WBASD: A round of applause for the broke and the broken

Where would you dig, trench, auger, drill or bore?

RED denotes the approximate location of underground electric power lines, cable, conduit or lighting cables.

YELLOW denotes the approximate location of underground gas, oil, steam, petroleum or gaseous materials.

ORANGE denotes the approximate location of underground communication, alarm or signal lines, cables or conduit and traffic loops.

After the factoring of varying tolerance zones, are you feeling lucky? Brave?

I'm still here to post about it, so I nailed that one.

So, the retiring school board honcho recieved a standing ovation from the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board members that have not done time in the clink. What the fu>k are those people thinking?

And while the honcho retires with a 100% taxpayer-provided pension, a board member caught up in all of the celebratory hoopla dons a pair of wrap-around shades in an attempt to mock a scornful taxpayer. If you voted for him, admit it, you fu>ked up.

Meanwhile, the physical plant fails right before our eyes.

We need to remodel three high schools, or build a new one. But the school district can afford neither.

The school district is bleeding red ink, yet awards raises with each and every teacher contract.

Wilkes-Barre students repeatedly score well below average.

Teachers are forced to teach kids who can't speak a word of English.

Federal investigators have proven that teachers in the district were hired after they delivered brown bags stuffed with cash.

GAR athletes are ejected from District II sporting events with alarming regularity.

While the teachers and administrators accrue millions in unused/payable sick days, student-athletes, predominantly female, are forced to finance the purchase of their own uniforms.

The district solicitor overbilled the district with impunity, and now seems headed off to the hoosegow.

Just as soon as the board relented to taxpayer demands by ordering an independent forensic audit of all finances, the retiring honcho, fresh off his new 3-year contract extension ups and hints that he's retiring.

And what's the going rate on a teaching gig these days?

Yep. Standing O for everybody! Pats on the back all the way around! Great job! The Wilkes-Barre Area School District is the model that all others need to avoid like warts on genitals, but why sweat it?

A round of applause for the broke and the broken.

Now vote the lot of them into submission!

and please don't forget the WB school board member who came within a couple of hundred votes of being re elected AFTER the feds had clapped handcuffs on him .....he got over 800 votes if memory serves and that was in an election cycle where 1100 votes would have seen you elected I believe ....walk in pull the D lever ....go home

Piazza? Height? Dunn?

It's a tad difficult to remember how many scofflaws have been taken down by the Feds in this Democrat-controlled county know known for it's generations-long embedded corruption.

Still, the teat-sucking, easily-led, card-carrying Democrats still root, root, root for the home team.

It's a Scumbagocracy!
