Judge to Decide on Dale High School

After today's court hearing, a judge is reviewing evidence to decide whether Beaufort County will be able to build a controversial new high school. Although voters approved funding for the proposed high school in the Dale community, there have been a number of holdups.

The school district filed a lawsuit after the county's zoning board of appeals denied its permit request to build the school on Keans Neck Road near the Nu-farm chemical plant.

The judge is expected to have a decision in two to three weeks.
