Don, I doubt it if Mrs. Rohner reads this blog.
I posted her comments in response to questions.
Now, now, Mrs. Randall. If you don't care about the sewer, why do you keep bringing it up?
I am not aware of any sewer problems associated with that property. However, I don't think the town would be responsible as they don't have anything to do with the sewer. You would need to contact the Northern Gila County Sanitary District to get answers on that issue and I will leave that bit of research up to you.
According to LaRon Garrett, Town of Payson, they do own the right of way.
It encompasses the entire corner from the side walk up to the bushes against the building.
When the Boy Scouts did the original landscaping they stayed within the boundary of the right of way and thus, so did the PHS students.
To accomplish its mission, FFA:
· Develops competent and assertive agricultural leadership.
· Increases awareness of the global and technological importance of agriculture and its contribution to our well-being.
· Strengthens the confidence of agriculture students in themselves and their work.
· Promotes the intelligent choice and establishment of an agricultural career.
· Encourages achievement in supervised agricultural experience programs.
· Encourages wise management of economic, environmental and human resources of the community.
· Develops interpersonal skills in teamwork, communications, human relations and social interaction.
· Builds character and promotes citizenship, volunteerism and patriotism.
· Promotes cooperation and cooperative attitudes among all people.
· Promotes healthy lifestyles.
· Encourages excellence in scholarship
I think the bullet points above clearly represent how FFA (Club or better called a Career and Technical Student Organization) was represented on Monday.
Thank you! I really appreciate your interest in the subject!
Mrs. Jadee Rohner
Payson High School
Performing this activity while students were in Ag (not excused from other classes) they met the following standards and expectations:
· Identify tools, equipment and supplies used in the nursery and landscape industries.
· Identify characteristics of a quality plant.
· Recommend installation and maintenance measures for exterior landscapes.
· Determine need for fertilizers, growth regulators and pesticides.
How could this better have been taught than outside, while completing a service project?
Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE)
Landscape Management – Entrepreneurship/Placement – In which a student owns the enterprise, or works for
a business that includes experiences of planting and maintaining plants and shrubs, landscaping and
outdoor beautification, grounds keeping, sprinkler installations and improvement of recreational areas.
Every student is expected to have an SAE, and maintain records on their SAE throughout the year using an online record book- where they keep track of the time invested and the money invested or earned. I have multiple students that have an SAE in the proficiency area of “Landscape Management”, a personal goal as a teacher is to diversify student work based experiences and show them future career opportunities first hand.
FFA (National Leadership Organization)
National FFA Mission: FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
From Mrs. Jadee Rohner, Agriculture Teacher.
You know my kids never cease to amaze me with their ideas and requests! My Animal Science 2 (2nd Hr), and Advanced Animal Science (3rd Hr) classed asked to do a service project in support & celebration of Earth Day, and so I in turned asked Roger Kreimeyer with whom we work with at the Payson Community Garden. I am proud of the classes efforts working at the community garden, and the kids enjoy giving back to the community as an extension of the classroom- they have accomplished a lot there!
Mr. Kreimeyer suggested that instead of working at the Community Garden, that the corner of 87 and 260 could use attention and that the community would appreciate it. I am a firm believer that a classroom does not always consist of a white board and 4 walls, but there are opportunities to learn through a variety of experiences for example land surveying at Bar T Bar Ranch, and teaching agriculture to youth at H4 Ranch etc.
The Total Program of Agricultural Education has a philosophy that is co-curricular meaning that FFA is not extra-curricular like Volleyball or National Honors Society, but it consists of Classroom Instruction, FFA (Leadership), and Supervised Agricultural Education (SAE)-which is their work based experience. So to answer your question below, “is this a class or club project or part of the curriculum?”, the response would be yes to all of the above. I will explain below:
Don, I really agree with most of your comments. However, the lien thing won't work. Who are you going to put a lien on, ADOT or the town? The restaurant owner does not own or control the blighted property. With that being said, if I owned the restaurant I would keep it up, if for no other reason, to enhance the prospects of selling the property.
OK, then why do you keep saying they should put a lien on it and collect when the property is sold?
Don, virtually the entire corner up to a couple of feet of the restaurant itself is ADOT right of way. It does not belong to the restaurant.
The restaurant is not on a septic system it is on the mainline sewer system just like every business on the 4 corners and beyond.
The owner could have sold it on numerous occasions but prefers to wait until he can get his price.
