Are You Willing To Pay For A Stadium?


Shouldn't We Be Closing More Schools Instead?

What does this mean? Is someone proposing this?

SCATS said...

To 5:58AM ~~ Yup!

Yup! It's about time and is going to happen.

SCATS said...

To 5:44PM ~~ I'm sure it is. I'm also SURE it will be a source of CONTINUOUS TROUBLE, so this BLOG has a future for at least another couple decades.

It won't pass the vote. Why would the community vote in a stadium at just one school? It's the whole big theatre debacle revisited. You can't have something at one school and say it belongs to all the schools. Clearly the school that it is located at is going to feel it is theirs.

That is OK, we will just go and play at the other school's stadiums for our kids rather than provide a decent stadium where ALL our kid's and community can use and play. Scats, take the blinders off and for once realize that this could be a good thing for Greece CSD and its community.

Stadium. Where? Would each high school get one?

What type of stadium? Local sports? Sabres? Buffalo Bills? Little League? What!?!?

SCATS said...

To 9:53PM ~~ I agree with your last statement AND that will be the impetus for GCSD to build one at each HS over time. It's kind of like how the original Odyssey School was told you get to be "special" but not special enough to have sports. Look how that's turned out ;)

To 10:26PM ~~ The keyword in your comment is "COULD" ... I could be a millionaire living in the French Alps too ... lol

To 10:40PM ~~ Arcadia is the current focus. Let the whining begin!

To 10:41PM ~~ A school field, complete with artificial, cancer-causing turf.

Where did this tomfoolery come up? The capital update at the board meeting?

SCATS said...

To 5:41AM ~~ Yup. There are LOTS of behind the scenes committee meetings going on that the public isn't invited to, also. They've been whispering about the details for a few years, ever since Babs landed.

There's nothing behind the scenes, there is a heading on the website that says Capital Projects 2015, click on it and it lists all the meeting dates and times, who's on the committees, the agendas and minutes. And I know you're going to say it was put up today after seeing your post but it wasn't, it's been on the website for a couple of weeks and it has been talked about at the last two or three board meetings. And no I don't work for the district and I'm not on the committee and I'm not sure I even agree with the project but saying this is behind the scenes is wrong because it isn't.

To 2:32PM ~~ I'm fully aware of what's on the website. In fact, I sent the link for that to someone else yesterday. It amazes me at how little people posting here 'think' I know after 8+ years!

As for there being "nothing behind the scenes" YOU are mistaken! If you believe this idea was hatched earlier this month (as per the posted meeting dates), then YOU are extremely naive! I'll bet Mr. Russell could hook you up with some swampland in Florida.

Talk about getting one or more turf fields has been quietly mentioned since our interim Supt.'s work on Capital Improvement inventories which was when Nadolinski still worked for Greece PRIOR TO BABS being hired.

As for the talk at the recent BOE meetings, the presenters typically fail to speak into a mic. Their words are mumbled, probably to avoid accountability & having a record (public one) of what was said. This past week's meeting was impossible to make sense of. WGMC's signal and 1-2 other radio stations were on top of each other. I believe that violates FCC rules ... but hey, WGMC is operating in the red!

The only intelligible comments came from Babs & the BOE when they spoke into their mics. They didn't say much.

SCATS said...

BTW, they do NOT post the location of those committee meetings ;)

Maybe they should spend some of that money on creating more kindergarten teaching positions. Seeing how there are 26-27 kids per class in some buildings.
