This is very good news for the area with a + 15% unemployment figure.. The Chinese people are very respectful and and good citizens! They work hard, pay their taxes and cause little or no problems for our society! As opposed to blacks and Hispanics who suck us dry and destroy our nation!! Especially the blacks who think that they are entitled to free everything. Great news for the area..

ok, how many teachers in this area can speak Chinese??? Bet not many. In order to teach one language they need to know the language of the people they are trying to teach. Teachers will more than likely be from out of the area. So there go those jobs. maintenence and grounds probably will create a few jobs. clerical will need to understand chinese to answer calls and questions form the students families. kitchen staff will have to able to provide Chinese dishes among their selections. So, how many secretaries in Ogdensburg speak fluent Chinese??...probalby zip. How many cooks in the area are able to cook authenic Chinese meals?? many a couple. So how many real jobs for Oburg residents are going to be created?

And by the way...when Ivy Ridge came here it called itself a private school. It was anything but a school...more like a reformatory for teens.

From one he'll hole to another smh.. And for those of you who call it a "reformatory" no it was not.. It was a places where Mormons manipulated our parents out of their life savings promised miracles and abused the children in their care when all we needed was a positive role model and some encouragement. Of course tellingbus that ogdensburg thought were a bunch of criminals and that they would shoot us if they got a chance didnt exactly help with our self worth u no?

long term plan for China is to own America. they plan 100 years ahead. They now own $1.5 trillion in US Treasury bills.

What is the price of the Tea Party in China? notta! They are worthless. Fuken politicians are watching all of this happen. Watch how much they get in tax breaks and grant money from the IDA.

Maybe they will employ the locals to built toys for the future McChan Happy meals.

Can you say NAFTA! Open up the borders. America is bloated.

Yes, good for us to learn to speak Chinese so when we emigrate to China to find a job we can already speak the language.

If you live in Ogdensburg then I will tell u right now that you have neigbors close by that are responsible for abusing thousands of children and to this day have gotten away with it. Anne Morley(director) and her son Ryan Morley("family representative") should be incarcerated along with many other staff members such as Dustin Miller also of ogdensburg etc. They deserve to pay for everything they have done to us, and one day I am confident they will. If you happen to see these people do not give them the time of day and let them know exactly what they're worth...shit.
