Beach Slapped

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 10th, 2013

One of the great things about living in America is that the government has to be accountable to you, the taxpaying citizen. Fearful that you may at any time put down your PBR, rise from your Barco-lounger and actually go vote -- sure, itís for American Idol, but whatever -- your government likes to keep you posted.

For instance, the Lincoln County School District would like you to know how things are going with the $63 million bond that you passed in 2011. From reading the district website things are going very well. This excited me very much, especially since many of the people I actually work with in Taft High School are miserable.

To be fair to the media-meisters at the LCSD, this is actually an improvement.

Two years ago I wrote about the totally screwed up heating system at Taft High School 7-12: ďNothing warms the heart like seeing students bundled up in parkas and mittens to learn algebra, unless itís the heating system going berserk and superheating your classroom to 83 degrees.Ē

And thatís why miserable is good: It doesnít involve sweating anymore. The superheating issue is gone. (For now, anyway.) That, or the staff that complain about their rooms spiking into the 70s simply melted and died.
