Now the Navy has ticked off the schools supe

The U.S. Navy has tackled some formidable opponents in its long and glorious history, but it has now run afoul of the state's schoolmarm. Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson, who last year won a courtroom constitutional fight with the Perdue administration over who's in charge of the state's public schools, has vowed to, um, stand in the schoolhouse door over the Navy's consideration of plans to put a practice jet landing field near 10 schools in northeastern North Carolina. Khaner Walker with the PR agency French/West/Vaughan, sends along Atkinson's remarks following a meeting with representatives of Camden and Currituck counties Wednesday to discus the potential impact of an outlying landing field (OLF) on schools in that area:

“There are approximately 10 schools located less than three miles from the proposed site in Camden,” commented Atkinson. “The impact on these children and costs to soundproof the buildings will be severe. In addition, the loss of tax base will be crippling… An OLF would disrupt the learning of our children and harm northeastern North Carolina’s school systems. I will not remain silent and allow this to happen.”

The Navy wants to build a practice jet landing field for aircraft carrier pilot training, and need a place in a rural area that's dark enough to simulate nighttime landings on a carrier. It earlier targeted a site in Washington and Beaufort counties near the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, but environmental and citizens groups challenged that plan in federal court and forced the Navy to look at new sites in Virginia and North Carolina that are not too far from the Navy's master jet base near Virginia Beach.

Love them or hate them, military operations bring jobs. North Carolina receives how many billions of direct dollars? And those direct dollars multiply into many additional billions?

The base is in Virginia Beach, so build the landing field in Virgina.
Otherwise, you are condemning North Carolina land without bringing the jobs.

They want to practice NIGHT TIME landings. When did students in that area start attending classes at night? There should be no interference with the school day and no need for soundproofing. June you were smart when I first met you what happened?

Students don't need to sleep at night when these jets will be
landing.

They should be partying.

They'll all be guaranteed gubmint
jobs anyway so they can pay
their gubmint loans.

Especially in the military where
the gubmint cheeze is especially
tasty.

Mo' cheez, pleez.
