Time for some middle ground in Lynd

September 1, 2011
Marshall Independent

The crusade for a new school in Lynd came to a crashing halt Tuesday when voters in the school district voted down building a proposed $11.5 million school. The vote wasn't close - 83 percent said "no" - and the sheer number of voters who were against building a new school tells a story of small-town residents just not ready to commit thousands of tax dollars per year to a new school. Who can blame them? Today's economy notwithstanding, residents of Minnesota are already shuddering at the thought of the vanishing homestead tax credit and Lynd residents, had the vote gone through, would've been hit with a double-whammy of taxes.
