Wow, it looks like we're in for a rough ride with our three new Bartow school board members. The 3 new members all voted to make newbie Davis Nelson chairman and newbie Angie Cornett Vice-chair.

Davis's brother Charles was fired last year and locked up by the GBI on enbezzlement charges involving Woodland High where he taught. Go back to 1998 when Davis was superintendent and he was canned for financial problems. The next year he had three allies elected to the board and they hired an outside auditing company to come in and clear Davis's name. Instead the auditor reported that $3.6 million had been misappropriated. Left egg on their faces.

Then the other newbie John Howard is running around acting like he is the king of the school system - micromanaging in violation of state law. Pray people pray.

ARE YOU JEALOUS???Just because Davis Nelson can hold down 2 different JOBS and you probably cant hold down one! Danny Deems is a fine upstanding citizen and a very good Lawyer! And as for your Smart Alec comment about Joe Edwards whats wrong do your dentures not fit? I know that he wouldn't stoop so low as to comment back but I sure as Heck will I know that he will be praying for you!!
God Bless you have a great day!!

Don't have anything agsint Danny or Joe, but Davis Nelson is bad news. He sweets talks everybody and acts like Mr. Christian, but his past is littered with people he walked over or tried to destroy. He wants to be superintendent again to thumb his nose in the face of those who exposed him. If I were current superintendent John Harper I'd watch my back. Davis is already working to try to run him off.

Nelson, sounds like a conflict of interest to me. Headmaster at Excel and Chairman of Board at Bartow County School. He's a sneaky snake, and everybody will know what he's up to before it's over with. As for Howard, he's just an idiot, he has said in public that he is only their for his daughter. What about the rest of the student's in Bartow County? Cornet, well you know, can't be trusted. She's all about herself.

Well Bartow voted for him & how you get what you ask for. Nelson has took down allot of people in his day. For a so called Christian he is the most evil man I have ever met. All the board members better watch their backs cause that man will turn on you in a heart beat to get what he wants. And that is POWER! and money. Better be watching to see if he gets his brother out of trouble, to clear the family name. You can thank all those parents up at White Elm for Howard, lets see if he come thru with all the things he promised them. As for Cornet, this is just a stepping stone for her, she is grooming herself for a house seat, just getting her feet wet. She made promises to board members then voted for Nelson, who in turn voted to have her a co chair....what a joke!
By the way can anyone tell me what the out come was on the Nelson/Maier scandal?

Maier being the compassionate man that he is, couldn't stand the thoughts of Nelson's daughter losing her teaching certificate. He had her dead to rights in court. He caved and ask only for an apology. Should have sent her and Nelson to jail. What a shame.

WOW, how in the world Nelson won over a man like that is beyond me! I have always heard great things about him, what a shame for the children of Bartow Co. I would have put them under the jail.

My brother Davis is a crook. He is not for the boy and girls, he is trying to pad his pockets. He is greedy, ask the members at Racoon Creek Church. Got over 4 million dollars for his place and can live there the rest of his life, has retirement from the school system, has rental property, and now he is head dick at Excel. Talking about greed, greed, shelfish, over bearing, power hungry, can not be trusted. Watch him screw up our school system again. It is coming, see how many good people leave our system. It took many, many, years to get the schools back on track, watch him destroy the schools again. More to come.

Superintendents are hired now, but back in 1992 Davis ran for superintendent agsinst Raiford Cantrell the incumbent. Cantrell's sister said a few things about Davis so he sued her and won forcing her to pay him thousands of dollars and wiped her out. He is mean and vindictive.

What is the story on Joe Edwards? I always thought he was a well thought of man around town? His wife is a joy to be around, too.

Would be interesting if one could get the minutes of the board meeting where he resigned. Maybe someone should use the "open records act" and ask for these. Might be reason to be fearful of him "getting his job" back.

AMEN, AMEN AND AMEN!!!!! I hope Dr. Harper realizes what he is up against. Evil, Evil and more evil....The 2 board members who are voting with him are just as guilty as he is. He has his eye on the Superintendent's seat and nothing will stop him til he gets it. A very sad day for Bartow County parents and students.

Perhaps you should try? Generally, personnel decisions are more difficult to obtain but you can certainly go for it. O.C.G.A 50-18-70. They have to respond within three business days and if you don't like the answer, there are other avenues
