The district can't afford to maintain the building honor ro l ls as by law structures that do not house students aren't eligible for repairs or maintenance using district capital funding. Roosevelt dates back to 1910 when it was constructed as an elementary school. Harding Elementary on Main Street, now the district bus barn, was built in 1922. John F. Kennedy Elementary was constructed on what is now the current campus for the entire district on Mary Drive that encompasses the junior-senior high, football field and more. The district's administrative offices were moved from Roosevelt to Kennedy in 2008. Roosevelt has seen life as an elementary, a junior high, administra- tive offices, and for years its band room housed not only a district music program but was the regular meeting venue for Superior Unified School District Governing Board meetings. Portions of the building have been renovated and leased out as well. Outdoor areas have been a town/ school joint park under terms of a longstanding grant. The location of this "heritage" park will be moved when the district divests itself of the property. Recent rounds of negotiations about the possibility of the school leasing the property long-term to the town for a nominal fee shifted gears recently. Legal advisors held that a school district could not lease or sell property at less than market value. The thought then became that the dis- trict could sell the site to the town at the previously assessed market value" and provide a long-term payoff plan. This would transfer Roosevelt to the town for community use and provide for low annual payments.

That is because TTL, also known as the Sun &' CBN's own Cindy 1'racy, REALLY loves pizza and extremely craves it every 20 seconds. Well, who does not love pizza? What's not to like? Certainly in the Copper Basin region from Superior to Kearny, Winkelman, Hayden and beyond there are many worthy eateries where heavenly pizza can be obtained in great quantities and a multitude of variety. Among these is the delicious Old Time Pizza and Deli at 370 Alden Road in Kearny, conveniently located next to the newspaper office where TTL sometimes works. In fact, for years, TTL worked there every Tuesday when she helped in putting together the Copper Basin News and Superior Sun. Old Time Pizza played a big part in those Tues- days, which would have been less fun if not accompanied by a large slice of outrageously good cheese pizza and a huge diet coke TTL recently rev~ited lunch at this pizzeria and deli that is a fixture in the area. (Okay, she's visited it more than a few times in between, like pretty much every time she works in Kearny.) Lunch on this visit was a sampler of a few old and new.favorites. Armed with a diet coke on the side, TTL sampled her way through two generous slices of rich and satisfying (just like old times) pepperoni pizza, a quarter of a Ph'illy sub and an eye-opening slice of the restaurant's innovative new peanut butter and jelly pizza, Pizza at Old Time, with any top- ping, is so good that it is actually hard to describe. The restaurant seems to have a unique recipe for the crust that people come from miles around~ like TTL did, to resample after they've had it once. The sub would have reminded TTL of its namesake city, if she had ever been in Philadelphia. Since she hadn't been, its beef, cheese and exactly the right amount of crunchy green pepper and seasonings, was perfect. The sandwich is also available made with chicken so whatever floats your boat on that issue is fine with the friendly Old Time staff. Thepeanut butter and jelly pizza is a recent addition to the menu. TTL had been told about it and that it was a favorite with children and young people. TTL is not a youth, but See TIPS on P. 3 r j v
