Well, you have summed up the problem pretty well with your post. Your kids "need" it, so it's OK to spend the money. We will never get control of spending until EVERY ONE realizes we can't have every thing we want.
Taxes will be increasing next year. There are many people without a job, people without a raise in years, people who took pay cuts to keep their job, and you want to spend tax money on artificial turf. And the worst part is you feel justified since down the road they built a new school. We are doomed if every one has your philosophy.
Artificial turf for every school in the county, it's only fair!!!!!
