No, according to the forum rules it's up to you to prove that you DON'T live in Frankfort.

This forum lives by the maxim "An accusation is automatically true unless it is proven false."

From today's Frankfort Times:

"Ivy Tech-Frankfort now has a name for its conference center.

The 800-square-foot center will be named after NHK Seating of America Inc., which donated an undisclosed sum of money to the project late Thursday afternoon. This is the latest gift given to the community college project, for which private donations total around $1.5 million, according to Pat Corey, Ivy Tech’s executive director of resource development.

“We are extremely grateful to NHK for their gift,” said Corey.

NHK requested the amount remain undisclosed."

Good news. Nice to see the business community stepping up to such a high level. They obviously care about this community and recognize the value of a populace with more than just a high school level education.

That's great. Maybe they will be the ones that push the money portion over the top.

At the minimum, it will help cut down the taxpayers portion.

Didn't NHK recently receive a sizable tax abatement for the expansion of a production line?

Tax payer dollars being used.

Plus, NHK hires from a staffing company at $10/hr with no benefits and staffing company is located in Kokomo.

If you look at the tax abatements that the county has given, you'd think many companies could afford to help out the IVT program.

But as my friend "tired of all the crooks" would say, just another day in Franktucky.

Maybe these companies want to give their money to someething worth a sh!t... Maybe they want to give to something that will last more than 5 years.

How about asking them for some money for a daycare for McBarnes, Ransom, Estes, Woods, Gunyon, Palmer, Utts, and a few others???
