Money OK'd for Newton North -- with no squabbles

We've seen the broad brush strokes, now the architects will fill in the details of the new Newton North High School.

Aldermen voted unanimously last night in favor of $2.6 million for architects to complete design drawings. A month ago, the project was sparking predictions of dire consequences for the city and the dispute was fracturing long-time friendships.

A resounding “yes” vote in a citywide election in favor of the school has silenced critics among the aldermen -- for now. The design money was approved without debate.
