  1. Just curious why SWHS’s booster club is raising money to build a new field house when other schools have these things paid for by the taxpayers of Guilford County in the form of a bond.

  2. Great question. Can you go to the bond hearing meetings and/or write Terry Grier and the school board about this? I do think tennis courts for SWH could be in the bond package but I might be wrong.

  3. I’m still going to need a lot of convincing before I fully support this bond. I wish there was another way. I still oppose it on principle, and if there is a better way to build new facilities, someone speak out, I’m listening. I just cringe when I see the waste downtown and this is money that can be used to build and upgrade our facilities.
