Ocram:No offense taken but thanks for the rational words. I too am tired of the name calling on the blogs.
In theory I believe finding out what the wants of the community are sounds legitimate. My concern lies in what our community would do with the results. If the majority said no to a school, would the ones if favor really need to abide by that including the school district and city council(that is assuming they vote in favor for a high school). On the other side, if the majority said yes to a school, would the ones opposed really be okay with that. They may still have a bad taste left especially if they live near it. I am just not sure a vote would truly resolve the communities concerns.
Possibly a win-win for our community would be if someone who owns about 6 to 8 acres, that is not near single family homes on the island steps up to the plate and donates their land to the school district. The land owner would get a decent right off due to donating to a non-profit, the residential areas would not be disturbed, and the kids would get another high school choice. Note this is not an easy task to find but maybe someone reading this blog knows someone who owns some commercial land who would like to have their name on a school building. Similar to Bill Rose's donation that led to the Rose Hall building at the library. Just throwing this out there as a possible solution to all parties in our community.
