Comments: Now now that used to be a scary rutted out alley from what they told the grant people. Never mind it didn't even go all the way to the parking lot or that it didn't even go all the way to the cross alley. Those are just technicalities. You all are just naysayers!

Comments: Don't be picking on little Andrews fashionable attire. He's simply stunning. And that's okay because I think everyone should be free to live their life their way. Also, yes the new alley is drab and leads to a pile of trash but I like the lights and stone. My only criticism is the should have painted the curvy path yellow- you know like in the Wizard of Oz! Don't be too hard on Andrew because the alley doesn't have any green space. Budgeting and planning aren't the little fellas strong point. And why put out big empty pots now- they'd just get filled with cigarette but+s and trash.

Comments: Reading about that sham meeting MCS is having. Anyone think they won't do what they've been wanting to do led by Bolinger for way over a year?
They eventually will say we listened and engaged "stakeholders" (the popular word around here) but we have to make this tough decision and your 5th graders will wind up at Junior Hi, EO Muncie will close, Anderson will re-open.
Oh, and you Deputy folks..you think if the 5th grade goes away from there they will keep it open for just 1st thru 4th? Wake up.

Comments: MCS is having a very important meeting tonite for elementary school parents. This is about possibly moving 5th graders to the Junior High beginning next school year. This would also open the door for them to close E.O. Muncie.
"As you may be aware, the Madison Consolidated Schools Board of Trustees is considering how best to use our corporation facilities. The Board has reached out to the community with a survey and community conversation meetings. The Board also met with our current fifth grade teachers and parents of our fourth grade students to hear their suggestions. The Board invites you, as a parent or guardian of an elementary student, to meet and share your thoughts as they consider the possibility of moving all fifth grade students to Madison Junior High School for the 2016-2017 school year. The meeting will be held on Monday, November 23, at 5:30 p.m. in the Madison Junior High School media center. Please plan to attend. "

Comments: Everyone I've talked to about the 100K alley that would make a closet look big, have one thing to say. What a waste of $100,000 dollars.
What a tourist attraction between a bar and a subway and when you get to the south end...a wonderful tour awaits of garbage bins. Aaaah, the aroma in the summertime!

Comments: If we had homeless in Madison, the $100,000 Andrew's alley cost would buy 10 mini homes or 20 pods, but thankfully none of Madison's homeless are homeless
Admin reply: popcorn alley was supposed to be a green space but it looks awful gray with all that concrete

Comments: "Temporary employees, on any given day, have double the risk of dying at work. What's more, it's more likely for temp workers to die on the first day, first week or first month on the job.
So says Ken Montgomery, OSHA's area director in Cincinnati, who, along with worker safety experts and former temporary workers, spoke about the marked increase in temporary workers employed in Greater Cincinnati as well as nationally." --Cincinnati Enquirer, NOV 20 2015
Be careful out there as you work to enrich the powers that be in Madison. You never know if you'll make it home to the family you're struggling to support.
