Together, Springfield Will Hear Us

I like the idea which our West Central high school students developed for gathering momentum to push through a long overdue 4-lane highway.

"34VOICES" may just be the key to improve a dangerous piece of Highway that runs through Henderson County.

I often wondered what the sense was in building four-lane roads on less traveled highways and then leaving 2-lane highways that are so much more traveled and in need of improvement such as Highway 34.

West Central students going the extra mile to encourage those far and near to join them as part of "34Voices," are the leaders we've hoped for, and someday I hope we can vote for.

Let's see if we can break a record for the most voices to represent a cause in Springfield - Anyone who's ever driven on 34, sign their petition and support this important cause. It will save lives.

Great job West Central!
