    7 Foottall,

    You can't call those Hunterdon districts superior.

    I mean, THEIR students don't have the benefit of walking a couple of miles to school, each way, in all kinds of weather. Their...

    If it goes like it did the last time they will get the gym's bleachers installed, and then put a light pole at center court.

    Then the money will run out.

    Pizza Hut does have something of a different vibe - they look to provide a lot of food for not a lot of money. Very much tuned to families.

    Vote to raise your taxes by 10%

    This Tuesday our school board asks us to increase the 2013-2014 budget by over 10%. From approximately $6.7M to $7.3M.

    You have to admire their chutzpah, if not their ethics.

    The rights costed nothing until then, unless individual constituencies felt differently (and many did - but that is, again, a public good).

    Metals? Maybe.

    If you presume that the crazy Fed's pumping will cause inflation, then gold might be a good hedge.
