
Here is a reason why. Sometimes we need to let bygones be bygones.

If the parents want to file a lawsuit!!! This incident appears to have over before the parents knew about it. While emotionally, the parents might be affected, There was absolutely no financial loss imposed on them by this incident. Why should they capitalize on this when all it is going to do is cost the taxpayers since the school is a publicly funded institution. If there was physical harm done to the child, that would be another story. One can only guess that these parents are looking to find a way to get money without working for it.

The cost of this new library will be at least $150.00 a year between the paying of the loan and the increased operating costs associated with heating, lighting and otherwise maintaining the facility. And I am one of the lower ones. Those with homes worth 3 to 4 hundred thousand will pay at least $300.00 a year, some much more. Thats a lot of money for those who are retired with limited income, and myself, I am planning to retire this year. How many years will this be financed? Noticed in their website they encouraged people to have children away at college get an absentee ballot. The kids won't care, they are not paying property taxes yet, and don't understand the impact. Note that they did not encourage senior citizens to vote. I hope people vote NO.

I also can not see the need for a library that costs $3.1 million in a area of 7000 residents. Too much money. They don't need the taj mahal. Build something smaller but make it expansion friendly if a need can be proven to do so.

This library proposal just burns me. First of all the town of Galway decided that it could stick us who do not live in the town but in the Galway CSD with paying for something most of us will not use. $50.00 per $100,000 of accessed value! In the town of Providence where I live, when you factor in the equalization rate, this going to cost me about $100.00 per year. And I will be one of the lower ones. There are homes and properties in this town worth much more than mine.As a person planning retirement in the near future, I don't need this. Vote NO!!!
