#34th in what? Alphabetical order.


Are you referring to the 34 letters of the alphabet? Which government school did you attend? Did that school's athletics program help to adequately prepare you for life, in your opinion?

I have a copy of the 129 page document. My point is there are several pages of rankings, which one was being refered to? There is no relevance to his statement without qualification. Kind of like your incessant random unsubstantiated comments.

I wouldn't be. \:\) The taxes on my old house went from $1100 in 1990 to $8200 in 2012, with no improvements to the house, or to the schools. Probably 5/8 of the latter amount was school taxes. The rise in the cost of being forced to support the government schools far outstripped the rise in prices caused by the government's deliberate (they have to vote to borrow, and they deliberate beforehand, and they always conclude that it's okay to saddle your children with debt) devaluing of the currency over that period, although that devaluation was itself considerable.

most of the students probably do not have any understanding of the amount that taxpayers pay for the services provided to them in the school system

Nah...I'm way too old for athletics. Sometimes, just watching them will tire me out, and I have to nap. The only good thing is that if I don't start for home soon enough, and start to stiffen up, to the point where I think I might pass out, or even die a wretched, lonely death in the bleachers, I just call in my 5 Swedish nurses to work me over. One must adapt to age. Have a good one! I'll keep track of the event from down here in no-SFCSD-taxes land.

Guys and gals,thanx so much for entertaining me thru the boring political convention coverage.I thought your comments, good or bad, were excellent over coffee in the AM before work. I started this ball rolling and I have enjoyed the ride.Now maybe I can start something about gas prices or Indian tax situations or kick backs on government spending. Or maybe ???????????

Welcome to the forums, and you seem to have just the right attitude needed to enjoy them. You should post more than twice a year. It's like having people with strange personality disorders yell obscenities at you from a place where you can't see who they are. Except for me, and I can't really describe what I do, except that it often sounds like it involves very heavy meds.

Not really true...my mom always said it was just a low IQ, and then she'd start muttering and swearing at my dad, under her breath. Well, he wasn't really under her breath...he was actually usually under the car, but we'd beg her to move it off him, and sometimes she would.

You just have to roll with it; if you can, they're tons of fun. Thay giv mi a chance to praktis riting, to, and too pic up sum riting tips.

I'll bet they would have won on the old field, too, but it does look pretty. Nice pic, Jim!

What are you gonna do? The money is all ready spent, and the project is completed. It seems to have turned out pretty well. Did it truly have to be done? Every other school has been upgraded like this, so why should Mynderse be any different? Course now there's higher upkeep costs and maintenance. Will the State take on those costs, or is that left to the School District? I'm pretty sure I know what the answer to that is.

Auburn rejected it as well. However they have a new proposal in conjunction with Cayuga County College to install such a field but have to raise about $5mil. Guess where that money will come from?

In about 8 years when Bracht field is looking sad and tired, it will then become apparent to local taxpayers how expensive it is to maintain such a field. You can't just "throw down a little seed" the whole field will have to be replaced. Guess where that money will come from?
