This is not a great way to teach your kids if they cry enought they get what they want. Obviously Ace what you dont know about all this is that Reginas husband KILLED his first wife and they told NO ONE about his charges and when we did all find out about this it was just over looked. Im sorry if this the type of person that you want your children around but I on the other hand DONT think that him or her should be around children because all they are is criminals. To me this shows we care about who our kids are around. So I would like to thank all the people that voted for our kids.

There you go telling lies. If it is fact prove it! Fact is the "town" has bullied, cried, lied and maybe bought their way into county sports.You must be proud. The Rec board told you NO twice. So you put the pressure on poor old Bruce til he gave in.

I have no reason to come on here and lie about anything. I think you should ask him for yourself why do you think that they made the new rule that all volunteers had to have a back ground check and they have to tell the board when they get arrested and are not allowed to return until the court case is taken care of. I think that it funny that you say we bullied Bruce Hakwkins into voting for us so I guess we bullied the whole board then because he wasnt the only one that voted for the town. By the way Bruce Hawkins is a grown man and is able to make decisions on his own. But you know what if you want to continue to pay Reginas house payment then by all means you go ahead but I would rather not. Oh and by the way yes, I AM PROUD TO BE A CHARGER!!!!!!!!!

No you didn't bully the whole board you had Smith and Carswell on your side Bruce was the swing vote.A week earlier Bruce said a panel would be selected and the issue would be studied then meet back in Oct. Then a Special meeting was called less than a wk later. You know the story. You know the charges against Regina are false.
