Towns just down the road from us have no problem firing their staff for sexual misconduct allegations(, binghamton, harpursville). Its only in Marathon that we allow this type of stuff to go on for over 20 years and keep the people on staff.

Hey, wait a minute...that guy sat on a male student, raised his shirt and touched his bare skin ON A BUS FULL OF OTHER STUDENT WITNESSES! He also tweeted the young boys with inappropriate content. GET THE WHOLE STORY.

BHS had FACTS and WITNESSES! If this was happening at MHS for 20 years, this current alledged incident would have opened the flood gates of past misconduct and victims would be coming out of the woodwork.

All we have here is "frothing at the mouth" attention seekers pushing dirt obtained from old rumors. Rumors don't cut it.

Careful now rumor mill....do you have any evidence James is not guilty because 2 more reports were made on Thursday and these reports are not he said/she said.....because there are witnesses. Furthermore, rumor mill, if the Marathon High School is so convinced of his innocence why has a teacher been hired to "shadow" this teacher all day, everyday....Yes, that's right. A retired teacher is in his classroom from opening bell until he leaves..........

And enough of the "attention seeker" bull..........why did your trusty track coach decline a polygraph when suggested but the young lady volunteered to..........hhmmmmmmm and that, you attention seeking hypocrite, is fact.

I've been reading this forum for days. Pretty amusing.
They put a teacher in there to maybe pacify you, but you can't pacify ignorant bullies. Wait, before you read something ignorant into that, pacify until the perp can be LEGALLY charged. The school wants to get a pervert off the streets. Unlike you bunch of asshats, who just want to pass the buck. Maybe the school wants to do the right thing, unlike you idiots. One thing I can say, is the pro Todd people seem to be a little more educated than the people who are totally failing at protecting the so called victim. Nice move by the father to run for office, so that the whole world knows who the real trouble makers are. You didn't protect her at all. Your not the only asshats in this town, it's full of them and now they know who to direct their anger at. Good job!
The protectors are rude and after reading the other stream, they appear to change and use each other's names like dirty underwear. Yah, I said dirty underwear, because it's a lot of shit. Then when they say something really freakin stupid, they go back and delete it of maybe this forum has a stupidity clause and they removed it, either way it disappears. Convenient!
I WAS a sympathizer for you and the family. Thought you were doing the right thing, until I read the crap that's come out of this cesspool. You should be ashamed of yourselves!
Go back to the hole you climbed out of.

As a former student of BHS and Mr. Kimberly's, this was not even close to ongoing abuse or some sort of perverted act that you people suggest it to be. His problem was that over his years of teaching he became a little unprofessional, if you will. For example, he did not like to get people in trouble if they did something wrong. A person sleeping in class was not sent to the office or given detention, Kimberly would toss a hand sized soccer ball at the person. It was pretty hilarious if you ask me. The reason he had so much outside communication with people is because he was a coach, and he regularly took us on field trips across the country. He taught multiple levels of Criminal Justice, after the years a lot of us would consider him a friend and someone we would go to for advice. The bus incident was due to him acting unprofessional and nothing more. A fight on the bus would mean suspension, loss of privileges, etc. Instead of doing that he got into the mix of the fight/rough housing on the bus. He would never strike a student, so his actions were limited to causing the instigator extreme embarrassment in front of everyone else. His wife was a teacher and his daughter was in the peace corps, I remember his daughter coming to class to talk to us and give us a presentation. Stop suggesting the guy was a homosexual child abuser and molester.
