Chamber boosts Valley school plan

Kudos to the Juneau Chamber of Commerce for supporting Juneau's youth and the School Board's desire to provide them with the new high school that Juneau's voters approved.

Building a second-class facility should not be an option. That some Assembly members (and city officials) apparently oppose constructing the new facility as approved by the voters is amazing. Their lack of coherent thought on the topic is alarming. Their stated reasons (saving the few bucks we already voted to spend) are insensitive and arrogant.

Let's listen to our Chamber. Let us, for a change, free our youth from the bondage of short-sighted greed. Let's just build it!
