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?


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."
