Hey...pipe down, Pronghorn! Our kids are several years from high school. They were, however, included in the lockdown. Lots of schools in the area.
Where is Seth Whipper on this? Neighborhood schools, AMHS included, were on lockdown for an hour Tuesday because of this shooting, and the children are all too familiar with what they should do when they hear "Code Yellow." Where is the outrage?
Mr Bubbles understands basic grammar about as well as Chris Collins understands the meaning of "conflict of interest." If the church had abided by the terms in the lease, AND if the church had paid its rent in a timely manner, AND if Chris Collins had objected when the board voted UNANIMOUSLY to terminate the lease, then there might be an argument. If "the community" can't pay what they agreed on when they originally negotiated the generous terms, then the community should find a new home. If they won't do that by the end of the month (when the lease ends) then Chris Collins should resign from the school board.
I am supremely disappointed in the Board's decision, but not surprised by Collins. Any adult who uses "U" in what should be a professional email and can't spell "African" shouldn't have been elected to begin with, and certainly not RE-elected. I'm not at all sure what motivated the rest of those folks to vote with him. Rev Collins should have abstained from the vote. As a person closely connected to Hursey and the issue, it was a direct conflict of interest for him to vote on it. It's just beyond comprehension that Tom Ducker, Elizabeth Moffly, & Michael Miller would ignore the overwhelming desires of Hursey parents AND the Neighborhood Planning Team when making the decision. Politics makes such strange bedfellows.
Fish Pimp-I'm both surprised and angry that an elected official would send an email like the one quoted in the article to ANYONE, especially a constituent. I have a low tolerance for grammar and typing errors anywhere, and in what should be a professional email exchange, it's downright unacceptable. Additionally, it looks like the tone of the email was rude and insulting. I agree with vol-2222: Chris Collins should abstain from voting on this issue. It impacts him directly, as he has children at Hursey...one on each "side" of the school. The inconvenience of possibly having 2 kids at different schools is what prompted him to fight the move by the district to transition Hursey to a full Montessori school.
