I think there's a glitch on this post. Is anyone else having problems with their comments going into some sort of moderation queue? I've heard a few complaints and I'm trying to figure out what people are experiencing so I can report it to the help desk.

The public has been clearly misled by the Board. They ordered the appraisal that way but failed to inform the people of the "virtual school. “They used that inflated appraisal to convince everyone what a great bye the SCM property was thus gaining approval of the referendum....

No problems here, but I think you have the perfect opportunity to bring the truth about this appraisal (including the criminal background of one appraiser) to the public in a separate story. The school district never pointed out the extraordinary assumptions when they referenced this lofty number as part of their value argument.

Well from my honest opinion, I don't think the undisclosure of the mold problems was intentional at all. There is absolutely nothing to fret about and get all worked up. Mold, leakage and deterioration are common factors found in a building that has been vacant for quite sometime. And mold removal can be done easily in just a short period of time if that's really necessary. Perhaps the $8m has already included the mold removal services too. - http://www.mold-removal-toronto.com
