Classic Bad Photography Saturday

We've been down this road before.

There have been countless attempts to turn the old North Scranton Junior High School on North Main Avenue into a technology/business center and apartments for the elderly.

They all failed.  While the projects are worthy, and this building should be saved, it will take tons of money to get the job done.

This time, it's the apartment complex that's up for consideration, and the organization heading the effort, Goodwill, says it hopes state money will finally arrive this spring.

Pardon my pessimism, but I'll believe it when I see it.  There have been too many "we're close" proclamations over the years to get excited over the latest.

I really hope it happens this time around.  Turning NSJH into apartments for the elderly helps the neighborhood, helps the city, and helps the people who live there.

Today's photo was taken back in the summer of 2007.  Nothing's changed.
