I vote for the Farmer Bros. I too think the boat is an excellant idea. But what do I know? I'm just someone who takes my money to other cities to find entertainment. Back to the convention center...it only appeals to me if F and F developement company is awarded and placed near the mall. Otherwise, I think the convention center is a stupid idea. I know they will do a great job in design, construction and fight to do good for our community. Wasn't there an advertisment a few years back going around...."buy local"....pretty sad when the town that was promoting it doesn't follow through with it. I think if JC feels they need to spend unnecessary money, a center that is large enough to hold big name concerts, boat/trade shows, etc. would be nice.
I have no idea. I am not educated enough in this matter to say how it will affect all of the students. I am also not claiming that the academic approach is the best way to go, I just know it is different than what is being done now. I believe that adding a 2nd high school is just more of the same. Anyhow, I am looking forward to any new suggestions and possibly give the community more choices rather than the 2 that have been thrown on the table.
Boy am I glad I am not so close minded like some of the commenters on this forum...I had no idea what races were involved. In fact it never crossed my mind. The artilce didn't say, and the photo provided has a group of people in it. They could just be neighbors, not the ones involved. I don't see color of skin intil someone points it out. I see a man, a woman, a child, a dude in a blue shirt, lady with a green purse...etc. It's 2013 people, get with it. Crime comes in many shapes, forms and colors.
I can see the pros and cons on both sides...really I can. However, I will only vote for the Academic school design...not 2 high schools. I don't care about the sports, etc. As a graduate of JC, and being a student of the JC public shools my entire educational carreer I can honestly say I did not learn as much as I should have. I made really good grades, honor roll etc. But my basic education lacks among the national average...in my opinion. I am for anthing that will CHANGE the JCPS system. I hope I am not proven wrong, but I will be the first to admit it. I want what is best for my children, neices, nephews, and all of JC pupils; disreguarding cost.
spelchek...I apologize. My comment was no greater than the point I was implying. I was caught up in another forum and was bothered by that. My harsh words were directed elsewhere.

I apologize if any of my comments have upset anyone. I understand that Holidays are for family. I spend the Holidays with my family. But if there is a store open that allows me to buy products at a discounted price I will shop them when I am finished spending time with my family. If the stores choose not to be open, than I fine with it. It won't bother me that much. I can wait until they open.
