West River math VS. East River math

So this is an interesting story;

RCSD – $250m – $20/month increase in property taxes on every $100,000 of value  =  $240 yr
Morrison/Vik/Maher MATH:
SFSD – $190m – $2/month increase in property taxes on $100,000  =  $24 yr
So which finance director is telling the truth?
I do know that the SFSD rearranged their capital outlay levees, but the disparity is strange. I also wonder if they plan to pay off the bonds a lot faster in RC?

The South Dakota Republican Party isn’t about growth; it’s about keeping Social Security recipients alive long enough to pay the property taxes that sustain red state failure.

Perhaps Rapid City students repeat grades more often

Math changes as you head West River. It has something to do with space time relativity. Haven’t you ever noticed, that you go back in time, whenever you head to Rapid? It’s known as the BelvidereBeltway or the KadokaKomplexity. It’s reality first comes into play as the Interstate system whizzes by a ‘1880 Town,’ which is then further highlighted by a increasingly cowboys and indians motif as you continue to travel west. I believe that the Cosmos Mystery Area tourist stop is the apex of this phenomena and possibily the beginnings of a blackhole as well. With the interest in finding dark matter near Lead being only, thus, more understandable; and with Wall Drug being merely a pitstop as one hitchhikes through this galactic anomaly….Free ice water anyone?
(Free? How does that fit into West River math?(Does taupe housing have anything to do with this, too?)). 😉

Could be the difference in exchange rate between modern Sioux Falls and backwoods 1800s RC?
