This is a response to David Wright’s comment on the need to hurry up and combine schools or NOHS will miss out on a once in a lifetime offer.
Quality education only comes once is a very poor comment by NOHS David Wright. Clearwater is in a mess trying to get their schools to agree on anything.
Neligh-Oakdale should not merge with these schools at this time. David is trying to get NOHS into the mix as quickly as he can. His emotions are running too high to get this accomplished. He is playing the cards of a somewhat politician. He uses words like “emotion” and “once in a lifetime.” Also, his numbers on cost is not correct because they are only preliminary costs. I am sure they will go up and up.
Someone once said that “If you want to know what is in a health bill, you first have to pass it.” We do not need to merger with other schools just because of the money angle. There are a lot of other things to consider. Other chances will come along.
Mr. Reinke and Mr. Gilg are correct in that the board is moving too fast. The board needs to answer all the concerns of a merger and not just money. There is no need to be in a big hurry to jump into this mix of schools only because of money and a short time to think about it.
It may take a year to work things out — so be it. Better to be right than sorry.
