|Don't be fooled by the scathing headline. This is a feel good story to kick off your weekend. Yesterday in Owings Mills, JA Biz Town was opened. The 10k SF city (with offices, stores, a healthcare center, newspaper office, and radio station) hosts 4th to 6th graders playing grown-up for a day. That means voting, going to the bank, running companies, and drowning their sorrows in a pint of Capri Sun.|
|The "city" is inside Junior Achievement of Central Baltimore's Owings Mills facility. IKEA Baltimore donated $14K in furniture and labor to modernize both City Hall and the kitchen/cafe. Above: IKEA's Rodney Whitacre and Dannielle Ellington, and Severna Park Elementary's Tyler Liberto, more famously known as Mayor of JA BizTown.|
|Mayor Tyler, Kayla Shabow, Elle Carson, and Abbi Jones sure look like they know what they're doing. Perhaps they have some advice for Congress on the fiscal cliff.|
