Sky High

Congratulations to the Barker School District on the makeover at the high school. The renovations include a new science wing, renovated classrooms, new chemistry, physics and biology labs and a redesigned earth science room.

In addition, the classrooms were also supplied with interactive whiteboards, which are dry erase boards that connect to a computer. Anything that is written on them can appear on the computer screen. Computers can also be connected to a projector, which makes displaying information in front of a large audience easier.

Each classroom has more storage space for the required chemicals and supplies for the high school curriculum. Desks and science workstations have enough space to allow teacher supervision. Along with the classrooms, a locker area was also redesigned for security and supervisory purposes. The area is now known as “The Commons,” and has more space and better lighting.

At this point, the only thing left to do is give proper recognition to those who made this massive renovation possible. Would a name change from Barker High School to AES High be too obvious?

We should name something after Shoemaker too. The Fast Eddie Commons? I'm open to suggestions.

For the last year we have been subjected to the incessant rantings of Merrill Bender and Bill Leardini claiming that the sky is falling and life in Barker would change forever. So far, the only real change has been new lockers and science labs. So what does that mean? Is Merrill Bender nothing more than an opportunist that used lies and fear as a tool to win an election? Every passing day seems to confirm that.

...and by the way, Bill Leardini was just as wrong as Merrill Bender. I have heard that he now works or consults for the Lockport School District. Could somebody confirm this?

Dark Knight said...

Guys like Leardini are today's version of travelling snake oil salesman. They go from district to district preaching fiscal accountability while they line their own pockets with our money.

It'd be nice to see the press do a cover story on how much this guy's taken over the years.

Can anyone confirm the Henry and George Mazairz are trying to cut deals to give Henry a free ride to run for Senate if George runs for congress?

No but I see that George gave the county GOP at least 60k in money this last election.

It's not AES it's called EXCEL money and school district in Niagara County is using it to do projects. See what happens to Barker School district taxes this year because of AES then pat yourself on the back.

Nicky,

Hold the press. The top Republican in Niagara County gave money to the Republican Party to help finance the campagins of Republican candidates.

I'm shocked, yes shocked and appalled, I tell ya. Thank heavens you have brought this stunning story to light.

Jack Davis game more than $16,000 to the NC Dems in 06 and 07. Schimminger gave $1,000. Even John LaFlace gave $1,000. DelMonte gave less than $500. So, who's the top Dem in NC? A guy from Akron? Tonawanda? Kenmore?

HEY- FAT BOY TONY & ANON- A LITTLE TOUCHY ABOUT SENATOR "BOY" GEORGE BUYING VOTES TO PRESERVE HIS CONTROL OF THE COUNTY? THE OTHER GUYS DIDN'T PUMP 60K IN AT THE END TO BUY AN ELECTION.....THE QUESTION IS WHAT JOB WILL GEORGE GET MIKE CARNEY TO BUY HIS SILENCE?

Clancy said...

fat tony- "News"? This blog is all about shilling for the GOP not news. I wonder if the Senator has people with political jobs posting this thing?

Wow, the Niagara County Dems have obviously not gotten over the ass whooping they took in November. Instead of crowing at the victors, you should be in a room plotting your strategy for two years. But you're too short-sighted. It's easier to come in here and say George this and Henry that. It's pathetic. You got crushed, and after four years of getting crushed, you're still spouting the same garbage.

I'm going to go out on a limb now and say your issues in 2009 will be, in no particular order, AES, attorneys, Mt. View, AES, IDA, AES, AES and AES. Blah, blah, blah.

You got beat. Show a little class and take it like men. All you're doing on this board is reinforcing why you gut your collective asses kicked in the first place.

Pete M said...

By the way, if this blog is a shill for the NC GOP, GOOD FOR THEM! They obviously are on to something YOU neglected. If it is a GOP site, start a Dem site. That's the beauty of the internet, anyone can do it. I know alot of people who read this blog for news and opinion. ONCE AGAIN, the GOP is 5,000 steps ahead of the NC Dems. Don't like it? START YOUR OWN!! My God, all you people do is complain about the party that has EVERY RIGHT to gloat. Until you show different results, you should be focusing on YOUR efforts to improve your success in the NC political arena.

Fat Tony said...

I'm not sensitive at all, quamut. Raising money for campaigns is part of the game. Did George walk around buying votes by handing people $50 bills?

No, he helped finance the GOP campaigns much like other politicians and party leaders do. The fact that George donates more says something about his ability to fundraise.

These Maziarz haters...get over it.

Barker school district is so ungrateful for what AES has given the school. There is no way that other schools in Niagara County could even afford smart boards. They were the first in Eastern Niagara County to have a pool and a huge auditorium. That school has only had the best of the best and like always they're ungrateful.
