Are Schools-of-Choice Still Relevant?

Anonymous Anonymous said...

New topic...not sure how/where to start a thread.

Lots of of reports of fights at Greece Odyssey from parents/students currently there. A huge increase from just 2-3 years ago I am told.

Any truth to the rumours?

I have a child entering 5th grade in the fall and another in 3rd. Thoughts on whether to apply for them to go there via School of Choice lottery? What is the value add of Odyssey over let's say Athena which would be there normal district sending school?

Congrats To WHEC-TV News

You just earned the SCATS "Fake News" Award of the Week* for your story that aired at 11PM tonight regarding the "PNEUMONIA SPILL"  in Phelps!

Of course it was an AMMONIA SPILL, because the literate among us know that you can't "spill" an oft times communicable lung infection!

* There's so much fake news ... and downright stupid reporting by the nearly illiterate ... we feel the need to correct the record in an attempt to educate!

Leary Switches Party To Challenge Reilich

Democrats draft retired cop, and enrolled Republican, to challenge Reilich

When retired Greece police officer Jim Leary announced Monday that he would run for town supervisor as a Democrat, he became the second enrolled Republican to switch parties in the hopes of upending a GOP incumbent. 

Leary will challenge Supervisor Bill Reilich's bid for a second term. While his former chief, Todd Baxter, previously announced a run against Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn.
"You can sit on the sidelines and be a complainer," Leary said. "But if you want to change things, you have to get in the game."

The 61-year-old said he had been a Republican all his life but became dissatisfied with the local party, which controls all elected offices in town. He did not talk to Baxter before deciding to jump into politics, he said, but took encouragement from his decision to change parties.

Democrats hope to field a full slate of candidates for Greece town offices this fall, he said. Republicans hold a slight enrollment advantage, Board of Elections records show.
Leary is born and raised in Greece, where he lives with his two daughters. He lost his wife to cancer several years ago. He has been a volunteer firefighter and ambulance member and worked in other capacities, including sports leagues and local boards.

If elected, he said, he would "bring a culture in which I will have both an open door, and an open mind." Added Jamie Romeo, chairwoman of the Monroe County Democratic Party: "For too long, Greece Town Hall has operated as a surrogate office for the Monroe County Republican Party, rather than a resource for the residents in town."

Reilich, 60, countered by listing off various projects, from recreation to a new police station, a town Fourth of July celebration at no expense to taxpayers, and that he had not raised the tax rate while in office, adding: "I don't hear anybody really complaining."

"We're taking care of residents' needs," Reilich said. "Just ask anybody that lives on the lakefront."
