To Conclude and Broadcast the Specific outcome of this meeting between the Beaufort County School Board, and the Beaufort County Board of Commissioners:

There was a big show exhibiting that Beaufort County Schools will receive a around $42,000,000.00 from the so-called Education Lottery to build one mega school for the Washington area, in a time with a static student population at $383.00 per square foot, providing that the Beaufort County Taxpayers match about $12,000,000.00 in taxpayer funding.

The vote by the Beaufort County Commissioners was: In the affirmative of 5 was the Center-Left Coalition Members Bill Booth, Randy Walker, Jerry Langley, Frankie Waters and John Rebholz; voting in the negative of 2 were Republican County Commissioners Hood Richardson and Stan Deatherage.

There is no firm knowledge at this point where the funding will exactly come from. There has been no discussion by the controlling Center-Left Coalition as to whether a bond referendum for the money, and to discern the wishes of the people would be appropriate.
