On March 19, we will have the opportunity to vote for the bond issue that will address much-needed and long-delayed improvements to our school district. As senior citizens and residents of the district since 1971, we urge you to support this bond.

Our reasons are threefold. There has been a proud tradition of providing a quality education to our students, and it is in our best interest to continue that tradition. Safer and more cohesive instructional space, as well as modern science labs, are some of the essential elements in attaining that goal.

Our homes are a valuable asset, and the reputation of the Rockville Centre School District is a major factor in maintaining that value. We believe that the additional cost of $10 per month for the average homeowner is a wise investment.

Because of low interest rates, competitive bidding and New York State Building Aid, the timing of the bond issue is excellent.

The education of our children is the responsibility of the community as a whole, so let us all support the bond issue.

Vincent and Helen Bohn

Rockville Centre

RVC is most likely the worst selfish in the world. In the aftermath of sandy, filthy dirty hungry folks whose homes were destroyed found out a week or two later that RVC folks were in the bars, out to dinner, laughing and enjoying life.

Red Cross, Fema, Mormans, folks from all over USA flew to Southshore to help in devastation

Selfish RVC could care less. RVC rec was too buy doing gymnastics to volunteer space, laundermats would not stay open late to help us wash clothes, RVC police would give out tickets to folks trying to use station while long beach line was closed.

I would never live or raise children there.

Sandeep - This is probably one of the most disturbing and disappointing things to see in an editorial. Rockville Centre residents have helped countless victims of Sandy by providing food, clothes and shelter to those in need. Rockville Centre Recreation Center opened its doors with donations (food and clothing) as well as vans and trucks. Rockville Centre opened school availability to misplaced students for months and continue to do so. This was all done even in the face of RVC residents losing their own homes or their parents homes. I understand you have gone through an awful situation but your anger is unfounded and pointed in an incorrect direction.
