So now that baseball/softball season is over...what is everyone's take on how the recreation dept. is being ran. There were a lot of discussions earlier in the year about Sharon....Opinions now?

I don't have any children in the rec dept., so I'm not really qualified to answer THAT, but I do want to mention that Ms. Sharon COULD be a bit more friendly, considering she is a public figure and paid by the people she's often a little nasty to. I don't dislike her per se; I just think she's not very nice.

As a parent who does have a children involved in the rec. dept. programs I agree Sharon could be friendly. But don't hold your breath on that one. She is a vindictive liar who if you make her mad takes it out on your children. I've seen it first hand as well as many others parents. Just like what's going on right now with the FALL BALL PROGRAM. How come so many parents forked over money for their kids to play in the program but yet to find out she keeps only her "PICK" after practice for the "SPECIAL" team? Then she recruits kids from other counties to play on this "SPECIAL" team that she could have picked other BACON COUNTY kids from. What's up with that? Is she not the REC DIRECTOR, totally different job description from COACH or even ASST. COACH. What's up BOARD MEMBERS? The Director should be directing not hand picking kids from neighoring counties after we as parents have paid money for OUR KIDS to play on a BACON CO TEAM. But all she CARES about is winning regardless of the children or the love of the game. Crap such as this is why you have disgruntled parents & TAXPAYERS!! Plus, what does she ever do for the BASEBALL TEAMS? NOTHING!!! I don't know about you but Sharon & her minions need to GO!!!

Sharon in a very rude person. You try to ask her a question and she pops off at the jaw toward you. Her and her assistance needs to find another job because they are not in the right seat for the job they are doing. One day she is gonna meet her match. She is gonna pop off at the wrong parent and they gonna pop her right back. I mean these are children they are dealing with every day. They are not organized at there at all. I do agree with some of the others. She has her favorites. If you dont have a lot of money you are not one of the favorites and thats the truth. I've saw it may times before. Darn give other children a chance too......but whatever!!!!!

Does Sharon even like men? Never married, never dates men, doesn't have anything to do with male sports programs at the Rec Dept.,? Would it be fair to question whether or not she actually likes men? Has she ever coached a baseball team or a football team that represented Bacon County Rec Dept.? Why does she only coach girls softball?

Who gives a shit this is about fairness of young kids in our rec dept not as bacon county turns. So unless your the one hes married to... they are grown and can do whatever the hell they like.

If everyone feels this way, then why is she still the Recreation Director. Does your Rec. Board not care what you think? I'm sure they could find someone who knows how to treat people better and cares about the job they are doing.

The Recreation Dept. is not owned by the rec. board, it is owned by the citizens who pay taxes. step up and voice your opinions. i highly doubt any board members are scanning this forum, get to the board meetings and speak up. don't think it would do any good??? well take the next step and go to the city and county who appointed your rec. board.

My daughter was once one of the under dogs of sharon. She does have her picks the ones that she likes on her team maybe 6 or 7 of them she will load up take to the movies or she will even take them out to eat . When it comes to the girls and the team she is coaching she is very unfair . Go to the rec and look at the girls softbal feild its always clean grass is always cut the field is always raked . Then look at the boys fields she could care less . A lot of the problem is the parents that want to kiss ass to her and take her out to eat just so there daughter can get a good playing spot or get more time in a game . So if your daughter is going to play ball this year parents be aware of sharon !!!! I'm just saying

You people are crazy...Sharon does a wonderful job. Our fields are super, everything is always
soooo organized and sharon and her little helper are the sweetest most caring women you will ever meet. Sharon is completely fair, and this department could not be in any better condition than it is now!!!(This is my assumption of what the Rec Board thinks)

What is wrong with you people ? Its like for a change the girls are getting reconition and its still not good enough for you . I have watched ms. sharon take kids during the season that none of the other so called coaches did not want because the kid could not catch a ball but by the end of the season this same kid could catch ,throw, and hit this is what the rec dept is supposed to be about not a bunch of wineing and crying parents that does not get what they want or your kid put on the team you wanted . If you are so brave toget on here and down someone that puts in countless hours to make the youth of alma better then why dont you step up and try it for one year and listen to all that coaches have to put up with and tnen you may have a better understanding for the way people act,people talk to you or even the way YOU start getting treated . All I know is that she teaches the basics which is over looked now days because its all about winning , and also look how it has helped our middle school and high school programs no one wants to admit that all of the winning that has been going on started at the rec program so before you bash why dont you try your hand at coaching then come back and give us a full report on how easy it was for you..........

@ Got A Lot To Do..... I think you are missing the point. Sharon may be a good coach and has possibly helped many young girls develop into fine ballplayers. But the fact is, she gets paid with OUR TAX MONEY to be a DIRECTOR, not a COACH. if she wants to coach and is good at it great, fill out a coaching application and have a ball. But I think most citizens want her to focus more on what she actually gets paid to do. there are many areas at the Rec. dpt. that need more attention and better management. more income needs to be brought in, fields need major improvements, organization needs improvement and attitude and people skills need major major work. so put coaching aside and evaluate on what she gets paid to do. Good coach...no doubt. i'm sure a new director would have no problem letting her volunteer her time. but it should not be done at the expense of taxpayers while neglecting her duties.
