Albemarle County Spends $360k For 3 Elementary School Playgrounds
Priorities, people, priorities. Obesity is a national (and local) epidemic, and this is just a logical response to the problem. Sure, it would have been hundreds of thousands of dollars cheaper to hire a few playground aides and buy some new balls, bats, bases, nets, racquets, goals, etc. But quit yer bellyachin'! It makes up for closing the beaches 2 weeks early due to lack of funds. Besides, with 260 additional, unexpected students enrolling this Fall, they've gotta put them somewhere.
