In his review, Superintendent Chuck Adams began by saying that the district’s $16.4 million general fund budget still has a few holes to fill – especially when it comes to flexible focus funds.

    “The saloon is a liar. It promises good cheer and sends sorrow. It promises prosperity and sends adversity. It promises happiness and sends misery.... It is God’s worst enemy and the devil’s best friend.” - Billy Sunday

    The issue of alcohol has always been a controversial one within the Christian community. Did Jesus make, or advocate the use of, intoxicating wine? Is having an occasional drink really that big of a deal? These are certainly valid questions that committed Christians have asked over the years.
