Near the end of the editorial “OPRF’s big decision” [Our Views, Viewpoints, Dec. 14] are two integral sentences: “Funding major overhauls of the campus after 50 years of not investing in the school’s facilities need other methods and approaches. In the early months of 2023, the school board will need to decide on that funding.”

Wouldn’t it be better to first determine what “major overhauls” should be the priorities for investment? The new pool and all its trimmings still seem to be the main priority, funding be damned. The OPRF High School board is twisting itself into knots to devise a scheme to pay for it all and hell-bent on thinking all of it is only their decision.
