I talked to someone at Divots and it will be closed so the Gulf Breeze apartment complex from Gulfway drive can be rebuilt on the site. I asked the owner if he was going to start up somewhere else and he said he was ran off the land and was moving on to something else. I assume he leased the land.

Hmmm... I thought he owned that land, but I heard that indirectly through a regular there. 

In other news related to real estate, I *think* the townhome development that was scheduled for the intersection of 73 and 25th (therefore in PNGISD) is on hold.  The original developer must have pulled out since the property is being advertised on loopnet.  The ad mentions that townhome plans are available.

I could be wrong though.

When I went in I asked about it and the guy sitting down just said he was being ran off. I asked if he planned on opening up somewhere else and he said no, that he was going to have to figure out something else to do. He did not sound too happy. He really seemed to blow me off as if he was mad that I even asked.

I'm assuming that, since we're discussing it here, Divots is in PNGISD?  Can we be lucky enough for it to be in PAISD?

I just talked to a school board member while I was at the stadium taking pictures.  The "old" gym will be renovated.  This is not a bad thing.  They have overcome the deficit, and are sitting even again.  The contractor has assured them that he can accomplish his task while preserving the art work.  I'm not sure that it will remain where it is, but it will be preserved. Also the gym will be air conditioned so that events can be held in with enough room to seat everyone.

Im glad they are keeping the old gym and IMO its still better than the new one. If they had done it right they would have originally refurbished it and used the money for the new one in other places.

When he/she told you they were "sitting even again" does that include not working the baseball or softball fields as someone posted on here a couple weeks ago? I also thought the original plan was to tear down the old/new senior wing of the HS, is that still going to happen? These aren't meant to be sarcastic questions, I really want to know.

They are breaking ground on the new wing for the high school.  It is going to eat up some of the current parking.

I would like to say this much about the planetarium:

The best memories I have of elementary school are the annual trips to the planetarium. You can ask just about any of the current high school students and they'll tell you the same thing. I can also remember the community shows. The astronomy teacher would charge something like $5 a person and the money went into the science budget. In addition, they had schools coming from as far away as Jasper to use that planetarium, all of whom paid to use it. That planetarium's value wasnt just educational, it was monetary. The fact that it is being torn down is one of the few things that I would change about this bond if I had the power to do so.

I.... We will miss that planetarium.

The thing about being an Indian is that you're an Indian, no matter what. It doesn't matter if you play soccer or a tuba, it doesn't matter if you're on the football team or the drill team, it doesn't matter if you lead the cheers or the jeers. You're still part of that "Honor, Pride, & Tradition."

They started to build the planetarium my senior year. It was built where the old "patio" off the cafeteria was. The patio was a place everyone hung out at after lunch. That is also where the Totem Pole was located. I remember I hated to see the patio being tore up for the Planetarium. Mr. Shoemaker (Johnny Red as some students called him) was over the Planetarium. He at one time was one of my science teachers, before the planetarium days.

In the olden days, the patio area was where students went to smoke after lunch.  You could also go off campus for lunch if you wanted to. The teachers would use a paddle, also, when you didn't follow school rules.  Students learned back then whether they wanted to or not. PN was even more cosmopolitan.  PN had two movie theatres, three clothing establishments, a bicycle shop, two car dealerships, a paint store, a lumber yard, a furniture store, and many other businesses.  Oh, I love this progress we've made.

The upperclassmen are still allowed to leave the campus for lunch.

The cafeteria still has a patio. Its the outdoor area between the cafeteria and the library.

I didnt know that Port Neches had all that stuff. And now we're down to a bunch of fast food joints and a grocery store. The only recreational thing you can do is fish.  :fish:
