Where do you think this $8 billion is really coming from and how does it magically become $30 billion? I'm a federal tax payer and a state tax payer; I say that it will come from me. If other states want to hitch their donkeys to the federal trough; let them; they will only become less competitive in the long run. I would rather help the efforts of organizations like Mercy Health Clinic, et al. and keep Federal manipulation and individual dependency on government out of the picture.posted @ Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - 23:16

I am NOT proposing to base our schools on what NYC does. I don't hear a lot stories about kids on NYC public transit becoming victims of crimes. I do hear stories of children being victims of crimes while on a school bus with cameras rolling. What I am trying to do is solve a budget problem using a little creativity. I believe students riding public transit can do it safely. Believe it or not, the idea has been received well. You are the first to raise an objection; I think that is great!posted @ Friday, October 22, 2010 - 16:10
The idea came from New York City where there are some 250,000 high school age kids that take public transportation to school. I did not make this recommendation for middle and elementary school kids nor would I. I do see the efficiencies that can be gained from using public transit. We as a community have already deemed the bus a safe for children to ride in as much as children 12 years and older can ride the bus unaccompanied.posted @ Friday, October 22, 2010 - 14:36
I would like to clarify my experience with Athens Tech. I was not a construction instructor as Mr. Blackburn wrote. My wife Mary and I started a GED class in Rocksprings Homes under the auspices of Athens Tech; as the lead teacher I was an adjunct instructor with Athens Tech. At the time this was the first in-town location for the Athens Tech GED program. We later moved the class to Alps Road Elementary School. I was involved with the program for about 2 years.posted @ Friday, October 22, 2010 - 12:23
