A matter of public record
To the editor: In reference to Sherry Shaheen’s letter, “A nightmare of a bill” in the April 27 issue of The Press, I would like to comment further. Very few persons I have had contact with realize what Ohio House Bill 66 was, the tremendous damage it has done to the funding of public school systems in Ohio and the tax burden it has shifted to property owners. Ms. Shaheen made reference that the financial gains BP and Sun Oil made because of this legislation not being brought to light. This information should be a matter of public record, although it may be buried as the footnote in their annual reports.

We have a problem
To the editor: Oregon City Schools have a budget problem and they want us to solve it for them again.

In all the letters and articles that I’ve read from the school board and the superintendent this year, the five-year budget is what keeps coming up - how they will be at a $20 million deficit by the 2012-2013 school year. How HB 66 has cut into their revenue by $10 million over the past six years.

To the editor: In response to the letter, “Progressive,” I have a one-word response, “Freedom.”

Freedom of seniors to use our roadways, as we have a legal driver license to exercise our right to drive so long as we obey traffic laws. The City of Oregon is absolutely correct to oppose public transportation service in Oregon.
