    Glad I don’t live in Wilkes-Barre because of the SCHOOLS TAX HIKE will put some senior citizens out in the cold.
    Looks more like a college campus layout then a high school.
    Right in a flood area but close to a GOLF COURSE for the teachers.
    Who owns that property now?

      If it floods where this school is being built it would be of biblical proportions.
      stop being so dang negative.
