Our IT person was making $95,000??? How many city managers are making over $100,000? And how many of our JC school administrators make over $100,000.
Why are tax dollars being used to make people rich?
Great idea. We are in need of gym space.
La Tda--The way I understand it, and please correct me if I 'm wrong, but JCPS is going to the academy teaching model regardless if it wins or not.
I would highly encourage anyone that supports this idea to speak with a middle school or Simonsen 9th grade teacher and they will tell you --that throwing 9th graders in with the older high school kids is a terrible idea!!! The response that kids will be seperated is hogwash. Same as middle school, there will be a Commons Area and lunch room, etc... where all kids gather.
Mr. Coots, you will have my vote for school board.
It surprises me that a district of this size does not have more parents interested in running for school board.
Cary is an outstanding architect so it is no wonder why he was chosen. I applaud Blair Oaks for being so forward thinking.
Years ago, a family wouldn't buy a house in the Blair Oaks school district, now it is the other way around. It is the 3rd fastest growing school district because people are fed up with JCPS.
This is desperately needed in our community.
I would like to see a convention center...but I agree with the above post...it has to be large enough to accomdate big events. Lets either decide to do this right or not at all. To go with a much smaller venue will only give us the same issues we already face, which is not enough to attract first class events.
MO4LIFE- My response would be that General Growth could have cared less about the property, all they wanted was the profit and put nothing back into it--kind of like a slumlord. With this property only a few miles from Mr. Farmers house, I believe he will put in the extra effort to make it a nice facility.
When is the last time that the mall tried to attract any customer traffic? Have a boat show or home builders showcase, anything to attract a crowd. They did nothing.
Anything is better than what we currently have.
This is outstanding news for Jefferson City. I applaud Mike and Bud for their committment to JC. It would have been easy for them to continue on with their core business and pass this by. This can only help Jefferson City.
Sorry about that...So we spent $6 million to renovate the football stadium just a couple of years ago. Now we are selling that investment and the rest of the high school is only worth $2 million? Give me a break.
