At it again would be a suitable phrase for the stupidity or chicanery of the Cowley College Board.

First they build a campus in Wellington which will 'not cost Cowley taxpayers anything,’ then raid the college reserves for over $2 million to cover furnishing the Wellington building.

Now they plan to construct a $2 million dormitory in Wellington to house less than 20 students, over $100,000 per student.

Is this another case of financial stupidity, or just a board free with your taxes?

The college is spending tax payers money like it grows on trees. They are focusing Cowley money on Sumner County. We shouldn't be surprised about this. A dorm in Sumner County is absolutely stupid.
