We just watch the school board meeting from Monday night. I am happy the valley is building a new school. Why not a new school. Cornett support for the new school changes with the wind. A professional flip-flopper. Anyone can talk about being a big education supporter. Betty has a voting record, anti-education. She never supports voting for any upgrades. Last night she call for the tie breaker to resign and pay back all the money he received on non voting nights. Cornett can't understand why the tie breaker votes against her. The tie breaker has voted pro-education. No big surprise. Maybe it is time for Betty to resign. Voters need to call for her to resign. As a long time citizen in Big Stone Gap, we are so tired of other towns making fun of Betty Cornett and the people who voted her in. End the embarrassment and resign.

Wow am I sorry for all the times I voted for Betty. I'm ashamed of it really. She has acted so ugly in all this.

I tell you what got me with Betty is how she went on and on and on about all the poor little people in Pound, Appy, St. Paul. Oh so pitiful that these poor little people was losing their schools. I tell you I saw right through that. ALL she wanted was a school in BSG. The minute she got that school promise she didn't give a dog's butt about all the poor little people who were loosing their schools in these other towns. She never lifted another finger to help them. Shame on Betty. She or her husband will NEVER have my vote again. I'll vote for the other party any day against the two of them. Wise co. forgive me for all the times I voted for her pathetic self. I don't care for Hypocrits!!!!

why am I not surprised that you have no idea what you are talking about? The country could not have gone Bush for "20 years" there are term limits - you are such an idiot. All over this board you are on various topics making your pronoucements as though they come down from on high when you couldn't find your way out of your own butt hole with a GPS, Map, Compass and Search and Rescue Team, take your own advice and just shut the h@!% up...

We all can hope that Betty does the right thing for Big Stone Gap and finally resign. Probably will never happen in a million years. We need to find a fresh face to run against Betty in the next election. We need someone who understands education. We need someone who will work for all the people in Big Stone Gap. Time to stand up for the students. It is time for a new school board member from BSG. Any good names?

I think it would be great if a retired teacher, someone with actual experience in education and also with name recognition, ran for the post...maybe Phil Robbins?

Phil would be much better than what we have now from District 3.

Phil Robbins would work. Anyone would be a upgrade. Any other candidate? Phil might not be interested. Phil does have a great background. Our town needs new blood on the board.

Maybe one of the other teachers/coaches that has retired from either Big Stone or Appy? I think it should be a former teacher and not some administrator. They need someone that knows what its like to work with kids. It wouldn't have to be a high school teacher either, even someone who taught middle school, that would really have the best interests of the kids at heart.

Tonight at the board of supervisors on television JH was complaining about tearing down the old school. Does JH want to keep the old powell valley school in front of the new union high school? Where do we find these people. You can bet that Coeburn would love a new school instead of trying to remodel the old school building. JH voted against extra funding for Coeburn. His voting record is called the anti-education supervisor. The people in BSG can do better. I sure do dread work tomorrow, my fellow workers will again be getting on me about BSG board members. I hate the day after board meetings.

Betty is anti-education. When has she ever voted for improving education. Voted against Eastside upgrades and anything to do with Central. She has made very few friends. How could Betty ever get any support for any needed upgrades for Big Stone Gap schools. We can do better.
yep

She is for education when it is for BIG StONE and no one else.

the woman suffers from a lack of education herself i still do not understand how someone with a grade school reading level, and poor spelling habits can sit on the school board ...wonder if she or her husband jh rivers is selling the white caddilac on 4th street in front of their house its sits in the driveway..wonder how much they are asking did they trade up...but then u know they dont make any money working on the boards that is why they keep trying to take pay away from the tie breaker..yeah way to make a living.hummmmmm

I am a Republican and I will NOT be voting for Betty again. I will vote for her opponent. She is a hypocrite.
