Are Odyssey & Olympia Merging?



 Anonymous said...
Off topic as I do not know how to start a new topic (so Scats feel free to start this as a new topic if that is the right thing to do) but I have heard several Odyssey and Olympia students state that those schools are to be merged into one. At least 3 students for each school, independent of each other, have passed on that news onto me in since mid-December. Any truth to this from what you or your blog readers have heard? My first question back to the students was whether there was going to be re-alignment of the schools making one a middle and the other the high school. Or was there going to be consolidation of the physical facilities. The students did not know the answers to these questions of course...

Fire Taxes Continue To Skyrocket


Fire Districts Continue 

Thumbing Noses @ 2% Cap


Received our tax bill today – town taxes stayed the same. !!! Fire district (Barnard) tax levy only went up 6.7% !!! We are sooo thankful as last year it went up 11.4% – that’s over 18% increase over a 2 year period. At this rate in 2 years we will be paying more in property tax for fire service than we pay to run the whole rest of the town. Companies seeing these figures will be fighting to come here. Makes ya proud doesn’t it? Interested to hear what other fire districts increase is.
