    I don’t like the idea of Metal Detectots (or something of this nature) @ all the schools but if it means bringing more SAFETY/PROTECTION to our CHILDREN & the FACULTY then so be it. That’s what our taxes should be SPENT ON not lighting the Coronado Bridge. Not that it won’t be beautiful, but PRIORITIES FIRST PEOPLE (bridge was just an example)

      The lighting for the Coronado bridge isn't funded by the government/people. It is relying on private funding. Did you not even read the story?
