10 years ago 1998 This week in history from The Arlington Times archives

n Location, location, location. That seems to be the issue facing Arlington School District voters next Tuesday. Do we keep the high school in town or build a new school out of town? The Arlington School Board believes the best solution is to take the school out of town. the board is asking voters on May 19 to approve a plan to sell $37.9 million in bonds to pay for the construction of a new 1,600-student high school 1.5 miles northeast of town on SR 530. This is the third time in the last two years a similar proposal has been placed on the ballot. It differs from previous proposals because only the high school project is addressed. Two previous bond proposals in February and September of last year ?included a high school out of town as well as remodeling and renovating Presidents Elementary and the current high school site for use as another school facility. Although the high school stands alone this time, the board stresses this proposal is the first step, construction-wise, to solving a population boom at all grade levels. Another bond proposal to pay for remodeling, renovating and/or building new facilities for the lower grade levels is expected in the next year, once board members agree on grade configuration at the other schools.

In a recent letter to the editor I warned of the law of unintended consequences when it came to changes made for the sake of fighting global warming. If you were paying close attention to the news, you would notice that we are already starting to see some of these consequences. Food prices have soared as grain crops are diverted to biofuels as directed by government law in some countries and influenced by subsidies in others. Land once used to grow food is now being used to produce ethanol. The law of supply and demand has kicked in raising prices. Food riots have erupted in Africa and Asia.
