A convenient excuse

Rappahannock Record, April 10, 2014

There is lots of talk in the community regarding the proposed boat ramp on Simmons Lane. While I am neither for nor against the boat ramp, I have been reading some of the letters to the editor as well as hearing a lot of opinions about this issue.

I find it very interesting that many of the people who are against the boat ramp are saying that the county needs to be using the money (that has not even been allotted for a boat ramp yet) to fund Lancaster County Public Schools.

Where were all of these people when our schools were in turmoil a few months ago? Were they so concerned about the welfare of the county children when it did not directly affect them?

I hope everyone all of a sudden so concerned about the school system will be supportive when we finally start the process of building desperately needed new schools.
