This came from the PG topix board.

Yes it was decide to night in executive session. They will release the info tomorrow but here is the early scoop. Starting with third nine week period, some time in January (according to snow and weather closings) all Thomas Walker student will be bused to Lee County High School in Ben Hur. They will also close Ewing, Rose Hill,and Ely Dale and those kids will be at Thomas Walker Elementary School. Sticklyville, and Keokee are also being closed and merged into Pennington Middle school and Dryden and St Charles Elementary Schools. Any teacher, staff or other employee under 4 years of employment will be let go a that time and the remaining employees will staff the remaining schools. This will save the county school system $12.6 million a year. This will give the school system a $3.8 million a year surplus to operate on and that way they can maintain the status quo. This is what was decided in executive session tonight and will be handed out and finalized by the end of the year.

This is crap, Thomas Walker is not closing. Call the school board if you want to know the truth.

I am stunned that someone would post such a lie. What could possibly motivate someone to do such a thing? Possibly trying to get elected to District 1 School Board. Stop with the ridiculous lies. Mr. Chadwell would never support closing Thomas Walker and we ALL know that in District 1.

Can assure you this did not come from the other candidate. He never deals in dirty politics like his opponent. Think again!

Again, the other candidate in District 1, (not Kyle Chadwell) would never state anything that is not true and nobody has ever heard him say this. He does not deal in dirty politics as his opponent does. The facts tell all.

Oh really! That's very strange as we know that he tried to lie and try to pull a big one on the schools in his district. He got caught lying and had to back track...can't trust the man...ever...or his wife.

I am assuming you are talking about the present board member. His opponent does not have a girlfriend.

This is on the Pennintgon Gap site:

Pete Sumpter? Heard he did $26,000 worth of renovations to the Lee High Football press box over the summer with out a bid or a contract. Sounds like someone is lining their pockets at our expense.

There are several post on it and someone said that the supervisors are talking about it. They have a copy of the bills he submitted for the work.

If he did do the job he more than likely did it at cost....or often dealing with school systems, you go in the hole when providing services to them.

Uh was it not Elydale that caused schools to be closed last year for roof leaks. If it is it in better condition than the others, I pity the kidsat some of the others, they must stand outside all day because of no roofs! LOL. Get a life man, 20+ years ago we consolidated schools because of bad conditions and it still has not helped the condition of the buildings. With the enrollment numbers we can not afford to keep the smaller schools open. I agree that Elydale has better facilities than Ewing but the roof at Elydale has to be fixed or they will come in and close it for the county! I heard the rumor was started by PH & PS to give them a edge in getting re-elected. One wants to line his pockets and the other wants to empty ours!!

Many of the schools need work. The rooms are too small, no storage, heating/cooling, insulation, lighting,electical wiring, handicap access,driveways for buses,cars and service trucks, and sports fields are all areas that need improvement. And all it takes is funds!
