Rural School Funding

The Department of the Interior is backing off of their earlier plan to sell off pieces of national forest land to provide funding for rural schools in former logging communities. The payments are the result of federal legislation designed to offset declines in local tax bases in the wake of new federal forest policies in the 1990s that restricted logging on federal land.

The Department will look for other funding sources.

    I started laughing as soon as i read about the low water pressure. Not 5 minutes ago my wife was here complaining about not having ANY water. By the time i got there to investigate, the pressure was normal again.
