Well Dakbury, here we are again. New link this time. Why did you request a new citation when you knew the old one was valid at the time of article modification?

http://www.jcfloridan.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=JCF/MGArticle/JCF_BasicArticle&c=MGArticle&cid=1173351738331&path=!news

Because that link was dead: "404 Error http://www.firn.edu/schools/jackson/sneads_hs/Pirate%20News%20.htm%7C1 has either been moved or does not exist."
When a link goes dead, it must be replaced by a valid link, as the material is no longer properly sourced. A reachable source must be there so other editors and readers can verify the information if they choose to do so. -- Donald Albury 00:33, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
I will add that I have to either use the Wayback machine to recover archived versions of dead links, or search for a new usable link, several times a month for articles I've created. Articles have to be maintained, which includes periodically checking that Web links still work.
The Wayback machine didn't work for the link above, BTW. -- Donald Albury 00:38, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
Oh, and your new link mentions a consolidation, but gives no details. -- Donald Albury 00:40, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
I wish I had kept the county paper, then I could just scan it in for you...

But, here is a currently available online source showing 'Grand Ridge High School' - School year ending 2006. http://search.fldoe.org/query.html?col=prod1&qt=+Grand%20Ridge&charset=iso-8859-1&ql=

Here is the current PK-8 listing for 'Grand Ridge School' from 'Great Schools' http://www.greatschools.net/modperl/browse_school/fl/1542

Now you should have plenty of detail, Grand Ridge was PK-12. Grand Ridge a(High) School was K-12 until the end of the 2006 school year (the fldoe site) Grand Ridge and Sneads were Consolidated at end of 2006 school year (the newspaper site) Grand Ridge is now PK-8 (the current 'great schools site)

Citations don't have to be from web links - you can site 'hard copy sources' - Which I would do for this mess, if I had kept the newspaper articles on it so I could properly reference them by publication date etc.... Next time I'm home I'll see if I can drop by the Floridan Office when its open and get that information so I don't have to play this game anymore.

Please stop removing the {fact} tag from the article without providing a citation IN THE ARTICLE. Per Wikipedia:Verifiability#Burden of Evidence, I could simply remove the paragraph, and you could not restore it without citing a reliable source. Provide the citations you have, but do not try to keep in material for which you cannot provide citations from reliable sources. As a simple rule of thumb, if you cannot find a reliable source for a specific fact, it probably is not significant enough to be included in Wikipedia. -- Donald Albury 11:50, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
Ok, now its in the article, (and I found a more recent newspaper article on the subject - Question should the 'merger issues' discussed in the article be part of the school article? -- in other words can I beet up the stub with that bit about the school rivals becoming a single school using the same reference?

I think what you are looking for is Wikipedia:Footnotes#Citing a footnote more than once. -- Donald Albury 16:52, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Sneads High School Logo.gif[edit]

I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Students[edit]

I am a current student at Sneads High School and I have to say that this school sucks Huge Balls. Never put your child in public school because it is schools like Sneads High School that make children stupid. Just kidding I love Sneads. Even though we are a small school we have many teachers who always go the extra mile just to help their students. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 150.176.81.226 (talk) 19:24, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
