To paraphrase Winston Churchill, never in the history of humankind have so many been so bamboozled by so few as have the residents of Juneau. I refer to the insane situation in which the people of Juneau now find themselves in trying to redevelop a second high school. Who came up with the stupid idea of expanding Marie Drake? Marie Drake should be demolished, not refurbished. Someone - tell me this is a hoax so that I can stop crying.
The cabal of crazies that stopped the building of the Valley high school have looted this community on the magnitude of the CEOs that bankrupted Enron. The voters who bought into the drivel of those malcontents should be ashamed of themselves.
The Valley high school should be built as originally designed, and it should be built now. The original design is better and cheaper than anything concerning a remodeled Marie Drake and a cellar garage.
