I haven't heard but knowing those clowns no telling what. They probably cut some more teachers pay so Ms Williams can go to another national conference. I know someone who seen her at a conference last month in New Orleans. She was on Bourbon Street. Your tax dollars at work folks.

Let me give you yet another example why this board is bad and not about ALL kids. At last nights board meeting two high school students were recognized by the board (given awards) because of scholarships they received. The two were Macy Mays (board member Margaret Williams niece) and Quintin Travis ( Jeff and Beth Travis son). Both very deserving of being recognized. But my point is why just recognize these two high school students for their scholarships? What about the other 75 or so seniors who will get scholarships as well? I'm sure their parents would like for their child to be recognized and a picture in the paper. My point is with this board it's all about WHO YOU ARE and not about what is fair. The same is true when they cut SOME SUPERVISORS pay and not others. The same is true about cutting some retired teachers pay (Interventionists) but not others. The same is true about preaching that there are budget problems and then post 10 new jobs. The same is true about saying we support all sports but give football additional coaches,$15,000 additional board money and buying them new uniforms just because the superintendent is best friends with the new coach. And this is just a small sample of what's going on.

I heard Richie Adcock resigned his board seat because the rest of the board voted to give Don's son (Ross, Lawton's Insurance) all of the school districts insurance which is about a half million dollars a year. Any truth to that?

I have heard that before, and it makes sense because the newspaper said Richey abstained from voting (I think that's right) on the insurance item. Another of his sons is a tech person at the board...wonder why there is a new tech wing going up at the high school. Students are not a consideration with this board....personal agendas only.

Isn't that illegal? The boards chairman's son gets all the insurance and another one working for the school system? I didn't think that was legal. I guess Don makes his own rules. Personal agendas is absolutely correct.

Not illegal unless it's turned in to the state.

No I think it's illegal whether it's turned in or not. It's just whether this board gets caught doing these illegal acts. It just doesn't seem right to me. I'm not a law person but it sure smells bad.

It is crazy, but as far as I know, true. And people are afraid for their jobs so they can't say a thing. Teachers, principals, staff are all accountable to someone higher up, but the board and the superintendent are not, and that is just scary crazy, having to wait it out til next election. Hoping that the public is made aware of what is going on before then.

What about that Leader News article on Adcock's resignation? I'm shocked that one of there own board members flu the coop and now is telling things like it is. My God this current board is so corrupt that no telling what's going to happen to our kids. All that taxpayer money blown and little spent on kids. Superintendent Don should waste his own money not taxpayer dollars.

It's just as much about "power" as about money. Remember Richey ran for judge executive not long ago, didn't make that, so he tried for school board! Sadly, he got that.

Yeah Don's nothing but an adult bully. He's not good for the schools being so power hungry. Nobody likes him or speaks good about him.

Yes Don is running things for sure. I talked to one person very close to this board and they said if anyone challenges Don he threatens their job or try's to intimidate them in some manner. He's always been that way. Wants to feel important and powerful but people are about to start speaking up and show how the four board members are in this together and do have agendas.
I don't think Don wants his skeletons revealed but it sounds like that closet door might be opening soon. The other three, Tartar, Williams, and Bowers are just puppets who can't think for themselves. But McCarty is the biggest puppet of all. I can't blame Adcock for leaving because this board is going down in history as being the most political, agenda driven school boards of all time. They can't hold a candle to previous boards and what they have accomplished for this county. But this board is big time gambling (like Tartar) with our children's future.
It is really a shame that so much lies in the hands of one person, and that the person has an agenda is beyond shame. I know for sure why people will not challenge him...they don't want to lose their jobs! I don't blame Adcock for leaving either...it must have been so frustrating to be voted down on everything or having the only vote for others. Why isn't there some sort of accountability for this board? I don't understand that.

I heard a funny one yesterday about board member Bowers. When the board interviewed for superintendent last fall there was an outside applicant they interviewed from Kenton County who had an educational doctorate. So Bowers seen his name at the interview Dr so and so and said I've got one question for you. Why do you want to stop being a medical doctor and come to Muhl Co to be a superintendent? Someone please tell me this is not true. If so is this an example of who is making educational decisions for our children?

Oh no...for goodness sake, I hope this is not true, but I have a funny feeling it is. My mission right now is to find out to whom the board is accountable. I would think it would be the community, but how does that work?

So there going to spend thousands of dollars to build ballparks at Bremen. Doesn't Little League play at west now or shortly? I guess Don is going to try and get some more tax money spent at Bremen. I'd say the money could be spent more wisely especially when some kids go hungry in the county.

Yes, in today's local paper, there is an article about the purchasing approvals by the board at the last meeting. It seems a new ball field at Bremen is going to cost approximately $300,000. Isn't that just a little bit high? Who is building the field? I bet they are kin to someone on the board! Also, I remember a time when athletic boosters (parents) had fundraisers for things like uniforms, new fields, seating, etc....when did the board become involved? Shouldn't the academic expectations be met before athletic endeavors? For $300,000, several new teachers could be hired to reduce student-teacher ration. That's just one thing I can think of that would benefit all students, not just the athletes.

Don't think so memo. Can't be slanderous if the remarks are true. Too many people in this county talking about actions of this board. Sad but true.

These complaints, though maybe valid to the people complaining, have missed the overspending and special treatments that occurred in the past regime. Instead of all the complaining, why don't some of you volunteer at the schools and not complain from your computer or other electronic device. I see other communities on this forum and most are positive and not this negative stuff that is on this site. Get involved and be a positive influence.
