    We can only hope that Palazzolo’s trial begins in September-October prior to the Bond election. Maybe the other lawsuits and grievances will also hit so taxpayers see what the incumbent Board and Dansby are really like.

    It’s funny in the article in the Star-Telegram yesterday, the district praised the former students of the district that went on to great careers in the arts, all w/o having a dedicated fine arts academy. It is absurd that we should pay more than $76,000 per student for a fine arts academy. As I’ve asked before who owns the land or building that this academy is going to built on. who stands to benefit financially from this school. Not the district. Those students are already recieving training in the fine arts. We don’t need it. Unfortunately, Walter has tied both of these specialty schools togther meaning it will probably pass because almost everyone supports the STEM school. Please go to these meetings and voice your displeasure at the way the whole bond has been hnadled. Then in Nov. vote against it.

    Time to expose the biggest Bond rumor of the past 90 days: supposedly the construction contract has already been promised to none other than Issac Manning (Dickerson’ buddy and partner in “Citizens for Great Schools”) by none other than Walter Dansby – self styled guru of Bond issues. Funny. How could that be? We don’t even know what work is to be done – the vote is not in. Not to let details get in the way…… Dansby knows how to by-pass the small stuff like bidding and transparency.
