Those SAT scores are meaningless!

I'm following the economic development news at City Hall. My kids are excited that a new Costco, Marriott, circuit board assembly, downtown brew pub, and a casino are coming! My kids are living at ground-zero of big business and don't even realize it. My son is getting a soldering certificate at night school, and my daughter is getting a motel desk clerk internship this summer.
