Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, opened in 1987, exists in the shadow of Islands of Adventure. The park and high school students put up with the roar of the T-rex in Jurassic Park and enjoy a good relationship that offers jobs and scholarships.

Friend of mine rented a house less than a block away from Dr. Phillips....I loved that house, good view of my beloved Fire Dragon and the occasional fireworks show. What a terrible place to have to go to school, huh? ;)

I had a friend who went to Kings High School behind PKI. Son of Beast towers over the football practice fields. I would never have gotten any work done.

From the top of my school's parking structure, I can see DCA pretty nicely, as well as the Matterhorn at DL.

Regarding Alton Towers, lots and lots of neighbours and locals came to the parks' support in a local meeting following the lawsuit by the Roper family. While we often hear about complaints made by locals, it seems now and again members of the public don't underestimate the virtues of such a good local employer.

Eh...the reason you hardly ever hear of good relationships is because most of the time the mainstream media decides that good things don't belong in the media.
Its simply an extension of 'If it bleeds, it leads."

Are you sure (in journalism terms) that it's not spelled "ledes"? Then wouldn't it also be "bledes"? ;)

No, a "lede" in journalism is the first sentence of a story, usually a creative lead-in to the story. In that phrase, "leads" just means "starts the newscast."

Wow, I wouldn't mind going to school next to IOA. Go to school...go to IoA!
