That is that Why can't our locall high school seniors have "Open Campus " lunch as many high school districts around the country have this as well ? The High School in Federal Way Washington where my nephews and niece graduated from and has Open Campus Lunch . Why Can't our local high

Huntsville on the right Track for know

I would like to see our locall high students given the same perks and privlages as open campus lunch'? Why is it that High School Students in Lake Forest IL. Or Pacific Palisades CA. Can have this? But yet our Local education administration refuses to even consider this. I ask a question, why do we here in the south have to be so far behind the rest of the country when it comes to more foreword thinking ideas?

Open minded attitude

As Huntsville continues to grow and will be for sometime. Why do we continue to be so behind the curve? Why is it that a High school Senior out in Pacific Palisades CA can go out and get an In and out burger for lunch but yet our local High districts won't give our locall high school Seniors and Juniors the same privilege and perks as well. WHY???? Food court lunchrooms Are Tending as well are High School Coffee shops.... more »

Old school Vs New School?

I've been asking a lot questions lately about and our local officials is why the fact are we are so behind the rest of the country? I'm saying that Alabama was one of the last States in the Country to afford us to purchase personal "Vanity Tags" as well as Alabama was the last State in wich I 65 was completed through. SERIOUSLY FOLKS why can' we be open to high school.".

Weekend bus service to trail heads

The North Alabama Land Trust and Alabama Rivers Alliance have built and maintained some pretty cool spots where Huntsville and Madison County residents can opt to be outside! But they are only open to those with automobiles. Working in conjunction with the various transit agencies in North Alabama and the Huntsville Metro, it would be cool to have some weekend bus service to some of the more popular trails and recreational... more »

Deep South Ideological Mindset!!!

I don' t know why, some people here locally are so slow to to accept national trends. I have ONE serious question for our local school and state education officials,that is if high school senior's in Malibu can go and get an "In and Out burger for thier lunch, why can't our local high seniors be given the same latitude. To have open campus lunch as well. If the BIG City and West,and East coastal communities can do this,... more »

Actually work on Zierdt Road

If the city actually expects to finish Zierdt Road in 2023 (note that's only the portion going to Martin Road, not the long expanse going further south, which is where most of the residents live), that will require actually doing work. It won't happen by magic. It's as if the city is coming up with new and novel approaches to make this take as long as humanly possible. Yes you will occasionally see a couple of trucks... more »
