Save your money

   Riverview School District has again decided for the fourth time (yes, they also tried in '94) to get a stadium at Cedarcrest High School. They seem to forget they have a stadium in Carnation. In attendance at the two public hearings held on Aug. 18 and 19 were five people. Not one coach, not one athletic director, not a soccer association representative or one little league rep. This is the BIG interest. This is ridiculous.
   They have no figures on cost of maintenance for these state-of-the-art fields. I'm sure it doesn't matter since they don't maintain the fields they do have. Only when backed up against the wall and with cash given to them by the City of Carnation did they bother to fix the Howard Miller field.
   Save your money. You will soon be hit up to build a new school and for a technology levy (School Board minutes of Aug. 25) Vote no in November.
