To the Editor,
Not too many days past, a knock at my front door revealed grammar grade school children selling candy bars. These children were escorted by an adult, ,which is commendable of that dad or granddad, whichever the case may have been. Later, two very young children were observed just before darkness, covering the same area trying to sell candy door to door, along a very busy county road.
Can our schools be in such a dire need of money that this is normal, when our school superintendent is given $10,000 bonus on top of a salary that is already too high?
In my mind I can clearly envision Mr. Hunt backing up to the pay table at the end of the month to collect his reward. Surly he can’t face the paymaster without a red face.
I wonder if he sleeps peacefully at night.
