  1. I like that map too.

    However, I think you'd have quite a lot of upset folks in Champion Forest who've been sending their children to KHS since time began there in the 1970's.

    I think it more realistic to start that boundary line at the RR tracks near Cutten (to include the new Vintage Park area in the new HS zone).

    Other than that, great map!

    You think residents of Champion Forest would be upset being rezoned to a brand new school?

  2. Chris where did you get this info, it is not the same as wht I have seen. Is this something official from KISD?

    No, This is just my own opinion in what I think the plan should be in order to keep the enrollment at Klein Forest down. Klein ISD's Plan is not too much different from mine. They just plan to decrease enrollments at all the other High Schools except from Klein Forest. I just don't think it's fair.

  4. I am realizing the Honda S2000 and home remodeling do not go hand in hand. I am going to sell the car back to carmax and am looking for a truck. 95-08, extended cab, long bed, with less that 60k miles ..price not to exceed 19k. Let me know what you got...

    Nissan Titan or Toyota Tundra

    This is a close-up of the gym floor in the brand-new school, Krimmel Intermediate. It looks and feels like painted concrete. In the bond package, there is a provision to replace the gym floors in the intermediate schools. I hope that Klein ISD is not planning to replace our rubber-coated gym floor at Hildebrandt with this stuff. Our kids came back from a game there and they all complained of shin splints and they were just exhausted, after just one game on that floor. We've played in all-day tournaments at some of the older intermediate schools in the district and not had these types of problems.

    I wonder why they would place concrete in Krimmel. They also have the rubber at Schindewolf though. When I was a student at Schindewolf it was great and comfortable, but kids aften liked to write on it. It's the perfect material to write and do grafitti on. That may be one reason they went to concrete. The rubber does ware after years. It's probably time for Schindewolf's to be replaced.

  6. They could build a new High School south of the Beltway

    It would actually be a waste of money to build a new HS south of the beltway. Klein Forest would have 1,800-2,000 students with the new HS with about the same enrollment when the building capacities are at 3,000 students.

  7. Just a little more information om Elementary Schools #26 and #27. Both buildings will be the exact replicate design of Benignus and Frank (Obviously if you veiwed the schematic designs). The 2 new schools will be 9,540 square feet larger. Benignus andd Frank are both 106,149 square feet and Elementaries 26 and 27 will be approximately 115,689, the largest Elementary school design in the district yet after Kreinhop, Metzler, McDougal and Korhville come in at 108,000 square feet.

  8. The #5 High School will be located on Spring Cypress east of huffsmith, and west of old louetta on the land currently occupied by a private land owner.

    The brilliant minds at KISD want to build this high school, and immediatly name it Klein High School. It will be called KHS while the original KHS is demolished and rebuilt on the same spot for the price of $100,000,000. This will last for roughly a two year period all the while the resident s who live across the street from the new high school (Gleannloch, Memorial Creek, etc) will still be forced to attend Klein Oak.

    The KISD Bond Program is getting a little out of control, I for one will not be voting for it if they keep with this plan. KISD need to grow and build new facilities, but demolishing a school to put a new one in its place tio the tune of One Hundred Million Dollars is not fiscally responsible. There are better ways to update and improve that campus.

    I agree that this Klein High School thing is crazy. I wonder would the district have done this if it were Klein Forest, Klein Oak or Klein Collins?

    I have Posted the new 2008 Klein ISD Bond Plan.

  9. The Klein ISD is currently in the process of developing the new 2008 Bond. The Bond Plan will include 15 new Schools (10 Elementarys, 3 Intermediates and 2 High Schools).

  10. Holy Friggin Cow. This is huge. This phone call and press conference was crazy.

    Yeah, It was crazy. I watched the entire conference live on ABC 13's 4 pm Newscast. They couldn't show the phonecall due to explicit language. After the phonecall they came back in the conference live and Roger answered questions until one reporter asked one that kinda pushed one of his buttuns. He then left out of the room after about 25 minutes of answering questions. I personally don not believe Roger Clemens took steroids. But then again, why would someone make this whole thing up.

  11. What a fun thread to reread 4 years later. I'd be interested to hear what the unabashed Bush supporters from 4 years ago think now. Any takers?

    The truth tellers in my opinion this go round are Paul, Kucinich, Gravel, and possibly Biden. I don't agree with what they all stand for, but at least I know what they stand for.

    My prediction for what to watch for; if Huckabee wins in New Hampshire be prepared for the big money to come out and CRUSH him ala McCain. Fundamentalists like to think they run the GOP but the fact of the matter is BIG INDUSTRY MONEY runs the RNC and they would rather any of the Democrats win over Huckabee. A few years ago, we had to watch as the Republicans ate McCain and questioned his cojones because he spoke out against torture. What will they trump up to stop the Huckster?

    As a proud Democrat, here's how I rank my favorites;

    Kucinich (has no chance but I like that he causes trouble)

    Obama

    Edwards

    Biden

    Richardson

    Clinton

    Yeah, It's all about Barack Obama. He will do a great job leading our nation.

  12. I have a hard time wondering why Chuch Rosenthal would even want to remain on the ballot after what he did. You would think he would be happy to take himself off, but it was the complete opposite. I don't think he would have gotten that many votes anyway if he remained on the ballot.

  13. Here's the location the article is talking about:

    Haif1.jpg

    If you can see the convience store near Sedgemoor Drive, that's about where they are wanting to build that condo also.

    Even that photo is outdated, so who knows how much development is there now!

    Klein ISD owns land next to the Elementary School.
