KLPW Listeners Support Prop R

The results of the KLPW poll are in. We asked our listeners what they thought about Proposition R for the Washington School District. Prop R will ask 2 questions. The first will be to approve a 9 million dollar no tax increase bond issue that will be used for various improvements throughout the district. The second question will be a 40 million dollar 25 cent tax increase that will pay for a new middle school and other improvements. 61% of our listeners voted yes on both questions. 36% voted no for both. This means our listeners are overwhelming supportive of Prop R and would like to see the school district build a new middle school. The split votes between yes on Question 1 and no on Question 2 were almost nonexistent, showing our listeners are either for or against the 40 million dollar increase. Washington voters will decide on Proposition R during the April 2 election.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Washington Varsity Soccer Goalie Camron Shipley. Camron made countless saves in Washington's 1-0 win over Borgia Saturday night at Jim Scanlan Stadium at Washington High School. The game was scoreless through regulation and two overtimes and Shipley only gave up one goal in the shootout. Camron is a senior and this is his first year playing soccer.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
