The Facilities Planning Committee will meet again Wednesday, August 20, at 6:30 p.m. Question: How many guests from the general public does it take to prevent heckling of FPC members who want to talk about downsizing the core of the new high school in response to the latest enrollment projections? Answer: More than 3.

The DeKalb Area Women’s Center is still in need of cleanup help resulting from the blown-over chimney. They haven’t had an estimator out so I’m not talking about getting on the roof yet, just about picking up the rubble from the ground. Let me know which of the next 3 weekends (NOT including this one, the 15th-16th) you’d be willing and able to join a work crew and whether a Friday or Saturday would suit you best. You can commit yourself here or via e-mail (yinn422ATyahooDOTcom). As soon as we have a group and a date I’ll find out whether we’ll need to rent a Dumpster so if anyone has inside info on that, let me know.
