Are you kidding me? Gleason is a SAD town. If you do not play sports, or are a cheerleader or if not from a family that has money you are not anything in that town. I lived there for 28 years, believe me I know what I am talking about. Ashley is their "hometown hero" and in their eyes she can do no wrong. She has a black daughter, that is her business. Personally I don't like it but it isn't my concern. If she isn't qualified to teach or whatever she does no need to be doing so. However that being said, I am sure she knows ALOT more about basketball than "Coach Roney". That has got to be the biggest joke I have ever heard of in my life, when Jamie Roney was in school he totally sucked as a basketball player. That is why he was hardly ever allowed to play in any games. The only reason he has this "job" is because of his last name and because his dad is on the school board. And as far as Kay Hudson goes...the comment about her hair had me rolling. 1982 sounds about right! That is another person who has their job because of who they are, she hasn't earned it that is for sure. Her dad was a coach/teacher there for many years. Of course she is gonna have a job there, the world famous Gleason gym is named after her dad. The Dudley Sanders Memorial Gymnasium...what a joke! I know I have gotten off topic in the piece but it just goes to show how Gleason is. Many people hold that town so sacred and it just makes me laugh.

The Sanders family is one of the most amazing families I have ever met. AND my kids go to GLEASON school and love it more than anything. Ashley and Kay are great at what they do. I am so pleased that she will be giving lessons.. maybe we will take advantage of someone who cares about the children and allow both ladies to share their expertise! Kay is one of the GLEASON's finest teachers!

Ken Sanders is a great guy, nothing but respect for him. And his wife Valerie was always nice to me as well, so I cannot speak bad about them.

ashley mac is the greatest, most decorated athlete in gleason school history. she is the only person in this town to have played in the sec (and excel). she is a graduate of vanderbilt university. she has accomplished more in her 20 or 30 some-odd years than most people do in a lifetime. we should be THRILLED that a woman of her expertise and caliber is working with our children. I for one am praying to the gods that these asinine posts about her "mixed child" by all you good christian folks don't run her off ... guess you all are unaware that Jesus was black. The truth hurts.

Most of you all a racist pricks. i promise you if you were trapped in a burning building you wouldn't tell a black person no don't save me let me burn because you are black. yea maybe black people get a bad rap for crime but look at what "whites" have done do the economy. Which is worse?

A woman of her caliber? Are you kidding me? She had a relationship with a guy who was married and a kid without being married. What kind of child are you molding? A great ball teacher, yes. A great example for your children, no.

I grew up there and now I am even more glad than ever that I got out of there because of things like this. I think alot of people are just mad that it was Ashley that got out of there and did something with herself, and they were left behind. If someone moves away and works then retires from that job then moves back to live are they a failure? No. So maybe she was finished doing what she was doing and wanted to come back and raise her beautiful child in the place that she grew up and where she was happy as a child. This is the kind of gossip you get when you have a bunch of people that did not have the balls to make something of themselves. I commented bacuse someone asked me if i had seen this, now I am glad I never read this stuff. And it is way childish that anyone would ever talk about a child and that child's race. You must really have a problem with black people to say some of the things that are being said. I will pray for yall.

I guess most of the Gleason Clinic patents had rather be treated by someone other than a real doctor, but pay real doctor prices. How stupid is that?

I grew up in Gleason and even though I don't live there now, I still call it my hometown. I didn't grow up in a wealthy family. I worked at Steele Plant Company every spring from the age of 14 till I graduated and I can tell you that Mr. Dudley Sanders and his family were some of the nicest folks I've ever known. I'm proud that I was raised in Gleason and I wouldn't take anything for my childhood and my memories in Gleason. So, if you feel differently and only have bad things to say about my hometown---well, how do I say this respectfully? Oh never mind. Just bite me!
