Actually, I lied. Tomorrow night, Thursday May 18th,  is the fun as Pecha Kucha Dayton hosts volume 31 at the Dakota Center- 33 Barnett St. at 7:30 PM. It’s a “Hack your city” edition with at least 8 or 9 interesting PK presentations, from bright, talented people. For those of you who are still living in the dark ages- PK is 20 slides, 2o seconds each- on any subject. Add in that’s it’s free, and has beer, it’s a lot of fun and brings an interesting group out.

Tonight, at 5:30, Dayton Public Schools Rookie Superintendent Rhonda Corr will be having a town hall at Belmont High School, 2615 Wayne Ave, Dayton, OH 45420. It’s free- needs beer, and will feature one hapless superintendent trying to explain the fine mess she’s gotten the district in since her arrival last July.

Feel free to ask her about how we were broke, needing a RIF in Oct- but flush enough in February to buy out David Lawrence, or buy 115 buses. Ask her why she gave District Athletic Director Mark Baker a 2 year contract, when the dust still hadn’t settled on the Dunbar/Belmont thrown game fiasco- but, can’t and won’t give any coach anything but a last minute 1 year supplemental contract?

Or, why the district and the DEA can’t seem to make any progress on contract negotiations this year?

Or, about the real estate deals?

Or how she has an ineligible Board Member?

Or the new busing plan- which pretty much will seal the fate of the remaining specialty schools- Boys Prep, Charity Early, Rivers Edge? And how the new zones won’t guarantee a return to segregation?

Freakshow Deluxe show Friday Night

And Friday night- if you want to be entertained yet again- check out the Freakshow Deluxe at Therapy Cafe- the “Family show” featuring the DPS student who throws knives at his sister with his parents approval.

We like to keep things fresh in Dayton.
