Description

"In a deal largely bankrolled by taxpayers and aided by an unusually generous property appraisal, county officials have agreed to buy a private school and allow it to move from an airport flight path to a county-owned site for a public park," The Palm Beach Post reports. The story is about the purchase of King's Academy campus by Palm Beach International Airport for $14.5 million. It was not a coincidence that the airport's director children attended the school. Federal Aviation Administration officials admitted they had not checked the overpriced deal.
