President Bush is in town, arriving at McConnell Air Force Base at 11:28 a.m. It was good of him to make his first stop the Boeing Co. modification facility, where he thanked workers for doing such a good job on Air Force One.
Our editorial today argues that the Boys & Girls Club complex on East 21st Street, the main reason for the president’s visit, is deserving of the national attention. When the $8 million club fully opens July 9, it will join the Opportunity Project nearby — the sunny $3 million early childhood learning center funded by Barry and Paula Downing and open a year now. Next will come a new $10.4 million public elementary and middle school and adjacent clinic to open in August 2008, the first such school building project in the neighborhood since 1971.
