EmporiaNews.com will only have important/urgent updates. I have had a complication from surgery two weeks ago, and am on my way to emergency surgery again. I will resume full updates as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.

"Explain to the Kids"

How do so many people
That claim to be so wise
Come to us with their decisions
Then holler back with suprise!
 
Well the south trys putting down the north
So this time their side I'll take
Just to show you it matters not where you live
But what common sense you make.
 
The south has found its schools are pitiful
Both the buildings and education in decay
Yet our local leaders haven't a clue
To regroup how will they pay.
 
Now the problem didn't start yesterday
Its been around for quite a while
Yes several administrations saw it go down
Yet the best they could do was smile.
 
There's no doubt that we'll need money
In fact most likely lots
Still we can't go the the end of the rainbow
and pick up those big pots.
 
Now I'm not saying we can't do this
though our children will suffer til we do
Yes the money is needed to complete this job
Not for the many projects quite new.
 
The slavery museum and celetery clean up
Are wants that shouldn't overcede
It is far more important for each child around
To get the education they need.
 
Your talk of  moving statues and flags
Is brought on by an unknown amount
It might be wise to find a supervisor
that can do an actual count.
 
Yes you have started many new projects
Yet to finish one might be nice
It does little good to start another
Until you've raised the first ones price.
