So he coaches in millcreek, helped start travel basketball with the current head coach and I saw him sitting at a villa game giving high fives to villa parents. Also heard he is sending kid to villa ? And taking other girls from his team with him? Is this true? School board member who influences athletics and can manipulate for the benefit of his daughters team across town. Where do you start with this one? Conflict of interest? Ultimate backstabbing? Any thoughts?

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and the Iraq everywhere like, such as and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., and should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children.

Gossip prick? Bottom line is he is a sellout . He messed up the school project. He is a bully and in typical parent fashion is on the board for his own agenda. He ran off hetz to better set table for his son. Influenced girls hire and now after helping her likes the grass better on the other side. Better education at a catholic school lol . That's a good one. You get out of your education what u put in. He should have been fired from both coaching positions the minute it was rumored his daughter was going to villa. Plus his behavior as coach is an embarrassment to the profession. Typical parent. Red fox stay of the sight if you can't handle people talking about you.

Palermo - the pompous , arrogant a -hole - just like Scutella and Wuenchel is seeing the writing on the wall. He'll be done after this term for running the school district aground and doesn't want his spoiled little brat of a daighter to take the brunt of his abuse. Wuenchels kids went to Mercyhurst Prep. Hall's kids are being home-schooled .

Winchel's son went to Prep, not Mercyhurst. Hall's kids are older and he only has one left in school; she attended Asbury then moved to Tracy when the closings changed boundaries. He mentioned it on the news at the time, both tv and ETN. Pay attention.

Are athletics the only thing Michael Palermo cares about? Seems very clear the answer is YES. He pushed and pushed to get his $10million dollar field, with more seating than would ever be used unless it was a Prep game. Then Palermo went in with Brian Kramer and wanted the full 8 tracks for another $300,000.

Palermo's arrogance was MULTIPLIED when he affirmed Scutella's moronic explanation of over $500,000 dollars gone to HRLC for planning and over 40 board meetings\time spent on the new school was simply - "It was well spent because those plans are on file and can be pulled anytime."

One thing is for sure. We can't pull $500,000 out of the general fund now to help our district meet ends meet.

Here are some facts. McDowell girls basketball program has turned into a complete disaster. The head coach was a 6th grade coach and should not be coaching at all. I have heard she messed up really bad on the Florida trip and is hanging on for dear life to last the year. While sports is not the only factor in choosing a school it gets more important the more talented you are. I think mikes kid is very talented. No one goes to college for free at McDowell. Bad program, bad staff, no connections. Every year kids go to school for free at villa. I think you have to do what is best for your kid no matter what the tough guys say on topics. I would argue he would be hurting his kid by keeping her at McDowell.
Also the comment that Palermo ran Hetz out by that other poster is comical. The entire millcreek basketball community had enough of that guy. Are you serious. Looking at the boys program now it was a great decision.

Pretty sure as well the last three years all the McDowell kids have gone to Villa to get away from that program. This is not a Palermo or villa problem...this is a McDowell having a terrible program problem.

Another misinformed parent. If the girls coach messed up in Florida then so did the boys coaches. Better check your facts before spouting off. Typical forum posted. Posts RUMORS without knowing the FACTS. If the girls coach gets canned for Florida then they all get canned. Bottom line millcreek had a coach in the system recruiting girls to go to catholic school. Sellout!

Why is it that most "improvements" get made at McDowell? And a large part tend to deal with sports in some fashion? Kids aren't transferring to McDowell because the sports are to die for. Mercyhurst Prep has the arts as their niche. Academy....academia. Prep....sports. We need to stop pretending that we are a sports school. It doesn't draw in huge multi million dollar donations from alumni now does it. We need to have our own niche. Furthermore, logically....in a time when we need to take the next ten years attracting new kids to offset the large dying/moving to Florida/moving into a home ...elderly population. Shouldn't we be investing mainly in our five elementary schools? The middle schools seem to be performing well after they were heavily invested in. Do you think most McDowell kids transfer to the district....or come up in the ranks starting with elementary school. Logical?

Someone at Millcreek is sleeping at the switch. A mass exodus over to Villa. Millcreek better look at themselves in the mirror.

Kettle the rumor I was talking about is the one about the Florida trip. Better check your facts. First post isn't rumors either you ass monkey. The kept his job as a coach as he recruited kids to another school and he can't be fired cause he's on school board. And if you said anything to him you better watch out for the war path he would go on. There is your problem with the basketball program right there u idiot. Coach who took the job to help build the program and the travel team in turn pulls his kid and others instead of staying loyal to his head coach. If you don't see that as an issue your a bigger idiot than he is. He's should be fired now. He still coaches the boys wow

What about the last three years? Why have all the basketball players chose to pay to go to villa? I'll wait for that answer. This is the problem with millcreek. They blame others instead of looking at the root cause. Millcreek kids are not going to villa because Palermo says...they go because the girls program from the head coach down is an absolute joke.

The only hope McDowell has is to fire that totally useless staff that have brought the program to new levels of ineptness.

Tatonka honestly....do you think McDowell has a good program with good coaches? They are awful. My kids have graduated but if I had to do it over again I would do what these parents are doing and sent my kids to villa as well.

Let's see villa catholic school who has bs all star team of chosen athletes. Beating triple a schools. You can't compare. Catholic against public in the entire state is a joke. You can call it a better program but the playing field in pa basketball is slanted period! So I would hope with the massive feeder program that villa and hurst have they better beat everyone. Have em play quad a or in their own league and then we can talk.
