On April 2, Jefferson City residents will vote on whether to approve a $79 million bond issue that would fund the construction of a new elementary school and a new high school. But, the proposal for a new high school has drawn opposition from some members of the community.
Opponents of the bond issue believe Jefferson City students would be ill served in what they call a “mega high school.” While they want a new high school to be built, they think the existing campus should remain open, making the population at each school smaller.
The charity Meals on Wheels delivers roughly 100 meals a day to the elderly and the disabled throughout Columbia. Inclement weather, like last week’s snowstorm, forces the charity to reorganize its efforts.
