Questions about quarry and schools

Dear Editor,

With the potential of the limestone quarry in Vincent being so close to the schools, why has the Shelby County School Board not answered the many questions about safety of the students?

How will the rock dust affect them?

What effect does the noise from the blasting have on learning?

How will the sinkholes be handled?

Did the paltry $30,000 donation buy their silence?

Or do they see this as a way to get out of supporting schools that they deem unworthy?
