I'm all for lights. Night football games are part of high school. Please don't let neighbors who moved in next door to the school squelch high school activities.

But it is not the neighbors who are asking to change the satus quo--it is the school district

A misconception many people have about how school funds can be spent - Bond funds can only be use for capital expenditures – building, etc and cannot be use for teachers, staff or general fund items.

no misconception here - the link is to Gibson's comment about why he proposed using operating funds for the charter classroom acquisition by the district. Not a case of teachers, staff or general funds.
