“Yeah. Olathe has one, and it seems to work for them. It would save the district money in the long run.”

“Where are they going to build it? It seems like the people with the least amount of money and power always have to pay. They need to figure out where to build it and make it more egalitarian.”

“I think it’s a good idea. When there was only one high school the concern was that splitting the schools would create a rivalry. If they had a place to play together, maybe it wouldn’t split the town up.”

“I think there’s too much sports going on in this town. They should put that money into keeping schools open and filling potholes.”
