A WORK OF ART


Everyone is used to seeing the great cathedrals of Europe, and revered public buildings in the U.S., under scaffolding as careful touches are applied to restoration projects. Entrance to the new Rockdale Intermediate School had much the same look last week as "skywalking" workers touched up the facade. The focus has shifted to interior work as builders race an Aug. 24 deadline. That's the first day of classes for the brand new 73,635-square foot campus and throughout the Rockdale ISD.
