if they end up closing the school, i would hope they would turn the campus into a community center/town hall thingy.................

I really hope this is not true, they do not need to close down the school, that would be a shame to bus the kids all over. Hope this is not true.

There is a community meeting Wednesday Dec 2 at 5 pm in the community hall in Railroad. Pizza will be served and bought by Steve Wilensky. This is very important. I know Jimmy can't be there but Joyce. Why not come? The owner of the cafe has said he will probably have to close. Much of his business comes from the school and the parents. Not only that, the school is the hub of the community. This is a hard battle and we need a show of support so please pass on the word.

By the way,Jimmy, Buller wants to open up a "old folks home" on the school site. Just think, a captive audience for his shenanigans. He could have wheel chair races....But it is a rumor,I hope. Also a sub-station for the sheriffs dept. But according to Sheriff Downum that is not in the cards. This time no change is good change.
