I will be dissapointed in MLS if they dont offer the early century things to the Monroe Historical Society first. We need to keep what relics we have about Monroe in Monroe. JMO

Do we not have a woodshop in the new high school? Why would they get rid of all the wood they have & not take it to the new school?

Maybe I wasn't reading it right, but I think you can bid on-line. John, you can find someone on here to show you around "Al Gore's internet thingy" and bid that way.

I won't say "I told you so, but........"

Confuse a liberal, use facts & reason.

Hmmm....This really doesn't make sense. The price of hardwood today, why would they not use it at the new school????
I can see getting rid of the old shop equipment.

Guess I'll see ya there Eagle......

Yes, to offering the Historical Society folks a chance to pick items before the auction.

I can't contain myself. Wow, what a waste of taxpayer money for all that woodshop material (wood and hardware). Sure would be nice if the curriculum could put an emphasis on teaching carpentry, etc instead of all tech jobs. Do we not teach shop anymore? I hope folks come out and bid as I'm assuming the money funnels back into the school budget, less auctioneer fees.

None of it works. I was down there with Arnie a few years ago making some signs and all the machines were froze up. Many shorted out from the moisture down there. When you see the wood you will understand why they are selling it.

They are auctioning off the wood and machines because since moving to the new building in 2004, Monroe has not offered a shop class. The new school does not even have a shop. I regret that, but there simply are not enough hours in a day now to meet the educational requirements of the state scorecard and no child left behind. Fewer and fewer schools offer the old traditional shop classes now. For high school programs, there is a full offering at Butler Tech.

That is really sad that shop is not part of our education program. I probably learned more about life from shop and especially the shop teacher than any other subject. It wasn't so much the things learned as it was the worldly transfer of knowledge from the teacher about life from a male perspective!

Besides, it was fun, as well as educational. Drafting, electronics/electricity, leather working, wood working, mechanical applications. Most of the basics I still call on today from time to time.

I think it's sad, too. Some children never go to college or a trade school, this is all they get. I'm sure countless adults use the wood shop skills they learned in high school every day in their jobs. At least one grading period in high school for everybodywould be nice, just to get the basics.

If the new HS doesn't have a shop - what is that room by the HS cafeteria that I hear saws buzzing in?

There is a work room behind the stage where they build the sets. That may be what you are hearing.

So did any of you get anything at today's school auction? I understand that a big crowd was there.

The room by the cafeteria is the Butler Tech lab. They offer 'wood shop' or industrial tech to Monroe students.

There was a very good crowd. Some folks left having made excellent deals on equipment. Definitely some water/condensation damage on things, but everything I examined still had good movement where you'd expect it. For some things, even if a motor needed replacement, the price was right.

I didn't stay for the wood (still quite a decent and apparently ravenous crowd for that), but there were nice stacks of maple and walnut stock.

Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another. -John Muir, Naturalist and explorer (1838-1914)

Where did "Shop" go you ask? Well, programs like that cost money. When it is short, classes like this go away. As money gets tighter, more electives like shop will vanish also.

parlez vous francais? Not at MHS... gone. As funding gets tighter watch others slide away.

The sound by the cafeteria is "Tech. Engineering" Great class with a great teacher for students looking for career options
