Not a Greenie. Not a West ender. Don't own a rent house in Beaumont. Can't make money doing that. Own 10 acres and pay more taxes than you. Man, I got both of you riled up over things that will happen. You will see.

Funny things at play here.  You assume that you know how much I pay in city tax (by stating that you pay more taxes than myself and Jag Insider) .  

Also, I do believe you have close ties to Beaumont as you pay taxes here.  Seemed to me that you got pretty ruffled at the comments about Central and seem invested with South Park.  

But whatever.  

The entire situation will be handled accordingly with or without your consent...

Not ruffled at all. Stating some facts about BISD gets people all stirred up. Maybe I don't pay more taxes than you, but you made quite a few assumptions about me too. Your consent will have nothing to do with the outcome either.

I thought votes counts as consent...

Can somebody answer me this?  Why was Ozen opened in the first place?

It didn't seem to make sense only 12 years after BISD consolidated four high schools (French, Beaumont-Charlton-Pollard, West Brook and South Park) into 2 (Central and West Brook) to open a new high school.  What was the impetus behind that as it sure didn't make fiscal sense.

Good question...

Its not like this hasn't happened before.  South Park, Hebert & Forest Park  became West Brook then French & BCP became Central.  Things change and maybe its time again.

.... Only if it's a close race and your vote could be considered the deciding vote. Two or more votes either way, your vote means nothing. Why do I bother?

Completely disagree.

Vote means everything.

Votes matter.

How is it possible to determine whose votes matter and whose doesn't?

9 people voting....... Ends up 5-4.... Your vote mattered. 6-3, throw your vote out the window, or take your pick.

Voting is not just about math.

I have seen losing votes matter in many ways.

Ok here is my one corny moment. I have always liked a similar color pattern to the old TJ Yellow Jackets with the name Gladiators

When West Orange Cove and Stark High combined to become WOS in 1977 the kids got to vote on school colors and mascot. It was not a popular decision at the time, but it was the right decision for the school district.  I was a West Orange Chief and I have a lot of friends who were Stark Tigers, Now we all sit together at WOS games.

Wishing? Just a fact of life. Yes, they will move their players to other towns. I also forgot that Beaumont students can attend the achool of their choice so there has already been some jockeying for positions. I couldn't care less where they go. I don't live in Nederland. I pay Beaumont taxes.

I could care less/ I couldn't care

(thank me later *wink)*

I've had several close relatives that's walked through those halls, the Middle School, that is.  I would know.  The people still holding on to the high school days and made a big stink about its demolition didn't even have kids or relatives there and just wanted the old eyesore to remain, only because of nostalgia purposes...  

Central has been in poor condition for at least 20 years.  I assume that Harvey only made things worse as Harvey couldn't have made things better...

Thank you!

How much do you want to put on that? Mine says I am at the bottom of caring.....I could not care any less, which is what one is trying to convey.

Ok, we are getting off into left field here and rehashing things that happened 30 years ago or more.  They are done and nobody can go back and change them.

If they go to one high school, IF, I think the Maroon and Gold theme is good and would go for Leopards as the mascot. Gold Leopard with Maroon spots.

Leopards is good, but I still like the Mighty Ocelots....
