Valley School Site As everyone no doubt knows, Saturday, October fttti |g the day the citizens of Valley Community Unit District No. * 4 vote on A site for a future high school. After the unit was formed, there seemed to he considerable difference of opinion as to where the school should he built. On March 1, 1054 the Board of Education entered Into a contract with the University of Illinois, securing the help of the Office of Field Services in the selection of a suitable site for a new high school building, and in developing a sound building program. After making a thorough study of the district, the recommendation of the University Survey Team regarding a high school site, was that the school should be located as near the center of the district, taking late considers, tlon pupil population and transportation, as possible. A site, meeting this recommendation should be near the junction of Routes 116 and 97, south of Rapatee. There will be two sites on the ballot. No. 1 site Is the Polhemus site in Fairview. This site is directly north of the present high school, and is bordered on the east by Route 97. No. 2 site is known as the Estlc Brown site, and is located about VA miles west of the Rapatee junction on the south side of Route 116. On September 10, 1963, Spoon River Valley Community Unit District No. 4 filed a lawsuit in Fulton County Circuit Court against Ayrcshirc Collieries Corporation for blasting damages to the present high school. The amount of the lawsuit is $65,000.00 and costs. Arthur D. Young of Lcwistown is the attorney for the Plaintiff. Anyone wishing to verify this, may contact the Fulton County Courthouse and ask for At Law No. 63-176-L. According to the best information I have been able to obtain, there seems to be no coal of value within two or three miles of the Estie Brown site. A school at this site should not he subject to blasting damage. The ground on the east side of Route 97, directly east of the Polhemus site, has been sold to Peabody Collieries Corporation. They buy ground for one purpose only, and that is to mine coal. Do we as citizens and taxpayers of this district want a new high school within a few hundred yards of ground that will be mined in a few years? Do we want a new school that may in ten years have $50, $75 or $100,000.00 blasting damage? I don't and I don't believe the people of the Valley District do either. Are we willing to sacrifice the best possible education we can give to the almost 800 pupils in this district for a few little personal whims? Is this the rgiht way to demonstrate proper love and guidance for our children? Remember, this is Unit District No. 4 and we as voters can prove the word unit is true when we go to the polls on Saturday. United we stand; divided we fall. A house divided against itself cannot stand. ROBERT A. PUMFREY London Mills, Illinois. VOTE FOR 0 ESTIE BROWN SITE WHICH IS SECOND ON THE BALLOT —Pol. Adv.
