As such meetings go, the May 17 Mountain View school board public budget hearing, steeped in controversy and emotion, passed quite cordially and uneventfully. Devoid of the yelling and swearing which often accompany divisive issues the board, administration, and visitors all comported themselves with dignity, patience, and understanding. Multiple students, current and former, politely waited their turn to be heard; the young voices heard throughout the evening, perhaps outweighed those of the adult population. The issue which brought a crowd large enough to be the largest some board members had seen, was one both simple and complex in nature. The district is going into the 2010-2011 school year with a proposed budget deficit of around a million dollars. The controversial question was what to do to remediate this.
Correspondence reviewed at the May 19 Susquehanna Boro Council meeting included a letter from Cub Scout Pack 81. This year marks the 100th birthday of Scouting, and the pack would like to celebrate the birthday by planting a tree in honor of boro resident Ira Reynolds, America’s oldest Boy Scout, who is 108 years young. The Pack requested council’s approval of the plan, as well as an appropriate site to plant the tree. There was no question about approving the request, just a question of where the best site would be. It was agreed that the site should be in the downtown area, where it would be visible to all. Some possibilities were discussed; and will be discussed further at the next committee meeting.
