One word. Schools. No, not the rank and file. They always get the short end of the stick. I mean why, after all these years, are the Superintendent and staff still hiding out in Town Hall? Yeah, silly question. Why do we let them get away with it?

And, Holy Jesus, how about school buses? Anyone looked at that cost recently and NOT thought independent contractors would do it lots cheaper?

How about some input, guys, before they redline your own jobs.

Where's the Wareham waste?

bill i dont know where all the waste is however one issue i have is the annex school.  9_12 if you are a behavior problem you go to the old gateway playhouse and spend your relaxing day not having to follow the rules.  i met the principal to this school  and can only imagine what his salary is.  how much do we detract from our own children while we bend over backwards for delinquints who cant follow the rules.  cut the 80,000principal and just get a couple corrections officers.  it will be like career training for the little criminals. 
  by the by love bruces comments about how a family tightens their budget in hard times and cuts expenses .  considering he does not have a family or a budget.  he does have a 30000 & tax lien though so i guess he is an expert at something.

funny in all that discussion last night they didnt discuss increase in the legal expenditure  500000K
or the 2 million dollar patch of eel grass no one knows what to do with

or the open invitations to sue the town.

ihateliz, that's the best mispelled, no cap, no punctuation post I've ever read.

Once upon a time, a compentent reporter could feed off that a week. And get paid for it.

Hey, if I didn't know any better, I'd think Pondside was posting...But the spell check would not need to be just for Ihateliz, I hateslager.  I myself would love a spell check on the site.  I feel embarrassed when I mistype or misspell a word.

I installed one but it sucked and I disabled it. There is another solution, though, one I employ myself. Below are spell checkers for the primary web browsers, preceded by the percentage of this site's visitors who use them. Just click on the links and install.

64.50% : Microsoft IE

9.81%  : Firefox

5.44%  : Opera

6.46%  : Safari. Mac OS X supports a system-wide built-in spell checker.
