21:18-- DebbieKay: pizza places, spas...
21:18-- DebbieKay: tanning salons...
21:20-- DebbieKay: If people just looked at our businesses they would guess that the people of Forney looked like oompa loompas...large, spray tanned, but with nice hair and nails heh heh heh
21:24-- yesitsme: (I forgot pizza and tanning for sure. Spas - not so much) I know! .. large, tanned, with nice hair and nails and clothes.
21:24-- yesitsme: ... that vape.
22:27-- Calvinator24: Does anyone know when and why Eastfield stopped offering in-county tuition to Forney residents?
0:35-- DebbieKay: ^^^I've been here 10 years and Eastfield never offered Forney residents in-county tuition because we are in Kaufman County not Dallas County. And as far as TVCC goes the Forney voters have voted down paying extra in taxes so that we would be in TVCC's district time and time again.
4:12-- Calvinator24: I am personally familiar with Forney families who have received in-county tuition at Eastfield in the past. The Eastfield website still lists Forney (and Crandall for that matter) as being "in-District" for tuition. They do not, however, honor that. I know it was still in effect for the 2012-13 year, but I am not sure about this past year.
12:53-- DebbieKay: Doesn't say anything about Forney and Crandall being in-district
14:25-- jaxielovesJesus: Mornin fokks
14:25-- jaxielovesJesus: folks
23:55-- dstuart101: My daughter and I both attended Eastfield - no "in county" tuition was ever offered to us.
13:28-- CSandone: Good morning. I am new to the forum, but I noticed this thread and I wanted to comment. My name is Cody Sandone and I am one of the owners of the Vapor Spot.
16:57-- yesitsme: Welcome Cody!! (I replied to your thread post).
16:58-- yesitsme: --- InForney Vapers, you got a deal coming! ---
16:58-- yesitsme: [Uh, there is probably three. Meh]
16:59-- yesitsme: My remaining question... IS there a Vape Store (specializing) on 548 or not?
17:00-- yesitsme: ... 548 in Forney
17:03-- yesitsme: I forgot to say to you Cody ---- CONGRATS on your business, and I wish you SUCCESS!
17:06-- yesitsme: [I really figured Vapor Spot for a chain .. or at least franchise. Is it?]
0:09-- yesitsme: Made me -literally- laugh out loud a few times. (He wants to hit me on the head with a crowbar now) Actually I have to watch it about 24 more times to get all of it. SOME of it is -right at me! ... Like using quotations for (and other stuff I use) for emphasis.
0:11-- yesitsme: AND, it's funny on a couple of levels too. Like the music video parody visuals.
0:17-- yesitsme: "it's really fantastic!" - you write like a spastic. What's wrong with "really fantastic"?
0:18-- yesitsme: and ha! on "get out of the gene pool - try not to drool"
17:53-- yesitsme: If any business or person wants to sponsor for FHS March-A-Thon this year, Deadline is August 4th to do that. email@example.com is the contact.
17:54-- yesitsme: The March-A-Thon is August 16th. I don't know the route for it this year yet. It ENDS at the Spellman Amphitheater w the free (brief) concert by the band.
17:56-- yesitsme: ... at Noon
23:16-- Calvinator24: The availability for Forney students at Eastfield was as part of the Dual-credit program.
23:16-- Calvinator24: This option is no longer available.
1:23-- DebbieKay: Forney ISD is one of the "participating" schools in the Dual Credit program at Eastfield according to your link.
17:38-- Gonzo: Seems to me then that Dual Credit and In District are not the same thing
1:29-- DebbieKay: "tuition is waived for eligible students" is usually code for "attends a Title I school" or is eligible for free/reduced lunches. Maybe the people he knew received "in district" tuition rates because of this. I know some tests (PSAT, AP, etc., have some sort of reduced fees based on eligibility for free/reduced lunches).
