I'm not being a smarty pants...... But why should taxpayer money be spent for employee memberships? Shouldn't they buy theirs like the rest of us?
Awesome! Love Sam's Club.
"Debra Runzi, guidance director for the Jefferson City Public Schools, believes it might be partially due to the fact that Jefferson City serves a transient population."
Really????? Any data that I have ever seen reflects the opposite. Jeff City does not have the influx that other communities face.
“We have some of the finest teachers in the country right here in Jefferson City,” she said. “They deserve our respect and praise.”
So voting against forming the largest high school in the sate is somehow disrespecting the teachers?
**...students that are shoehorned into a building that was not designed for the number of students"
Incorrect. The building was designed for 2400 students, and that was before the addition of Nichols career center. You are allowed your own opinions but not your own facts!
"...the community did not expend a great deal of money to implement the academies." Mountain Home didn't build a $55 million dollar high school to do it!!! This is comparing apples to oranges. This is about leadership that is CHOOSING to make JC the biggest high school in the state. I have asked 3 board members the same question--why are we the only district in the state who is striving for a bigger high school?-- and have yet to get an answer.
This will be the first school bond issue I have ever voted against.
That is awful. All Mr. Obama's enviromental policies do is put decent, hardworking people out of jobs.
I agree. For it to be effect it must be downtown. No one would schedule a convention where you have to take a shuttle or school bus from the Mall to the Capitol. 80% of the business will come from associations and they want access to the Capitol and state depts.
the only way we are goint to attract a convention over Columbia or the Lake is if the convention has a need to interact with state government. So I think the site would have to be close to the Capitol, Truman Building, Supreme Court, MoDOT, etc...
It would be like builidng a convention center at the Lake that doesn't have any access to the Lake without a 3 mile drive.
My relative teaches at the high school and it is COMMON for a student to tell a teacher to F#@K Off and there is nothing that they will do to the kid in the form of punishment. BUT a 3rd grader gets 3 days suspension for playing with a toy?
Am I living in the twilight zone?
First Mr. Nickolas sent the email telling employees how to vote and now this. I think he has completely lost the trust and faith of the public. City Administrator is not a good fit for him.
