Progress finally being made at the Mountain View Officers Club..?

Thank you to @Kurt Obermeier for bringing up this community question for our journalists to look into!

More than two decades into the effort to restore and rehabilitate the historically-significant building for reuse, real progress may finally be on the horizon.

Under garrison commander Colonel Jarrod Moreland, who assumed office in June, the Mountain View Officers Club that had once been placed on an excess list and faced demolition may receive a brand-new lease as a mission-critical property: the fort is “in the very initial stages of looking for an army use for the building.”

How is virtual learning going for you and/or your child?

I am working on a story about virtual learning and how it's going for districts. I am looking for guardian and student voices about how virtual learning is going. 

What are the challenges? What are the positives?

Had black mold and Struse does it all. Other contractors will do mold only or plumbing only which of course would put you in a catch-22 since need to fix the plumbing and mold at the same time.

Can't do plumbing after mold fix and can't fix mold after plumbing fix. Nobody else does it all.

Struse does it all and they did it during the COVID pandemic. 20 gold stars to Struse.
