that's a load of crap.

I didn't notice what kind of pianos they were and I'll go back and look in a minute but oianos have a life span of about 100 years and a piano that's only 7 years old is virtually a new piano.
Now, maybeb something happened to them to make them 'virtually unplayable' ..... but that would be on the people who didn't take care of them.
Plus .... old OLD pianos such as early Steinways and such are extremely desirable and are often just restrung and just keep on going.
I'm way oversimplifying when I just say restrung because you might get into things like the soundboards crown and such but you get the idea.
anyone in that organization that believes that pianos are replaced every 7 years is not competent enough to be doing that job.

I'd really like to research more into this and perhaps compose an editorial about it. I see so much of this shit happening with government and local organizations, it pisses me off, and they need someone to oppose them.

Some rich dude is gonna give them $140,000 for a new piano that they might not even need. What a waste.

It'll be neat for them to get an editorial from someone in florida who reads the paper online. (Probably good chance of it getting into the paper)

Heres the link to the editorial guy..

Here

The rules of submission are on that page, with contact info.

Thank you!!!!!!. This story really annoyed me. I'm just not knowledgable on the subject to offer opposition.

And my big question is.. If they get a new piano, are they going to wreck it in the same short time they did the last one?
