Maybe bigger isn't always better for Hebron schools

Fuzzy math on the Hebron school referendum. A search of the Hebron school web page says it's a increase of 23.38 cents* on your property taxes. 

To suggest this is only a small increase for the sake of the kids is misleading. The facts are on the web page.

Having graduated three kids from the Hebron schools, and wishing a bright future for my grandkids, maybe bigger isn't always better.

- Mike Walstra, Hebron
