Rob as I said in my previous post, WHAT number is too big? I used to think a graduating class over 50 students was too big. The student body now is fine to some, too big for others, and too small for people other than that. We could argue about what the number of students "should" be. And that number is different than others. Now Rob let me ask you again, WHAT STUDENT NUMBER IS "TOO MANY"?
I am a taxpayer, and I feel paying a little more taxes is worth it to give children a more innovative school that will give more options to the kids. These options that will be there can't be seen by some now because they can't see past a little extra money. To me, giving children the best up to date and advanced education is PRICELESS.
I do not like big crowds so I chose not to speak, but I did tell Dr. Mitchell I was in favor of 1 new high school. I have 4 children currently enrolled in JCPS but when I moved here, I thought 150 in a graduating class was too many students let alone 500 because that is not what I was accustomed to but took the chance anyway. It was the best decision as our kids are thriving in this district. Some say a new single HS integrating freshman would be too many students. What number is too many? Just because some are accustomed to a particular school size (as I was) doesn't mean a larger size is detrimental. As long as the new HS is able to expand if there is a growing need is what matters. Just because the school population would be different than the size some think it should be doesn't mean it's bad or wrong. It's just different. A change. From what I observed, the group that wants 2 high schools doesn't even have any children that CURRENTLY attend any of the Jefferson City Public Schools. That in itself speaks volumes.
The 38 year old cougar is probably hot, don't stereotype just because the majority of women that age have let themselves go. That's not everyone that age.
This is inspiring that a community can pull together and help someone that helps our country!

I agree, that paid committe has been in place for almost a year now. Since the time the members were chosen, there hasn't been anything accomplished. But in the meantime, the water, trash, sewer, and electric (to name a few) have all raised their rates & still no raise in income. Great committee.
When my kids swim in a pool for 30 minutes on a hot day & then get out, they are shivering too. Should I be charged with child abuse? Hmmm... This story doesn't add up. If her child didn't want it, why did she stand back & watch for 20 minutes? Then finally do nothing but turn off the water? She didn't go grab him out of "harm's way"? she watched her child suffer for 20 minutes, then watched him suffer again for another 10? Nope, doesn't add up.
What the heck is meth oil?
