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.
Pleae everyone--realize how silly this thread is. We are all arguing which party has put us in the hole when the answer is that they have BOTH done it. The R's with not having the wealthy pay social security after they have earned over 108K and the D's with giving every creature comfort to those who won't work.
It is YOU (the working middle class) who foots the bill for everyone. We need to thrown all of them out -Reid, Boehner all of them. How do we allow them to create a Healthcare system for us and that THEY DO NOT HAVE TO PARTICPATE IN?
I seem to remember from attending one of the informational sessions--that there were 3 options availabe and that this current plan was not one of the three choices.
Why were those other options disposed of?
