the school board will weasel their way out of this.after all,they know nothing about construction.the schools that were built here in the 1920's are still strong.where will this building be in a hundred years?after they sink another million into it they'll still have a white elephant.those old buildings will never be matched.pretty doesn't mean it's good.new doesn't mean better.this will be someone's money pit.

Rumor is the departing emperors want to hand-pick Varner as Superintendent and Murphy as Assistant Superintendent. That is no joke. This came from several county employees.

The fault will not be McKinley and Associates, PCS or Marshall County Schools since these 3 organizations are doing the "investigation". It will be the weather, lack of workers and lack of supplies due to coal oil and gas industry.

Plus several of the county administrators are retiring so they do not have to answer for this mess.

boxerboy, your unsubstantiated remarks about David McKinley are lies and slander. Typical sleazy Democrit political tactics. Provide proof of those claims, or you prove yourself once again to be just a typical sleazy Democrit tool.

How do Democrits fight political campaigns? They lie about their opponents and then walk away from their dishonest smears. Having no moral values probably makes that easy for you.

14 month delay. $500,000 over budget.

Who's responsible:

1) Adherence to a low-bid contract system.

2) Numerous change orders during construction. (It will be interesting to what comes from the audit meeting on the project.)

3) Surely not anyone on the school board or affiliated with the school district. THEY NEVER ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANYTHING!

"taxpayer ripped off again.a brand new building that needs a fulltime babysitter because it's a problem building.when a building goes over cost and over schedule this is what you can expect."

Talk to David McKinley about it. How do Republicans make money and keep money? They steal it from the general public and then walk away from their responsibilities.

"to bust," Simms said."

sad that an educated person does not know that the word is 'burst,' not 'bust,' which is a noun and not a verb.

"They were designed to alternate different areas," said Mizer, noting the manufacturer did not provide the necessary equipment for that function and that the system was not wired for sequencing."

My Lexus would be a problem with crossed wires....Is the "new" green idea to heat the outside of the building?

That would be like needing a "modern" mechanic with you when you drive your 2013 Lexus. New technology and all!

taxpayer ripped off again.a brand new building that needs a fulltime babysitter because it's a problem building.when a building goes over cost and over schedule this is what you can expect.when your brand new building is junk you have a problem.your school board failed on this miserably.wait til the cracks show up[and they will].this place will be a maintenance man's nightmare.you gotta watch those contractors.
