Some “get it” – some don’t!

This LEGAL NOTICE in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster seeks someone to serve on the School Board.

So maybe, it’s because a floodlight was directed to that Board’s illicit disdain of transparency. That School Board has learned a lesson: when there’s a vacancy, let the citizens know about it, before considering someone to appoint to the position.

That’s something the Columbia Borough School Board has not done; appearances are this  Board has even appointed persons well in advance of any community announcement.

Heck, it appears they’ve even appointed someone who may not have met the residency stipulation: School Board directors must be “a resident of the school district for at least one year prior to the date of election or appointment.”

The Columbia Borough School Board still doesn’t get it when it comes to keeping information current; though personnel changes were made on the School Board directors – the Website has not been updated. 

Sad! Even the NEW Website, which is attractive, easy-to-navigate and fast-loading, has not been updated.

Verizon wins takover bid for Yahoo

  • Yesterday’s announcement of the big acquisition ($4.8 billion) has many shaking their heads? A “yard sale” opportunity of mammoth scale: getting to buy something that once had “worth” of $140 billion for less than three percent of its “worth!” Too good to be true. Appears Verizon is buying into this Richard Carlson quote: “The old adage, ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is’ isn’t always correct. In fact, the suspicion, cynicism, and doubt that are inherent in this belief can and does keep people from taking advantage of excellent opportunities.”
