To The Daily: “Disappointed and ashamed.” These were the words used to describe two people on the Hartselle school board by a member of that same board.
The two people were Randy Sparkman and Venita Jones. These two people were voicing opinions about how much money is being spent on the new school and how we are falling behind on fixing all the problems at the Sparkman Street school so the middle school kids will have a school next year.
There are a lot of things that need to be addressed about the new school before any children are put in there. I will ask the questions most people want answers to: Is there a crack in the foundation? Where are all the cars going to park? Is there water in the auditorium?
We understand some people want their children to graduate from the new school, even if it is not ready, but should we sacrifice their safety for that? I don’t think we should.
Also, what about the roads to handle the traffic? Some of it will be coming out on Alabama 36 and “deadman’s curve.” It’s called that for a reason.
We need to wait until all these issues are resolved and the school is safe for all the young people of Hartselle. That school is not going anywhere. Let’s be patient.
I’d like to thank Mr. Sparkman and Ms. Jones for their concerns about safety, health and the money we’re spending. They need to keep up the good work.
Shame on Jennifer Sittason for airing her feelings about two people trying to do the right thing.
