Hopefully the Principal at Booneville High will be next. Mr. Halter should have been fired for multiple reasons a long time ago. Mrs. Richardson should also be replaced. If your from Booneville, you know the story and you know why she needs to go back to Clarksville

Interesting to note--on the Boonville school district site, the May 14th board minutes have been delete!!!! This was the called meeting where the board took 20 minutes to "terminate immediately" Mr. Ashley. Strange those minutes were there yesterday--not today. Hmm

Sara I agree with you about Halter they need to clear him out also. Don't be so quick to do Gods judging for him. You should go get the book from Beth Moore When Godly People Do Ungodly Things! Sometimes we ALL get into things we shouldn't. Then later regret it and see our mistakes.God said YOU WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE! Sin is sin even if it is gossip or lying or steeling or judging or bearing false witness even if we think we are doing the right thing it's all the same. I don't know of one person on this earth that is not guilty of some sort of sin. Most of us try to avoid it at all costs. But some get caught up in it before they realize what has happened to them. It's still wrong on any account. But I think the fine gossiping rumor mill of Booneville AR. Should quit gossiping and judging things they are guessing about and just try to show a little of Gods forgiveness and move on to the next chicken to peck it to death so then they can move on to the next and so on. You know that's what chickens do they find one with a spot on it then they peck it till it's dead and then move on to the next one with a flaw. But they have pea size brains surely the people of Boonville are smarter then chickens OR are they? Maybe they are just so bored they have to do this to get their kicks. When you mess up and get led to sin are you the next chicken to be put to death? I hope you never slip up and get caught in a situation where the flock is after you. We all need to move on to taking care of our own lives then we wouldn't have time to try and destroy everyone else's. Don't judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes. Because no one knows the whole true story but those involved. In my experience in life and I'm not young we need to let the people involved in any situation take care of it and go on and take care of our own business I have plenty of my own to take care of so I don't have time to try and ruin someone else's life especially over gossip and rumors. Are you part of the problem or the end of the gossip and rumors like you should be! May God bless and forgive your faults unless or course you don't have any which I doubt! Come on people put it to rest it's over and done with. Maybe Bobby was railroaded. Or maybe there were other things involved so what! Let it go and move on to doing something good for a change! Especially you good christian people that work in school and are just as much of the problem as those in the community rumor mill. Walk a mile in Jesus shoes and see the diffrence it makes in you life and town!

Here's to "truth"! Keep telling yourself that it was a story, I'm sure that will work for you in the end! You know it was the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Lies don't always get people where they want to go, just most of the time liers get what they deserve. I so agree with informant 2, let things go, mind your own business, take care of your own families. This world would be such a better place.

From what I have "heard", the school board received transcripts of the text messages that were sent between the two (yes, phone companies can do this). If his cell phone was paid for by the school system this would have been public for the board. Apparently each member got a copy, and the messages were very graphic. I have "heard" that in one text they were laughing that the school board members were sitting at the table they had had sex on earlier. There were other names mentioned in the texts that were blacked out. Booneville is very small so it was not hard to figure out who was who. From what i understand he is now working in SE arkansas.

Everything you said is true except the last sentence and that rumor did to around for a while so it's understandable that you would "understand" that

I think I will take the advice my mother used to give me, " If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all!" Haha! Oh, but I have to say I agree with your opinion. Certain individuals love attention!!! LOL!!!

God considered gossip to be such a serious matter that He included the avoidance of it as one of the Ten Commandments. "Thou shall not bear false witness against your neighbor" (Exodus 20). When you repeat something you heard from someone else, or share a story where you're not 100% certain the facts are correct, or even share information about another person that will only bring them harm and not good, you are bearing false witness against them. Since the second greatest commandment is "Love your neighbor as yourself," you would be breaking that one as well by gossiping. Would you gossip about yourself to others? If not, then why commit that act against your neighbor?

Just a guess, but maybe the attorneys of one or more of the people accused of wrong doing on the other forum had the train wreck removed.
