I have been to four of the Brainerd school public meetings. The last one I attended was at the Crow Wing Town Hall, with only eight people there. Laine Larson talked to us the same as the meeting I attended where there were a couple hundred. Thank you, Laine.

From what I see, there is as much transparency as Blueprint181.org can do and the March 26 letter (in the Brainerd Dispatch) about "Flimflam" knows this. If this were done in secret, there would be no public meetings where every and all questions are answered.

Yes, it does cost to inform the public. Anyone who drives Business 371 during school hours should wonder, why there are children constantly walking across that road? It is to get to band practice (just for one example)? Why are we talking school safety at the Legislature? It should begin here.

When we are spending money to protect our children by building, repairing and updating I am willing to invest my money. I do know this is only one facet to the project but it is a major one.

I am betting the parents and community around the Florida shooting wish they had this problem we have - a proactive and transparent plan. Thank you, Laine Larson, for putting up with the personal attacks from certain people.
