Well years ago when they were selling bricks from YAI, they should have continued and demolished the old building, now they have no funding, the building is falling down, bird crap, and certain diseases for sure will follow the broken down building. Do you honestly think that Sgt. York would have thought the orginial school to stand for 100 or more years. Times change, and so people have to change with them. As far as the state funding, I have heard from certain officials(state) that they were glad that this would eventually happen and they have no plan on funding it any longer.
