Let's do what's best for the kids

I recently moved to this community from Whatcom County and have a child in the Riverview School District.
   I am stunned and amazed that the almost brand-new high school of Cedarcrest has no athletic fields. Even the smaller schools of the Whatcom County league have football, baseball, and soccer fields.
   From what I understand, this bond will cost approximately $26 a year for a $200,000 home. Most of us spend more on a pair of shoes. I've heard there are underlying issues between the city of Duvall and Carnation. From an outsider's point of view, I say get over it and do what's best for our kids.
