New school on track

Kristin Sanchez
Education Advisor

The new junior/senior high school is right on the projected track for it's completion. It was public knowledge that the building, though a newer construction in Riverdale, was starting to fall apart. Walls were starting to suffer from mold, the student body has out grown the cafeteria, and worst yet, the basement portion of the building had flooded.
So the Hood Council deiced it would be best to bulldoze the whole thing and build anew. The site for the new building is on the same land as the old one, but rezoned. We took an Eco stand on the demolishment of the old high school, and we recycled many items. Money that was saved by recycling has been put towards the construction of the new school.
If things keep going as smoothly as it has been so far, the school should be ready by the start of the new school year. The new Riverdale Junior and Senior High School will support our current enrolled population of students, and shall continue to support the future influx of students that have been projected.
Here is the model floor plan for the school:

For the most part, the Council has agreed to the design with a few modifications here and there. We hope that this new school will continue to support our growing population throughout the years to come.

What I'm Looking For

May, Spring 2013, Tina Traveller and Grayson Haggerty are both 24.


Tina was happy with being single. After college and all the drama with Richard and then with Bart. So starting life as a single and happy woman was something exciting for her. But after a while the loneliness started to get to Tina.


April, Spring 2013, Robert  and Cynthia Kim are both 59, Viggo is 14.5. Late updated. (Cameron Smith is 15.5)

It's a typical spring weekend, two friends spending the day together tossing a football around the front lawn. Viggo and Edward played football a lot, well, when they aren't playing soccer or basket ball. They also discussed their girlfriends, and how Edward still can get Brooke into bed yet.

Spring Break 2012-2013

March, Spring 2013, Richard Smith is 20, Mary Snowden, Marchon Cunningham, Ye T'ang, Nora Reed, and Harvis MacAstril are 19. Last updated.


Spring break finally has come to UOR and the young adults head off to a place more sunny and much warmer than Riverdale.

Tax Collection 2012

So instead of sitting on this any longer I decided to update with my tax collection. This is the first time that I am doing this, and I may change my methods of collection etc. But this is what I've decided for now. Taxes will be collected every two years in Riverdale. Most likely I will divide what the City collects for Education, Medical, and City funds.

I'm not going to list all my house holds, how much is their net worth and how much they had to pay, because it will be just to long. LOL So I'm going to list my richest and poorest sims, their net worth and what they pair or recived in taxes.

Ugh, I'm horrible since I don't have my faorite places, but I'm using the tax sheet that Simmington Hills gave me. And I think it was created by Lural Crossing. I'll check once I get everything up and running again. So I only taxed the sims of Riverdale on 10% of their net worth and any personal money in their bank account. Residents also got the marital desuction of $1500, as well as $1000 per dependant. Dependants include any child attending college until completion of their four year education.

It feels good to actually post something in regards to Riverdale instead of bad news. Hopefully everything will be fixed and I'll be able to do a proper update soon!

Richest sims living in Riverdale:

Xander and Tosha Snapple: $244,507  Paid: -$33,176

Peter and Samantha Ottamas: $215,076  Paid: -$38,741

Antwan and Taffi Snowden: $186,091  Paid: -$15,109

Danny and Kristin Sanchez: $146,066  Paid: -$11,107

Thomas and Tyra Brooks: $105,695  Paid: -$7,070

Poorist sims living in Riverdale:

Justin Reed: $1,475 Paid: -$148

Nashira Sanchez: $6,955  Recived: $305

Ariel Burrego and Pret Patrelli: $4,446 Recived: $2,055

Tina Traveller and Grayson Haggerty: $6,392  Recived: $861

Brandon and Heather Reed: $8,833  Recived: $3,617

Total Taxes Collected: $166,718

Pretty small number for Riverdale's first tax collection, but I think I will change how much will be deucted, maybe I will do 20% or higher. I'm not sure yet. But I have two years left to decide. Not sure how much will be given to each department. I'll work on that later.

So here's the story...

Not sure what's all going on with my computer, but I'm pretty sure my motherboard is gone. My pc killed over last week. As of right now when I turn on the machine it comes on, but it doesn't make those beeping noses that it normally makes upon booting, plus the monitor doesn't produce a video. I even tried my other monitors. So for now I'm using one of my kids pcs. I'm hoping to find out what's wrong with my computer and get the replacment part(s) this week (hopefully). And the hubby will fix it. I hope to get back to simming soon. I miss my sims so much. :(
