Up, up and away
Residents of Marshall might have noticed red and yellow balloons drifting overhead late Tuesday morning. About 200 balloons were released from 10 day-care facilities and preschools throughout the city as part of the Marshall Public School Facility Committee's campaign kickoff. The group is seeking public approval for an $11.9 million bond issue in the April 8 election to construct a new elementary school which would serve third, fourth and fifth grades, provide for renovation work at Bueker Middle School and add two science labs to Marshall High School.
