We used to call a story like this "polishing a t-u-r-d"... Since when did losing less money become the same as earning money?? If I work and someone gives me a dollar , I earned a dollar... If I play the 2 dollar lotto and "win" a dollar ,I still LOST A DOLLAR!!! BTW some of this rental income is coming from our school taxes .. These people are educating our children and they think we will swallow this BS??

That should be a *RED ALERT* that nobody will buy it.

Why can't it be sold? Because taxes are too high? Because of lack of businesses? Lack of leadership?

Yes.

Here, idiot leadership of the school district:

Look at what Schodack school district is doing, they're dedicating an entire building to a business incubator. Free rent for anyone who has a good business proposal in exchange for kids working there getting real world experience. It's a win-win for the local economy, the kids and the school district.

"The Maple Hill Middle School basement is home to three start-up companies. MICROrganic Technologies, Tumalow Energy Ingenuity and SmartKids NY take up about a third of the basement. Horan says he's inviting more companies in to tour the space and expects additional tenants."
