What's up with the 'owner' thing?

So, earlier today the school system held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Northshore Elementary School, a $20 million project that will serve 900 students.

The 128,000 square foot facility is located on Thunderhead Road.

Anyhoo, during the gathering, the school system handed out these fancy pamphlets (pictured above). Well, check out the details, right under the picture of the school. See that? See where someone thought it would be ingenious to write "owner"?

Yeah, that's going over real well with county officials. See, the County Commission and the School Board are in a little spitting match over whose name - the county or system - should be on the deeds to the various schools. (There's no consistency.)

So, a number of county officials I ran into today over at the ol' Death Star felt that the pamphlet - or at least that little piece of it - was a shot across the bow toward them.

Why is it even necessary?

They're not happy.

So much for all that getting along.

Oh, and by the way, what's up with noting Councilman Nick Della Volpe? Nothing against Nick, but is Northshore technically his stomping grounds? Maybe they should have put Commissioner Dave Wright down, too. (Oh, wait, he's down for tomorrow's Carter deal. Or is he?)


In the meantime, the school looks pretty nice.
