ballot measure 68... break out the Kleenex, because here comes the sob stories...

Ballot measure 68 for the May 2010 primary election revises the Constitution allows the state to issue bonds to match voter approved school district bonds for school capital costs and dedicates lottery funds for matching funds and repayment.{ source }


Be prepared for it...

It's worked in the past...

Voters just recently gave more money to the state with measures 56 and 57 because it was "for our children"...

So here's how they're going to try and sell it to you...
“It allows school districts to pass bonds that include critical school infrastructure that’s not currently allowed – like desks and bookcases," said Dana Hepper with the Stand for Children advocacy group in favor of measure 68.{ source }

{*sob*}
those poor little kids... no desks or bookcases to put their books on.

The children already have to stand on a street corner just to pay for money to buy pencils for their classes...

Yes! yes, let's give them some more money out of our are ready strained budgets. But how are we going to do that, the Oregon Constitution already restricted states authority to issue bonds?
“Oregon voters have approved 16 exceptions to this restriction, 14 of which are still in effect. The exceptions allow the state to issue bonds for a variety of purposes, including for home ownership loans to veterans, reforestation of state lands, construction of buildings for state universities and community colleges, housing for the elderly and disabled, pollution controls and seismic rehabilitation of public buildings { source }


It's settled then... let's vote in favor of measure 68. maybe we can even give those poor kids a chair to sit on with their new desk as well.

**SLAP!!!**

Oh sorry, got caught up in it there for a minute.

{Wiping the tears from my eyes}

Passage of measure 68...
“ would allow local taxing districts to occur bonded indebtedness on or after January 1, 2011 and second, the state would issue general obligation bonds to provide funds to be granted or loaned to school districts to finance the capital costs of the school districts...which are defined as the cost of land and other asset associated with acquisition, construction, improvement, remodeling, maintenance and repair.
Capital cost do not include operating costs."{ source }


You decide... personally, I feel that if schools can't function receiving at least $10,000 a year per student from the all funds budget, perhaps, it's time to start doing some auditing and seeing where the money is really going.

Just my opinion.

I suppose it's impolite to point out that Idaho spends a third less per student and has higher standardized test scores.

Faye (Stumps) Stewart, the $1,684,955,468 man
Election time is nearing for County Commissioners of Lane County. Ask Faye Hills Stewart II what the number "1,684,955,468" means. Hint go to http://www2.guidestar.org/ (after you register with Guidestar),

use their search function on the name "Faye and Lucille Stewart Foundation", go to the 990 tab, and look at the 2007 IRS form.

On Page 30 of that PDF you will see 1,684,955,468 as value of U. S. Government Securities. Look at the years 2006, 2007 and 2008, where did the U. S. Government Securities come from and where did they go?

Does that seem a bit odd that a Lane County Commissioner would have over one point six BILLION in a private Foundation? At best, this shows that Faye (Stumps) Stewart is incompetent to oversee financial matters, at worst…. I’ll leave that up to the reader.

My wife and I had a problem in 2007 with another “not for profit” that Faye Hills Stewart II was a board member. Our concern was that the “not for profit” was “invoicing the federal government for services not rendered”, fraud.
Could this be the reason Ol' Stumps Stewart did not want people looking into his "non profit" business. Complete story at http://community.kmtr.com/forums/thread/2487504.aspx under Foundation Trilogy .

Remember we were chased out of Lane County, Oregon at gun point. See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQQ4ystsAWo
