Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Editorial: Out West?


Does Kimball really need two elementary schools?

Logic would suggest a negative response, as students and staff from West will reportedly fit into space at Mary Lynch. But the thought of leaving Kimball with another empty shell must be a cause for concern.

We acknowledge that budgets generally rule in these matters. Kimball Public Schools receives no equalization funds from the state, giving administrators little room for maneuver.

Yet we have no enthusiasm for the alternative--however necessary. The city already features too many ghostly reminders of its more populous past.

Ultimately logic will likely win out over nostalgia. Kimball residents must, however, take the opportunity provided to voice their opinions, pro or con.

For those who receive this paper on Wednesday, we urge you to attended the public forum on the future of West Elementary School, scheduled for 7 p.m. at the McNees Auditorium.
