This Week's Poll
Poll Result

Local police have recommended that Rochester schools install concrete traffic barriers at major school entrances. This is to prevent someone from smashing a vehicle through doors and into the building. Is this necessary?

  40%
1. – It certainly is. It would be relatively inexpensive and reasonable. You never know when some goofball might try something.

  6%
2. – No opinion.

  54%
3. – Seems a little over the top to me. We don’t need to turn our schools into fortresses.
