Not good Colonial Beach...

The school system where I went to high school is under investigation.

"Audit figures for the past five years show that the board spent $469,000 more than it received in revenues."

First of all, it doesn't mean anything that they spent more than they received in revenues...after all it's the American way. But that $469,000 could have gone to so many needs in the town. CB could have paid for higher grade sand on the beach. They could have saved the money for when the next tropical storm comes and knocks out the pier. They could have built a golf cart store (if you've been to CB, you know what I mean).

The new school board should go clean house and make me proud as an alumnus! I might go back for another reunion...
