So, where is the value in this article? It reads like a naive case history which should have been expunged by an experienced supervisor, or, kept confidential. As it describes this guy's path, it tends to shift blame from any structural or building code issues at play. Readers are left to focus on the man and his screw ups.

Smart PR/Community Education move on Ellis' part. Well done. Use ''New Guy'' as a foil to get info out. Helpful, and nicely positioned.

BIG CONGRATS TO FEY. HOWEVER, mom and dad should be arrested for opening her mail. TOO BAD mom can not be charged with putting her own needs over her daughter's. Typical 12309 HELICOPTER PARENT

Jim also played in the most challenging capital district high school basketball game played up until 1967. It was a 4-corners ''keep away game'' between BG and CCHS. BG was undermanned. Coach Blaha drilled his team in wide bounce passes, and baseline only lay-ups on a half court at BG for 8 days.

BG LOST. However, it was a gut wrenching display of discipline and true selflessness.

Miss Rotta needs to find a new job. The grant was whole cloth from its inception. It was based on 12 year old, which are now 16 year old labor market trends and curricula. It was a bait n switch, loss leader from day one. The job title creates a halo effect with no grounds in reality.

This article's 80% of WHAT IF's just goes to support how unrealistic the whole offering has been.

The institution needs to get off the ''health care'' band wagon, get real, and HONEST about labor market entry job preparation.
