Every week, we ask area residents a question. The question may be serious, or it may be light-hearted. We will print the answers we receive here.
For this week’s questions we asked:
If the Ava R-I School District has to tighten its belt due to the economy, where should they cut first?
Football. – Neva Nicewarner
Definitely not the arts. – Linda Curtis
That is a hard choice, because every one of the extra activities at school is very important to at least one of our students. I feel sorry for the one who has to make that decision. – Becky Johnson
Well grandma always said, “When in doubt, cut the fat guy, because he has the biggest belt.” It’s a tough choice no matter what you decide to do. – William Albright
I think not replacing staff when they retire is ridiculous. I would cut secretaries, aides, support staff, coaches, assistants and administration first. – Mark Evans
