Cheese Making on your Stove? Get real. How long is it before we stop this waste of taxpayer money? Get Real !!!

They try to have something for everyone.....some of us aren't smart enough for an advanced rocket scientist class. And if the participants are paying for the class, why are you griping about your tax money. The grant moneys they have gotten in the past would have gone to Philadelphia if they didn't send them here. Go back under your rock.

What is your problem? People pay for these classes out of thier own pockets. I took classes through here and was able to get a better paying job and I paid for my own classes. Are you that jealous of people's desire to pay to learn new things?

I am certain that the cost of these classes and the "grant" money is not enough to pay the seven person staff that they have....the get the rest of the money from taxpayers so they can teach people how to make cheese and hold craft sessions.

I don't believe it. People pay to learn new skills and to learn new hobbies, and you try to twist it around into some plot for stealing your money. Obviously, you neve went there to see what it is they actually offer, like holding GED Classes, College courses, Computer classes. They also have tons of info on colleges, grants, financial aid for those who are wanting to go to school. Businesses send thier employees there to study food safety, newer computer technology, nursing skills, and schools send thier teachers there to study for Gannon, classroom behavior,and they also hold classes for people who want to learn sign language, or to learn how to do thier own taxes, run thier own businesses, write thier own resumes. they are also open to the open to the public that need to use a computer, for online college courses, or work. As for the hobbie classes, people of all ages love to go in and learn new enjoyable hobbies with thier friends and family. People and businesses pay for these things to be available with thier own money, and enjoy the learning experience without having to travel hours away from home. They also hold public meetings to try and help the community and work on plans to assist those citizens who don't want to move away and are desperate in finding work I guess you probably have issues with the senior centers, meal on wheels, Careerlink, or any other organization that is out there for the community. I took classes there along with dozens of other people who lost thier jobs at Adelphia/Time Warner, and I can speak for the majority of us, that instead of packing up and leaving, or relying on the welfare system to support us, we actually moved on with well paying jobs around the area, using the education we recieved from these classes, and paid for. Of course, I realize that there are people out there that are miserable in thier own skin and can't stand to see others work hard to succeed in life, or enjoy themselves by learning new hobbies and seeing those that are retired and look for fun things to do with people they enjoy doing these things with. As for the rock you climb out from underneath, just to show how nice I am, I will hold it up for you to climb back under.

I would rather pay taxes on something that helps people get back on their feet and make a living, than pay taxes on those that claim they can't work, or just won't work. If your big pockets keep you from fitting under a rock, I am sure you would feel right at home under a bridge where you belong

I have been there and saseen what they provide. The issue is that most communities have the same program or something similar, only it is run by volunteers in a donated location, not a seven person staff with multiple rented locations....with one that's not even in the county it is supposed to be provicing servics for. The big question is, who is regulating the money they are receiving and where does it fit into the county budget?

What are some of these programs ran by volunteers, that offer the same things?

It would be interesting to know how many people enrolled in the cheese class or the tulip purse class? Come on. If you think the "fee" for these classes cover the costs of the building and employees, may I suggest you take a class sponsored by the Ed Council called "Economics for dummies."
