1.98 million into the old Indian Valley High School building? I thought the whole reason we built the new superschool was because the IVHS building was so old and damaged that it wasn't worth repairing?

1.98 million will be 3 million until they're done. If there is one thing that this illustrious school board has been forthcoming and truthful about, I missed it. Here are just a few of their "greatest hits"..

"IVMS is unsafe..Foundation sinking..New building needed so we can move the middle school and close this building." The new school, several miles away, magically fixed all of that? Wow, this McKissick guy is GOOD! On second thought, elementary school kids are smaller than middle school kids. Maybe they figured the foundation will be OK with a little less weight on it.

"The new IVHS will cost under $65 million, no need for a pesky referendum. We know what is good for those silly taxpayers." $100 million+ and counting. Way to circumvent the law!

"There are no plans for a combined high school. This will be a new IVHS." Really?

"Derry and Seventh Ward will be auctioned." Err, Derry will, anyway. We don't want our buddy to have to fork over six figures for his parking lot.

Just remember, though, it's all for the kids, and we're the taxpayers' friends. By the way, lemons are green, limes are yellow and owl droppings are a tasty, wholesome snack. Don't question us, or we'll act like teenagers and ridicule you. We know what's best for everyone.
