Christine, Well that was a much better response. If you want to sell something, I guess that would be the right way to do it. I have already sent 2 kids through the system and still have a sophomore at the high school. I personally do not think the education they get there is top notch, mostly not because of the building, but because of our approach. That is a whole other issue. The issue today in my mind is what is the best project for the town. I would like to see a better facility. I just do not like the project. It is being crammed into the site. I do not think it is right to tear down a building that has nothing wrong with it. I hate to say it but Mark Nelson is right. Buying the farm is a win win situation. I would debate anyone on that anytime.

I was under the impression that the farm was not for sale. Is that the case?

Hi Stacey- I graduated in 1980 from Wilmington Hight School. When I was t here, the Industrial Arts Dept was where our gym is today, auditorium seats were older, the windows throughout the building have since ben replaced, the library has been moved to where the English rooms were, the science labs are where drafting rooms were and the track has been replaced since 1980. As you stated, there have been many renovations and additions since the building has ben built. Are you saying that we cannot continue to renovate as we have based on your posting.? I do have a question, will the building of a new high school affect the Fourth of July activities in future years? Nobody has adressed this and I was curious. Frank West Class of 1980 WHS

Frank, that is a question I had not thought of. Let me look into that for for you and see how, if at all, the Fourth of July festivities might be impacted by a potential build.

The BUILDING is an embarrassment--do not twist my words. I am proud of the education my three children are receiving or they wouldn't be there...AND I never said they deserve a new high school--that's a ridiculous argument--you are the bizarre one my dear..And I still say that I will put my money where my mouth is on this project--I think it's your "strat" that needs attention.
