Only 5 percent of students who applied to Stanford this year got in. That figure is less than half of what it was 10 years ago. What gives accepted students their edge?
Grand Canyon To Get Minor Face Lift For Now
TUSAYAN, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona is withdrawing a plan to expand the existing terminal at the airport just south of Grand Canyon National Park.
The decision comes after the Federal Aviation Administration told the state Department of Transportation that it would need an environmental assessment before adding 2,000 square feet to the terminal. Department spokesman Ryan Harding said the state determined that the assessment was not worth the effort or money. The expansion would have created a waiting area for passengers who had been cleared through security.
The department still has plans to replace the existing 8,850-square foot terminal to allow for commercial flights into the area, which would require a review of environmental impacts. For now, Harding said the department will give the nearly 50-year-old terminal a minor face lift.
