‘There are still people who are infatuated’: School district ‘exploring’ possibility of demolishing Columbine

first_imgThomas Cooper/Getty Images(DENVER) — Colorado school officials say they are “exploring the concept” of demolishing Columbine High School, the site of one of the nation’s most notorious school shootings, and building anew.Two students opened fire at the high school in Littleton, Colorado, on April 20, 1999, gunning down 12 of their fellow students and one teacher before killing themselves. The massacre preceded a wave of school shootings to come, including those at Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook Elementary School and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.“The tragedy at Columbine High School in 1999 serves as a point of origin for this contagion of school shootings,” Jason Glass, superintendent of the encompassing school district, Jeffco Public Schools, said in an open letter to the community on Thursday. “School shooters refer to and study the Columbine shooting as a macabre source of inspiration and motivation.”In the letter, Glass posits, “In 1999, no guidance existed on what to do with a building such as Columbine High School. Today school safety experts recommend tearing down buildings where school shootings take place. Since the morbid fascination with Columbine has been increasing over the years, rather than dissipating, we believe it is time for our community to consider this option for the existing Columbine building.”“No one anticipated that we would still be talking about Columbine,” Frank DeAngelis, who was Columbine’s principal during the massacre, told ABC News on Friday. “What we’re seeing 20 years later is the names of the two killers still being out there — people being mesmerized by the two killers… there are still people who are infatuated with the building.” DeAngelis said he’d see tour buses drive by the school over summer breaks.The superintendent referenced Sol Pais, an 18-year-old woman from Florida who was allegedly obsessed with the Columbine shooting. This April, Pais traveled to Colorado with a shotgun and ammunition, and threatened schools in the Denver area, prompting lockdowns. Pais then killed herself.DeAngeli called the April lockdowns a tipping point, after which officials met to see if a new building was a possibility.“Columbine High School has a gravitational-pull for these sorts of individuals,” Glass said, noting that local law enforcement and the Jeffco Public Schools Department of School Safety make contacts with “hundreds of individuals” every year seeking to enter Columbine.“Most of them are there to satisfy curiosity or a macabre, but harmless, interest in the school,” he added. “For a small group of others, there is a potential intent to do harm.”Columbine High School is now among the safest schools in the country, boasting a “sophisticated system” of surveillance and security protection, according to Glass. But the building’s blood-stained history remains.“The school site continues to serve as a source of inspiration for potential school shooters, and its lasting impact only seems to be growing,” Glass said. “Perhaps influenced by the 20th anniversary of the shooting, over the past 11 months the number of people trying to enter the school illegally or otherwise trespassing on school property has been increasing – now to record levels.”A $15 million renovation and expansion of the current school was approved by voters last year. But the Jeffco Public Schools Board of Education and administration are exploring the possibility of asking voters for an addition $60 to $70 million to build a new building, according to the superintendent. Some of the ideas Glass said they are considering include demolishing the existing building and replacing it with fields and controlled entry points, and constructing the new school just west of the current location with enhanced safety features.“We are in the very preliminary and exploratory stages of these conversations,” he said, “and we are seeking community feedback and thoughts on this proposal.”DeAngelis, the former principal, said he’s in support of a new building if it’ll alleviate some fear.He stressed that it’s important to get input from the Columbine survivors who remain staff members at the high school.“We are Columbine. Who we are is not because of the bricks and mortar — it’s because of the people,” DeAngelis said. “I want these kids, the future students, not only next year but for generations to come, to be in a school where they don’t have to worry about people showing up unexpectedly.”“I think what people need to do is sit back and look at all the rationale,” DeAngelis said. “Talk to some people who are being effected by it, which are the teachers, students. And I think that’s what Dr. Glass is trying to do.”Sandy Hook Elementary School in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, was torn down after Adam Lanza killed 20 students and six teachers in December 2012. There has also been discussion of tearing down Building 12, where the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, took place in February 2018.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

All eyes on rare Gold Coast mansion listed for $45 million

first_img Interior designer’s house snapped up in speedy sale The unique property offers a good dose of eye candy.The notorious mansion is no stranger to public attention, having made headlines in 2013 when it sold in an unfinished state to Mr Rizzi for $5.3 million at a mortgagee auction.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa8 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day agoThe previous owners, accountant Clare Marks and her lawyer husband Scott Tyne, outlaid $21.44 million on the initial construction and four blocks of land. MORE NEWS: Beachfront cottages fetches a pretty price in Palm Beach The unique residence is owned by Riccardo Rizzi. Picture Mike BatterhamOwned by Perth civil engineer Riccardo Rizzi, the house is designed by the renowned Brunei Royal Family architect Bayden Goddard whose intention was to build a modern day 100-year-old Chateau, with the feel of a Mediterranean European Estate.It took more than six years to complete the grand residence which includes six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and parking for nine cars, with the East and West wings connected by a spectacular Grand Hall and an impressive Foyer. Wide water views are part of the appeal of the grand Gold Coast estate. The level of detail is nothing short of grand.The palatial mansion has received 24,525 views since it was listed on realestate.com.au and was one of the most-viewed properties in Queensland last week.Principal Amir Mian of Amir Prestige Property Agents said the unique property had also been extremely popular on YouTube, with views up by 60 per cent in recent weeks. “That tells us that people are using this time to browse properties to upsize, downsize or to relocate,” he said.“People who’ve got the spare time are thinking about their next move.” 26-32 Knightsbridge Parade East, Sovereign Islands is in a league of its own.The world may be in the grips of a global pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped thousands of peeping property toms eyeing off a mega mansion listed for $45 million on the Gold Coast.The sprawling estate at 26-32 Knightsbridge Parade East occupies the best five north-facing blocks on exclusive Sovereign Islands with 106 meters of water frontage.If sold, the property would be the Gold Coast’s most expensive, trumping the $27 million mansion sold by Sydney Swan Tony Smith for $27 million in 2008. Every room is finished to the highest standard.And the new owner could be right here in Queensland, according to Mr Mian who said the estate presents a unique opportunity.“It’s impossible to buy five blocks side-by-side on Sovereign Islands let alone on open water with endless views,” he said.“Queensland alone has plenty of millionaires and billionaires, so you don’t have to go too far to find a buyer with the means.“There is a buyer out there and I do see this as a special opportunity for someone. The seller is open to deals.”last_img read more
