So when it came time last November for the expanding, unincorporated desert community of Troon to choose between joining a nearby school district, and paying higher property taxes to help finance it, or starting its own, Mr. Flynn led the movement that created the Christopher Verde School District.
Not that the Christopher Verde district will have any schools, teachers or, apparently, students.
The children of Troon will continue to attend nearby schools. And thanks to a loophole in Arizona law, the grown-ups of Troon will continue to avoid paying property taxes in those districts, which makes officials in the districts less than mirthful.
Oddly enough, none of my current labels accurately describes this, so until I change that, this will get filed under miscellaneous.
