To the editor:

This is in response to the article in the Daily Journal dated March 4, titled “Digging in.”

I don’t know about all the other residents of Franklin, but I for one am getting very tired of hearing about the desperate financial shape of the Franklin school system.

It’s the school system that told us they needed a new $103 million high school because the old high school was too small and would cost too much to repair, and they turn around and refurbish the old high school at a cost of $33 million.

Then the school system tells us they don’t have enough money for staffing and operating the schools. I was in special ed in school and could see this coming. The school system needs to suck it up and learn to live within their means like everyone else — they made their bed and now they need to lie in it.
