Swansea spirit is difficult to sink

The Wolf Branch School District took a few “hits” in the Sound-Off column in relation to recent damage at the middle school from mine subsidence. While the event is certainly unfortunate, and repairs could be costly, public buildings are no more immune from these kinds of events than commercial businesses or private residences. My understanding is that 15 years ago the district considered multiple options and chose to construct sections of the building so they move independently, probably the only real cost effective approach available to them.
