Letter to the Editor
To the Editor:
I am a sophomore at KHS, an honors student and a two-sport
athlete. I’m writing to express concerns relative to the Keystone
School District levy. In January, the school board decided to put
up a 7.95 millage levy, citing speci?c programs and teaching po-
sitions that would be eleminated it the levy does not pass in May.
Passage of the levy would gurantee the school district’s ability
to continue offering many different classes and extracurricular
activities. Students can be heard discussing their futures and how
those plans would be negatively affected by another failed levy.
Many also talk about the necessity of AP and other college-prep
classses. Colleges today are looking for students who are more
than the typical student in a traditional school environment. Keystone CFO Susan Bement, Linda Hyland and State Audi-

The Grafton Grangers met on April 23. The meeting was held
at 6:30 p.m. in the Grafton Community Room. Several of the

books were passed out at this meeting. At the end of this meeting,
the whole club had fun making butter in jars. An awesome team
