"We Have The Airport Here, So Let's Us It"
If town leaders in Oxford, CT, have their way, there could soon
be some new activity at the local airport. They want to see a
magnet school operate at the Waterbury-Oxford Airport, one that
would attract math and science students who are preparing for a
career in aviation.
"This is the logical choice," First Selectman August Palmer III
said, as quoted in New York Newsday. "We have the airport here, so
let's use it."
Last week, a grant writer for the town of Oxford sat down with
architects to not only come up with a design for the school, but a
way to pay for it as well. Overall, it's to be a six-year process
from site selection to squaring away the finances to the facility's
Palmer wants the school up and running by 2012 and wants the
town to start applying for grants next year.
"I've mentioned it to the Oxford Airport people," Palmer told
Newsday. "I don't know if they take me seriously."
Which reminds us...
Would the staff and management of the Waterbury-Oxford Airport
please claim your teeth? We believe you may have dropped them upon
hearing Palmer's plan.
