Blue Valley Bond

According to the Bond2020 page on the Blue Valley District website, registered voters of the Blue Valley School District will be asked to complete a mail-ballot that authorizes the sale of bonds to reinvest in the district’s facilities and technology, reinforce school safety initiatives and reimagine facilities and educational programs.

Voting will begin on Jan. 8 and end on Jan. 28.

For Blue Valley High, the bond vote passing will include changes to the school that would alter the landscape drastically. For example, the Mobiles may be removed in favor of building extensions. Additionally, the Junior pod would be renovated into another classroom. For more information, visit

Bolivian Coup

On Nov. 10, the first indigenous Bolivian President Evo Morales was forced to resign in a military coup. 

This and other protests were in response to the contested election results in October. 

Jeanine Añez, a former senator, has since declared herself the interim president stating, “The Bible has returned to the government palace” — an attack on the former president’s constitutional reform which declared Indigenous traditions legally equal to those of Christianity. 

Morales has since fled the country and is now in exile in Mexico.

Additionally, the Christian interim president has drawn criticism for anti-indigenous statements she made in 2013. Furthermore, according to the Guardian, “the transitional cabinet initially sworn into office on [Nov. 13] did not include a single indigenous person, in a country where at least 40% of the population belongs to one of 36 indigenous groups.”
