Letters from Page 5A
New Seaside campus
makes sense
As a Portland resident, I
don’t have a vote on the Sea-
side school bond measure this
fall, but my fingers are crossed
for its success.
I hope Seaside voters know
that there are a lot people
around the state who share this
view. We Seaside stakeholders
believe the community chil-
dren deserve safe, modern
schools. For instance, many
of the 17,000 Hood to Costa
participants who crossed the
finish line last August, and the
32,000 visitors to the Seaside
Convention Center in 2015.
Or, more to the point, many
of the vacation property own-
ers with homes in Gearhart,
Seaside, Cannon Beach, and
Arch Cape who will help pay
for the measure if it passes,
although they will not cast a
vote on it.
Few owners of North Coast
vacation homes live and vote
in the community. Local vot-
ers from households of more
modest means may fear that
the school bond measure
would mean rent increases for
them.
While the concern is rea-
sonable, the Seaside district
outsized property tax base
(three times the size of nearby
Astoria) means the ambitious
school project can be done at a
modest tax rate. Rents should
remain affordable.
Weyerhaeuser’s donation
of 80 acres of timberland for
the new school campus set a
tone of generosity. Seaside
students’ fundraising efforts
provided the earnest money.
The State of Oregon’s new
school bond matching grant
program will sweeten the pot.
This Seaside stakeholder
hopes local voters will now
carry this important school
bond measure across the finish
line to victory on November 8.

Replace our schools
Now is the time to replace
our deteriorating schools
I have a home in Seaside,
and as a person who has many
years in the construction busi-
ness, it is easy to see that our
school buildings are in bad
shape. I am in these school
buildings several times each
year and I am appalled at the
problems I see. Emergency
fixes have cost $500,000 this
year alone. And that does not
include the regular mainte-
nance, which is extensive be-
cause of the age and condition
of the buildings.
The time to replace these
buildings is now — while in-
terest rates are at an all-time
low and we have a gift of 80
acres of property from Weyer-
haeuser. If we pass this bond
issue, there is also the excel-
lent possibility for the school
district to receive $4,000,000
in State funding for construc-
tion. But construction costs
are rising quickly and we must
act now.
I owned a commercial cabi-
net shop, working in hospitals,
banks and schools. Of all the
architects I have worked with
over the years, there could not
have been a better choice to
design our new schools than
Dull, Olson Weeks. I have no
doubt that they will design

Vote Trump
If you plan to vote for Don-
ald Trump because President
Obama is a black man, there
are better reasons. Vote for Mr.
Trump because he used to be a
Democrat, but isn’t now. Vote
for him because he used to be
pro-choice, but isn’t now. Vote
for him because he used to be
godless, but has now found
religion. Vote for him because
he used to be a “birther,” but
isn’t now. Vote for him be-
cause he likes women, lots of
them.
Vote for him because he
believes in the sanctity of
marriage, three times. Vote
for him because he has used
thousands of dollars of other
people’s money from a char-
ity to pay his personal debts.
Vote for him because he has
swindled thousands more
from folks who had signed up
for his fake Trump University.
Vote for him if you want a re-
actionary, vindictive, me-first
sociopath, with the personali-
ty of a child, with his hand on
the big red nuclear war button.
Vote for him if you want to
see NATO gutted, and Russia
invading Estonia and Latvia
with impunity. Vote for him
so he can become the world’s
second wealthiest man, af-
ter his buddy Vladimir Putin.
Vote for him because Russia
has endorsed him. Vote for
him because he refuses to re-
lease his tax returns, because
they will show his cheating on
charity contributions and his
financial ties to Russia.
Vote for this billionaire,
born with a silver spoon in his
mouth, who has never worked
a day for wages in his life,
because he is just “one of the
guys.” Vote for him because
he says he will cancel trade
agreements and somehow,
miraculously, bring back jobs
that were actually mostly lost
to technology advances rather
than trade.
Vote for him because,
when asked why he had out-
sourced his trademark Trump
apparel line to China, he said
“You can’t get anything made
in this country.”
And, most of all, vote for
him because he is not a wom-
an.
