Oh wow, initially the the article said the judge suggested "meditation". I'm thinking damn what a smart @ss, that's cold. But later you see they meant mediation. lol.

Judge Popejoy is a smart judge. He will see this frivolous lawsuit for what it is. If it's not dismissed, they surely aren't going to win.

This small group of people needs to realize we are going to build the school (which is what we voted for in the referendum!).

I think this lawsuit has merit. I am outraged at what has occured in district 204. Dr. Daeschner and Metzger are terrible leaders that base their decisions on their egos.

They have ruined the district and are gambling with taxpayer money.

Three lawsuits against district 204 and more to come. It's a disgrace.

I sure hope somebody puts a stop to this rogue school board and superintendent soon.

I love it!

Looks like some of the homeowners in Tall Grass and White Eagle will find themselves upside down on their mortgages, paying for a frivolous lawsuit and sending their children to Waubonsie Valley anyway.

Karma!

springbrook dad,

Wow, nasty posts! I think it's a little ridiculous to assume all residents of Tall Grass and White Eagle are a part of a frivolous lawsuit. Your posts just highlights the nasty behavior that has been encouraged by our wonderful leaders in district 204. I feel that BB damages might make all of us end up paying in the end.

Wake up Springbrook Dad, if the BB estates are awarded a high amount in damages, it won't be Tall Grass or White Eagle's fault.

If White Eagle and Tallgrass went along with the first referendun instead of kicking and screeming about the boundries; we would not be in this mess. We would have a third school on the BB property without overpaying for the land and there would be no lawsuits.

I think the SB is doing a wonderful job.

Hey... dont forget about the NSFOC meeting tonight, give my regards.

Tall Grass voted in favor of the first referendum. Ironically, Springbrook did not pass it.

I remember a few Springbrook folks kicking and screaming about boundaries as well.

It's pretty east to criticize others, but you should at least get your facts straight.

This is a great step towards getting a third high school into a very good district. The people who do not agree with the actions of the school board in 204 should consider other options. Private school, moving or maybe even working to improve the school that they are slotted for are all great options.
Think of the lessons you could teach to the young people who have been watching your actions and learning from it.

I wonder if all of this tension created by the group from WE and TG will continue during subdivivision swim meets, I know there are a few people I would like to shove in the pool.

Fran Giovanni,

I fail to see how just saying this lawsuit has merit does anything to give it merit.

Your comment about Dr. Daeschner and Mark Metzger is nothing more that namecalling with nothing to back it up.

How is being fiscally responsible by obtaining land the school district afford be considered, "gambling with taypayer money"?
If anything it the select few that are contesting this site for their own selfish interests that are "gambling with taxpayer money".

How is three lawsuits against the district a disgrace? Anybody can sue anyone for any reasons these days. The disgrace is our overly-litigious society and those that use it for their own selfish personal gain.

How is a school board that does not cater to the interests of a few but the interests of many a "rogue" school board?

Personally I find the behavior of this small group of Dist. 204 families disgusting, selfish, and much like a child who throws a temper tantrum to try and get their way.
