I heard a rumor the funds have been raised by an anonymous donation.

Several of us commented on the price @ $570,000 being waaaay low and if done the original way you are at the 1.2-1.5 million.  AC, etc... Not half way with no AC, etc... As indicated lately.

2 questions, in my mind, what will happen to the donations -
1. will the district keep the money at a minimal interest rate of return in the bank, invest it or give it back to the ABC and or donors????

2. Could we use bond money -if passed- to make up the difference.

Lastly, what is the time frame now? Will this current group of athletes still be in school?

A 35 yard field would be a joke.  50 yards should be the minimum.  Anything less, why even build it?

The money is not there AGAIN $500,000=metal building no AC, no elect, plumbing,  35yds, walk in the rain, lightning to get there.

$1,200,000=multi purpose facility as proposed by the PNGABC plumbing, AC, 50yd,etc...

Egg all over the place.  Ones getting screwed are the 2 donators who's kid/nephew will be graduated and still no REAL multi purpose.

Call a spade a spade--not enough $ to make it work.  Now the School District has $370,000 dollars of donations ($100 mine)  we could for something else.

What a deal for us!
One of the several gyms are better options.

With all the Tax breaks and the tax payers who have to breathe the crap from Huntsman, Total, BASF....etc you'd think they want to donate to the cause. Guess big oil is to greedy!!! I'd say our School Board needs to stop given them Tax breaks.

Any word on why the SB added a bunch more cheerleaders to the squad after the fact?  One of the teachers said they added 4/5 others?  Sounded unusual.

Why does the school board have any say so about cheerleaders?  Do they determine other groups participation levels?

Speaking as a PNG grad and lifetime supporter, as painful as it is to acknowledge, this really makes the district look foolish.

had a parent complain, not this parents 1st time to do so I am told, so they added 4 cheerleaders bringing the total to 18!!!

only sponsor with any backbone is Comeaux who DID stand up to this SB and blocked their strongarm tactics earlier this year over the same type of stuff, I am told with the same parent.

you can bet ALL the others know who made it in  tryouts and who was placed on the squad.

1. The county grants the refineries their tax breaks, EVERY time they question the values.  EVERY TIME.

2. The SB did not add cheerleaders to the cheer team.

Not correct, the cheer squad added 4 more cheer leaders after the original try out because of pressure from a parent/parents.

If you know a SB member ask them about the adding of 4 extra cheer leaders.

BTW we did it when Dr Creels daughter didn't make it.  Matter of fact.

We now have 18 cheerleaders, matter of fact, 4 more than we had.
Last I will comment, but please ask a student, cheer leader, Teacher, SB member might not admit it.

Very respectfully, to say 4 girls were NOT added after the fact due to pressure from parent/parents is not correct

There were 4 added, but the total is 16 now, not 18.  There were 12 varsity cheerleaders before tryouts. Crazy if you ask me. Doesn't teach these girls anything. In life, there will be times that they don't get something they want.

Funny thing is all the conspirators - meaning School Board, Dr. Keith, Dr. Canavess have to go in public knowing they were out gunned by a parent.

To clear it up ---- If you don't think the  Principal, Sup and SB knew, whatever.

???? :stop:s :stop: :stop: on page 3 of the April 23 approved minutes.  I am flipping back and forth IT IS A FACT.  Kinda hate to bring up this stuff, but I do keep up with my city, county and school business.

$108,000,000 tax value benefit,  how do you interpret that?????

Correct me if I'm wrong, but any tax break the county provides (except for a lower appraisal, obviously) comes at the expense of county funds, not school district funds, correct?

I don't think the county can agree to a tax abatement using school district money, or city or state money, for that matter. It has to come out of the county's share of the tax revenue. Otherwise, "independent school districts" would be independent in name only.

Port Neches-Groves Independent School District approved an agreement in late April with Total that amounts to a $108 million tax benefit over the course of a 15-year agreement with PN-GISD seeing a benefit of $7.5 million over the life of the agreement.
Also in April, Jefferson County Commissioners granted Total a 10 year tax abatement.
