While the school board didn't finish evaluating superintendent Terry Grier's job performance last night, it did pass one motion after emerging from closed session.

It seems as though the school system has its eye on a 30-acre tract of farmland in near Pisgah Church Raod and N.C 150 for the new "Northern" elementary school. However, the owner doesn't want to sell, so the board passed a motion threatening th land owner "with its statutory right of emminent domain to acquire the site for the new elementary school."

At first, I thought this might be the same tract of land for which the county commissioners approved $660,000 of money the schools realized from favorable bids. But that tract is 22 acres and fronts Pleasant Ridge Road. It's slated for the "Northwest" area elementary school.

I didn't know a school had a statutory right of emminent domain. But then again, I'm naive.
