SCHOOL BOARD CONSIDERING SELLING NAMING RIGHTS TO CORPORATIONS

News Journal, FL - Football uniforms with a manufacturer's logo just like the Nike insignia Florida Gator star quarterback Tim Tebow wears.

A computer lab named for a bank that forks over big money to pay for upgraded equipment.

A high school theater named for a patron of the arts.

Any of those -- and more -- could be coming to Volusia County schools under an advertising and naming rights agreement the School Board will consider Tuesday.

It would give School Partnerships, a company founded last spring by longtime Volusia school supporter Nancy Holman, exclusive rights to sell naming rights for school facilities and advertising to appear on district property, uniforms, Web sites or printed materials. . .

The Volusia proposal is part of a growing trend around the nation as school districts struggle financially in the weak economy. Orange County schools, for example, hired a sales and marketing manager in July who will do much the same job as Holman would under the local contract.

Yesterday, the local high school, on their electronic marquee, had
posted the following"

"Thanks to our Corporate Partners."

It's everywhere. It's everywhere.

What are the next logical steps?

Renaming your city after a local benefactor?

Selling the rights to rename your State's name to some large corporation like Microsoft or google?

Having secret bidding to rename the Washington Monument?

Or maybe people won't become concerned until we have to sell the right to govern ourselves, and have to learn a foreign language like Chinese in order to get a job.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here. I have recently decided to find a good vendor of electronic cigarettes. I'm done with paying so much for normal cigarettes. Im deciding between either greensmoke or blucigs. Anyone using either of these?
