Riddle me this, subbs, will the stadium generate $69 million in profit over its lifetime? I bet it will.

Plus, the stadium looks like it's going to serve 8 different high schools. I would figure a double header on a Friday night brings in 200K+ in profit.

It's Texas.  High School Football is everything down there.  My daughter is getting her Ph.D at Texas Tech right now.  There is a high school south of Lubbock with a stadium with more capacity than the state college she got her undergraduate degree has.

Knew it was Texas halfway through reading the headline. Saw "beaumont enterprise" as the source and felt some confirmation, but was unsure - clearly this wouldn't really be in Beaumont i thought. Glanced at TFA and saw "Katy" and it all made perfect sense.

Katy HS is indeed a local powerhouse, but (and unlike the Dallas stadium referenced in TFA) this bond offering is proposed for use by multiple schools, and to build an agriculture arena, etc...

/not in my district so I don't really care if the bond is voted up or not. Would not at all be surprised if it passes though.

Well considering it serves eight high schools, it will probably have double headers and/or a games every week and probably soccer games in the winter.  Too bad it will probably have an artificial surface.

What interest rate are they offering?

Close to $70 million FARKING HIGH SCHOOL STADIUM with luxury suites, valet parking, and a whole lot of amenities.

Football, then god, it's the Texas way!

Oh, and good luck trying to get a $60,000 bond passed to enhance science, or the arts.

I'm OK with this because it's Texas. Keep them happy down there, so we don't have to deal with them them up here.

Bond = debt

But let's go complain about Obamacare or something.

.......No high school needs 69 million dollar stadium.

More football = more head injuries and heart problems = higher mortality rate = more Texans not polluting the gene pool.
